Enter into Door13

Posted on

Here we go! As I mentioned yesterday, I’m going to kick off the tour of Condo Leach by showing the entryway and living room. I still have major plans for both places, but this is where I am today. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts!

I still need to get closet doors so all my junk is hidden…that’s coming soon! I plan to buy doors and paint them now that the weather is cooler. As I mentioned in my Weekly Tidbits post yesterday, I also found a dining room table on the side of the road (can’t believe I’m admitting that), so that’s a new addition to the living room, but I still need to figure out where to put it! There will be some new photos coming up of new furniture placement once I decide.

What’s my favorite feature of the entry and living room, you ask?! That’s the double doors that open out to my deck. I love opening it when I get up on weekends and having the natural light fill the living room.

Here are some additional plans to the entry and living room…

  1. set up a table in the entry way where I can put my mail and keys when I get home at night
  2. reupholster the 2 chairs
  3. find a mirror or artwork for above the fireplace
  4. hang 3 floating shelves next to the magazine artwork

Any other ideas on what I should do to spice up the entry and living room?!?!

Get ready for a “tour” of the kitchen tomorrow!


Tour de Condo Leach

I’m long overdue to share some pics of Condo Leach. I’ve decided to breakdown the tour by sharing each room separately. To kick off the tour tomorrow, I’ll be sharing pictures of the entry and living room. Stay tuned!

Weekly Tidbits – week of 9/12

Posted on

What a great week! ๐Ÿ™‚ So sorry I’m so overdue on my Weekly Tidbits posts. Here are a few things that made my week…

Finally got a dining room table! Just need to fix it up a bit since I found it on the side of the road, LOL! Pictures to come on that. Now I’m on the hunt for some fun chairs. Can’t wait to have people over and offer them a place to sit and eat. Lol.

Got to meet baby Nolan at work – such a cutie! And mommy Megan looked great and very happy!

Using my childhood dresser in the bedroom for some extra storage. It’s white so it mathes my skinny white dresser that I used in NYC. Found some knobs at Anthropologie to dress it up a bit since the original drawer pulls were definitely 1990s. I also got a mirror at Home Goods that I’m going to spray paint a fun color to match my winter bed spread whenever I get that. I’m thinking yellow or sea foam green. Will keep you posted on the final decision!

And…I finally got my promotion at work!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve known it’s been coming, but was losing patience waiting for it. Now I can explore new positions and make a lateral move.

Trip to the Villa since Shannon was home from FL. Love the Villa and LOVE my family! We laughed so much today!
