Pictures of my house- Main floor

So, I kept putting off taking pictures because there's still so many things I want to do to decorate. But it's a step by step process and it will take another several months to be finished. So here's some pictures of my half-decorated house. :)

This is our main room. Everntually I want the TV mounted on the wall, but with a non-do-it-yourself hubbie, I will most likely be doing it, and it's not on the top of my list. :)

These bookcases were a steal on craiglist. I love them. Not done decorating these either. I'd like some accent lights, different trinkets, etc. in them. I'm also thinking about putting a huge clock above the TV. I hate not having a clock in this room. What do you think?

My picture collage above one couch. 2 11X14s, 3 8X10s, and 2 5X7's. Doesn't get easier than that.

This is my wall of windows. LOVE the windows, hate the blinds. I have big hopes for this wall. I want to take all the blinds off (use them on my basement windows) and make some drapes. Probably some yummy blue drapes to bring in some color.

View of the kitchen from the living room.

View of front door from living room. Sorry about the mop. Hubs was cleaning. :) On this blank wall on the left, we had a mirror. But we're using it in the dining room eventually, so I'm working on a picture project for that wall. Already have it finished, I just have to print it at costco. And get frames.

Remember Brandon's office? Here's what it looked like before doors...

And here it is with doors! Most of the time, the doors are open, but for conference calls they are shut. The office is considered fully decorated. :)

These hang in the hallway to the half-bath. My sis-in-law Margaret got these for me when she went to Egypt. They may be my favorite decoration I own. Do you recognize them? :)

Half bath. Can't wait to get stuff on the walls in here. I have a couple things pinned on pinterest I want to do. Again, I'm working on it... :)

Kitchen. I love my kitchen. Love love love. It's so big, and it has tons of storage. I don't love the colors though. I'm not a big fan of oak, and the countertops- blah. BUT, in the next couple years I hope to paint the cabinets white and get black granite countertops. Then I will love it even more.

I'm hoping to get rid of these blinds to and make some drapes. The blinds are old and breaking and just not nice. :)

Dining room. Probably the least decorated room. We're working on it. We have mirrors that will be going up, and I want to make a table runner for the table, and we want to either buy a bench or a couple more chairs for additional seating.

Guest room. We'd like to put more on the walls and I'd love a new duvet cover for in here. You're more than welcome to visit!

Bathroom for the guest room. I want to frame that mirror with tile to dress it up a bit, and add a little wall shelf above the toilet. It also has a walk-in-closet, I just didn't see the need to take a picture.

Well, that's the main floor! Seeing these pictures makes me see all the stuff I still want to do with it. But, it's a nice start!
