On a friday night, after Sanjan went to bed, we both sat down to work on the furniture selection.
|West Elm $399|
|Overstock $178.99 for 2|
Now coming to filling up the wall. I had 2 wall space to decorate but wanted to fill only one wall. I had options going for a mirror, painting or picture frame/frames.
- I have a mirror in almost every room so no mirror here.
- Selecting a painting or poster that we both agreed was not happening.
- So decided to go with picture frames. I had liked the picture frames on the dining room wall of Alicia's home in “The Good Wife”.
Sanjeev helped me hang the frames. First, we marked the center the wall, then divided the wall to 2 halves. Then we measured an equal distance between each frame and using push pins and a leveler, arranged the frames on the wall. Little confusing???
Yes, that's too long to do such a small space. With a full time job, I only have weekends for my projects.
You are peaking at that orange lamp downstairs.....:-)...that's for another post. Soon.
Once everything was set, Sanjeev asked if I wanted a cabinet. Such a sweet guy he is. But we do not have enough space for anything more and I had some other plan for that. Will let you know when its done.
We have had these white chairs for almost a year now, and I washed the covers only once. And I clicked these pictures last weekend.
