progress so far

Things are slowly, slowly coming together here. They were kind of on a standstill as I had to leave Montreal for two weeks to finish up school and take a Canadian lifeguarding course. But now I'm back and here to stay!

Onto the goodies... Just before I left we had gotten some new furniture but I hadn't had time to take photos, so!

Still on the hunt for that perfect couch. We found a few strong contenders but they were a bit out of our price range, which has been pretty disappointing. This is our fabulous coffee table that we're pretty excited about. The side facing the chairs has a drawer for storing remotes and all that.

Our bathroom has made a pretty dramatic transformation. We ordered the etagere from Target and snuck it across the border, shhh! I brought the shower curtain from home and I absolutely adore it but Y. thinks it's awful and way too girly. I'm still fighting to keep it up!

And the bedroom. The more I look at those curtains the more I dislike them. I think the loops at the top cheapen it. I'd like to find something with grommets and maybe a fun print too. Draperies are, however, quite expensive! :( Still missing a duvet cover, bedside tables, wall paint, and a mirror above the dresser. Recently I've been intrigued by the idea of bamboo night tables like this one flanking the bed, but I'm not sure if it would work with the clean lines of the bed frame, and it seems they're hard to find. We shall see!

And finally, the dining room. We are missing some chairs as they are currently filling in for our couch. They do not make the most comfortable seating, especially after watching a movie! It seems we've decided on a pale yellow for the walls here with a white base starting from the window sill. I'd like to get a strong window treatment to really add some interest into this tiny dining room.

That's it for now! Tomorrow I'm off to the flea markets to see if I can't find any cute little tables or accent chairs. Wish me luck!
