I’ve got a lot of down time this weekend. My father-in-law’s surgery was bumped until Monday so we’re still in waiting mode. M’s spending a lot of time over at the hospital, and so I’ve had a few quiet evenings to myself. I’ve been digging into the model I built awhile back of our house – this time inserting various bookshelf ideas into the living room and creating a 3D version of my mood board. When I get a chance to finish them all I’ll post them like I did the laundry room options before. I went on a bit of a tangent last night – creating my own models of furniture that I like – making them the actual size, and in some cases actually downloading the fabrics and inserting those materials into the model. For a couple of hours I shifted things around, and tested out ways to get some coat and shoe storage as well. Since I’m light on the picture taking around here, I’m posting these snapshot sof the living room to tide you over. I need to build in the mantel but I’m pretty darn proud of the ripple fold curtains in a great Duralee fabric – whether or not these things actually show up in the room or not, I’m excited that I was actually able to build a little miniature version of them. Ideas on paper are cheap – might as well explore them there!
