The fugly 80’s light fixture in the corner has been secretly removed and capped. YAY! That simple act made us feel so much better. Even then, we still had dated, lacy sheers blocking the beautiful bay window and absolutely nothing on the wall. So we headed to Ikea. Yay again!
Hi there and happy Monday! I don’t know about you, but lately our weekends have been filled with exploring the new surroundings and a desperate desire to bring our rental into the 21st century. Happily, this weekend we did a little of the earlier and a lot of the latter. Come see…
Jeff fell in love with this gigantic black & white image so I said, “Yes Dear, I agree. No Dear, it’s not too big.” It’s huge. And even though it’s wider than our newly topped table, I kind of love it. Notice the drapes? No more dated sheers and our bay window has been unveiled. (Ikea picture $49, drapes $25: satisfaction = priceless)
Now for the score of the month… We had searched high and low, new and old, for kitchen chairs with no luck until we stopped in at a used furniture shop on Saturday and found these – vintage Hitchcock chairs covered in dust and at $15 a pop, they were a steal – literally. I am in love with them.
And then (late) yesterday afternoon, we sat back to admire our weekend work. And snoozed.
How was your weekend? Work on anything new?
