My new sofa and chair were delivered on Thursday and I went into a redecorating frenzy (more like binge) that lasted for two days. In the end I have a space that I'm much happier with. It feels like the kind of space I hoped for when I first moved into the "nice" part of town.
You would only know what an improvement this if if you had seen the previous version, but I never took photos of that because I didn't want anyone to see. A few highlights of my frenzy (not all visible) are: rearranging the furniture into this configuration, replacing brassy gold lamps with silver ones, framing two prints I've had forever, finding a new end table for the chair, hanging mirror circles on the sides of my canvas, making covers for my camera and pantry bookcases and finding a starbust mirror piece to go over the pantry bookshelf. Whew. I did a lot in two days.
Now I just need to stop Gypsy from scratching up my new furniture.
