- THE RUG IS IN – check
- EXISTING SECTIONAL IS OUT – check – I WAS WORRIED THAT IT WOULD BE A MONSTROUS THING TO DEAL WITH BUT with THE FLIP OF A LEVER – THEY ESSENTIALLY BECAME INDIVIDUAL CHAIRS! AND THE MOVING GUYS CARRIED THEM OUT ONE BY ONE! THE ROOM INSTANTLY BECAME HUGE!!!
- ART IS ORDERED – CHECK
I AM DOING A LARGE “STATEMENT” PIECE AND THESE WERE INSPIRATION!
- I FOUND A COFFEE TABLE!!!! CHECK DOUBLE CHECK!
I AM a tad superstitious and am going to hold off showing you any the Art and furniture and save them for the BIG REVEAL on MAY 11 – BUT I have to show you the coffee table I found!
I wanted something ROUND like this…but NOT this…
because the home is so new , the coffee table is an excellent opportunity to bring some character and age and I was looking for a kind of rustic-ish one but NOT painted but then I kind of wanted some color – like maybe a round coffee table made out of reclaimed wood…
..and GUESS WHAT –
I FOUND A ROUND COFFEE TABLE MADE OUT OF RECLAIMED WOOD!!!!
ON ONE OF MY FIRST SHOPPING trips out I found the COFFEE TABLE of my DREAMS….AND WHAT DO I DO? – I don’t buy it. BECAUSE I had just started I thought – “Well, if this is one of the first ones I found then maybe there is one even better!” .
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!!!!!
…..after looking at approximately 400 more until my eyes crossed I realized that i HAD SEEN THE perfect ONE and THEN went into panic mode – worried that I may have missed out on THE PERFECT ONE …AND of course —-I KNEW they only had one in stock!
I went back to the perfect coffee table store and looked and looked but, sadly…it was GONE…I was kicking my self and I almost cried so before I made a fool of myself I was heading out the door and the owner of the store said,
“Can I help you?”
and I said “Oh, no (sniff, sniff) Well, I had my eye on a coffee table…but it looks like you sold it..”
and he said “Can you describe it?”
and I did and he said, pointing to the back of the store..”We just rearranged…Is that the one?”
AND IT WAS THE ONE!!!!!! AND I GOT IT and all is right with the world!!!!
I decided to take it to the house to make sure it looked right with he DASH AND ALBERT CATS PAW RUG and I have to say!
I LOVE IT.
and so do my little friends!!!!!! xoxo
so – that is the Short and sweet for today…this is the point where there is a lot of finger crossing, schedule coordinating, praying for sunshine and hoping for perfect timing!!!
ALL the furniture is going to be delivered within one 4 day period…which means I will be at their home A LOT…
I Cant believe there are just two more weeks left in the ONE ROOM CHALLENGE …and really if you think about it – just ONE more week because the last week is the REVEAL!!!!!
Even harder to believe than that is that next week is MAY and two weeks from now all of my KIDS will be home for the summer!!!!
MY heart gets lighter by the minute!!!!!!
