Day 24-25

4 02 2009

I’ve spent the past 2 nights unpacking and organizing.  While it seemed I had managed to get alot done there is still so much to do.

Like the bedroom…


Ugh, those cords, and tv setup is driving me nuts.  I’d planned on purchasing a bed now it looks like we need not only a bed but a new dresser, a tv stand of some kind and I want a least one nice end table that will fit. 

I did figure out the window covering situation.  I  purchased blackout drapes to put on tension rods underneath the shade.  It looks pretty good I think…


Then there’s the office – what a mess…


And the tv/entertainment center – also a mess…


I need more plants- these are the only ones I have managed not to kill…


And the stove – ugh that stove is ugly (and gross)…


I wish I’d taken a before I cleaned it picture.  It took 3 kinds of cleaning (one with bleach), over 30 minutes, a scrub sponge, a toothbrush and a putty knife to scrape off the cooked on grease under the lid.  I haven’t even attempted the inside – I’d like to throw in in the dumpster and buy a new one!!  Cabinets are nice though, huh?  There is so much cabinet space it’s great!!

And finally there’s the bathroom…


The cabinet for the sink sticks out like a sore thumb, it’s an ugly color that matches nothing.  I’ve read about staining without doing on the work of sanding…I hope it works as good as some have claimed.  I want it to be closer to the color of the wall cabinet I will be purchasing.  Something like one of these…

If the bathroom cabinet is, indeed, wood, the stain might take even without sanding. However, if it’s veneer, you might be better off just buying a new vanity.
