A Busy Weekend

Monday, July 17, 2017

This weekend was jam packed! We've got so little time left until we move in, and so much still left to do, so we're trying to accomplish as much as we can each day. First on our agenda was to replace some of our larger furniture (which we have been selling off all week) with more compact versions. We've already found a more compact sofa, a coffee table with hidden storage, and several other pieces are on their way from Wayfair. We still needed a smaller bed for Logan to replace his loft bed with stairs, a narrower but slightly taller dresser for our bedroom, a mirrored medicine cabinet, a large mirror to hang on the bedroom wall, and a few other things.
For compact furniture on a budget, it's hard to beat IKEA, so off we went to the home of flat-pack Swedish furnishings for the second weekend in a row.

As soon as we hit the interstate, rain hit us. Being a lovely sunny day, we hadn't thought to pack a tarp and our boxes were soaked. Flat-pack furniture sitting in wet boxes for the next week and a half sounded like a recipe for disaster, so Justin and I stayed up half the night putting together a Hemnes dresser, a twin bed for Logan, and a mirrored medicine cabinet. I can conservatively estimate that we put this dresser together twice, with all the parts we had to take apart and re-do. It was an adventure, to be sure!

Today I ran the medicine cabinet by the new house to have it installed, and I got to check out the progress. It's coming together quickly now!

This is the inside of our bedroom.

If you look closely in this last photo you can see our tile selection in the back! I love the vintage style hexagons. They remind me of my Mema's house when I was a child.
This flooring should be going in soon, and the clock is ticking down to moving day! I'll be headed back over on Thursday to check on the progress. Hopefully my new medicine cabinet will be up by then and I can share a photo, since I forgot to take one when I dropped it off today.
