home tour: for now

Welcome to part one of the "for now" home tour.  

For now,
because we have a lot of stuff we still want to do on every single room of our house.

But if our last house was any indication, it is going to take us a very very long time to get those things done...
we're the type of people who start a project (like crown molding), get almost done,
look at the nail holes that need to be filled and corner that needs to be finished
for two long years,
and then take 20 minutes to finish it up the week before we move out of the house.
We're just awesome like that.

I'm going to show you what our house is like,
for now.
And I'll show off our updates as they come along, little by little.

Yay for the tour! Looks like fun. I really want to paint everything here too (the paint is so thrashed) but Dallin is not wanting to do THAT project (just everything else. You know him...Ha!)

It's so pretty and I love the natural light. Can't wait to see more!

Looks great so far, lots of fun stuff to go up :) I think your collage wall over the stairs is going to look awesome. I know the feeling of taking a while to get projects done. I often can be the same way!
