Take a peek inside our place

Several people have asked for more photos of our condo, so here you go. The building was built in the 1920s. We wanted a place that had a great big living room so we could have lots of people over, but units just weren't made that way. Then we saw this place, and the seller agreed to knock down the wall between the living room and dining room. Perfect! So there used to be a wall behind the couch. Now there's just a pillar, there on the left.

All our furniture is assemble-it-yourself stuff we've accumulated from Ikea or Lowes or Target, except for the couch and chairs from Dania. The light over the table is a Home Depot find that only took us 2 hours to put up. :)

We decided to repaint every room in the place. This is Behr "Expedition Khaki" if you're curious. I painted all the wall art (except for the brown diamond shape behind the dining table; that's a cool woven tray from a friend) and sewed all the pillows and coasters. See more paintings here if you want. The whole reason I started painting anything is because we had empty walls, and it's cheaper to make stuff yourself.

Those are modular Flor carpet tiles and an $8 Target floor lamp.

Our old wicker chair and Walmart lamp got spruced up with pillows and an Ikea lampshade. That lampshade might be my favorite thing in the room.

This is the first time I've ever decorated anything, and I think it's responsible for unleashing a love of design I didn't even know I had. We feel very blessed to have this place. If it should burn down someday, that's okay, because material things are just temporary, but in the meantime, I'm having lots of fun.
