Hello, my favorite people!
Today, I wanted to give you a sneak peek of our new house. I have had multiple people ask for pictures and I wanted to share with you, some of the things we have done.
This is probably one of my favorite spots in the whole house! It’s so cozy and I just love it. To start with, none of the built ins were here.
I knew I wanted to put the built ins here before we even moved in. I had scoured Pinterest and searched and searched and once I had found the look I wanted, I called the only person I knew who could make it all come to life! His name is Steve Egloff from The Wandering Woodshop. Steve is a true craftsman. He loves what he does and it shows in everything he does.
If you live in the Myrtle Beach area and need any kind of wood work done, he is your man! You can check out his Facebook page here.
Be forewarned! I will be bragging about Steve again in the upcoming weeks as I share all the projects he has done at our New Home. 🙂
We have a mudroom area right off our garage that has a built in bench already and I really wanted the space in the breakfast nook to look like it had always been there and wasn’t an addition on our part. I had Steve mimic the look of that here.
It turned out EXACTLY how I wanted!
I asked him to have it function just like the other one and works perfectly.
He even put felt stoppers in between the closing areas so that it wouldn’t slam shut. Because of this, it shuts very smoothly.
We purchased the table while we were still in the apartment. I picked it up from World Market. I believe they still have them in stock. The chairs are from Ikea and stay in stock.
Then there is Penelope and Bessie. My new pets. Probably as close to actual pets as I will ever get. (Insert tears here) I love these paintings. I received a catalog from Grandin Road before we moved in and I couldn’t think of anything else for this wall space. I even based how high I wanted my Batten Board on the wall because I knew I would be ordering these.
They are 36 in. sq. and are the smaller of the two sizes they offered. Can you believe that? They stole my heart from day one.
Towards the back side of the house, we have a little nook that I had Steve build another bench on. This serves as multiple things in our house. It is our quiet spot, reading nook, time out corner, sometimes blogging nook and I love it. 😉
Even though it was tempting to have this bench open for storage, we decided instead to keep it stationary.
We also decided to keep it simple with the moldings on the front and mimic the detail from the breakfast nook slightly to have it all look cohesive.
Well, there you go, my friends! The first look into our new house and few comfy spots that we love. I hope you liked taking a little peek into our house with me.
If you enjoyed this post, make sure you check back next week, as I plan on sharing a few dining room pics with you.
I was ecstatic when I was able to keep my chandelier from the old house when the new homeowners weren’t interested in keeping it. It returns next week to it’s rightful home!
Have a wonderful weekend, EVERYONE!
