This is a long post....
O.k......let's start off with the loo.......LOL LOL......
this is actually the small guest bathroom. Since we have decided to move any guests we may have to a local hotel....I wanted to use the bathtub as a wonderful place for my inside plants. There is a huge skylight in the ceiling allowing tremendous light...and by grouping them all together they get more of a greenhouse effect. Oh....by the way.....this bathroom is off a short front hall just a little to the right of our entry door so you do notice it first thing!
This move was a big downsize in square footage for us 1,400 square feet to be exact so I have had to use my existing things in new unexpected ways as we certainly could not go out and buy new.
The dining room has pretty much the same things as in our last house ..... but we did have to purchase a little inexpensive dining table.
High ceilings and huge windows at the ceiling give the house an expansive feel. The weird object above the buddha is part of the chandelier that was here previously. I plan on keeping the thing but the light panels were so dingy we will have to soak and clean them before we are able to use the it.
We did just a cosmetic uplift in this little home. We replaced all the floors and kitchen appliances. Our new floors are once again a dark wood, as we both love how cozy that feels and we put down ceramic tile in the kitchen this time as the wood floors in our old kitchen really took a beating with us and the dogs.
The floors were previously 6 inch white square tile which is still on the kitchen counter tops. Hopefully, we will be able to update the cabinets and tops in the future...but for now they are fine.
We have another huge skylight in the kitchen.....
and as you know we get a tremendous amount of sun here in AZ. We had talked about putting a shade screen over the thing...but the more I thought about it....I really did not want to make the kitchen any darker. I just wanted to find a way to block some of the hot sun that seems to come in there in the morning. So I decided to do this......
This is the umbrella that used to hang in my art room at the old house.
The light on the glass is wonderful throughout the day and it actually is placed in front of one of the A/C vents so it acts as a wind chime every time the A/C kicks on......which here......is often.
Well......those a just a few shots of our sweet little spot. I have a few more rooms to share....but that will have to wait for another time......as it is a Sunday night in AZ......which means Chinese food and movies on the sofa with the pups.
Have a wonderful week.
