Settling Into A Temporary Home
We are slowly getting settled into our temporary home in Fairhope, AL!
All the necessities were unpacked pretty quickly, but we’ve taken our time with the rest of the boxes. This home is about half the size of the one we sold, so there is quite a bit that we are leaving packed and in storage. There just isn’t any room for it!
The rooms are slowly getting decorated, and things are getting shifted and re-arranged as we see what works and what doesn’t.
I sold a lot of furniture before we moved and it’s been fun searching for “new to me” antique pieces to fill in the gaps. I’m not in a hurry and want to take my time in finding exactly the perfect piece for the right price.
The dining room still doesn’t have a dining table and chairs, there’s no bed in one of the guest rooms, and we’re still missing bedside chests in the master bedroom. But it will all come together at some point!
Leasing this home for a year will give us time to explore and take our time to find exactly where we want to buy.
In the middle of unpacking and trying to rearrange furniture, I decided to repaint our bed in the master bedroom.
This is the third change it’s seen and I am really loving the new color. I’ll share more on that process later on, as well as some before pictures.
The master bedroom is still pretty empty. Not only am I looking for two bedside chests, but also an armoire to hide the tv in. We love having a tv in the bedroom, but I like it to be hidden when not in use.
New bedding was delivered today so it’s coming together in baby steps!
I hope you have enjoyed this little sneak peek into our changes in the master bedroom. I’ll be sharing more later on as we find new pieces and tweak it as we go. I’m taking my time and letting it all come together organically!
