I hope you all had a great weekend!
My weekend was downright boring and dull!
But it was my choice
because I was nursing a sinus infection
due to our ever changing weather
here in the Midwest.
I tried to stay inside and rest
but you know how that goes...
I ended up moving furniture around
and packing a lot of my dishes that I don't use.
Mr. Beaux thinks I am crazy
but my theory is
that it all has to get packed eventually
and if I am productive then I feel like
I am moving forward
and not stuck in a holding pattern.
OK, follow along while I lead you
through the changes...
Remember the pretty china hutch
that I bought for the Living Room
and was in the process of refinishing?
Yeah, well it never got
much past this stage here.
I just didn't have a big chunk
of time to devote to it.
So, we had a friend come over
and help us move it out
to the garage this past week.
So, then I had a big blank
wall staring at me...
I had the sofa up against the wall
for about a minute and
that made the wall even larger.
I put my two Bergere chairs
on that side of the room
and searched around for
artwork for the wall.
Remember these botanical prints
that I framed for the kitchen a while back?
They were down in storage
so I had Mr. Beaux hang them
up for me on Sunday.
And just in time too!
We had another showing Sunday afternoon.
Didn't he do a great job?
He was really my hero this weekend!
He fixed our shower so that it has
awesome water pressure now,
painted the messed up ceiling
in the foyer with an exact
paint match (not easy to do),
ran a million errands
while I was sick
and brought me chicken soup!
The height of the pictures balances
out the fireplace on the other side
of the room and because they are all in
the same frame they look neat and tidy.
In the photos the wall looks
much larger than it really is...
I placed my tray table in between
the two chairs and used
just a few accessories.
The power of three!
Keeping the clutter down is important!
I selected the blue and white plate
to bring the colors from the fireplace
shelves over to this side of the room.
I placed the plate on the vintage books
so that the heights would be varied as well.
The showing on Sunday went well
according to the feedback.
But the realtor says that
"she doesn't know where they are"
which means that we are still
in our holding pattern...
But I will continue to move forward
by packing more boxes
(a co-worker brought me a car-full today)
Until Next Time,
