you guys, i am THIS close to having a real living room.
last night, i finally chucked all the garbage and empty boxes we had piling up in there. we were mostly using this space as a catch-all, and it was starting to drive me completely bananas. there is still one kitchen box to unpack and a few things on the window’s ledge to sort through, but for the most part, we’re DONE.
you may remember the purchases i made last week, on a whim. i got the rug in the mail last night and it’s AWESOME. it has some shiny pieces of gold and silver fabric in it that totally give it the pop i wasn’t expecting, but am totally happy with! the curtains should come today, and the rest of the stuff i got should be here by the end of the week, or so.
we still have a few things to put up on the walls to complete the room, but for the most part i am totally happy with it! i’ll be getting my couch NEXT WEEK! the one i had my eye on is apparently no longer available, so in its place, i’ll be getting this gorgeous little thang:
… so long as it fits through my front door!
… oh what’s that? you want MORE GOOD NEWS?
our KITCHEN WINDOW should also be installed sometime next week. i can’t even articulate how happy this makes me! we’ll finally have natural light in the kitchen, the ability to open the window for a cool spring breeze, and access to the fire escape landing so we can grow our own herbs!
that my friends, is how you spell success.
i tried to get some real camera pictures onto dan’s computer (because mine is still dead, hanging out at my friend’s house until i can afford a new harddrive), but dan’s laptop is legitimately from the stone-age so i couldn’t figure it out! i’ll ask him this week, but if not… you’ll have to be patient in waiting for the before/after shots.
new couch? next week
kitchen window? next week
online purchases? this week
it’s about time, dammit!
