They came this morning and finished the master bedroom and now all the carpet is officially done. YAY! It has been a long couple of days! My house is still a complete disaster but we're putting it back together one room at a time. None of the bedrooms have been put back together, but the dining room and living room are looking pretty good.
So we have an old coffee table and end tables in the formal living room. We bought them when we built our first house. That makes them 12 years old. Twelve years ago they were really pretty. Now? Not so much. They have sunbleached really bad over the years so they're really not the same color they used to be. They don't match the living room furniture at all anymore and they look really terrible.
I have known that for a while and it's been on the back of my mind to replace them but it wasn't a huge priority and I've just never gotten around to it. But last night we put the living room furniture back in the room with the new carpet and now that the room looks nice and new the ugly coffee table is sticking out like a sore thumb. I seriously put it in there, took one look at it and we went to the furniture store and bought new tables, lol. We had to order them and they won't be here until tomorrow though. I wanted to take photos to show the new carpet but the old tables are still in there, so you're just going to have to ignore them and pretend that they're not ugly. I'll take new pictures when the new tables get here.
So here are some photos. I hate taking house photos because it's really tricky to get far enough back to get the whole room. I didn't do a great job. Just pretend. I'll probably take some better ones when everything is done. The dining room isn't decorated yet and I need to buy new curtains. Our master bedroom is also empty except for one sad chair, lol.
So again, just pretend. I tried. :)
