Thanks, you guys! I'm looking forward to moving in and making my countless hours of watching HGTV pay off.
And Mo, you're so right. That Expedit would be perfect! I think I'll be buying another one. Who put the last one together for me? I believe it was young Schmin. Ah, the red couch decision, lol. I keep thinking maybe a red couch might do it this time too. But I'm going to try to branch out.
Whenever I'm faced with a new project, I head to the library to see what the experts have to say. On decorating, they have a lot to say on the level where your house looks like a page out of House Beautiful Magazine (and you start with a structure out of Architectural Digest). And if you happen to own a circular saw, there are quite a few titles that show you how to use it to save money. The pretty-on-the-cheap chorus needs more voices. I haven't looked through all the books I checked out yet, but so far Todd Oldham has the most fabulous ideas; things I never thought of. There's some building involved, which I won't be doing, but there are also some good sewing projects and lots of inspiration.
