I'm sitting admiring my new coffee table and buffet (pics below). so happy with how they turned out.
I have to work super late tomorrow night to do a bunch of HST program testing so we're ready for Friday. As sucky as it is, I'd rather stay tomorrow night than have to go into work on Thursday.
contemplating a trip to Deacon this weekend if the weather is going to be good. We'll see how the next couple of days go. (Pen, I'll keep you posted)
I just got the lamp for $25 online from these guys who specialize in mid-century mod stuff. The shade I got at Walmart - not entirely perfect but for $15 it will do for now.
I also kind of wish the buffet was a little longer and this mirror (which is actually supposed to go with the vanity for the powder room which we bought last year and have yet to install) was a little larger but it all works enough for now.
On to the family room - though that will require some new (new used) furniture so that will have to wait a little longer. For now I`ll probably just do up some new pillows etc.
And of course, all of this will look so much better once we have beautiful hardwood floors. Probably a darker mid-tone walnut colour. Don`t want to be too pale (though I love the bleached oak that is currently popular) or too dark which I also think will start to look dated very soon.
All in good time. Must learn to be content with what I have which, really I am. I`m just happy I seem to be able to create some pretty decent stuff out of not much and with very little cash.
