There is a hallway that separates the dining room and kitchen. I believe it was labeled as the Mud Room. On one side of the all there are rows of hooks (picture back packs and winter coats and a very twitchy Husband). On the other side we made a Gallery Wall! No measuring, no matchy match frames. Just hung up some hooks and bam! Wall is done!
For a house that is bigger than the old one, there is less room for me to stick my framed pictures. Part of it is that I am (not) patiently waiting for us to find more furniture to stick them on. I have also taken some older baby pics out of frames. Sigh. I love my pictures all over a home but I feel like it is becoming to cluttered. Need the less is more approach.
I found an entry way rug for the front door at Overstock!
It was almost the one I had envisioned and the price was great (sale.) I always wanted a better rug for the old house but there were so many layers on that floor, a door couldn't open over it and a rug. I am happy with the quality and it feels it cushy under barefeet,
I forgot to update y'all about the bathtub situation. After a big hike on Sunday, I thought a bath would be a great way to relax. First of all, those tubs are kind of hard to clean. I was crawling in and out of it while the water dripped down at me!! Then I began filling it and added bubbles. Because I was covered in dirt, the water became dirty and icky and it was hard to relax after that!! I emptied the tub and took a quick shower...which I should have done first!! I will try again but it did work, although it still makes no sense to me!
