New Furniture!

Last fall, we started the project to finally furnish our house.  We’ve lived here for about 2 and a half years now, but most of the main floor was really light on furniture and the pieces we did have weren’t really a good fit for the space.  It took several months for us to make…

Some More New Furniture!

A couple tables for our living room were delivered on Friday to go with our new couch and chairs: The coffee table and credenza (behind the couch) are from the same collection as the furniture we got for our family room.  We’re thinking this will be good later on if we decide to move furniture…

We finally got our new couch and a couple of new chairs for our living room delivered yesterday!  Here’s a picture of them: We think the new furniture looks a lot nicer in the living room than our old couch did, and it’s pretty comfortable too.  The only thing we’re really noticing is how out-of-place…

We’re so excited to finally have a couple of furniture deliveries scheduled this week for items we’ve ordered over the last few months.  We have a new sofa and a couple of upholstered chairs coming on Wednesday … and a new coffee table and credenza (for behind the sofa) being delivered on Friday. After this,…

We ordered some new furniture for our living room back on September 19th.  At the time, they told us that the fabric pieces we ordered would take 60-90 days to come in and the leather chair and ottoman would probably be more like 90-120 days.  Since it had been almost 2 months, I called yesterday…

After being in our house for about 2 years and having basically no furniture in our living room during that time, we finally decided it was time to start furniture shopping. Our living room is pretty large (about 30′ long x 16′ wide), but really long and narrow with lots of doorways that make furniture…

Our dining room project is no where near done, but when it is, we’ll have at least one picture to hang on the wall! I’m really challenged when it comes to picking out artwork for our house, which is why we have only about a half a dozen pictures on the wall in the whole…

Christmas Decorating …

I realize I’m probably at least a couple weeks late in posting these, but here are some pictures of our house all decorated for Christmas.  Better late than never!

About a month ago (I’m so behind in posting!), we bought a new buffet for our dining room.  It’s part of the Canopy collection of assemble-it-yourself furniture at Wal-Mart and it’s actually called an “Anywhere Console”. At first, we were a little leary about purchasing something like this at Wal-Mart, but it seemed like it…

Update:  The pictures below of the bookshelves and accent table we ordered for our sunroom are from the original product pages on the JCPenney and Target websites, but the products are no longer available online.  Sorry for the inconvenience! About a year ago, we painted and got new furniture for our sun room, which we’re now…

When we installed the new binds in the kitchen a couple of weeks ago, we had to take down the old curtain rod that had been there so there would be room to mount the shades.  The old curtain rod was one of the standard white metal ones that was too small for the rod…

Slowly, but surely, we’re covering up our bare windows at least enough that the neighbors can’t watch everything we do at night.  Over the last few days, we finally got around to installing the blinds I ordered several weeks ago for the laundry room and the bathroom on the third floor.  It’s so nice to…
