I'm not a particularly high-needs kinda gal - I'm fine with old furniture, knowing that kids will destroy it sooner or later... I keep the house a comfortable level of messiness - a controlled chaos of sorts. One day I'll pay more attention to it all, but for now it just doesn't bother me...
B, on the other hand just discovered Craigslist. He bought his first computer not long ago, and now is discovering all it's wonders! Now that hes figured out all the great deals on craigslist, he's getting all *fancy* in our house! He had some gift money burning a hole in his pocket. First he bought this cute breakfast table - it fits perfectly in the kitchen and reminds me of the sweet table and bench we had in my childhood house. The benches even have underseat storage for homeschool books and art supplies - I love it!
Then, he started clearing out the living room of a sagging sleeper sofa I picked up from Freecycle several years ago, and a well-loved, hand-me-down rocking chair. He then freshened up some of the paint:
And found a great deal on a furniture set and table set - look who's fancy now!
Good thing B likes doing this sort of thing - I'm terrible at picking out furniture and arranging it. Now on to the other million projects on the list...
