We had a busy Memorial Day – first we made a trip out to Luling area to follow up with a post we found on craigslist. I’ve been lusting after the gorgeous furniture on this site for months and came across an ad for some lumber for sale on craigslist. We went to check it out and it was bargain too good to pass up. So, another project on Mike’s list of projects is to make these pieces of wood into tables, benches, etc for the house – and we may sell the extra furniture that he makes to help fund some of our remodel.
After loading the wood into Mike’s trucking, hauling it home, and then loading it into the shed up and down our hilly yard many times, we were exhausted but we managed to put in a few lights in the upstairs (see photos). It really is starting to look like a house again and I love our sputnik lamp in the dining room and our nelson bubble lamp in the sunken living, and our can lights look pretty cool too.
