Drum roll please...
I believe we are actually buying a house for real! We went to see another move in ready house with an in-law apartment on Sunday. We put in an offer, and they accepted it! The home inspection was yesterday, and things are just rolling along. I know there is a long way to go and there is a chance it still might fall through, but I can't help myself from planning furniture purchases and arrangement, and decorating ideas galore!
Have you ever seen the furniture arrangement tool on Better Homes and Gardens website? It's pretty amazing. http://arrangearoom.bhg.com/arrangearoom/ I was drawn to it because the house we are buying has an awkwardly shaped living area. It's beautiful, but tricky to arrange because of glass walls and a big brick fireplace. So here is what I came up with so far:
Even if for some reason this house deal falls through, this arrange a room tool and I will be spending some time getting to know each other!
