Okay, so I only have photos of four of them (there were two of the night stands) but can you believe that we sold five pieces of furniture last week and have, so far, replaced them with…. NOTHING.
The night stands were emptied out last fall, the two chest of drawers were barely half full and the chest was holding a few pieces of sports equipment. My snow shoes are now in the front hall closet and we have a laundry basket of clothing that needs a home.
I was all set to hunt down a night stand and dresser on Craigslist, items with a more modern look that would go with our bed. Then Chris asked me, do we really need to get a dresser? Made me think. I’m not so sure we do. Maybe we can make it work with just a night stand.
The extra space in our bedroom is heavenly. I forgot that we actually have a large master bedroom for a condo. We can fit a King size bed in it and a few pieces of furniture. Most condos max out at a Queen size bed with barely any room to walk around the bed. With all the furniture gone we’re enjoying the view of False Creek again. And if I could do I cartwheel I now have the space.
More photos of our home to come as we switch out larger furniture that we no longer need.
posts I loved this week
RowdyKittens No Refrigerator Challenge: we aren’t close, probably never will be, to going without a refrigerator. But I am fascinated to see how Tammy Strobel plans her meals and shops with just a small cooler to store dairy. I’ve been on a good week/bad week cycle of meal planning here. Need some motivation to get my routine down. Help me, Jo!
Vote for a Minimalist Novel: Rayna has a few pages of her as yet unpublished book up on Authonomy. Go have a read. I was riveted with the opening page. If you’re wondering how some people find the motivation to become minimalists Rayna’s story will hit home. Warning: it’s quite emotional.
For anyone in BC that gets cable, I’ll be talking about life with less on the Sunday morning news segment at GlobalNews. Should be on around 9am PST. Yes, the draw back to no cable is that we won’t be able to record it. Or maybe that is a bonus. And for your next question: no, I will not be going out to buy something new to wear on TV. Although I may borrow something from my sister.
Have a great weekend and remember to unplug.
