I’ve promised to post some pictures of our new-to-us home here in quiet Moberly, Missouri. I’m doing it in sections, so welcome and enjoy. And to those of you who have thought I always had a neat house, these will certainly show you I am a real person! Getting settled is not conducive to everything being in it’s place. Neither is the lack of a dishwasher. But I’m not having anxiety attacks over it. The handwashing of dishes has really helped the boys to pitch in and help.
The coat closet is straight ahead (along with our random shoes that we leave off inside) and there is a built in shelf that divides the entry from the living room. On the other side of it is a bookcase. This will be revised/updated in the future.
We are back to using our Target entertainment table since the one in Georgia was a built-in. The student desk needs a new home, but is a coat rack sometimes serves as a coat rack for the time being. Oh, and our lampshades cracked and crumbled with the cold temps and there isn’t much overhead lighting.
Drapes were removed. They matched the valance, but had flowers. I’m planning to recover the valances with something new and keep the sheers for now. Isn’t the carpet color lovely? (a faded greenish-blue)
There are bookshelves on that left wall and shelving at the end. The previous owner had glass doors on the shelving for some display, but I have no collection to show off other than cookbooks, so I took off the doors. I put a tiered table (formerly my nightstand and then a toy table) under the bookshelves to hold napkins and trivets. You can peek into the kitchen from here also.
You can also head straight from the front entry to get to the stairs. The doorway that is barely seen on the right is to the kitchen. It is straight across from the doorway that goes into the dining room. On the left is the pantry.
Only 3 shelves were in it. Scott is going to give it a makeover when he finishes the project which is under time constraint (because it must be inspected). So for now I have it organized, but my extra stuff is basically stacked neatly on the floor thus looking very cluttered. In the end it will be beautiful–as far as pantries go.
