That is how long I have spent in the world of boxes, bubble wrap and packing tape. Somehow we have managed to unpack every last box – a true feat considering that the last time we moved it took my mother coming to visit, over a year after we moved, for me to finish unpacking the last few boxes. Yet every box is empty. Save the one in the closet with the random old computer bits and pieces that we looked at and went “this box is perfect for storage!”, and then promptly shoved into the closet.
Since I shared my painting experiences, I thought that perhaps I’d also share the completely finished products
The Red Wall
I am still absolutely in love with this wall. In fact, this room has easily become my favorite room. It really did turn out very well, I think. I’m still debating if I want to put something on the top of that cabinet or not, as I’m not entirely certain if it will detract or clutter the picture. (Please forgive the grainy picture – iPhone + dark room doesn’t mesh well, and a new digital camera is still on my “wish list”.)
The Yellow Wall
This wall has grown on me quite a bit now that the room is filled with our office equipment. I am quite pleased with it, my only gripe are the ugly wires coming down the wall where we mounted the television. I intend to put some sort of decorative foliage there – if I could only find something that I like.
We did search a bit for a table, and opted to nab one at Ikea. You see, having our office in what was officially our “dining room” and eating at our computers for the past four years left some doubts about our ability to sit down and enjoy dinner properly. As such, we opted for a more economical option to see if we will make use of it (as something other than a catch all) before “upgrading” to something a little fancier. I’m fairly pleased with how it turned out, and I’m proud to say that we had our first meal at said table this evening!
That will conclude Beru’s version of whatever the TLC home decoration show du jour currently is – and we will now be returning back to WoW ;)
On that front…I captured some video of our last heroic Al’Akir kill that I am working on putting together for a video guide. Sadly, I didn’t have any clutch cat sprint squall line dodging this go, but I’ll be sure to add in some tips and tricks in the commentary!
