It took about eight months to re-wire, re-plumb, re-everything at our Coast Awhile Cottage renovation and while all that work was happening I was dreaming along with Jane Coslick about how to furnish the house.
We knew we would use neutral colored furniture (mostly white) with pops of color to bring the rooms to life. Lots of window shopping for bargains happened and then lots of purchases.
|So glad Henry helped me this day--we had 8 (!) carts of stuff from IKEA. One of their warehouse associates helped us wheel everything up to the register and then we were on our own--good thing Henry is strong!|
Once again--just like with The Coral Cottage adventure in this post--I drove a big U-Haul truck to Tybee with everything from IKEA plus all the other goodies that had been accumulated. Once I got there Patricia McCoury from Tybee Girl Helpers and two of her helpers...
jumped on the truck and unloaded everything in short order...
How these ladies got the sofa up the stairs I do not know--they are super strong! Then before I knew it they had put the sofa and the chairs together! It was impressive!
Tybee Girls? More like Wonder Women!

Thanks ladies! You'll be hearing from me when it's time to move into Doc Holiday!
