I just couldn’t take the open bookcases anymore. I’m a retarded maniac – I know I know.

Carpenter Craig and The Boy got enlisted to install some simple finished plywood doors. How cute are they? Go awkward teamwork!

The doors still need some more finish work and I’m thinking they need some handles. Like so.


But with way less pink and more raw wood.

The other open shelving project in the living room is moving along slowly as well. Plus I think I figured out a place for the big yellow lamp…ch-ch-changes.

Stacking logs

I think I will fill up my fireplace with logs.

The dark fireplace in the living room seems to be a little empty and this appears to be a quick and easy solution to sophisticate up its gaping black maw. BTW, we do not use our fireplace. The Brick House is located in the California desert and not in like a cozy snowy mountain retreat…so fires are gross and make things smelly.

Anyone ever do this? Is it weird?

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.
