The Reeds and Decor Ideas
I passed Dasia's house on my way to the basement. Her house is still in my craft room. I decided to check in on her and Harold. They were both still in the bed, but sort of awake. Their eyes were open, but neither one of them were moving.
Dasia can tell Harold is awake. She finally breaks the ice.
"Goodness, why is it so cold in here? Didn't you turn the heat up before we went to sleep last night?" (Dasia)
"I didn't know I was supposed to?" (Harold)
"I thought I asked you to, but maybe that conversation only happened in my head." (Dasia)
Benji is sprawled out on the sofa, sound asleep.
Harold turns onto his back.
"Don't move too much I need your body heat." (Dasia)
"I was going to get up and turn up the heat." (Harold)
"Not yet." (Dasia)
Harold turns over to face his wife.
"If you are really that cold, I could help with that." (Harold)
Dasia just rolls her eyes.
"I'm too cold to move. And that requires the cover leaving my body. Not going to happen." (Dasia)
That was my cue to leave. I continued on to the basement. I wanted to play around a bit with the new houses and gather some potential decorating ideas.
I changed out the kitchen in the Glamorous house. The Sears kitchen was just too big. The white shelf to the right will hold small appliances.
I will be extending the dining room. The walls and the floor will be covered. The blue chairs and table are from the Uptown house. It works so well here. It just might stay.
The Sears kitchen is now in the Uptown house. I will be covering up the hole in the floor and adding a little table.
To continue the theme of moving furniture between houses....look how nice the black sofa from the Uptown house goes in the Glamorous house. I used the two fushia chairs from the dining set to create a sofa table. These chairs would make great night stands in the bedroom or end tables in the living room.
Just another layout using an old Mattel chair I spray painted black many years ago. The keyboard is from the Uptown house.
I spotted my zebra chairs and got another idea. The Ikea white sofa is a little too short for these chairs, so I will have to make a taller white sofa. I put a white cabinet over in the corner. It will make a great little bar. The hole in this floor will also be covered up.
These two beds are from the house I bought for Dasia. They make the perfect teen beds. I may turn them into bunkbeds by drilling holes in the wood and adding a wooden dowel.
As you can see, I was having way too much fun. It was nice to get a few ideas. I will start working on temporary walls soon.\
