We went to lunch and then stopped by the house. I had wanted some photos of the damaged floors and other things (I included in yesterday’s post). I guess I had forgotten to snap a photo the other day. Maybe I was still in shock?
Above: Aside from an unsatisfactory paint job on the front door, we also found several dents. The builder filled the dents with some sort of Bondo. I hope it comes out nice looking, otherwise Jim has already warned them that we’ll be requesting a new door.
Above: I never took a photo of this wall when it was extremely crooked. We never noticed it until we had a wood line to compare it with. The builder corrected the wall’s angle and now it’s awaiting moldings.
We then began a day full of disappointing furniture shopping. Ashley Home Furnishing, Rooms To Go, Haverty’s, Furniture Row, and Value City Furniture (American Signature). We’re looking for several things. Some we’ll get right away and others we’ll have to save for.
Master bedroom furniture: I’m just tired of this high lacquered, plastic handled furniture.
Living room furniture: In our previous house, we had a traditional/formal living room and a modern silver/red family room with completely different styles. In this new house, we have one living room and we’d like it to utilize the formal pieces we have. It’s difficult to find comfortable, reclining, traditional pieces. Most reclining pieces we’ve found are either family-room-ish or terrible uncomfortable.
Dinette furniture: We need a new style, more traditional and we’d like a smaller round table with a pedestal base so when needed, we can use it for cards/games. This is our current set:
I think we’re out of furniture stores. It’s sad.
