Small Change, Big Change.

We updated the bedroom a while back and I forgot to blog about it.  We painted, got a new bedspread, sheets, and curtains, and I made some pillows.

Also, we (mainly William) began demo on the master bath today.

Can’t see the forrest for the trees…

I don’t want to think about how many walnut trees died so that we could have beautiful floors.  Their death was not in vain.

Yesterday we made a VERY long trip to IKEA in Atlanta.  It was so fun, but so long.  We got some great stuff!!!  Two loveseats, a coffee table, a rug, and six dining room chairs!  Hooray!  I think I want to move the rug into the bedroom and get something bigger for the living room, but we can leave it there for now.

I put all this in one post since the furniture is in some of the pictures of the floors…
