Progress report on house decorating

My bed arrived.... adjustable type... with those new Purple mattresses...  they really do take the stress off of pressure points.

My stools arrived.  Twice. They got lost in the mail the first time, then by the time they got found and got here they were mostly dented up.  Fortunately, there was one in excellent condition because the second set they sent had one dented stool, so between the two shipments, I got a set of 4 nice stools.

My custom cabinets for each side of the fireplace arrived.  I had they custom made and may have a bench/shoe storage thing made for the mudroom.  I am happy with them, but the jury is out on how country they look.... do they throw my style off too much?  I can have the doors changed.

Also, we are starting to put mirrors and artwork in place, not hung, just mostly in place.  I like the stuff here even better than at the old house because the walls are not as expansive for the sake of being dramatic, so everything looks better in this more intimate scale.

This is going to take a while

This is our second weekend in the new house, and well, all of our things are IN the house, for the most part... and the basement, and the garage.  I think I will post photos of the first floor every week as things pull together.

There are 3 main rooms on the first floor, plus my office (guest room) and his office.  I am seriously overwhelmed right now pulling all of this together.... and they will probably come together at the same time as they are kind of connected.  We shall see. 

What is going well?  The pantry is on point!  

more to see later.

Walked through

We did the walkthrough of the house this morning and outside of a couple minor inconveniences, everything is in tip-top shape.  I am very excited and I can't sleep... at all. For the second night in a row.  I'd better figure it out though because I am in for a solid week of non-stop work between the shows I am costuming and getting the house together, so I need my sleep.

I am going to do my darndest to blog the process of putting the house together.... but I tend to hyperfocus on what I am doing and forget.  But I will try.
