A little before and after

We've been in this house for a year and a half now, and I can't say that anything is totally finished. It is definitely a work in progress, but looking at pictures like these are good because it reminds me of how much we've already done. Here we have our master bedroom on move-in day. That carpet went away right after these pictures were taken, and the wall paper border (of a man fly fishing) went away shortly there after. My dad laid the bamboo floor in this room about a year ago, and since then we have painted and slowly been adding to it.
Here it is today. Some IKEA, some Craig's List, some thrift store...the bed is the only thing we really spent much money on.  A couple more things to do in here. Get rid of that horrid ceiling fan (although we need a ceiling fan to keep it cool so we'll have to replace it with something not so dated), a rug to go under the couch, and some art for the walls. I'm hoping to get this all finished sometime fairly soon so we can check this room off of our list.

It's nice to finally have a floor under your feet! We're gonna have to come visit so I can see it in person.
