Home Tour, Pt. I

I thought it might be nice for you to get a little tour of our current home before we start changing things around and packing it all up. I wanted to start with pictures of the outside of the building but, unfortunately, didn’t snap photos of it before it started pouring down rain today, so those will need to wait for another post. We live in one of four units in a 100-year old building and our apartment used to be a butcher shop! It was attached to King Grocery, which has now been updated to a yoga studio run by my landlady.

Let’s start with the living room, shall we?

Here is what the front door looks like, from the inside. It’s original to the butcher shop!

Standing at the front door and looking to the right.

A better look at my DIY’d artwork that I am so very proud of. (All of the supplies are from the dollar store!)

Standing at the sofa. The front door is to the left of the TV unit.

As seen, here.

A better look at the green hutch. It was built by Dave’s grandfather and there are quite a few pieces on it that have been passed down from our grandmothers.

And even further to the left.

To the right of the TV unit. I really need to flatten out that LA poster.

This little photo bomber tried to get into nearly every picture. What a rascal!

That’s all for now! I’ve got some fun posts in the works, and more of the home tour coming up.

    Thanks for the tour Val! This place is awesome and quite inspirational. I absolutely love your paintings, with the amusing comment that followed.
