I love home decor stuff. But it’s not just regular ole stuff that floats my boat. I have an affinity for the unusual, and I love to use items for something other than their intended purpose. A cool jug or an old metal toy looks like a potential lamp to me.
And I love a good deal, so Craigslist is a winner for me. Check out my latest find. An antique child’s swivel desk chair. I am still stoked about it. I paid around $60 for it. I have no idea what its true value is, but I don’t care because the price was reasonable to me and I absolutely love it.
I am starting to work on Charlie Poo’s room. (Unfortunately, there was more nuggetry today, but I just can’t write about poo today. I choose to block it out and bask in my latest Craigslist find instead.)
Ahem, back to Charlie’s room. The walls are a pale gray called Sidewalk Gray. I actually found the color at Wal-Mart and took it to Pittsburgh paints for a color match. That’s been done for a while, but it’s hard to make progress due to lack of employment, hence fundage.
[Tax return enter stage right.] Now, I can attempt to make some progress. I love progress!
Soda Detox Update: No cheating yet. Made it to the one week mark. I totally want a soda. When I need a fix, I drink a little grape juice. And when that doesn’t work, I switch to wine…the other grape juice!
