They have a small footprint so they are great for smaller spaces AND the wood tops are salvaged wood from demolished houses. Obviously, I'd prefer to not have houses demolished but since it does happen at least the materials can go to other causes. You can see more furniture like this at Viva Terra.
Btw, these are numbered in order of importance. To me.
1. (most important) Fix the attic insulation. As in suck out the old and foam in the new.
2. Remodel the bathroom. It will be so fun and innovative to be able to flush after every
use. Grossed out yet?
3. Fill in our insulation holes in our walls / fix the plaster walls.
4. Paint the walls.
5. Refinish the wood floors.
6. Purge unnecessary items from spare bedrooms and basement. / General organization.
Before I bought this house that organization thing would have been higher up on the list. So would flushing after every use. My values are sadly slipping.
Probably in a combo of white, dark red and a pink. We may have a black border surrounding this decorative border. But WAIT, there's more!!! What we're currently grappling with is the floor tile. We've ordered samples of this:
Isn't our little model so cute? This is when Shelbers was a tiny girl. So anyways, I do la-la-love this tile and am interested in just getting it again but in a color combo that will match the wall tiles. I think this is the option for which I'm going to lobby.
What else are we looking at? Well, redoing all the plumbing (still studying!) Radiant floor heating (especially if we get the marble - brrrrr). A heated towel rack (a girl can dream, right?) A quiet, energy efficient bathroom fan. And still haven't decided on bathroom fixtures. Can't seem to find the perfect fit just yet. Stay tuned!
