House Tour

Well, as of last week, our house is officially on the market.  We're hoping it sells fairly quickly, so please keep your fingers crossed for us!  And if you know of anyone looking to move to Fairfax Station, VA, send them my way!

The MRIS photos came out pretty good, so I thought I'd share some and give you a tour. I've never shown you the full house.  Hopefully soon we'll be settled in a new place and I'll be able to show you befores and afters of it!

Here's the entry looking into the dining room to the right:

And here it is looking into the living room on the left.
The living room ...
The dining room ...  Everything in this room was found on Craigslist and painted, except for the "famous butt chairs." I didn't paint them, but they're from Craigslist.
Here's the family room, with the fireplace I painted.
And the kitchen. (I had to take all my doo dads off of the counter to "declutter.")

I've never shown the bedrooms before because there was always more I wanted to do to them, and I never felt like they were particularly anything special to look at.  But here they are. The master bedroom and my office right off of it:
One of the guest rooms (my favorite):
Another guest room/den:
The last bedroom is my son's room, who is now out of the Marines and living back at home. It looks cluttered, so I won't show that. We tried, but he has a lot of stuff! :-)
And here's the basement.  Now it may not look like much, but picture it filled with furniture in the midst of being painted, and unpainted furniture stacked around it.  This room took the most work, so even though it isn't especially beautifully decorated, I'm just proud of myself for getting it cleared out!
So that's it.  We're located on a 1.5 acre wooded lot with lots of birds, squirrels, deer and foxes running around.  I'll really miss this place, but I keep telling myself that change is good!


  1. best of luck to you! your home is beautiful- i am sure it will sell quickly!

  2. Your home looks absolutely beautiful. Someone is going to be thrilled to find such a gem!

  3. Everything looks so good, I know you'll sell it in no time! I am wondering what you did will all of your furniture stash though :)
