So once again, we kinda liked the paint the old owners had going on. In person, it's a very light gray, bordering on tan. I knew I wanted red curtains in there before we even moved in. And I love how they look. We sprung for new furniture for this room because basically, we had nothing to put in here! All of the furniture came from an itty bitty Ashley furniture dealer in our area, called Avanti Interiors. The couple that own the showroom, Michele and Leo, were quite possibly the nicest people ever. They spent hours tracking down exactly what we wanted and even placed our order before we gave them a cent. That is the definition of good people.
The table is another one of my faves...an Ikea score. BUT, it's real wood! So it was going for more than the usual $149. I think it was originally $299 but the day we went, we found out that they had no more. I was almost in tears. Seriously, I like it that much. Luckily, after a quick perusal of the crappy As-Is section, we found the same table for $149 plus an extra 10% discount for being there between 3 and 5 pm on a Saturday. Sweet. It was even already put together, which we know is half the battle of Ikea furniture. Anyway, I went cheapy with the kitchen table & chairs because I expect it to get beat up by my future hellions.
Tomorrow, we'll take a trip to the place to the magical land of the takeout menu.
I'll be riding my unicorn.
Oh and win a pillow!
