Somewhere along the way I goofed up a measurement and it doesn't fit in the space for the bed. So I got to work making another one last weekend. It's much simpler and probably more suited to the house. And I can't regret making the upholstered bed because I learned a lot while I did it.
Measuring accurately is one of the lessons I learned. Let's hope it sticks.
The new bed sat for a week while I figured out what to use for a mattress. Once I figured that out I put the bedding on and proceeded to take pictures.
I also rearranged the living room a bit and put a sofa in there instead of two chairs. More comfortable for multiple visitors.
And I got the kitchen counters redone and a breakfast bar added.
I'm going to either find or, if I get really ambitious, make some stools to go under the breakfast bar.
And then of course, the house needed a Christmas tree.
It's just a cheap little tree from Joann's that I glued beads to so it would look festive. I'll make it a little tree skirt and some presents to go under it.
And the animals have already made themselves at home. Dwight is so excited he's practically bouncing. He'd better stay off the furniture.
Zoe is trying to have a nap but her daughter Kaylee is determined to practice pouncing.
She's young and enthusiastic.
I'm working on a floor lamp to go behind the bed and give it some light to read by. Nothing better than reading in a cozy bed. Hopefully it'll be done next week.
If I don't get to talk to all of you before then, I hope you have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah and the best New Year.
