No, not for the blog. That’s too advanced for us. Well, just for me. Mr. O is a tech whiz.
The new look is for our dining-room-we-use-as-an-office and living room, thanks to Phase 1 of furniture ballet.
So now the not-for-dining-room holds our desks, office accoutrement, two bookcases, a reading area (futon + cedar-chest-that-stores-clothes-and-looks-like-coffee-table):
Please note, if you will, the fabulous coasters that my sister J made us as a wedding/Christmas gift. I’ll post another picture of them up close soon — they are beautiful. And she made them!
Moving the futon freed up quite a lot of room in the living room, which will, sooner than we think, be filled by an invention called a “pack and play” — a small sized prison, complete with changing area and completely, if not easily, portable crib, for babyfolk. Huzzah! (Thanks to Mom, J, and C for this inestimable treasure! We won’t have to go all the way to the nursery to change diapers!)
Daisy has also been moved to a more prominent position, and we’ve managed to fit even more bookcases in too:
Now we shall take a break from furniture machinations, at least until we can bring ourselves to face the daunting new parent crib-building challenge.
We suspect that it will be back to mostly food-oriented posts soon, Dear Readers.
