Folks, are you in for a ride today!
I MADE ANOTHER VLOG!
Yes, I know. I can’t help myself. They. are. so. fun!
So, wanna know what I’ve been up to lately? Hint: the video shows some super top secret stuff, as well as more detail about today’s post.
(Here’s a direct link for all email subscribers that don’t get the embedded videos.)
I went shopping! And like I said the other day, I’m going to finish this piano room once and for all!
Here are the goods in the back of my car. Note to self: it’s probably a good idea to make sure everything will fit before you load up your cart and check out. I had a mini panic attack in the parking lot trying to put all the crap into the car.
I had this going on in the piano room until yesterday:
It’s really no fun at all to sit in those chairs. I feel like I’m on a toilet or something.
So I bought new chairs. Ya, I know I sound flippant about this, but in reality this chair purchase was a long time coming. I’ve been saving my pennies for awhile for these bad boys.
Travis was my helper for the day. He is finally old enough (9.5) that he’s actually a help now.
At ikea you buy the furniture and the covers separate so you can get the color you want. You can use the chairs without adding a cover, but I think they look like something you’d see at a doctor’s office, so I opted for covers.
And here they are with the covers.
The covers specifically say to not iron them, so I didn’t, and they are so wrinkly I’m getting hives looking at them. I think I’m going to break the rules and bust out my iron anyway.
Travis is so chill.
As you can see I took the curtains back down so I can alter them. And here’s a pretty good shot of the whole room, crap piled high on the piano and all.
I didn’t measure the room before I purchased the chairs. I just assumed they would fit, and they do – thank goodness!
Now I just need to get those curtains hung back up, add a few pieces of artwork, and spruce up the place a bit with some accessories and the room will be as good as done.
And I can’t wait to have one complete room in this house!
The reason I went with these chairs is because I liked the look and price of them. They are $130 each at ikea, which is a lot cheaper than most chairs I’ve found anywhere else. Plus, I wanted something that was more comfortable to sit in than a dining chair, but still looked nice.
I do want to note, the chairs are comfortable enough but they aren’t the most comfy chairs I’ve ever sat in in my life. They are good enough for a room that doesn’t get constant use like our family room does.
I’ll keep you posted on all these projects I’ve got going on around these parts!
