HomeSense has the best prices and a great selection of lamps and art! I purchased this canvas on Saturday for the living room. I'll put it above the fireplace.
Here is a little update on the bedroom progress. The dresser and side tables were delivered. I love them. Originally I didn't want to get a matching set but the price was right. The side tables will provide a lot of storage for us. I purchased the lamps from HomeSense on Saturday. I love them as is but will most likely paint the base in a high gloss colour at some point - once I figure out the colour scheme and feel of the room.
I usually like to concentrate on one room at a time because you can get it done a lot quicker and feel a sense of accomplishment. There is so much to do in every room of our house!! I bet the only room to be fully completed by Christmas will be the nursery. I keep telling myself to take it one step at a time. Once the living room furniture arrives it will make it feel more like a home and somewhere we can entertain.
I have a busy day scheduled at work. I must get a proposal out this afternoon and hopefully close the deal by next week. I really want to hit my Q1 budget and I'm so close! Wish me luck!
