We started the weekend with a ridiculous amount of Ikea boxes stacked in the studio. It was pretty comical for a while, blowing through box after box and hacking apart the pieces so they fit us, rather than the intentional mold. By mid-afternoon Sunday, we became a bit delirious (rightfully so!) and cracked had-to-be-there jokes. As we hauled 50 pounds of cardboard boxes to the recycling bin, I would say, hey, man, what’d ya get at Ikea?, and Scott would reply, all the things!
Eh, you had to be there.
We made mind-boggling progress, even when we hit a few road blocks along the way. And just this morning, I purchased three yards of champagne colored Oh Joy! wallpaper:
Did you know you could buy by the yard? Only a few select patterns, but it’ll be perfect for our application, as a whole roll (although awesome!) would have been unnecessary. Any guesses on where it’ll go?
How was your weekend?
Can’t wait to see the studio’s progress! Looks like Jack was being a good helper. :) I love the wallpaper although after dealing with trying to take down this horrible wallpaper in our bathroom I’m not sure I would ever put any up again!
dog-head-down-ears-forward-sniffy-face is just (in my opinion) the cutest dog face available.
also: congrats on the underway studio!
I love how Jack is helping, and I can’t wait to see how your studio turns out! Today, Kevin is trying to construct a contraption to go over Zoe’s crate because she insists on sitting on it. We think that she’s going to break it if this continues. We’ll keep you posted on that one… it will be interesting.
Lauren, I think our wallpaper obsession (in the hallway and now in the studio!) may come back to bite us one day. I can just imagine a future home and spending months taking down ugly paper… we’ll deal with that when/if it happens!
Emily, thank you!
Katharine, Jack helped the ENTIRE weekend. I could have created an entire gallery of inappropriate-Jack-spots. He’d just hang on our lap and lick our ears in the middle of toggle bolt installs.
Katharine- Dont know if you’ve seen our posts on the matter, but we keep Jack and the kitties off of the furniture while we’re not around by putting “spike side up” office chair mats on the couches. It’s worked out well. Food for thought!
I am very intrigued with the wallpaper. This is something I’ve always wanted to do…but have always been afraid of how hard it is to put up. Anxiously watching your progress…
Happy to see you finally have your project up and running! We’re planning to revamp our teeny-tiny second bedroom into a music practice room for my boyfriend later this month (he’s a drummer) and this is great small-space insipriation.
Yay! Can’t wait to see the finished product. Good luck!
