that time of year again when the Christmas decorations are put away and I’m bored of what I did to the living room last january. most of what I did was a ‘live and learn’ moment. we chose a white-ish rug last year when we had a new rug on our brain. I still love the rug, but seriously….. 2 black dogs and white rugs do not a clean looking house make. I could vacuum that sucker everyday and it would STILL be hairy. And it was too small. So I researched it A LOT and came up with the conclusion that we can’t have anything white (duh) and it has to be dog friendly and kid friendly (hopefully some day). I stumbled across the website called FLOR. It’s these modular carpet tiles like you see in retail stores and hospitals. genius, I tell you! So these tiles come in about a zillion colors and patterns and very very economical. sure, they are sort of indoor/outdoor looking, but the dogs were wrestling on them HARD before we even tacked them together and they stayed put! But the very best part? you can replace a tile if it’s too far damaged to salvage, but if there puke on it, you just lift that tile, hose it off, and let it dry. you can even BLEACH these bad boys! pretty awesome Id say.
We also got some new curtains from West Elm. Blue velvet… so luxurious ; )
new art! from Etsy and fellow photog friends.
my Dad finally is back from helping orphans in Haiti, I finally get my Christmas present: a built in for the TV wall. : ) Yay! no more college dorm room hodgepodge! It’s been 3 years and I’m ready.
Grandma Newton can watch me cook now.
and now the dining room…. this table is for sale! : )
asking $1,500 or best offer. pick up in Wahoo, but would consider delivering to Lincoln/Omaha for a tad extra. It’s only 2 years old, but it’s frankly too fancy for what we want in a dining room table. has a leaf and 6 chairs… they are in like-new condition and have been scotch guarded. Custom round glass for the top (when the leaf isn’t in it).
and the backyard is this spring’s project. we were ready for a fenced in yard, like yesterday.
