deciding on a new sofa


I've been mulling over how to re-do our living room for while now. With the new year, it's high time to pull some triggers.  I've narrowed my search down to a few top candidates, and I'll be honest:  I need some backup on this one.  Help!

Here are the contenders:

Happy New Year, friends!  How was your holiday?  Were you home or away?  We had a full house here with David's family visiting from Canada.  It was a great Christmas for us, and I wanted to share a bit of it before we're off to new projects for the year.

I promised pretty things a while back. Here we go!

We're getting ready for a very exciting Christmas:  hosting David's family at our house over the holidays.  It's five people more than we're used to, but I am thrilled to have our house a-buzz with festive fun and activity this year.  To make room for everyone, the hobby room is now a guest bedroom.

It's been a bit quiet around here, since we've had a tough couple of weeks, sad and frustrating at the same time.  I've been coping by working on the house, tuning things up here and there, aggressively painting at times, and purging junk.  And after a nice weekend visiting with friends, my mind and heart are feeling much more settled now as compared to last week.

So:  closet doors!  (The unofficial, never-ending theme of this blog.)

As part of having our house painted, all of our original closet doors got a fresh coat of paint ... along with their original slider hardware (oops).  The painted sliders were sticking in their wooden tracks, making the doors nearly impossible to slide.  The wooden track-and-slider combo is an original Eichler feature and, sadly, one that is not terribly durable.  After a few weeks of frustration, we decided to make things right.
