We bought a house!

I am so excited to announce that Kyle and I are in the process of purchasing our first home. It is a mid-century modern (the only style we can both agree on) built in 1959, and we are OBSESSED. So I am going to dedicate this post to some pieces that we have already bought for the home and pieces we want to buy. Please shop along!

Let’s start with the kitchen:

This is our kitchen table. My dad and my uncle built it together and I am so in love with it. It means so much to me to have something built by two men that have been constant influences in my life.

I love thesethese, and this bench (this isn’t nearly long enough, but I love that look).

We got this “credenza” off craigslist, and I’m thinking I’m going to paint it a deep navy. I love that it’s kind of funky and industrial looking. We will probably work this into the kitchen because we don’t really have an actual dining room in the house. We just have a breakfast nook. I totally love that though because personally, I think formal dining rooms are wasted space.

We also have a small bar and think these chairs would look really cool.

Next on to the living room:

Another FAAAABBBULOUS craigslist find. It’s a record player, and it sounds awesome. I can’t wait to blast records and dance around the living room.

I really like the look of this love seat and couch from Underpriced Furniture.

I want to pair them with a chair like this in orange. (This is 100% fantasy and there is NO WAY I would ever spend anything even close to that for a chair, but maybe I will find one similar that’s cheaper? Maybe?)

I also think this rug would fit really well, along with this bookcase.

And finally, the master bedroom:

We both agreed that this bed is ideal with these nightstands.

I want this rug so bad. I think the loose lines have so much character.

The before and after of this dresser is LIFE CHANGING! Maybe I can put my big girl pants on and DIY my own.


Anyways, that’s as far as I’ve gotten on the decorating front. Do y’all have any ideas or suggestions? Links to some super sale furniture? Drop them in the comments, I will be forever indebted.

  1. I LOVE your kitchen table! It is beautiful, and so special that it’s handmade. I am terrible at design, but love seeing what other people do. We just bought our first house last summer – I can’t say I loved the whole process, but it is definitely exciting!

    1. Thank you! It was so awesome being able to share that with my family.
      The searching for the house was a nightmare! I’m so glad it’s over.
      I like to think that I can design, but I really have no idea what I’m doing.
      Fake it till you make it, right? 🙂
