So, not too many changes in here that you will notice.
I did purge dishes etc, cleared out drawers and cabinets
and thinned out the collections.
Swapped out some lamps and tried to get the
room out of the bowling alley look, but
it is so narrow that bringing furniture out into the room
would mean walking around it
all the time like an obstacle course.
I did try different layouts and then
threw in the towel.
I swapped out the
chairs from the porch and now the chairs
are with their matching tables.
Since for years I had pizza and teens eating here
I had the fabric seat ones on the porch.
This great room is three stories high.
When I tiled the first floor many years ago,
I could not afford hardwood, and
now I don't wish the expense to add it,
since I don' t know how long I'll be here.
I know I would love it, but priorities....
Tile certainly helps keep the house cool.
105 degrees now at 7:00 pm
111 for later in the week
You may have noticed I love using multiple mirrors
to reflect all around the room
Inside the bins are dried pods and fall pieces.
Yep, I am getting ready for fall.
September is fall, period, don't argue,
and I took advantage of the
"purge and clean"
to remove all the summer shells out of here.
Vintage handblown jars full of naturals.
Making shades, as I had planned;
only a few more to go.
Polka dot swiss
Strip shade over vintage frame
gives of the coolest light and shadows
