Time Beginning: 21 days old
W O W, we love our new chairs. Our Cherner side chairs just arrived, allowing us to take out our old Thonet chairs (which we also love, but they are not part of this chapter here on Bedford Street). While many of you voted for the Camogli Chair a number of months back, we went this direction for less money, shorter lead time and more color and couldn't be happier. These Cherner classics are super comfortable, joyful and slip into our space without taking up any room.
On other fronts, after breathing a collective sigh and feeling such great joy at moving back in, it is now time to deal with the punch list. Our kitchen is in great working order, but we needed to solve the problem of how to hang the floating shelves (which are really heavy) and how to repair our Durat countertop, which had too large an opening for the cooktop and needs one seam repaired. Luckily, Durat is such a workable material we are told we can repair on site and do not need to order a whole new piece.
This weekend we are getting back into the swing of things and doing some more nesting (painting the floor in the bedroom, mounting the medicine cabinet, etc) and I promise pics of all this on Monday.
But did I say that there is no joy like moving back into a newly renovated apartment? OMG, there is no joy quite like it...
