We custom made some handles for the controversial bookcase doors of internet doom.

Whatever. I’m in love with them…

They are still NOT finished. So pretty please hold off on telling me how bad they look for a little while longer. I’ll finish them up…a little paint, a little stain…and a whole brand new open shelving unit on the opposite wall…

Iggy enjoys the new doors and he’s super cute and has excellent taste.

Oh, and I got my butterfly chair covers off ebay. They were WAY WAY WAY too small. Like weirdly tiny, even though the measurements in the description should have fit. The hunt continues as they get returned.

Over easy

My big yellow lamp from ebay arrived. And it is BIG.

It needs a little more work than inferred on the ebay listing, which is annoying and seems to keep happening to me. The last three things I’ve gotten have arrived filthy, not well packed and way more damaged than described. Makes me want to stop shopping ebay.

For $9.99 and $25.81 shipping its not too bad and makes a BIG statement. Although it probably does need another $10 in new wiring and bits.

I didn’t really think too far ahead about where this big bad boy would actually go.

Hmmmm. My design plan with the house so far seems to be:

-Buy crap I like.
-Figure it out later.

Which would probably horrify any real interior designer.

I really dig this lamp and imagine it will end up swagged on the covered patio over the “dining table” that is planned but not actually constructed. Yup, this patio which still looks just like that pic taken in June. Ugh.

The living room and I have been in a bit of a funk lately. So lets imagine the living room (and my life) updated with some fantasy disposable income.

This is how we update the living room, son. I make it rain decor goodies.

I think it all would look rad with the big gray couch and round coffee table. Now if I just had like $50,000 available to drop the living room…

But seriously, I am totally on the hunt for some sleek-ass matching vintage leather chairs. Safari, Bachelor, Baughman, whatever or whoever it doesn’t mater as long as its a delicious broken in caramel leather. The living room is requiring symmetry.

…or yellow could be nice.
