The house is two story, but we very rarely use the upstairs. We don't even really use all of the downstairs, but anyway. This is where we live. Welcome to "The Robinson's!"
Walk up the front steps and through the front door, this is the first thing you'll see!
Look to the right and you'll see the "Reading Nook". Don't tell anybody but the curtain hides a door that I don't really like. ;)
Walk straight past the staircase and into "Living Room."
Or, if you're still at the front door you can look the the left and see the "Formal Dining Room."
See the collage of pictures on the wall, toward the right? If you turn there, it takes you into the kitchen.
At the far end of the kitchen, there's a little table where we sometimes eat.
If you turn left right before the refrigerator, there's a door that takes you to the mudroom. You can see a door that leads to the outside deck between the house and the garage. Off the mudroom, to the right, is a half bathroom.
Turn around, and go back out into the kitchen. You'll see.."The Living Room"
|Recognize the chair?! :)|
Our bedroom and the shelves/entertainment stand share a wall.
This little area has no name. Straight ahead is a small bathroom, with closets on each side. To the right is our bedroom and to the left is a room that will one day be a walk in closet.
And then, if you go back out into that little hallway, the room that's across from our bedroom that will one day be a closet (and remember the door behind the curtain when we first walked in?) Don't judge me...but this is what it looks like right now.
Well folks, that concludes the tour of the first floor of our home. Before you go thinking we're all kinds of loaded with dough or anything, let me tell you that the only things WE own are a sofa (with a cigarette burn in a cushion), a love seat, and two tv's. All of the furniture pictured in our home belongs to my parents...and if we move out, we don't get to take it with us. So, there ya have it. And before you go thinking how lucky we must be to live in such a nice house, fully furnished with lovely things, let me tell you how many times we argue over cleaning this big o' house. It takes a lot of work to keep their stuff in tip top shape, clean, and the yard looking nice. It's a lot of work. But, it's home and we love it here. =) It's quiet, peaceful, and we couldn't ask for a better opportunity.
Oh...and yes, I know how ugly the valances are. They will be replaced as soon as we can afford it. =)
