Slowly but surely, we’re carting up and carting down, stacks and stacks and boxes and boxes of books. Slowly but surely the shelves are getting painted, installed, filled, refilled, shifted up, shifted down. We’re not there yet, but we’re inching closer.
Tonight I started on the cabinet doors that will cover the bottom four “boxes”, two on the right and two on the left of the pretend fireplace. The girls have been stocking those cabinets already. In case you couldn’t tell, duplo blocks and dress up clothes are among their contents. I’ve been unearthing all of the framed items that were boxed up two years ago, and I’m hanging them on the picture rail (randomly for now) to pull all the kinks out of the wires – that’s why it’s looking a little crowded in there right now. We still have some grommets to drill in the countertop so the cords are all hidden. But we’re inching along.
Beware the upcoming posts highlighting some of the things we’re finding along the way!
For now, here are a few of my favorite “stills” from the animation above.
