Hi there friends, can you believe it’s August already? It feels like summer just started but then I say that with every passing season. It’s surely a sign of old age….. Anyway, here’s what’s been happening on the FTRB homefront.
The long awaited kitchen island lights arrived and promptly got installed…..
It was worth the wait. I feel like I’ve been documenting the whole saga minute by minute but I could not be happier about them. (By the way, do you see the teeny peek of the white cabinets? I’m happy about that too.)
The faucet also got installed…..
Loving how it looks too. This happened a while back but I think I forgot to mention it here.
Still in the kitchen, I ran into Home Depot the other day just to pick up some spray paint and saw this beauty so naturally, it had to come home with me…..
I thought my fiddle leaf trees were fine but when I saw this one, I realized they were not fine at all. In fact, they were quite sad. I’m sort of hoping this one will make them jealous and make them up their game but I’m doubtful.
There’s been some shuffling of furniture too. You know how you move one piece from one room to another and that sets off a whole chain reaction? I did some rearranging in the kitchen and family room and….. yadda yadda, the round coffee table has now landed in the living room.
It works so much better from a practical point of view (plenty of room to spread out books and cocktails) and the shape makes it perfect for the leopard chairs to hug. It was a why-didn’t-I-do-this-years-ago moment.
I’ve been having fun styling it this way and that…..
So that’s some of what’s new around the homestead.
