Welcome!

Welcome to the inside of our new home. This is the entryway...foyer...whatever you want to call it. It kinda makes me want to put a fancy table in the middle of it with an overly obnoxious floral arrangement on it....like a soap opera house...lol. Oh and btw...my niece and nephew are like "Where's Waldo" in most of these photos of the inside. I enjoyed spending time with them this weekend.

I love the stairs. I have NEVER lived in a two story home. All this woodwork was done by hand by the previous owners. When we moved into our home they were telling us about sanding and varnishing it all. Lots of hard work!


See that kind of dark brown painted area! It goes in about a foot. I can't wait to create a cute vignette to decorate it. I see baskets and flowers and a quilt. I also see the need for a very tall ladder...and maybe a net to catch me if I fall! lol



I have never had a skylite in my home. See it over the front door over there?! This is the little "landing" at the top of stairs under the windows. They had a loveseat sitting there. Not sure what I want to put there. Any ideas?!


Didn't they do an amazing job on the wood. I think they would be glad that we are moving in here.


Here's that little area at the top of the wall. I was surprised to see the wood "floor." I think that is even a plug in over there. Hmmm...


Next I will show you where I am going to be scrapping and creating!


PS...If any of you all have ideas for decorating or using a certain area please speak up! I am new to a lot of these features in a home. Our current home is nice, but it is really square and plain jane...not alot of personality.

If you ever pass through Wapakoneta, Ohio there's this great little (huge) store called Casa Chic. They have great prices and beautiful stuff! You should check them out...and take the girls to the Neil Armstrong museum while you're in town!

I'm with Gigi -- I'd put a reading area in that nook. A chair and a small book shelf -- or even one of those table/lamp combos with a basket underneath.

What great house! Congrats! Can't wait to see more!

That is a great home. No wonder so many people wanted it!

I agree on the reading area for the little nook. That is the first thing I thought of when I saw it! Perfect spot for a nice rocker, little table, lamp and a lovely quilt!

The woodwork is amazing! Done with lots of love! I think the previous owners are smiling down knowing that your family will fill their home with love!

Can't wait to see the rest of the house...

I feel so unoriginal, but I immediately thought of a little reading/sitting area too.

I'm loving it so far! So fun.

How did reading nook NOT pop into my head?! I think you guys are right! I could totally see an overstuffed oversized seat with a pretty lamp and throw. During the day the light from the windows would be great!

I love the wood work, and the openness.

Great idea to have a reading nook!
