Interior Decorating with Ikea

January 16, 2011

We tackled a bunch of small projects this weekend.  Alexander ran cable from the attic, down the wall, into our TV.  This involved removing siding from the outside of the house to by-pass some 2×4 bracing that was in the way.  The attic is quite spacious, and about 6 ft tall at the center.  We may finish it eventually with plywood and drywall, for use as storage space.  Alex also removed the ugly steel mesh security door that came with our house.  We’ll install a porch screen door in its place, eventually.

We also went to Ikea today, to try our hand at some interior decorating.  We ended up buying a floor model sofa, at half-price, which cleaned up really nicely.   We also picked up a bunch of throw pillows, curtains, and curtain rods, which we’ll install this week.  I’m going to go ahead and invite criticism here….  as we have a lot to learn when it comes to home-decorating.
