First off, we took down the big flat builder's mirror in the powder room and replaced it with an oval mirror we picked up at a used furniture store. Sorry, but I forgot to take a picture. It doesn't really matter though, because the powder room still needs to be painted.
I didn't want to just toss the old mirror, so I put it on top of a cabinet we have. It's too big, but I like the mirrored-top business. From the little research I've done, it looks like one can cut mirror at home if one has a glass cutter and a straight edge. I may just tackle that, so stay tuned.
In other news, we got the couch! The living room is definitely looking better:
I had the bright idea of renting a U-Haul van instead of paying the $120.00 (I know!) the furniture store wanted for delivery. It all worked out in the end, but it was a certain amount of hassle, and it ended up costing about $75 bucks. That's still better than $120, but I think I could have found some random dude on Craigslist with a truck who would have done it for less.
I have a lead on dining room furniture. Stay tuned!
Didn't get to go thrifting this week, but a friend and I went to the outlets in Lancaster, PA. Nothing much there, but through a series of events, we found ourselves at a restaurant supply store.
Guys, guys. If you ever go by a restaurant supply store, go in. Seriously, I could have done some major damage there. I mean, did you know you could have your very own nacho cheese pump, just like they have in the movie theater?
In your own home!!
I showed restraint, and only bought two baking sheets (they call them bun pans, I think):
They're 13 X 18 and super heavy aluminum. The price? $3.49 each. Can you believe it? They'll easily outlast anything you can get at regular retail, and for about 1/4 the price. If anyone wants to know the name of the store, I'll try to find it. I know they have a website as well and they don't mind at all selling to just regular people.
That's all for now. More later as events warrant!
