Since we spent the whole day getting the house Impending-In-Law-Visit Clean, I figured I'd finally put together the whole-house-tour I've been meaning to do for the last, you know, year or so. Sadly, the light was going fast and the pictures aren't what I hoped they'd be - enjoy, regardless!

Off the living room is Austin's office. It's the least "finished" room in the house, probably because it's not mine and I can't just go in and get it done :) I wanted to share a couple of pictures of it anyway, though, because I love how it's coming together.

There's a desk chair, but it's this huge black monstrosity that needs replacing badly, so I decided it wasn't photo-worthy.

Pretend you've walked back into the living room, then through into the dining room, which we do call the dining room despite its obvious lack of dining facilities.

Off the dining room is the freshly-redecorated guest bedroom. We managed to pull it together without actually buying anything new, except for paint and a map of Atlanta, which is framed on the wall opposite the bed. I sort of couldn't believe how very much STUFF we had stashed all over this tiny, storage-space-less house.

The guest bathroom is also off the dining room.

Onwards to the kitchen, in which we actually dine.

My, that photo's wildly crooked, sorry.

Off the kitchen is our bedroom. Wait, what? Yes, off the kitchen is our bedroom. It was an addition (sometime in the 70s or 80s, as best we can guess), and not really all that well-planned (or -executed, for that matter).

I shared photos of our bedroom pretty recently, and I don't think much as changed, but for completeness' sake I'll include a couple here.

We've got a bathroom, too.

That's about it! Thanks for looking.

I *love* your guest room. The bed frame, the lamp on the nightstand, the little owl. It looks great. I really like the horizontal panel door. Where were you able to find a plain solid blanket for the guest bed? We are shopping for bedding for our guest room and everything we have seen has patterns and comes with matchy match sets. We would love to get a blanket just like yours in a tan.

I also love the wall color you have in your dining room. And the exterior door in your kitchen! That is the exact door I want for our front door, but we probably won't replace that until next summer. And your headboard in the master bedroom is gorgeous! Did you make that?!

Also, Austin's office looks really cool. Holy CDs!

Pretty much I just love your whole house and want to go shopping with you.

Thanks! I love those doors, too. The blanket on the guest bed is a duvet in a cover...I got it from Garnet Hill originally, years ago, but solid colored duvet covers aren't hard to find. It actually has Austin's old plaid comforter in it, ha.

I did not make our headboard, but I'm impressed with your confidence in my abilities! It's a wall panel from Pier One (again, ages ago). I really wanted (and kind of still want) this bed frame, in chocolate from West Elm, but the wall panel was a whole lot more affordable.

I love your whole house, it's so well decorated!

Thanks! Most days I love it too, when it's not misbehaving.

I love it all so much!

The built-ins! The photo wave! The bedroom book "shelf"! The wine cabinet! The dogs!

Thanks, thanks! I know, the dogs (who normally flee the camera) wandered into every third shot. It doesn't help that we're dogsitting right now so there's an extra, even.
