Monday, y’all, we’re gonna have a discussion. A discussion about all the things they don’t tell you about havin’ a baby. Man. This is #2 for me and I’m STILL in the dark about half of it. The past week has been extremely educational for me.
Today, simplicity. Things that make your life better.
• the white buffet thing I couldn’t get out of my head after shopping for a dresser… I had to return 2 days later to buy it. It doesn’t do anything special. It’s made with old, uneven wood and isn’t perfectly level. But, it holds all my fabric beautifully and looks great against the wood wall in the basement.
• the 3 full-size lockers I found more than a year ago… they’re on the wrong wall and are extremely dusty right now. But, they’ll hold coats and a vacuum and anything else we want to hide next to the basement door.
• the dresser we eventually found in a different shop… it serves double duty as a changing table. There’s also an old glass of milk, 2 dirty diapers, and a permission slip for Rylie on there. Whatever.
Obviously, I like re-using things. Furniture is expensive. I figure, why not find a piece that’s already got a story and add another chapter?
