It’s here! Finally. The house has been cleaned everything is done and we are ready to close and start the 6 week move process! We are really happy with the design decisions we made and now have more to make with the interior.
We purchased the sofa sectional after visiting the house and taping off the dimensions to see how it would fit. We have agreed on the smaller 60 inch round table for the formal/only dining room and instead of buying the chairs that go with the set, we found some tufted chairs for $75/per chair! This will not only save money, it will give it a casual – formal look. We still need the buffet and the bench for the opposite walls, window treatments, a rug and artwork. We have a long way to go.
I finally have decided on a setup that will work for my office which is in the breakfast room that we are not using for dining. This is a win that I sold my husband on this idea. I know I will be happy in this space.
I am also happy my husband is helpful in making the decisions on what we need. We sold our last house with the refrigerator which means we need to buy one. As it turns out, this was great because our new refrigerator will need to be counter depth! These are things you don’t notice until you start putting in the appliances. Our last house had the refrigerator on a separate wall and it was built in for a good size depth refrigerator. A counter depth refrigerator sticks out less and is a lot smaller because of it. I don’t do a lot of storage, so it will be ok to have a smaller refrigerator. The builder assumes the laundry room will have another refrigerator and allows space for it.
Since Luna came into our lives we have adjusted by lowering our mattress to the floor so she can sleep with us and jump off the bed to get to her potty pad. Now that we are going to be setting up our master bedroom we need a solution for Luna to get in and out of the bed. She is now 5 months and jumps on the furniture and sits on the back of the chair in the living room. So we are going to purchase a day bed that will allow her to get in and out of bed! I love dual purpose furniture. It’s called a daybed and we can use it for guests, yay!
Still more decisions to make and things to do. All of this with a senior in high school getting ready for prom and a puppy in training. Life is really busy for us!
