I listed our huge couch and huge oak entertainment center for awhile on Craig's List. THEN, dropped the price on BOTH a bit... and the very next day... BOTH sold to two different people! WAHOO.
Here's the pix of the entertainment center:
All we have left is the love seat. I've been working hard on the living room. It was SO FULL. Oh my gosh. Just too much STUFF. ugh So... on the previous posting you saw the shelf that is actually really high, so you don't really see it... it's on the wall where the ceiling is really high.
Now that the excess furniture and stuff is gone:
I convinced Terry that the couch table that he made to SELL, was OURS!
He added a shelf below the slab... to make a fantastic (for us!) entertainment center.
We don't have a fireplace... and thus no mantle. (wah) So I had him make a 'mantel shelf' for me. It's using reclaimed wood that is gorgeous... that he found by the area water pumps... from the shed that had been demolished by a previous storm before we were here. It's amazing what some imagination and a little hand work can do! I will show better close up photos on the next post... but this it:
I love it so much... I'm 'stealing' another mantel shelf he has!!! Coming soon!
Yes, I finally did another layout. Wasn't real happy with it though...
A close up of the side... so you can see the details
I miss all you girls from Oregon! So much. You never realize how GOOD something is, until you no longer have it. It's definitely a NEW life down here in AZ. It's also COLD. BRRRRR I leave for work early in the morning, and it averages 20-30 degrees! It usually warms up during the day to the 60's... so that is nice. But once the sun goes down, so does the temperature!
So, watch for a new update soon. I'm anxious to show you the mantle shelves details...
and our Christmas decor. I worked hard for a day and a half! It's an all new look for us... although I didn't spend but $15! For some ribbon and a few ornaments. Most I already had! From Oregon, of course!
My new 'thing' is to re-use and re-do. My favorite place to shop is the thrift stores, garage sales (when I can) and the flea mkt (when I can). Money is tight... but my 'want to do' is boundless.
Thanks for sticking it out with me... hopefully I can do better about posting.
Love you ALL ... friends!
