Because it’s really more of a Cape Cod than a cabin, you know. But I am asking for you all to vote on something again.
First, however, I should tell you that after much shopping (both online and in furniture stores) we decided to go with choice #2:
Better picture of it, no? Honestly, I was leaning this way before I even asked you all to vote, so it was kind of nice to see so many votes for this set. I felt validated. *sniff* Really, the deciding factor for me on this one was the big chair and a half with storage ottoman. I’ve been wanting those forever and ever.
The scary part was that I couldn’t see it anywhere in person. Yes, I ordered furniture online! Yikes! Who does that???? Me, apparently. I was able to research the manufacturer a bit, and I did find out that Costco carries this same set (should I be admitting that? Is it uncool to buy Costco furniture? I don’t know), so in the end I felt comfortable enough with ordering it from that online retailer that ships everything for $2.95. I’ll let you know how it turns out in 1-6 weeks.
Now, here is my next dilemma: The Bed.
A few months ago I decided I wanted this bed:
Then I changed my mind and decided I wanted this one:
Then I thought, no, I like the first one better. But? I also like this one:
“What about the flowers???” I asked.
“They don’t bother me,” he said.
Okey dokey then.
So which bed do you like? One, two or three? I must say I am now thinking that two is my least fave, but it’s kind of a toss up between the others. And if you really have nothing else to do right now, head on over to the Claudio Rayes online catalog and let me know if there is one you like even more than these three. Because honestly? There are a couple more I could have thrown into the voting pool.
Once this decision is made, all that’s left is to have my grandmother’s chairs reupholstered and (someday down the road) have the antique sofa reupholstered, and then I’m done with furniture. Done, done, done!
In the meantime, while I’m trying to sort out all of these life altering decisions, I think I’m going to start painting my living room. And then my bedroom. And then my dining room.
And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt is offended that no green paint has been selected for any of these projects.
PS to my new friend from Hershey – Is the theme park still there, or just the factory? It would be a fun place to take the kids if they could eat chocolate and ride roller coasters. Though that could make for some really gross . . . clean up.
