Entry/Angry Birds

At long last here are a few more pictures of the new digs. These are photos of the front entry, the only area of the house that is pretty much done. Every room seems to need a little something to finish it off, and we just haven't had as much time as we would like (imagine that) to work on things. Also, it has been hard for me to decide where to hang things on the walls. I realize I can move things if I don't like them, but I'm pretty averse to patching and repainting. Most of the entry has been done for a while, but we just finished our last project, painting and re-covering the chair. It was formerly very hideous (as chairs that one picks off the curb usually are), but nothing that a few coats of paint and some new material couldn't fix.

The curtains may seem like a strange touch, but the flip side of having a door that lets in a lot of sunlight is that those very same windows allow everyone to see into your house after dark. It didn't take us long to decide that we didn't want the entire neighborhood viewing our pajamas. They also help us conserve heat, which has been an added bonus during this very very cold winter.

And here's a before/after of the chair:

A bonus for those of you who made it through all those boring pictures- the boys showing off some sweet Angry Birds tattoos and playing "triplets" this afternoon.
