Well, today has been a busy day. I'm tired and probably going to head to bed very soon.
My sister, Heather, and I met this morning to print a couple of family tree books and get those shipped off. Went by the post office to send the two to Germany and FedEx to send the one to California. Lunch at Chick-fil-A. Then, off to IKEA to purchase some new furniture for me (replacing pieces that have seen their share of life)!!
We explored the store a little bit - for Heather to get the IKEA experience. Then headed down to pick up the boxes for my stuff. Between the two of us, we loaded 4 awkward, heavy boxes into Heather's new Honda Pilot and headed home.
Here's a photo of my new Bonde bookcase (it is in my dining room) -- this photo doesn't do it justice -- the piece is 7 feet tall!!!
Lots of great spaces for storage. I'm going to live with it a little while and decide if I want to add any drawers or doors. Definitely thinking I'm going to get one door for sure. It is awfully nice to be able to hide things away when people come over.
Now, on to construction project #2 - the Hedalen Wardrobe for my guest room/office. It is a much more complicated piece than I was expecting. Just look at all the screws, nails, etc:
I've got all the pieces laid out and all the hardware accounted for, but I think I'm gonna wait until tomorrow to put it together - I'm just worn out and don't want to mess something up!
So, off I go now, to make up my bed with clean sheets and go to sleep.
