TYPICAL DAYS AT THE BLH

You have to be kidding.  I have been in the house too long.....

First, I get this  idiotic  idea to move around some furniture.  Bad idea...Ended up putting it all back..   A lost day!
The next day,  I get the urge to move MIRRORS....all of which led to a massive disaster area here for three days. 

WHY???

?????
 JUST ME

MC has been working on a project for a long, long time.  No big thing, just taking forever.  It has been in the garage for over a month,  and BTW he has touch up painting and some finishing detailing to go.   

We have a  faux marble useless "seat" attached to a  3/4 wall separating the shower from the tub.    Some of you are familiar with these wonderful "features" !  

 "They" are described as seating

Real world,  there is no way anyone can "SIT" on them to perform any task or hygiene routine !!!!  I have tried for years!  Forget it!  No room to sit,  position oneself, or  place necessary items, etc.

  We decided MC could construct a shelf unit to rest on this "space".  He's becoming a Pro at shelf units, so why not another one?  This one  would actually have a purpose and improve it's appearance.

   We carried it in from the garage to make sure it fit!  Can't imagine what would have happened if it hadn't?  It will be finished "In Place"!  There is no way we are going to lug that  back into the garage.


There was a picture where it now sits,  and of course that had to be moved!  Thus the beginning of... "What in the world are we doing?

Another factor contributed to the movement! I was reading about a home and the designer mentioned how fantastic a  family Ceremonial Dress looked in the home's Foyer.    
WOW!
Where I have seen that before?
..... Except many moons ago it was moved out of our Foyer.

I thought maybe I should  get our "Ceremonial" Christening Dress  back,  front and center!
 For months it has been out of the main area of the house.   Actually as things  progressed, I found an even better place to "display" it,  other than the Foyer......that's later.... Really out of the box!

A few  days ago,  I actually thought I had a plan where each piece would go!  Somehow that "plan" got lost?

 Between hair appointments, which we all know, are of the HIGHEST PRIORITY, meetings, etc. I finally think we are finished ....for now.... 

The mirrors and paintings  have moved at least two or three times......The Morning Test Thing!  Oh boy do we need to fill in holes,  and touch up some paint!

Poor MC, he has been up and down step stools with nails, levelers and hammers!





As of this moment .......

The leather framed round mirror (fondly referred to as the "Spare Tire" ) is  over the mirrored Lady's Desk in the Foyer.
The Zinc table was moved to the TERRACE....So far so Good



Moved the black framed mirror that was in the Foyer and put it over our black painted Hope Chest.   They look like a set, but in reality refinished 20 years apart!
Plan B or C or whatever is still good!





WOW THIS PICTURE NOT MOVED!

 Erica's Bow fabric piece over M. Bed......Looking good...real good!



 Moved the large gold framed mirror that was over the Hope Chest, into the bedroom over the glass and iron console table, again although they look alike,  they are completely separate items bought and refinished in different years........we are still on a roll.....


 And Finally

OUR CEREMONIAL CHRISTENING DRESS


 The Dress is now the focal point of the room!  The first thing you see when entering.  The View , not disturbed....still there!!!


 
PS....MC painted the frame black.....big difference!


When the wall unit in our bath is  finished, I will have the pleasure to pretty it up!

Till "WHATEVER MOVES NEXT/"
