We have been living in our house for a year already! What? I don't know how that's possible, but anyway. I thought it would be fun to take you on an updated house tour to show you some of the things I've done over the past year. We still have a list of home projects to do that I need SOMEONE (ahem, Jordan's) help with, but since I am the woman, I handle all decorating. Because here in the Bumgarner household we feel very strongly in maintaining gender stereotypes. Hashtag feminism.
I've linked to the original post where appropriate so you can go back and see the comparison. Here I linked to a photo of our living room originally, and below is how it looks today!
I have not had a full-sized couch since moving to Oklahoma eight years ago! Our white love seat was big enough for two people, and having a couch that you can actually stretch out on is the most magical thing ever.
Right behind the wall where the couch is, is an office/dining room-type area that right now houses my desk. Below is a before/after shot of how this space looks. I still need to clean up this area and get shelving, but for now I'm happy that I'm at least moving in the right direction. Below is before. Note the chandelier and the blank wall.
On to our bedroom. I bought this awesome two-sided laundry hamper from Wayfair, which we love. Jordan's work clothes get all dirty, and I have my running stuff, so we wanted a hamper where we could separate that stuff from our nicer clothes. Anything with "special instructions" (hang dry, whites, delicates, etc.) goes in the right. We just take out the entire bag, dump it in the washer, and done! No sorting necessary.
So that's what we've done so far! Of course there are a lot of other projects on our list, including a new oven, new dishwasher, back patio furniture and putting up a new canopy, window curtains for the front room and kitchen, a screen door for the back. That's just for starters. I'm so thankful for our house and love the improvements we've been able to make this year!
