Progress



Yes, I finally feel as though I am making progress on the inside of the house.

It’s still the mundane grunt-work, but progress still.

Moving one thing out of one room to make room for another thing. Swapping furniture from room to room. Making closet space for other stuff. Boxing up still other stuff. Going through yet other boxes.

This is why I have not been blogging. It’s the boring part!

I’ve gotten most of it figured out, but not all of it. Where to put my 1950’s T.V. set? I was hoping to turn one of the two smaller bedrooms into an “entertainment room”, but I don’t think I can, at first. One of the bedrooms has a place where the rooftop T.V. antenna came through a hole in the wall, so I know a T.V. was in there. Or was supposed to. Not sure they had more than one T.V. in the 1950’s, but it’s there.

Not my first choice, but because I have so much vintage Asian items, I am decorating one of the small bedrooms with Asian. I put the vintage 1950’s chest of drawers in the closet. I didn’t realize I have 3 of those chests, but they fit perfectly, one in each bedroom closet. Then a small mid-century set of shelves under the smaller window.

It has a modern corner computer desk in there which I will have to use as it has room for printer and scanner, but will cover the desk with vintage textile.
