All the Frills: What Was I Thinking?

I’m right in a middle of a rather ill-conceived living room refresh. The idea was simple: let’s get some tall, thin bookshelves as opposed to our current short and wide ones so that we both get a bit more floor space (taller shelves equate to needing fewer of them) and have higher shelves where Eleanor can't reach to put breakable items.

We also acquired a bunch more pieces of art that needed to be hung up so we figured we'd do some shuffling and create some additional wall space for them. The problem was that we made a furniture order but it wasn’t being delivered for a good two weeks and then we listed all our current shelves for sale online and they literally all sold and got picked up within seven hours of us listing them. So that’s how this mess happened. Anyways, stay tuned for the refreshed room reveal soon!

Oh, wow I do look forward to how this room ends up.
I'm having work done (small things) in our weekend home and the place is turned totally upside down, there is cement on the floor, a hole in the roof, a leak in the pipe coming into the house.. a walk in the park !

Oh God, isn't that always the way it goes? I currently have a bunch of furniture orders out in the world, but they're all new pieces, not replacements, so we've just been living without, which has kind of been the story of our lives since we moved. It's coming along but it does feel like it takes forever.

Haha, oh no!!! But hey, better they sold early than having them hang around weeks after getting the new stuff! :D
