work in progress!

February 27, 2011

Something in me clicked this week and I had an overwhelming desire to redecorate our cozy loft.  It isn’t so much that it was badly decorated & in need of a makeover or anything… I suppose it was more that I never fully settled in after moving here a year ago.  However, after spending the last 12 months falling in love with living downtown it looks like hashi and I will be here together through the end of the year (at least).  Which means it’s time to stop procrastinating and finally make the place feel like home!

We’ve gone through a multitude of different plans this weekend.  There have been grand ideas involving new furniture and painted walls as well as small tasks such as finally hanging pictures in the living room and installing the curtain divider I’ve wanted since day one!   I’m not sure how many projects we’ll accomplish before we get distracted by a new activity but over the past 36 hours we’ve framed & hung pictures in the living room, started installing ceiling light fixtures in two rooms, installed a picture ledge in the bedroom as well as framed art to put on it, relocated a mirror, and created the most awesome solution for my jewelry collection EVER!  We’ve also managed two trips to ikea, one stop at target, and a quick run to home depot!

If all goes well perhaps by the end of next weekend I’ll have a couple of boldly painted accent walls and that curtain divider I’m hoping for!  But for now here are a few progress pictures.  Is anyone else using this weekend to do some decorating?
