As to the "signs of life" referenced in the title of this post, we have finally, as of last night and tonight, put our first things on the wall! It started with our hooks for our keys, which I put up last night, just to have done it. And tonight, we put up two new picture shelves in the front hall, and even pulled out, dusted off, and put up some of our framed art! Not sure if this bunch of photos/art will stick, but we just wanted to see something up -- a little bit more of us in this place, finally.
And so, without further ado... I present the hallway/accent wall conclusion:
|(front entrance - duh)|
|(hallway, up to the master suite door)|
|(dining side of the new wall -- now an accent wall!)|
|(window pass-through between the dining room and kitchen - how do the colors look together?)|
|(yes, we hang our keys on two dog-butts, thanks to my T! btw, they're from IKEA)|
|(too much? too busy? okay? whatever, for now we're just happy to have something up!)|
