The Before

So I wanted to share the “before” of our apartment.  I know not everyone has seen it.  I’ll be back after Thanksgiving with the “after.”  It’s more of a work-in-progress, but it’s much better than when we first started settling in.  So here we go.

Our front entry way.

The living room (and a view of the backyard).

The kitchen.  This is taken standing in the middle of the living room.

The kitchen as you stand in the entry way.  Look at all the counter space and cabinets and drawers!  That is NOT the norm in NYC.

The door to the backyard.  It’s actually a dutch door, which I find so charming.  It’s been wonderful for letting fresh air in.

The backyard.  Look at all of that ivy!  Scott actually talked about being excited to attack it while we were on the honeymoon.  We inherited the chairs and the pots (also several sheets of glass…not the safest thing to discover).  I’m going to plant an herb garden and maybe some flowers in the spring.

Here is the view from the backyard into the house.

The teeny tiny bathroom.  Again, I can’t complain, because at least it’s not a pedestal sink and there is storage in the mirror as well.

Aaand the bedroom.  Here is Scott pacing it off.  Believe it or not we fit a Queen bed and a dresser in here.

There you have it.  I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
