Weekend Plans



Tomorrow morning some friends are dropping by to look at the available plots in our community. They can't get over the fact that how big the house is, specially the kitchen/Family Room area. They have only been looking for 1 month and after seeing our house, they are practically ready to move in. LOL!

We are going to get some furniture this weekend. We bought most of our furniture when we moved to our first house. Everything is still pretty new, and we got nice things that would last a while. We have to get some barstools and a nightstand.

This is our Master Bedroom collection. The photo is from the store's website, not our room. It shows all the things we got - Queen Bed, NightStand, Dresser & Mirror, TV Armoire.



However, we only got 1 nightstand because that's all that would fit in the MBR at the time. Now, we have a bigger MBR and a sitting room attached to it. We've moved the Armoire into the sitting room. So, we're getting the other nightstand. Now, the problem is what to do to Mehul's crib? He sleeps in the crib by my side and hops over early morning for snuggles. I don't want that to stop! I think we'll get the nightstand and assemble and put it someplace else. I am afraid of waiting too long and then not having it available anymore.

BTW, the paint color I've chosen for the MBR is pretty similar to this one. Maybe a touch darker. I didn't realize it, but I was probably going by this picture I had seen more than 2 years ago when we first researched for the furniture! Ack! I really like the color, though. We had done it in the Library in the Townhouse. I do have pictures of the library somewhere. Let me see if I can find it. I had prepared a flyer (with many photos) for the ad for sale/renting of the townhouse. DH and I feel we got a great response for our townhouse, because the ad was really good LOL. People really want to look at photos before they go to see the house.

Yay. Found it. The paint is called Woven Mystery. Pretty sure it's American Tradition paint. Doesn't that Library look great? For the record, I painted the entire room with very little help from DH. I did it over the last winter when I was staying home. Little did I know we'd be leaving that place so soon. *sob*


The new house looks very bare, which is why I'm not sharing many photos. I have to personalize it. Paint, Decorate, and Accessorise. It will take time before this house feels like 'Home'. It took us about 1.5 years to decorate the other house. I really enjoy the process of planning and researching it. So, I'm not in any hurry :-)

Last night's Layout. I can't believe I hadn't scrapped this photo. I have many beautiful photos from this particular day. My most favorite one is this.

Gorgeous
