I can't find any "before" pictures....guess I never really took any? Or they are just hiding from me right now. The closest I can find is this one from last Christmas - which only tells you that my bed was under the window and the walls were a creamy beige color.
Then in January, I got a piano and it was near the outside door to my side yard (by the bathroom)
And now (photo taken standing in the doorway from the hall) you can see that my piano is where the bed was under the window and the bed is where the piano was by the door!
a close up of the photos over my bed.....(R-L) a yellow flower from my New York trip a couple of years ago, sweet Emily in her carseat, a cool mosiac tile J taken from the entry to EJ's Luncheonette where we ate Sunday brunch in New York, Heather Emily & I in the hospital, and one more close up of Emily. Can you tell I love that precious girl? (oh, and how I got the frames to hang straight? screw-in eyes.....just drilled a little pilot hole in each corner and screwed them in.....)
and opposite the bed (photo taken from the bathroom door), my dresser from babyhood (and yes, those yellow knobs are original!) that has been painted over and over and over again, my great IKEA paintings (a find courtesy of my friend Sarah) and a cool vase I found at Bed, Bath & Beyond. In the green frame is a great 4 generation photo - my granddaddy, Heather, Emily & Mom. Emily is wrapped in the yellow crochet blanket that grandmommy made.
