It’s been a long process, but finally all of the floors in our apartment are painted! We left the hallway for last, because it is by far the most inconvenient to paint. Every morning before work I would paint myself out of the apartment, and by the time we came home the paint would be dry and be alright to walk on. We attempted to barricade our cat in the living room by moving the piano to block the hallway, but after the first day she found a way out. Juli came upstairs and heard paws on the keys of the piano, a thunk and a pitter-patter down the hallway. This obviously wasn’t the first time that happened.
Our front entrance now has light coming from both ends of the hallway.
Check out how it looked before.
Not the smoothest transition into the black floors.
Sometimes things arrive damaged, and sometimes those damaged pieces go in our apartment.
Case in point: Naoto Fukasawa dining chair.
We also moved the wishbone chairs and replaced them with a pair of floor models from the store. The wishbone chairs although beautiful, just weren’t very comfortable. They have been replaced with the Naoto Fukasawa lounge chair, which has been sitting in our showroom for 10 months.
We’re entering dangerous territory.
Definitely no way to run a business.
But how could we resist the smooth sexy curves of this very beautiful piece? We always secretly wanted them for ourselves (still available to purchase new though!).
