Hey all! Did you think I had fallen of the face of the earth?
Well, no. It's just been very busy around here the past few days.
Got the youngest through her middle school celebrations
and off on her East Coast class trip,
and despite migraines the past four days
I finally finished something I've been working on for a long time.
Inspired by this at Ikea:
I purchased this at Goodwill:
Because I couldn't handle these stacked under the hall table in the entry anymore:
or loaded up in this basket:
Or smooshed in the wicker etagere in the living room:
Things had gotten out of hand in this book loving household!
Way out of hand.
I did a little rearranging, and moved the Dr Seuss plant out.
and moved the palm and the vintage wash-stand over here:
from here, where the new-to-me book case moved in.
On this lovely, blank wall in the living room.
But first I had to gather all the books:
and straighten out what was staying put:
and bring this baby in to the house (easier said than done, I can tell you that.)
Thanks to my strong and determined husband, the shelves are in place,
with only minor damage to the paint and no pulled muscles.
I've got an improved reading spot.
And a much improved living room!
With room to expand, because there are four shelves just waiting for books!
I think the room looks very grown up now, don't you agree?
Now, it's on to the office, which is overflowing with more books, books, books.
But that's a project for another day.
Today I'm going to enjoy the grown-up living room, and have a little sit-down in my reading chair, with a new book and a cup of tea.
It's the grown-up thing to do!
