Sunshine & I have been engaging in some retail therapy this week. The therapy is for the new house, not us.
Side note: that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
I ordered this nifty little gadget from zulily.
Because have you seen my laptop lately? Its downright disgusting. Also? Free shipping on items from the OXO sale.
As I was browsing their curtain sale, I noticed the “free shipping through midnight tonight” banner and decided that it was a good time to order the curtains for the front
Because those doors are fucking huge, and it’s going to take a lot of curtain to cover those 8′ tall beasts on hot summer days, and these are a lot of curtain.
Not long after I had ordered the curtains, Sunshine had an idea. One of our roof units has malfunctioned, and we’d rather not spend $700 on a replacement when we’re so close to the finish line with the house. Instead of waiting on Rude Ass to build a custom platform bed with storage, Sunshine thought it would be smart to buy a bed so that we can sleep in the much cooler house when the nights get warm enough to need a/c.
This isn’t ideal, because there’s not really any store-bought shit that can even come close to the quality and durability of what Rude Ass could build. It does, however, take one thing off of Rude Ass’s project list. And you know what that means…
If you guessed “change order”, you win a cardboard cookie.
I’ve chosen some inspiration pictures of some tables and nightstands to present to Rude Ass so I can have a custom built nightstand that also doubles as Mollie’s stairs to get on & off the bed. Because jumping is bad for dachshunds’ backs.
Its so exciting getting to pick finishing touches for the house. Every light switch & outlet cover plate, curtain, piece of furniture, towel, rug, and pillow (plus all the other stuff I’m not thinking of right now) is one more piece of the puzzle put into place.
