Luckily, I remembered to take a few photos after cleaning, and so I thought I might share! Mind you, the upstairs is still messy, so this is only the downstairs. For those of you who would like to visit, I hope this gives you a little motivation to come stay :-)
If you look by the stairs, we've installed a pressure-fit stair gate for Mr. P. The floral prints are the same as the ones I had up in our dining room in Little Rock. They work perfectly here trailing up the stairs, and with the lavender and white color scheme. The hallway is very small, and just fits our Korean cabinet, as well as our wooden shelf with hooks.
The very far right is the kitchen, and if you look closely you can see the cluttered dining room table :)

If you look in the corners of the room, you can see old typewriter stands holding up our lamps. Those we found perusing many antique stores. The one on the right we found in Newton, Georgia, and the one on the left we found in Tallahassee, Fl.
The farm style table was made by my late father-in-law, Patrick. On the table's perimeter are 100-year-old captain chairs which were purchased by my father-in-law as well (there's one in the living room). The least favorite part of this room would have to be the tile counter, which is so difficult to clean... blerg! My favorite part of the room would have to be the dishwasher. You don't realize the value of a dishwasher (or garbage disposal) until you don't have one!
Well that's all for now. I hope to have the upstairs spruced up soon so I can get some photos!
Have a Happy Valentines!
