It’s a strange fact of my adult life that many of my decorating “fits” coincide with the bi-annual Large Item Pickup sponsored by our city.
Ever since we received the notice in August that October 15th would be the date of this year’s pickup, the plans have been churning in my head.
Good-bye to the 12-year-old sleeper sofa that had faded from striking red to an ugly pinkish hue.
The Boy came home for Fall break and assisted in building and spray painting to my specifications.
The final result: One weekend of much-needed distraction from political ugliness, and one satisfyingly updated living room.
