How was your long weekend? God I love how many holidays Massachusetts has! Sorry Richmonders!
Over the long weekend, Jared and I visited our new home (as you saw here) and visited furniture stores and showrooms galore!
IKEA was having a President’s Day Sale which basically meant the store was packed with people and 2 tables and frozen yogurt was on sale. So stupid! But it was a valuable trip because we brought our contractor (aka Dad) and took a closer look at my kitchen cabinets. The 3D rendering allowed us to really figure out what we needed and we’ll be able to order it all online in March when IKEA is having an actual big sale- thanks to our inside source on that one Briggsy! Plus I fell in love with these dining room chairs below and got Jared all excited about IKEA’s closet organizational systems. Yes, we have a walk in. Jealous?
Jared spotted a tile showroom across the street so we popped in for some tile style! The Tile Shop was awesome. Before we even walked in the door, Jared spotted the kitchen back splash tile we’ve been searching for (see below). That was the easy one. Tile for the mudroom floor- not so much. We know we want slate and I’m sure I want texture but do we want flat dark color? Or something with color variations? Not sure. But the trip was a total success when Dad got a contractor’s account so we now have 25% off our purchases. Score!
A final stop at the Granite Shop made us feel a little racist. “Supreme White” was the only pick for me. I swear I’m not racist! It’s just a beautiful white granite with grey veins. Gorgeous. But the name is a little Hitler-esque. Don’t you think?
Anyways, the particulars are certainly coming together! So exciting!
