Our place is chaotic. This weekend, it got even more chaotic-er. For example, the record player seemed like a great place to stash my shoes and Stephen's wallet/sunglasses.
Get a load of this mess!
The good news: It's a mess with a purpose. We've packed most of what we want to keep -- but not use -- away.
The rest, we've taken to the Salvation Army.
While we were there, we found this great side table for only $4. The best way to spiff up any Salvo find is to repair and then coat with fun spray paint. That's exactly what we did:
It's still not a pretty site. Mismatched pillow everywhere.
But we've crossed some major to-dos off the list. Like adding a lamp above the dining room table. Changing out the light fixture in the dining-room-turned-family-room. And various other things we'll get into soon.
For now, this is the only near-finished section. Notice, however, how we still haven't completed the paint job.
As a result of our weekend preoccupations, we ate mostly bagels and caprese salads. But we'll get up some great recipes for you soon!
