Tuesday's List: House Projects

I'm linking up to Love From Texas to share a list of house projects. Never mind the fact that it isn't actually Tuesday! I'll try and get on track next week! :)

I've told y'all (multiple times, I'm sure) that I'm decorating fairly lightly in this house because our lease is up in September and we'll (hopefully!) be buying something at that point. So it just doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and money on furniture/decorations that may or may not "go" in the next house.

But we have done a few things (like the new bed and guest room), and I'm hoping to get a few other things accomplished while we're here. :)

{Dining Room Table}

We're using Micah's grandpa's table and chairs for right now, and I'm so thankful to have them, but eventually I want to get something that's a little more our style. I'm in love with this table from Pottery Barn:

It's a little rustic, but still gorgeous. I'm not in love with the chairs, and I'm not exactly sure what I want, but I'll resist the urge to put the cart before the horse: I'll focus on getting the table first.

{Office Furniture}

Right now, we're using my Ikea desk from law school, and it serves our purposes just fine, given that our "office" is actually one of the spare bedrooms and no one ever sees it anyway. But in our next house, I'd like to have some decent-looking furniture to put in a study.

Ideally, the room would have floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a big comfy chair in it, as well, but that's probably wishful thinking. :)

{Master Bedroom Artwork}

Now that I've got a color scheme for the master bedroom (hallelujah!), I'd like to eventually get a piece of artwork for the room. I don't know precisely what "style" I'm looking for, but I'm going to keep my eye out for something with marigolds and grassy greens that isn't too modern-looking. Or maybe I'll do something with words, like this:

Who knows, though. Most weeks, I'm feeling good just to get the house cleaned and picked up - I'm not going to put too much pressure on myself to finish decorating while we live here. But when we move next time (hopefully the last time for a good, long while!), it's ON! :)

Thanks, Jen! I love it, too! Hopefully I can find some chairs to match! :)
