Current State of Affairs

20 July 2014

For me blogging is a simple way to update friends and family about our progress with the house without having to tell the same story over and over. There is no pressure to plan updates or fix grammatical errors. Blogging allows me to share the moments worth sharing, laugh at our mistakes, and remind us of the progress we have made.

Currently, we are still working on the never ending dining room china cabinet. We need to scrape paint of the glass doors and finish sanding, priming, and painting the bottom four drawers.

In the living room, the gallery wall above the sofa is almost complete. I have to order prints for the remaining frames. I just need to find a vendor that prints your Instagram pictures in to 5x5 prints. In addition to the gallery wall, I have finished styling the pipe shelf unit Jesse made. It seemed like the right spot to the obligatory wedding shrine for child-less couples. Lastly, we are in the middle of painting the ceiling a very light white-ish grey color.

Just to make sure we do not loose focus of where we are going with the design of the living room, I have inspiration taped up on the wall. On a positive note, I have ordered the Cole & Son's wallpaper. This will go below the chair rail in dining and living rooms.

As if we did not have enough going on, we are starting on a new area of the house. We started painting over the horrible green paint in the upstairs hallway and are completing a new Ikea build in hack with Rast.
