Dining room all painted. Grandpa Earl gave us his corner china cabinet that he didn't want anymore for a wedding gift. I am so thankful to have somewhere to put all of our (thanks Erica!) drink glasses. I seem to have about 5 million champagne saucers, they are just too pretty to give away.
Bedroom again. I tried my best to crop out the clutter. We really need a bed skirt and a different comforter. The curtains are sitting on the bench waiting to be hung - long creamy flocked velvet.
The guest bedroom has seen a couple different incarnations. We got a bed in there so mom could have a place to sleep last week. It's been evolving, but now the bookshelf is up and the desk is put together, I think I can finally start unloading all the paper, crafts and cards that are in boxes on the bed and in the closet.
We still don't have cable or internet, but I found my digital cable box, so at least we have public TV and the news (and Gossip Girl). I was talked into putting Anthony's couch up stairs and I do think it looks good with the tables my dad made and my awesome table lamp from Grandma Hutchinson. We picked up a pretty blue rug from Ikea and I think we desperately need some pillows. If only to put behind my back when I sit down. I'd also like to put up Anthony's large, white and bright art that he had from Ikea to lighten the room a bit.
We put a corner bookshelf that my Dad made in the awkward end of the living room and set up two of my off-white Ikea chairs to make a reading area.
As you can see we really need to put some pictures on the wall, but I'm a little apprehensive about putting holes in our fresh paint. I'll have to bite the bullet soon.
