House Tour, Part One … Boogie on Down ‘stairs’

Hooray…I finally got my act together enough to present you with a HOUSE TOUR of our humble abode.

Well, a tour of the first floor anyways.  Sorry, but you will need to wait a tad longer to see our home in its entirety.  But hey, I’m doing you a favour — patience is a virtue, after all ;).  I will post the floor plan and accompanying pictures of our upstairs (second floor) this upcoming Friday.  I will also do a post about our house’s exterior and yard very soon.

Okay…

without further delay…

OUR DOWNSTAIRS

Floor Plan

Here’s the sitch — this is my first attempt at making a floor plan using floorplanner.com…needless to say, this is in no way exact.  In the near future, I would love to update this floor plan to include our driveway and yard.

To help orient you, the front door is actually located at the side of our house, and the living room windows look out onto our front yard and street.  Our house faces south = lots of sunshine in the front of the house.  The colours used in the creation of this floor plan are simply to give you an idea of the current paint colours that came with the house (can you say Merry Christmas?).

Tag — You’re It!!!

Happy Monday, everyone!  Okay, who am I kidding?…Monday is probably my least favourite day of the week.

So…

Mediocre Monday, everyone! 

This post will be brief, as I have just a few pieces of news to report.

1.  New Tagline

I have changed my tagline from “reviving style” to “grand improvements…humble budget”.  This new and improved tagline better reflects what I wish to convey through my blog: that you can drastically change the look of (or revive) your home, without having it cost a fortune.  Which is a great thing, ’cause my pockets aren’t too deep (hahaha & sigh).

2.  Updated About Page

I have also updated my About page to better reflect the purpose of A GRAND REVIVAL.  I hope that you will take a quick moment to check it out (here), and that my blog will help others as much as it is helping me.

3.  House Tour Coming (I Promise!)

I know, I know…it is super fun to check out other bloggers’ homes.  I promise I am diligently working on creating a House Tour for you.  Hopefully, it be done within the week!!!???  Stay tuned…

I wanna take a “peak”!

Oh, and I wanted to thank thriftykristy at Bliss again for nominating my blog for the “One Lovely Blog Award”.  What a great opportunity to connect with fellow bloggers…awesome!  

Revive ya later!                                                                                                           Angela (Revival Girl)
