So I had these grand plans to go to Reno (our nearest city – an hour away) and visit appliance and tile stores, West Elm, Scandinavian Design and a bunch of cool shops. Spend the day, maybe sit down and have lunch and head home in the evening with a car full of goods.
But then I found out I had to bring the kids with me. So after 6 hours or navigating Reno, this is what I came home with.
This chair is, admittedly, awesome and cost only $1 at Goodwill (due to the fact that it is 5″ high) but it is a world away from what I had been hoping to purchase.
None of the appliances I wanted to see were in stock. The flipping grey tiles I have been searching had been discontinued in every flipping tile store in Nevada. I tried 9 tile shops and have now admitted defeat and will get marble tiles instead.
So, after the charade of a shopping day, I came home and just bought everything online. I hate buying online. I get no pleasure out of it but it seems to be the only way to go up here. Nothing has arrived as yet, so I can’t show pics, but I will show you the amazing progress on the ensuite.
And the shower…
And the fireplace.
I will also add in some pics of our old house which is the current cover story on InsideOut magazine.
