First and foremost it's time to admit to the internet that contrary to popular belief: namely mine, I am NOT handy. I can build you a piece of Ikea furniture easily but more than that I am worthless when it comes to home improvement projects. I think it's because I have no patience and want instant gratification whereas true home improvement takes time. All this to say it took me a good hour to hang up the curtains in our bedroom. Sure now that they're done and the ones in the guest room, it should be easier to tackle the living room. I suppose it's worth it to have drapes and not just panels nailed to the wall or held up by painter's tape.
As you can tell: we do not have a bed frame. Once it came apart we just kept it apart and gave it to a friend since we'll be upgrading the bed, mattress, and bedding. I want to get new nightstands but I'm gonna wait for the bed but everything in this room must go.
I put perfume bottles on a tray.
Matt trimmed the tree and I grabbed some trimmed flowering branches and put them in water. They're so purty, I wish they'd stay this way forever.
I bought myself this waterstone succulent as a homewarming present for myself.
Ah little jars of q-tips and cotton rounds and cotton balls.
