I've never explained to you how hastily we bought this house.
Some people have an instantaneous love for their house.
They drive down a road and it calls to them.
I understand because I felt that way about our last house.
This house purchase went like this.
We decided it was time to move to Texas.
We drove down here on Friday, April 20, 2012.
I looked at maybe 7 houses and hated them all.
(I wanted old he wanted new.)
This house had the pond behind it so it kind of grabbed my interest.
(Dining room is just to the right of the front door.)
On the Saturday that I was looking at houses my husband was out running a race.
It was me and my sweet realtor.
That night I told my husband how much I disliked all of them except maybe for one that was kind of ok because there was a pond behind it and it had a pretty kitchen.
Now during this conversation I was one big cry baby boo-hooing about leaving Oklahoma.
So on Sunday our realtor brought us back to this ONE house that my husband looked at.
And we bought it.
Here's why I'm telling you all of this...
The pictures you are seeing are all the entryway.
Um, what am I supposed to do with this?
It's roundish and there are three niches. Yes three!!
See that one way up there?
The pictures that are in the niches right now are only there to fill an empty spot. They aren't staying.
That light fixture that hangs from the second story is teeny tiny.
Whatever goes in the up high niche will require a ladder that is REALLY tall.
And whatever goes there might never change.
So I ask you wise decorating friends...
What on earth do I do with this space?
What would you do?
