Making the Move

Hi y'all, I have been busy as a bee this week! We were able to purchase the new home this week ! I am sooo excited about moving closer to work and making a nest together. As you may remember, I sold my house last week and we are currently living in my husbands home. I have a million ideas swirling through my head and cant wait to implement them in our new home. Here is a quick picture of the new kitchen. I am having mixed reactions from friends about the two colors of the kitchen. I personally love it. I think it really is a great idea to update an out of date kitchen. This house was built in the 1980's, so the cabinets show the dated construction. I simply cannot replace the entire kitchen cabinetry, so that is where paint comes into place.
I also found this great fabric today and am trying to find a great thrift chair that I can recover to place in the living room! It has the appearance of embroidery and I love the apple green in the details. I found this at Hancocks fabric 50% off.
We will have a breakfast nook in the house and I found this great table on clearance. I think I love it, but still looking for other possibilities. What do yall think??? Pair with some vintage thrift chairs, cover in black toile????
Now, I love this fabulous old fashioned chair and just cant get it off my mind. I hate it when that happens!!!! This chair is very costly, so I am looking for a cheaper alternative. I need this in my bedroom, to relax in and read a good book!
I will post pictures of the new house soon. We will close at the end of the month. I have tons of packing to do. Planning on a huge yard sale to get rid of the extras and hoping to furnish the house to MY taste!!! Right now we have a hodge podge of furniture from both of our homes. We plan to keep the desirable and pass the rest on to our 7 kids!!! Now, if I can just figure out what to do with all of the duck pictures, hunting gear and Harley stuff!!!! I think we need a shop decorated in man cave style!! Just kidding, there is a den and plan to incorporate all of hubby's stuff in his room. I want simple cozy, casual and comfy in the living area.

Have a great week and see ya soon!
