A few posts back I declared this as the Year of Serious Home Improvement. :)
Anyway, we are off to a good start.
I've made a list of projects to complete this week AND next week. Fortunately they are projects that I can work on while Brandon is at work (assuming Riley cooperates!) and then he can help me with "his part" in the evenings.
Today I purchased a TV stand from Walmart...
I had seen it online and it seemed to be just what we needed. According to the website, they don't carry it in the store so we knew we would have to order it.
On a random trip down the furniture aisle today, Riley and I happened upon the TV stand we saw online!
I bought it. I brought it home. I assembled it... Brandon had to help me with some of it. :)
I'm normally quite good at following directions and assembling furniture, but I had some problems with this one.
In my defense, the directions were stupid! Only pictures. No words. NONE.
Once I figured out what I did wrong, it was a pretty simple fix... it just required an extra set of hands.
The finished product.
Yesterday, Brandon cut another shelf for the bathroom closet... we've only been saying we would do that since October 2005.
On list list to work on the rest of the week:
*Moulding in the guest room
*A window treatment in the guest room
I'll take pictures when it's done.
I know. I know. My guest room was supposed to be finished by Labor Day. Then I told you it would be done before Christmas... BUT... I decided on a few other things I wanted to add to the original list so HOPEFULLY it will be done this week. :)
