Tour of My Home

The blogger powers at be will not let me rest. I've been putting off posting pictures of my place because I feel like it's just not quite there. There are a few more things I want to do, we're getting new doors this week, I need to hang a few more pictures. But a little taste of Casa De Pace: Ab's room, bathroom, and our itty bitty office.

Yes, it is that pink. The room glows. It is very youthful, very girlie, very Abbey. I painted the dots in different shades of pink; I thought doing the whole room would be overwhelming--both in execution and in observation. So the dots cover one whole wall and spill a few feet into the next wall. And just this week I finally found a use for the cubby hole cabinet. I've held onto it for a good three years now thinking there HAD to be something. Baby shoes. Perfect.


J and Mom did the moulding in the bathroom, doesn't it look great? It makes our tiny bathroom look a little more spacious somehow. J found that mirror on an unbelievable deal--I need to post a picture of the one that used to hang there. Blah.
And the office. Another re-do. There was this horrible wallpaper border and the walls were painted the color of...oh, I don't know...red brown burnt casserole?
