When my in-laws were visiting, my mother-in-law and I checked out a local consignment shop and I found a piece of furniture that’s been on my wish list for a few weeks – a buffet. I have been wanting one for my office, but have come up empty on craigslist and at Gold Rush Days. The second I spotted this piece, I knew it was perfect…
I like the style of it, the graining…and those legs! I am totally a “leg girl” when it comes to furniture.
I liked it so much, in fact, that I had to debate where to put it, because it would look great in at least three rooms. It found a home in a office, for now.
The room still needs to be painted, but I’ve been using that as an excuse to not hang pictures or get rooms organized. The fact is that it’s going to take me a while to get to all of the painting that I want to do in this house, so I’m going to work on rooms and get them as done as I can. When I’m ready to paint, I’ll just take the pictures down. No biggie.
I am not sure what color I want to use on these walls, yet. A part of me just wants it to be clean and simple, like a pale blue/gray or off white, but another part of me wants to go dramatic with a rich green, deep gray, or a navy.
(As an aside, the front door is on the other side of this wall, so as the door opens and closes, it shifts the pictures. After I paint, I’ll use a little sticky-tack at the bottom corners to hold them in place.)
So… decisions, decisions…
