My spouse and I rarely agree on interior design aesthetics, but always agree on turning the TV to the HGTV Channel .
If I could use one word to sum up the way I feel right now, it would be: caffeinated.
One of the things my spouse does that grosses me out is drink so much caffeine that it sounds like a #2 explosion in the bathroom. He can't help it ... but holy hell, is he okay in there?!
My readers may think I’m crazy for doing this, but I really love to stop what I'm doing and watch airplanes land and take off. I could spend an afternoon watching airplanes.
Frankly, my dear, I don’t think I'm going to be cooking or cleaning this evening.
And in other news?
Can I just say that I've never been more excited to spend $2700 in my entire life? Vis-a-vis: our new king sized bedroom set (we ended up buying a $1200 mattress, too). We did end up buying it in cherry instead of espresso.
Of course, our sales associate was filling out all the paperwork near the kitchen tables. I won't lie, our current table is glass with scalloped edging and pewter finish, with curved pewter chairs (with cream colored cloth upholstery). It's beautiful ... but holy hell is it a pain in the booty to clean on a regular basis. So much so, that we toss a tablecloth on it (I hate it. It looks gauche; but it's a helluva lot easier to clean the tablecloth than it is to Windex both sides of the glass). We've also had some issues being able to comfortably fit the table in our apartment sized dining areas.
I saw this pub-sized table that seats 6 AND comes with a removable leaf and thought to myself, "My gosh ... we could remove the leaf and fit it into just about any apartment-sized dining space we wanted..." Pending the sale of my current glass table, I do believe I want to make arrangements to buy this baby for $399. Includes the table, 6 chairs and the leaf.
I'm so excited for new furniture ... I know I have some pretty awesome abstract framed prints of wine glasses and coffee cups in a storage closet at the moment because I had no idea what to do with them. And I did just buy a beautiful wall-mounted wine bottle/wine glass rack ... and all of a sudden, I'm thinking: Italian Bistro in my dining area! I can't wait to sell my current table, buy this one .. and go to town with the decoration process.
