1 Digging Out of a Mini-Rut

>> Thursday, December 24, 2009

Ever get the feeling that what used to seem right, doesn’t any longer? I know you have felt my pain. Take for example Eric’s days of bachelorhood. Many single-guy appropriate decor choices that once were permissible, do not always qualify for married life. Case in point: Our now fabulous-if-I-do-say-so-myself TV console table (for the back story, click here and after story, click here).

We are semi-newlyweds after all, and every now and then I stumble across a bachelor no-no that I wouldn’t mind seeing go by the wayside. Let’s pay a visit to our coffee table gear.

Currently, however, I was ready for a bit of table top tweaking, and last night seemed like a good night to dig ourselves out of a mini-bachelorhood rut. After scrounging up a few accessories, we were in business!

We hung onto the wicker balls as well as a stainless bowl—another bachelorhood purchase—to keep Eric’s manliness alive. I preferred a few inspirational decor books and a piece of coral from a recent trip to Mexico. I’d appreciate if you kept our sea life swindling a secret from customs…

More often than not, newlyweds are challenged to combine the likes/dislikes of both husband and wife. Fortunately it’s not one way or the highway and both Eric & I can usually come to terms on our home style choices. Coffee table in point!

I miss those curls! Eric should consider growing his hair out!
