Another weekend down, another project partially finished...
No pictures to share but I'm just about finished with my moving announcements - yippee. I had planned to do something of a little mailing that included a pen so people could jot down our new digits in their books. Of course I didn't want to start on it until we were finished with the reno and now I'm too bothered with other projects to do anything that elaborate. What I ended up doing is a lot less exciting than my original idea but at least it will be finished in this decade. Note to self: buy stamps! I'll share a photo next week once I know our friends and family had a chance to receive them.
I never did make it to Ikea so the decision on the Louis style sideboard for my office will have to be delayed for another day. I also realized the sizes of the frames that Ikea makes aren't quite right for the Chanel poster. I could have a large custom mat made which would be half way between a custom frame job and a smoosh into Ikea frame. Decisions, decisions.
As for the living room/music room, Ive sent off a request to find out where my couch and chairs are. The max delivery time is still a while away but I'm hoping they can be finished sooner. I'd really like to be able to sit down in my living room! Also, I think Ive been convinced to wallpaper the middle tower. For those curious why I don't want to paper the shelves that have doors - I like the asymmetry plus the paper would be barely noticeable once the doors were shut and the shelves had their wares on them. So as soon as I find my books, I'll change the shelving heights and paper the middle too. The first day it was up, I wasn't so sure if it was all too busy but now its really grown on me. I think it can handle more paper.
We have a lot to do this weekend so I don't think I'll get a chance to paint the guestroom desk and nightstand. But I do want to pick up a mirror to hang over the desk (which was suggested by a few of the commenters so thanks very much for the idea!!!). Not only is it practical but it should achieve a little more sparkle in the room reflecting the light from the chandelier.
I found this one at Lowes this weekend but left to think it over. Its only $45 so it seems like a good buy. What do you think?
