A new me.

It has been almost a month since school got out and although I am teaching summer school I find I still really need something to do in my spare time. I have always been busy. I have worked and gone to school since I was 16 and really love to keep myself occupied. Don't get me wrong I love having summers off but I usually keep myself busy with trips. Since I am going to get my master's degree over these next two years I will need to really cut back and prioritize my life (AKA no more expensive trips). Anyways to my point, this week I took 2 days to rework my kitchen. Yes 2 days only! It looks incredible! I love it as does my roomie. I am so close to being finished with my condo only a few more things to be done but they can wait and aren't noticeable. So I am posting some pictures on my condo for those of you who have yet to see it. I am not including my roommates room (it's her private life) and of course the bathroom, it's not perfect yet. Tell me what you think. :)

My wicker chair! I love it and it took forever to get right.

My bedroom.

Living room. First are my pictures I bought in Paris, brought home and framed myself.

The clock I painted and designed myself.

Two pictures of my living room as well.

My dining room. I love my table.

The kitchen! The first is a picture of my kitchen before.

The next two are pictures after all work was complete.

New coat of paint on cupboards, new hinges, knobs, and wall color.

Last are my new spice magnets. I love them so much, so much fun and adds a pop of color-WorldMarket 1.99-great investment.

Wow!!! It looks amazing. I think you should do interior decorating as a career. Maybe do it on the side of teaching. You're really good.

Thanks you are so sweet. My room mate keeps saying that too. She's crazy.... Haha.
