When dad was here in September he put up the cabinets (which were free because the cabinet people never came to pick them up even though I called them at least 5 times) for my entertainment center. It looked pretty blah. But now it is complete with shelves, a bead board back and a new, much larger TV.
Dad put some bead board under my bar in September. The bar has needed some bar stools for the past year. I've had a hard time finding some that I liked. Well I just happened to drive by a second hand store and lo and behold they had a set of 3 for 89 dollars. Total Steal! I was so happy that I backed into a yellow pole. And now those bar stools will cost me 589 when I get my little dent and new yellow paint color fixed. Grrr.
I would never have thought to put a lamp above the bed. Lauren's idea=brilliant.
