I finished putting together the rest of my furniture yesterday. Plus got rid of the little island of crap in the middle of the floor. Then today did a sweep and a mop. (Very 20th century; I miss my Swiffer and Swiffer WetJet.)
The place is looking so nice. Clean, white, modern, minimalist. Happy, happy Scott.
Although, I bought the wrong color cover for my ottoman, so I have to go back to IKEA again. (Argh!)
Tonight my friend Lawrence came over to totally do for me help put up my window treatments. We did the bedroom first, b/c it was trickiest. I got two Roman shades, which side-by-side would cover the window. Lawrence did a masterful job. Thank you, Lawrence!
We were stymied, though, by the the other two jobs in the living room. For the big window, I am going to need ceiling hooks for the curtain rod, not wall hooks that came with the IKEA rod. (No wall space above my window). And for the smaller window – d’oh! – despite doing all the measurements before I went to IKEA, I must’ve grabbed the wrong size blinds, b/c they were totally too short. 😦
Oh well, one out of three ain’t bad. And it’s not a race. I have plenty of time to keep getting the place decorated. It’s really coming along. Thanks again, Lawrence.
