I LOVE FRIDAYS! I get to write about whatever I want and not ask Jen.
Ok funny story for you.
Wednesday night at 9:00 the smoke detectors went off upstairs where the bedrooms are. It was insanely loud. The smoke detectors are hardwired into the ceiling, so they were ALL GOING OFF. The only way we could get them to shut off was to shut the power off to the upstairs. Adlee woke up and was crying (of course) but MATEA SLEPT THROUGH IT. I was shocked. And it kinda freaked me out a little bit. Page, our dog, had a panic attack, followed Aaron out to the garage where the circuit breaker is, and she peed in the garage. It was crazy.
We turned the power back on Thursday morning and all was back to normal. So weird.
Ok. Moving on.
I like this rug. If our house in Duluth ever sells and if we ever get to redo our main floor I think I would like it in my kitchen:
I didn’t think I like chevron, but maybe I do, I don’t know.
I really want a square upholstered coffee table in my living room. Do I need one? No. Do I want one? Yes. Do I want to make one? Sure. Well, do I ACTUALLY REALLY want to make one? No, I’d rather buy one. I like this one from Fancy Goods, and she gives some really good instructions…maybe someday I’ll tackle one.
Carol from The Design Pages painted a piece of furniture this color and it turned out amazing:
I love it. Check it out.
I think this looks really delicious.
In other news, I’m trying to find some good “money saving” blogs. Any tips?
Next week I think I will start The Great Room Shuffle at our house. I’ll fill you in with photos when we start moving everybody around.
And in a few short hours I will be seeing this:
That lift bridge is just a beauty.
