…since I have bored you with our home improvements! We (Matt) got a lot accomplished this weekend. Besides bagging leaves, fixing the lawnmower, and mowing the lawn, he and his dad built from scratch a linen closet for this wasted space on the second floor (the door to the left is the bathroom, and behind the shelving unit is the door to the crawl space):
It only took them about 4 hours. I was so impressed and now we have somewhere to store our sheets and towels (since March, our towels have been stored in the very large shopping bag they were given to us in at the bridal shower).
After the carpentry was finished, Matt and I shampooed the carpet in the dining and living rooms to prepare for our furniture delivery from Material Culture. I LOVE the new furniture! It’s so beautiful. Matt and his dad moved the old love-seat into the office and I immediately turned it into my nest.
Here are the “clean” carpets. Even thought we emptied the dirty water compartment about 5 times (black water) some of the stains stayed. But I can tell it’s a lot cleaner:
And the new furniture from Material Culture looks great!
I think we need a home improvement break until after New Years.
