The arrival & a *few* decor pictures

June 5, 2009 § Leave a comment

So, the arrival was a bit rough. Once I crossed Kentucky, I felt further and further away from home, the drive was getting uncomfortable, and I was in no mood to carry boxes inside after driving 11 hours. It was about 95 degrees upon my arrival. I met up with my snarky landlord, moved the boxes in, and basically just crumbled… called mom and dad, who got me a hotel room, took a shower, and went to bed in a nice Hampton. I did snap some pictures before I did that of my new place. The photos don’t do it justice of the size, and it’s actually quite sunny. I had the blinds closed.

So as you can see, it’s an odd space that needs some work. I’ll get there, but for now, it is what it is. Here are a few little extra teasers:

my temporary sofa- a white FatBoy, 2 recovered cushions courtesy of my mama and some great fabric from the scrap exchange, and pillows made from sale napkins at Anthropologie

So, we’re getting there. Slowly but surely.

I can’t lie, I’m a little frustrated with the couch search. Does anyone know of any non-Ikea resources THAT DELIVER that are super inexpensive??? Craigslist is fine, but I kind of live in the Sticks and options are limited, and PLUS, I don’t really have any way to get a couch inside even if I find one. Not to mention, used couches creep me out a little. Who knows what happened on them.

Anyway, don’t give up on me – I have internet now! Which means I can update. I’ve missed it. Look for many, many updates in the coming weeks as I have very little to do.
