Can I just say how much I am loving these new Ikea bookshelves? They hold so much more stuff on them than the old ones, and I’m able to find homes for all the random things that have hung around with no place to go. We also purged quite a few big pieces this weekend and dropped them off at Value Village. The living room is now less cluttered and we actually have a decent spot to put the Christmas tree. You know you live in a small place when you have to get rid of an arm-chair to have a spot to put the tree;)
I have a headache the moment and wish that I could just go and crawl in to bed, but I promised that I would get the last shelf built today and since we were out all day it looks like it is my late night project. I think after 4 years this apartment is finally coming together, and now all I need is to get it all painted white so that is looks a little more spacious. The people before us painted the wall tan and the heating ducts dark brown so it looks really dark in here. I have no idea why they thought it was a good idea to paint something that you DON’T want to draw attention to such a dark colour.
*I bought that oversized black cardigan from Zara but returned it because it has wool and mohair in it and it is itchy. After I returned it I received a few messages on Instagram telling me how I could soften it to get rid of the itchiness so I am tempted to reorder it because it was exactly the style of cardigan on my wishlist. Do any of you have a tried and true way to soften up itchy sweaters?
