Hold on. Whoa. I know. Wait. Just. Stick with it.

Before you say anything, I honestly hope you’ll feel deep within your innermost sticky parts my honest regret radiating out of the interweb. I’d planned to have something more entertaining to slap up on the ‘ol blog, but apparently failed monumentally. Trust that I fully realize things have been INCREDIBLY furniture heavy around here lately.

Maybe it might be prudent to address this whole ebay shop thing. Maybe I’ll put that off for a bit…let’s do that later…

Hows about we look at this mid century spindle table. It’s trying so hard to be like a Warren Platner, so very very hard. Just give it up table, it’s not going to happen. You are already spindly and wooden can hold stuff like a champ.

This one is for the fellas! It’s a super sexy leather and rosewood Falcon chair + ottoman designed by Sigurd Ressel for Vatne Møbler, Norway.

If our Chesterfield sofa wasn’t all brown town and all leather, then this hot thing would be our television lounging chair. Turns out that all that dark leather and dark wood piled into a single room feels way more bachelor than my admittedly masculine taste can handle.

Hey! This vintage adjustable tension shelving unit / room divider has long been apart of the ever evolving den. With all the switching and change going down in there it’s time for this baby to move on to a better place.

Apparently that better place was not my little photo area. The roof was about a foot too low to install this puppy in the designated photo zone – so the rear exterior brick wall with all it’s awesomely random pipes and slanted cement slab ended up being a stand in. We try and keep it classy. With water softener pipes.

These should be up in the BRICKHOUSE MODERN radically hardcore shop around 7pm-ish, depending of course on how my software wants to behave.

Ugh. Time for the the shop talk? Blech.

I’m assuming we are all intelligent and reasonable people. Most of the time at least? Right? I feel silly pointing out something this simple, but…

This little renovation (or maybe design blog? home blog?) is going to be really, really boring and pointless if there are no funds for projects or a house.

Kate recently dealt with a similar issue and bloggers can attest to this, but it blows getting rude emails and disparaging comments regarding a project you’re psyched and invested in doing. It also blows attempting to not take it totally personally (you know, those totally impersonal attacks on a personal blog about personal choices).

What doesn’t blow is all the researching, traveling to find pieces, spending hours laboring to restore them, troubleshooting the day to day complications, styling, photographing, editing, answering questions, arranging shipping and so forth that this venture requires. After years documenting furniture zooming in and out of the house and selling in every imaginable venue, it seems obvious I’d be very into doing this particular type of thang.

The online shop wasn’t intended to be quick or temporary but was labored over and approached as a serious endeavor. It’s also an additional way to help with the living in and fixing up of a modest brick house in an unbearably dull and low income retirement community. So yes, *so* living the high life constantly. Glamorous crazy parties at Applebee’s every night of the week!

Ok, maybe soon I can write some entertaining or informative posts that aren’t about furniture? Yes!
