I thought I’d show you a photo of our Austin rental today.
We moved into our rental just a few days before Christmas. The rental (until we find the right home to buy) is smaller than our last home, as it’s just temporary. It’s brand new and we are the first to live in it! Our landlords are awesome!
We’ve unpacked the majority of our stuff (well the stuff that will get unpacked), but have yet to hang curtains. Here is how it’s looking. Please pardon the naked windows.
Each time you move to a different home, you will notice that your furniture, art and curtains just don’t quite fit the same way, huh? I mean, the walls, room shape, dimensions and entire space is different. We refuse to buy anything new for the (temporary) rental, so we are using what we have and making it work!!
We did the family room almost identical to our family room in Phoenix. See the Phx family room below.
There is a different coffee table. We are using the bench from the master, as we sold the old ottoman. And, we changed some of the pillows. Can you spot which one?
We are also using a white end table instead of the black one. Overall, though, things fit decently in this room.
And, above, you notice the art from the craft room that we are using. Below, you get a bit of a glimpse into the kitchen.
The boxes? Well, there is an entire bedroom and a garage filled with unopened boxes!
We’re getting there. Gotta get those curtains hung! It will have a big impact.
I’ll share another room or two as time goes on. It’s not anything spectacular, but it’s a good temporary place to live in a killer location.
