i'm not a "house tour" kinda gal in part because a) my house isn't amazing (i love my house, but it isn't house tour amazing, i mean.) and b) i don't know... privacy maybe? something weird about putting my house on my blog and showing you "here is the window placement should you want to break in." i know i'm a little overboard with that. but, it is what it is. i gots to sleep at night. and i get sweaty palms if i feel like too much of my life is out there in the internet abyss so having a blog in and of itself is, at times, already a bit 'out there' for me.
and, on that same note, if you've ever left a comment on instagram along the lines of, "oh! you're at such and such!" and it got deleted, it was me who deleted it because i like my anonymity. there, i said it. (but, along the same lines, if you happen to see me out and about i would seriously love for you to introduce yourself. put a face with that name. buuuut that is not to suggest that i'm some big blogger who's getting recognized all the time, no.) ok, this is heading a direction i did not intend. moving on!
lindsey's room. i'm branching out of my fear of showing you where our windows are because her room is really lovely and it's reeeeally high off the ground so chances are we'd see or hear you before you got all four limbs inside the house.
i am a notoriously sloooow decorator (and a cheap one too) so, we didn't get here overnight. but rome was not built in a day, my friends! i wish we had a before picture because it was just blahhhhh. wallpaper border, greenish blah walls. in time, it came to be what it was and she loves it. so do we. and props to my main man steve for doing any painting and heavy lifting. and for installing branches from our own backyard as the curtain rods. now THAT is thrifty.
(not shown: closet to the left just past the bookshelf that steve built shelves in and all, and another bureau/vanity to the right along the wall you can't see.)
