Reminiscing...

My husband and I have moved a lot in our short 10 1/2 years together. In fact, we have moved 7 times. We lived in Reno, NV about 7 years ago and although this is one of the smallest houses we lived in, it's one of my favorite.

The previous owners had faux painted the walls orange and cream. Once the plumber called it orange sherbet. Thank you Mr. plumber man. I thought I would eventually paint over it but got so many compliments (besides the plumber) I decided to leave it.



This was the view from the front entryway. You walked right into the formal living room. In my case, it was the casual/computer room.




I loved all the natural light in this house. I had so many house plants. The real kind.




The plants on top of the cabinets are real.



I loved this fire place. You just turned it on by a switch and watched your gas bill sky rocket.


These window toppers were done by the previous owners. They were super simple! Yes, I dissected them. She just used a small board and nailed them into the wall.



This was the hallway. I got this idea from the previous owners. Otherwise I wouldn't have thought to place a table here.



Guest bathroom.



Master bedroom. I painted this room 3 times and still didn't like the color.



Master bathroom.



Daughters room. Oh I loved her room when she was little. It was so frilly with dolls and ruffles. I actually made her window topper and bedding.



Kevin's room. My neighbor painted the mural.



I painted the gorilla. My neighbor said it looked more like a dog.



Well, thank you for walking down memory lane with me. I plan on showing another former house soon. I just have to gather the pictures.

I am glad to see someone else painting a room 3 times and still not liking it. :)
