Show and Tell Tuesday: Home Tour

I know I've already shared some photos of our new home, but that was before we personalized it and before it really felt like home.  So what better time to share some updates than today in conjunction with one of my favorite link-ups - Show and Tell Tuesdays.  We're four and a half months in and really loving this new crib of ours!

 Our house has a very open floor plan, which I love.  I love being able to see the boys from nearly every corner of the main floor.  Our dining room is currently where we store all of the boys' toys.  Most can be packed away into two ottomans (a must for me!), but there are always a few bigger items sitting in the middle of the room.

I still love my gallery wall!  I blogged about the making of it here.

I also love the kids' art gallery wall!  It adds so much character and personalization to our home.  I blogged about the making of it here.

I always wanted to permanently hang my chalkboard in our old house, but there was literally no place for it.  This spot in our new kitchen was practically made for a chalkboard!

We would love some new deck furniture.  Like an outdoor couch, end table, and a couple of chairs.  Then, we want a stamped concrete patio near the base of our deck stairs and we'd move the grill, table, and chairs to the patio.  Someday...

The boys' rooms haven't changed since March.  In fact, they are about fifty times messier now than they were then, so here are the photos from March...

Oh, and I definitely shouldn't exclude this.  The pantry.  One of the most amazing things about this house!  But you'd never know it from the outside......

That pretty much covers it!  I hope you enjoyed the tour.  I am definitely enjoying the additions that turned our house into a home.
