We still have a long way to go both with decluttering and making the home "ours". But I thought I would post pics, it is way less cluttered than before!!!

Mail area

Desk

Livingroom

Dining room

Kitchen table

DD is 6 months, her toys are in the office in a basket and in her room.

i know its going to be harder to organize that as she gets older

i didnt post pics of the bedrooms because they weren't too bad clutterwise!

lol!! the couches, tv stand and wine rack we did buy new. (when I was working and we still had money to spend on things like furniture, lol)

but the dining room set, and kitchen table and chairs are all hand me downs!

the two end tables in the living room I found in DH's old basement. He says they were there when he moved in. I painted them light green. A lot of stuff in our house is from garage sales and I repainted it!!!

Wow! That's a lovely, decluttered home. Especially love the window shelf with lucky bamboo in the dining room photo...

It looks great! I love the green in your kitchen and adore the view from your window!!! All the houses have porches!
It's my dream to once own a home with a porch. Over here in Europe, it's hard to fine one. There's one near here, but that house has never been for sale and the current price of houses in that street is about 2 million euro.
You've done a wonderful job decluttering!

I got the mail holder at pier 1 a couple of years ago. It is really useful (now that we are finally using it for the mail)

the drawers are perfect for envelopes and stamps.
