As if I didn't have enough moving and shuffling going on around here, my husband and I went out furniture shopping on Labor Day (with the REST of the world, I might add!) and ordered some things. First of all, our kitchen chairs have just had it. They are 30 years old.....and keep coming apart. We've repaired them over and over and now they are just ready to retire! So we shopped online for unfinished chairs and then we went out looking at a few furniture stores. We found a great little pub style table and four chairs for our kitchen for less than the price of what we would have paid for those chairs. I am ready for a new look anyway, so I am glad we did it.
While we were looking, we found a lovely bedroom suite, with a sleigh bed, which I've always admired....and decided to update our son's room, so that it would be available for a guest room as well. We've really not been equipped very well for having guests....just a single bed downstairs. If we had a couple all we could do was move in a trundle.....so now we are going to have a nice outfitted room that we won't even mind having guests stay in. But we had to move out all of my son's stuff so that I could clean the carpet and give it a new coat of paint. Well, I got the room emptied and the carpet cleaned today. OH my word...it was a mess. I handled the empty nest and missing my son by not really going in his room very often....and when I moved all the furniture and found all that dirt, boy oh boy, did I get a work out!! It is officially going to be clean for a change!! I am excited. Now I need to go and find some new bedding!! That part is the FUN part!
So that's why I've been a little scarce......too much to DO!!! I'll catch up, hopefully and be back full swing. See you later!
