Finished Floors!

So they've been done for quite a while, but I finally sat down & went through some of the photos I took. Here they are!

I'm thrilled with how they came out as well as the little tweaks I made here & there in the decor... more on those later! Lesson learned: refinishing floors = SO messy, but SO worth it!

A Perfect Red Trash Can

Isn't it lovely? It's the red Round Retro Step Can from simplehuman. I was a little anxious about ordering it sight unseen, but it's perfect! A beautiful candy-apple red, smooth & quiet pedal/lid action, and a very spiffy inner tub/bag getup. It's a lot like my old trash can (which broke), but it's noticeably higher quality & a lot more elegantly designed. It's a little pricey at $99, but comparing it with my previous trash bins (and the fact that it's in a high-profile location), it's completely worth it. Functional, efficient, and beautiful... plus a 10 year warranty!

The Forest Moon of Endor

Jesse received not one but two Star Wars themed gifts for his thirtieth birthday (one being this print, and the other a mug). I'm all for it if they look as good in the living room as this print does!
