After I got most of the mess cleaned up, I finally feel like we have a nice room. Sure, we had decent furniture before but it was mainly functional and not so pretty. I totally love our new look. Today, we went out and bought a new comforter. I'd had a different one in mind when we took the trip to good 'ole Target (pronounced tar-jay in my mind... ;-)), but we ended up with this one and I think it looks pretty good.
Much better, right? Well, except for the dresser in the corner with the TV on it. I haven't decided what to do about that yet. It looks sort of out of place and I can't quite figure out what it needs. Any ideas?
The rest of the house is coming together... The living room is basically done, except for pictures that need to be hung. The dining area - which is sort of in the living room - is not so good looking. I've got stuff piled on the table, pictures resting on one of the chairs, a box on the floor and pictures on the bar along with papers and junk that needs to be put away. *sigh* The kitchen looks like it was hit by a tornado. And let's not even talk about the spare bedroom right now. It looked manageable before we put the [now] extra bed in there.
So, we're making progress...but it's really slow. Which sucks because we're in the single digit countdown. =( I really wanted to have this place spic-and-span before he leaves, but at the point I'm not sure if that's going to happen. I'll take some pictures of the place and post them later so you can really see what I'm talking about. I took some a couple days ago, but we've moved furniture since then.
I'll leave you with this picture for today. We were sitting on the couch and I saw this when I looked out the window and just had to step onto the patio and take a picture of it. =)
Rainbows are so clear here! I've never seen them so bright before moving here. Probably because it mists while the sun is shining. I totally understand why they put rainbows on their tags and license plates now. =)
