being still amidst chaos

by Travelingmama on September 10, 2010

The last week has been a bit chaotic.  It took five million trips to IKEA to finally get our closet and bookshelf right (and yes, I am only mildly exaggerating) but we have also found quiet moments like these when we are filled with unending gratitude for our new place.  It is starting to feel like home a little more every day.  We are looking forward to a weekend full of projects around our flat, but the biggest is going to be painting.  Although it KILLS us to paint over someone else’s art, our land lords have assured us that they are okay with it.  If only I could transport these walls straight to my mom’s master bedroom which is kind of a shrine to all things Greek… we Greeks tend to be very proud of our heritage, you know!  But since that is not possible, we will say a little prayer and bid these walls farewell…

We thought you all might enjoy a glimpse of our IKEA mess.  Thankfully the boxes are gone and in their place are some pretty shelves that we will share with you just as soon as we finish painting.  So, what about you?  What do you have planned for the weekend?  Anyone want to pop over for a painting party?  We’ve been known to repay with a tex-mex feast!

I love seeing your IKEA boxes :) We’re going to be replacing most of our furniture with similar boxes in November when we move to WA! Sorry you had to make so many trips! I’m certain your nerves were shot after all of that, but the pretty paint should make you happy!!!!

Your place is going to be amazing, Tina! It’ll definitely be worth every trip you had to make to IKEA. :)

Oh I know just how you feel! We’re also moving right now to a bigger place (in Odense, Denmark) and have also been painting, painting and painting. And we’ve also been too IKEA several times – and we’re not even close to being done yet. So I feel your pain! 😉

Thank you for your valuable information
varieties like Chenille tapestries, European tapestries, Italian tapestries, Belgian tapestries, Medieval tapestries, usually look great in bath decor as well as those with scenic paintings thanks.
