Moving day is only two days away. Let’s face it, Tofu (the dog), hates apartment living. We’re six floors up and no backyard. His favorite hobbies are to smell plants, eat random things and listen for delivery trucks. Really, I can’t blame him.
My husband is still working on painting the interior white. As I mentioned before, the whole house was a light gray including the ceilings. After he started painting, it made a drastic difference: from cave, to bright and open. I’ve been working on the backyard, raking over 15 bags of leaves and I’m not done yet! Luckily I have music, Kind bars and yoga pants. Without those, I’m not sure how I’d get by.
Besides those few tasks, we’ve been waiting to do any major projects because we’re going to have a contractor take down a few walls. With the walls coming down, we’ll replace the floor at that time along with backsplash in the kitchen. In other words, stay tuned because the projects will start rollin’ in.
Yesterday, we received our first big piece of furniture. The dining table! Honestly, I am super excited about this piece. Previously, we owned a World Market table and we were very happy with it. They have everything priced perfect in my opinion and you can even get coupons. The only downside to World Market is they need to make more modern furniture! Maybe it’s a good thing though or I’d buy it all.
This time around, we decided on the Weston mid century dining table. When we both saw the table, we knew it was the one. The color is light, yet not as light as Heywood Wakefield (which isn’t a bad thing but we were both visioning a little darker), it’s solid wood and the price can’t be beat.
I waited what felt like hours for the delivery guys to show up but when they did, they were very nice and set the huge table box in my dining room. When I opened the box, I felt like a giant light shined on the table and a chorus started singing lightly. It is absolutely beautiful. Even better than I anticipated.
The legs came packed in individual boxes and each took two nuts and two washers. That was it. I even stood the table right side up myself and that’s when I began to drool. The color matched our new chairs perfectly and in that moment, I could image no carpet, the George Nelson bubble lamp hanging above it, some table decorations and a beautiful credenza along the wall. It’s starting to feel like home.
