I had to work Saturday from 2:00 p.m. until about 7:15 p.m. While I was at work,
Today we hung curtains, hauled furniture back into each room, I washed the dust off everything, and tried to redecorate all the china cabinets. I went down to the basement and brought up my old (1950's ?) metal TV trays to use on top of 3 cabinets.
This is my largest cabinet against the new living room wall:
On the opposite wall of the living room:
and in the dining room:
This is the top of the curio cabinet also in the dining room:
I stacked the six green boxes that hold my dinner napkins next to the largest cabinet in the living room (which is right next to the dining room). I placed a live plant atop the boxes.
I used to have these boxes on top of the cabinet, but they were a pain to bring down to find the color napkin that I needed. Now they are easy access.
I really like my oil landscape against the green walls (in the living room).
Earlier this morning I went through my clothes closet and removed a lot of summer clothing--a big tote full!
I have an exact size tote full of winter jackets that need to go in the closet. Unfortunately there is no room, even though I took all of this out. Right now the closet has just the right amount of space between hangers. I don't know what I will do with all those winter jackets. I have resolved to STOP BUYING CLOTHES! I have way more than I need.
I showed Sweet, Cheap Husband, the pics I posted of the green/red living room. He did not seem all that enthused. He said he likes it just the way it is. Trying to get him into home decorating is like whacking my head against a concrete wall!
