Its another rainy day in Boston. Medford isn't looking too hot either. Looking out the window at the wet deck - rain drops falling. I'm hoping it will clear by afternoon so I can run out and get some groceries.
Today is a cleaning day - need to wash the floors, clean the surfaces and bathroom. My parents are coming to town & of course I'll be wanting to give them a good impression of our new home. I'll be posting pictures after their visit!
We bought our furniture from a wonderful place called "Metamorphisis" near Porter Square. Eddie, the gentleman who runs the place and Alexander his side-kick are very nice people. They have a fantastic selection of old used furniture which they proceed to clean up and re-paint to give a retro style or classic style to your home furnishings. Eddie loves to paint things up in lovely colours - which you may or may not like - as Steph would find out when the legs of his desk came to us in a brilliant shade of tourquise (quite reminiscent of my bridesmaids' saris). But at the same time, Eddie insisted on taking the furniture back and repainting it a more suitable color - black in this case. In the same way, our dining table has been going through various stages of painting and as a result we are still waiting on the dining table and a pair of book shelves. I would recommend Eddie and Metamorphisis because of his desire to make sure that every customer is satisfied, his interest in testing and trying new 'art' furniture on his customers to get their reaction, and yet he's happy to go ahead and put it back the way you actually wanted it - if it turns out you don't like the change. The other nice thing is we did buy all of our current furniture (minus the futon and bed) from the one shop for one fairly decent price (for the amount of furniture)!
Now I only hope that we get the dining table back before my parents arrive!
