Now that I’m about to move out of my townhouse and I’ve already lived here for over 2 years, I thought I should finally share some pictures of where I’ve been living! (And don’t worry, I’m still staying in the Dallas area, it’s just time to move somewhere new and different! More on that later…)
This townhouse has been great and was EXACTLY what I was looking for when I was moving 2 years ago. I wanted something affordable (cuz ya girl is on a budget), without any neighbors above me (because I previously had a bartender living above me who would storm in at 3am and slam every door and cabinet possible meaning I also woke up every night at 3am), and in a safe neighborhood (just common sense, really). I seriously lucked out when I found a townhouse in my budget and the hilarious thing is that it was only ONE street away from my last apartment! Talk about a fast and easy move!!
Ok, let’s get started upstairs, shall we?!? Upstairs there is just SO MUCH SPACE! So much room for activities! I have the vanity, bathroom, and closet over on the back wall, but the upstairs is just gigantic. I feel like I have big furniture and it doesn’t even come close to taking up all the space!
One thing I didn’t like when I first moved in (this wasn’t the floor plan I was originally supposed to have, which I didn’t find out until about 3 days before moving in…) was that it is a loft-style townhouse, so the entire upstairs is open to the downstairs. It just seemed way too open to me, but once I got used to it, it became my FAVORITE thing about living there! I love that I can easily just toss something down over the rail, or (more fun/more challenging) throw something UP over the rail from the downstairs!
Now onto the downstairs! Again, I just feel like there’s so much space! I had to get a little bit creative around the fireplace – there are two pretty deep cubbies on both sides that I just didn’t know what to do with. (Mainly because again, I didn’t expect to be in this floor plan!) I love that my leaning bookshelf seemed to fit perfectly on the right side, and I found a great TV stand from Wayfair that fit perfectly on the left! There’s a great little Harry Potter coat closet under the staircase that has GREAT storage.
The kitchen is… fine… lol I didn’t pick this place because it was the nicest in town and that DEFINITELY shows in the kitchen, but it’s been pretty good for the most part! Except for a dying oven that doesn’t really heat that well. That’s not great. But everything else works just fine! And back at the back of the kitchen is a 1/2 bath which is wonderful. It’s so nice to not have to go all the way upstairs to use the restroom, especially when I have guests over!
I do also have a dining room with a table, chairs, and a little keyboard! However, ti’s currently a sea of boxes waiting to be packed for my big move, and we really don’t need a picture of that, now do we?!?
And that’s it! It’s nothing fancy or special, but I’ve really loved living here for the past 2 years. Now it’s back to packing and organizing – oh boy! Have a great weekend!!
