Four months into home ownership = many many lists and floor plans drawn on the backs of scrap paper. We’ve decided that instead of redoing the kitchen / bathroom / closet addition (added to the house around 1900) we’re doing to tear it down and start anew. So that won’t happen for a couple years. Instead, I’ll focus on the bedroom, living room, dining room, powder room, and sewing/laundry room, all of which need basic work and furniture . That also leaves 2 rooms that we’ll just pretend don’t exist for now. Ok.
The bedroom is looking good! We need a bedframe, and there’s a chair I want to reupholster to put in the corner. I wouldn’t mind a little marble topped Parisian bistro table for the balcony, either, but um, yeah.
Here’s my furniture list. Bring it!
Bedroom: Low, simple bed frame, small desk with fold down lid, chair
Hallway landing: Seating (bench? huge chair?), bookcase, lamp (maybe? what’s good on a big landing?)
Dining room: 8-10 chairs. To match or not to match, that is the questionnnn.
Living room: Couch that the cats won’t destroy, coffee table, fig tree
Sewing room: Giant table, garment rack
Andddddd. The Cottage. This house came with a little guest/mother-in-law cottage, and the tenant is moving out this week. Can I get it serviceable before summer guests? It needs EVERYTHING. Couch, bed, mattress, little dining table and chairs, desk, comfy chair, ummmm who knows what else – I’ve only been in it for a minute and actually can’t wait to get in there to start painting and planning! I love the idea of having a little guest cottage! I think we might put it on Air BnB, has anyone ever done that?
