We're hopefully two weeks away from closing on our flat!
Tim and I slurp wine at night, sit in the happy place, and decorate in our heads :) I've had a ton of fun with floorplanner.com and now we know what kind of sofa and furniture will fit in our new living room!
Right now we've decorated with found/thrifted stuff that I love but that will not work...so we're slowly getting stuff together.
We've started PURGING our entire house. We've boxed up to sell any random wine glasses, tim's immense wooden bowl collection, all the clothes we don't wear anymore, and a ton of coats
At salvation arm family store (on 4th at Geary) we were donating a bunch of old clothes and crap, and happened inside on their 50% off day and found this AWESOME dining table (mid century, green varnish) with 6 chairs for $200! We still haven't gotten rid of our old dining table, but we decided we'll park on the street for a couple of weeks and store it in there. It was too good to pass up. As I was in line to buy it, a woman ran up to the register and told the clerk that she was going to buy it. I was like, "um, nope - I'm already in line." She gave me an annoyed look and tried to tell me it would be impossible to paint and re-upholster. I made Tim talk to her while I bought it :)
