Okay, here are pics of the entire main floor of our house. Not the upstairs, nor the bedrooms, basement, or garage.
Please refrain from judging me. We need to remodel (no, there is not a bathroom on the main floor
), our floors still have the glue on them from where the carpet was glued down, and we have not so much lifted a paintbrush since we moved in.
My house is in very average condition in these pics, which I took today.
1. Living room
. That's it- couch, recliner, and TV stand. On the floor next to the couch is the dog's toy box. And, of course, baby toys strewn about.
2. Dining room
. This room is the biggest room in our house, and this is the one that I think of the most as being empty, even though it really has a ton of stuff in it. Note the smudges all over the walls from baby (and adult
The big dark cabinet is, we think, the top of an antique hutch. It came with the house. When we refinish it, we are going to add feet and wheels. On top of it is DDs changing pad, baskets with her diaper stuff, and two pictures whose frames I painted, but I got paint on the glass, so I need to finish them with a Q-Tip and nail polish remover, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. The pail on the right is the diaper pail. Inside the cabinet (which is 2' deep, so it holds a ton) are about half of our books (the rest are in the bedrooms), our boardgames, and our CDs.Here
is our computer desk (which is also a huge, heavy antique so it holds a ton- family notebook, phonebook, paper, tape, scissors, stapler, pens pencils, sharpeners, etc.), the file cabinet that has the printer on it, DD's downstairs toybox, and the carved stone table (also came with the house) that holds our stereo and DD's baby monitor. To the left, draped over the stair bannister, is a bunch of clean laundry that needs to be taken upstairs and hung up.This
is the corner for DD's play table. On the top of the radiator is DH's grandpa's cigar box. It has hankies in it. (Prettier than a kleenex box, IMHO.) Next to that is our incense burner/case.
(Right now, my dad is building DD playstands, so once we have those I want to flip the spots of the play area and the computer desk. But we have to get an electrician in to put an outlet on that wall, and figure out a place in the living room to put the stone table. Hmm...)
Okay, final dining room

is our kitchen. And here
it is from another angle. Note the filthy floors. DD also likes to get "toys" out of the recycling, so that accounts for some (only some
) of the trash. Here
is a shot of part of the pantry.
4. Back porch
. This is pretty standard. The tubs are the recycling, and that wall is covered with hooks for coats and bags.
5. Front porch
. This actually looks worse than it is, because the pile in the corner is the sewing/fishing stuff I've been reorganizing, and the desk on the left is outta here! Vinnie's is picking it up tomorrow.
