Exposure of televisions, that is. (Or exposure of the fireplace... isn't this little screen cute? I got it recently at an Antique Mall). But, I digress. The television thing... it has bugged me for years, I've always used an armoire. My husband isn't wild about having the armoire in our current living room because
Well, I love my armoire, and he said I could have it in my workshop downstairs instead
Hmmm, the wheels started turning... "I DID just buy those cute vintage chicken coops from Joy" I thought to myself. She had called me the day before telling me that she had them in her truck and would bring them right over to me! (How is THAT for great customer service)?! "Well, he is home today," I said. (Which is code for Omigosh! No, don't do that, he took the day off today and doesn't know yet that I have bought them). Don't you love your friends who know your "code" language? (Love you Joy)! I was thinking about telling him, just couldn't figure out how to explain to him that I planned to "decorate" our home with 2 very old chicken coops (complete with old feathers)... (Remember however, they are painted a very light chippy aqua)! I mean seriously, how could I pass them up? I had been looking for some for over a decade!
The DH has pretty much given up trying to have any input into decor decisions. He says that he always likes how it turns out anyway, so why worry? But chicken coops! Did I ever mention that he is prone to allergies of all sorts and that he likes a very clean house? I finally got up the nerve and spilled it to him. He said, "sure, good idea!" (I promise you, he really said that)! He jumped in the truck and headed over to Joy's to get them. No problem! He even came home and cleaned them before he brought them in the house. (Well, you know he would)!
So even though it has taken me months to show you and to admit that my television is exposed to the world... here it is in all it's gargantuan glory. (It isn't yet properly fixed up with cute things right now, because I'm transitioning to Holiday).
I know, I know but Hey Debbie, finally here are my coops! I'm just getting the nerve to show them! (Debbie has a coop too)! I'll get her to share a picture with us. She's still in Denver, and I'm not, so I haven't even seen hers yet. I bet it is gorge!! (Maybe not as gorgeous as aqua, but very cool, nonetheless)!
What's that you ask? Where are the photos of the workroom with the armoire in it? People! You know I have a torn rotator cuff in my shoulder! I'm far too delicate to put things in tubs, label them and put them on shelves.... as you might imagine. (Ouch)! (Besides, most of you don't know that I have been "talking" about doing this project ad nauseum for years). Ok, I admit it, it's still a mess. I'm making a list of volunteer organizers/helpers, so you just let me know and I'll sign ya right up)! Darn, let this
