Holidaze November 18, 2011

Just when I thought it was safe to go shopping for some pumpkin pie fixin’s, I had to face the music…

For the last few days, Chez Chic has been busy as a beehive, full of worker’s doing some minor rehab and more, hoping to get done before the holidays hit.

THIS is my solution to not having anywhere to put anything!

I ran out of space in Bedroom #1, which is filled with all the living room and dining room furniture, so I filled the BathTub! Crazy, huh!?~

First I put a couple of blankets/quilts to line it, then I put two tables, two fans, one lamp, about 20 framed pictures, four cases, my button box and a big ole plant stand.

I love it (especially the table pyramid)! But I can’t wait until this is over. My neighbors went out-of-town when they did this; I’m thinking I should’ve done that too. Thank god for knitting or I’d be totally out of my mind! :)

    I have some wood floors that need refinishing but I can’t imagine where I’d put 3 bedrooms, closets included, and a dining room worth of stuff while it’s being done. It simply exceeds my imagination and so I wait for inspiration.

    Woo Hoo! That would be me!

    The contractor said sometimes people rent a big container and park it outside their house and move the stuff outside there. Or, a rental truck. But here in Chicago, it would probably be towed on Street Cleaning day in my hood (Tues). ;p

    One of my couches is parked sideways across the kitchen counter that divides the great room from the kitchen. Chairs are stacked on the counters, too.

    (And, YAY, Helen!!)
