Well, things have slowed down some (in my opinion). The canned lights were installed as was the sheet rock and "mudding" for the brand new ceiling. The dark line around the top shows where the paint stopped and the old ceiling started on the original dark paneling installed when--the 1970's? I have been assured that Monday things will fire up again. Keep in mind, my goal is to have everything in place by Friday night. I DON'T want to be cramming a move-in on Easter Sunday eve...
In the meantime, I am working ahead as much as possible and take great pride in my latest achievements--assembling my favorite new chairs. Container Store has these terrific bungee desk chairs--they are SO comfortable. Thankfully, Ikea opened a store here in Centennial, just down the road and they happened to have these heavy duty chairs in the green I was hoping to find. Both chairs were easy to assemble (after just a small amount of huffing and puffing).
It turned out that Ikea and Container Store had exactly what I was looking for. Was SO thankful for Ikea's budget pricing and Container Store's Home Office Sale!
