There has been progress around the house. Here and there, bits and pieces.
Some library shelves arranged. By color. By a lunatic. *ahem*
Picture rails! I know, I know. Shut up about the picture rails, Laini.
(Ribba, from IKEA.)
Here's the one in my work-in-progress writing room:
(That carved wooden drawer piece was acquired at Cargo, to balance out the IKEA blah.
I plan to commit the atrocity of, um, painting it. Aqua. The one I wanted was blue already,
the most gorgeous blue, the most excellent antique lacquer finish! But was realllly $$. So.)
(Adorable paper animal sculptures by Djeco.)
Ah. And the living room, finally, ART ON THE WALL!
This is just a random collection of stuff put up in a hurry, but I like it for now.
I love the idea of books as wall art! And it will be so fun to change this up.
Also, a little project whose completion was spurred by Thanksgiving,
and the need for places for our guests to place their posteriors.
I eeeeched to a halt one day when I spotted these guys on the sidewalk.
And this one.
Jim painted them some time ago, but they have remained seatless until now. Yay!
My dad helped out with tools; Jim cut the plywood bottoms.
A trip to Fabric Depot for foam and fabric, and some angst with the corner folds.
And voila. Sitting accomplished :-)
That's all for now. Hopefully more to show soon.
When that pesky book gets itself written ...
