SO I've finally gotten around to starting my House tour before/after posts.
First up in our tour is the entrance hall. As with all the rooms (as you'll see!) it's far from how I want/imagine it. Some rooms may not appear to have changed all that much, some more drastically. However, not only do we have financial constraints but we are also renting so there are limits to what we can do with this place... for now ;-)
Here is the hallway before:
Here it is now:
It's looking very bare I'm afraid (my awful photography doesn't help!). I'm loving my new blanket box though! Plans for the future (near and distant) - definitely more art and/or photos on the walls, big matching plants in the corners instead of those tables - hopefully a wooden floor (we're currently in the process of getting permission to take the carpets up in a couple of rooms so we can attempt laying wooden flooring underneath) and definitely a nice big rug!
Status - work in progress!
