Our business and the boy's school are 5 minutes from each other, unfortunately, our house is 35-40 minutes from both of them. Strangely, with fighting children in the car, I do not enjoy this drive very much. Sometimes, I drive this loop three times a day. Over three hours a day in the car! So, we are moving. I am excited! So much shopping to do....
My husband has been less than enthusiastic about my shopping plans. The style I love has changed in the past year or so, my furniture has not. So I have come up with a brilliant solution! BRILLIANT!! Are you ready?
I call it the "Furniture Exchange Program". It costs zero dollars. At least in my head. I explained it to my husband like this. We will sell the the things that either don't fit right or work well with the new house and exchange them for money, which we will then exchange for new things. Probably not actually "new" things, but new to us. See? no "new" money. Free... right? Exactly.
The only restriction is that upholstered furniture has to be new. I have a healthy fear of bugs, which I am pretty sure live in all pre-loved, upholstered furniture. Anything else, bring on the old and broken!
I thought I might show a few pictures of our current house, there won't be any room makeovers here, but you will be able to see style changes in our next house. I may, in the next few days show some of my favorite projects in this house. There are bunches of them, pre-blog of course :-)
I am not sure why this makes me nervous but here goes...
I will miss this closet! I built the cabinets from scratch!
This is what I may miss the most! It's soooo peaceful!
I have a thousand plans for the new house and of course, absolutely no pictures! Soon though. Let the packing begin!
