When Michael moved in with me, neither one of us had much furniture. The logical thing to do was to hit IKEA to buy a bed, 2 bookcases, a dining room table, bar, sofa, coffee table, side tables, floating shelves, tv table, computer table, and a host of small stuff. We always knew it would be transitional furniture as we gathered ‘old stuff’ together.
Michael and Tyler are headed back to Atlanta today, and Michael is supposed to return mid to late week. Packed up with them is our tv, the tv table, and the small bookcase that Tyler will use in his room. In return, he will buy us a small tv that we will keep in the bedroom. As most of you know, this house is much smaller than the one we just left, the one that easily held ours and my parents households together. Moving these pieces has allowed a few of the ‘we don’t really have room for this’ furniture to be moved upstairs into our bedroom. They’re pieces we love and are happy to have in what will become our sanctuary once again.
A couple of photos taken in our last bedroom for reference…
That coffee table is in gnarly shape so it is going to be taken apart and possibly stored to be salvaged into something else at a later point.
My jewelry will go back to this display, with a little different flair.
In other news, the stencil came in a couple of weeks ago. I love it, but we’ve decided there are too many angles and turns in the bedroom walls to make it anything less than hell to apply. I’m going to use it in the dining room and do a freehand design in the bedroom.
