Are you overwhelmed by the post-Thanksgiving Christmas onslaught? Does the thought of having a snowman in a rotating-propeller-inflatable-helicopter unsettle you? Do you want an elegant, pretty, perhaps even understated holiday space? I know how you feel. Well, I’m going to share with you how I created an intimate outdoor Christmas setting for under $50.
As you may know I was able to spend most of last week on location with Angelo Surmelis for his video/photo shoot for the next installment of his furniture line for angelo:HOME. While it was tough work and long days, we had a blasty-blast! Or as my girl Deena would say "this was a good time!"
We're getting close to the big day, I hope everything has been going well thus far. This is the time period during the moving processes that I like to call "Tedious Tasks and To-Do's" because seriously, they are, and they are not even the semi fun obsessive OCD tasks like packing and organizing. Unfortunately, they must be completed, but to make these things fun I kinda geek out and type up a to-do list like this:
My most recent furniture piece I made based on the fact that I am in a semi-transient state, hmm word choice? I guess I'm trying to say that I'm not completely rooted down yet, as in I love my little apartment but soon I may want to actually buy my own place instead of just paying rent every month which in all honestly I'll never see again. So that means yet another possible move in my future. (BTW I despise moving, I never fail to lose something important.) So far I have moved a total of 8 times in the past 5 years, which is highly normal at my age, going back and forth to college. But that means that my furniture had it quite rough, almost all of my wooden tables, chairs etc had to be replaced after this last move. Amazingly, my Ikea bed, which is "wrought iron" survived though all 8 moves and is still standing tall and study. I digress, wasn't I supposed to be talking about wood or something?
