I am always asked a lot of questions about my living room. I know I have shown it so many times that most of you feel like you live her, however there are some basic questions or comments that I hear over and over, so I thought I would answer them here.
How to downsize and create your dream with Thrift Store finds.
We sold the "big house" and downsized
8 10 years ago. Our home sold in 1 hour with a bidding war and for $25,000 over the asking price. The only condition was, could we move in 3 weeks. Now I hadn't even looked for a home yet, so I was under a ton of pressure. I needed something ready to move in. This was a builder basic "Spec Home". Not my true love, but the price was right. I didn't do much when we moved in but place what furniture I could into each room and call it good. I soon found out that downsizing was much harder than I had ever thought and I really missed the big house. Finally I decided to love where I am and make it work for us, so there have been many transitions over the last 8 10 years.
Here are a couple of pictures of our living and dining area in the previous home. Now don't laugh at the decor, this was the early 90's and I was heavy into my red and gold phase.
