Wish List

I usually put together a wish list for my birthday (at the end of this month!) But this year I have wayyy too much to wish for. Our house should be done the middle of next month and we couldn't be more excited. The following is a very long list of wonderful things I wish I could have for our house. Unfortunately, we will need A LOT of stuff when we move! Blinds, a fridge, microwave, range, washer and dryer, TV, couches, etc. Since the day we got married we knew we were going to live in Hawaii, so we tried not to accumulate too much stuff. It was nice to not have to store furniture while we lived away, however now we have next to nothing to fill our house with! Not even a TV! (Our basement apartment came equipped with a TV and couches). It is fun collecting furniture, but it is a slow process. I just need to be patient. . .

Living room and sitting room. We actually bought the sectional. At least we'll have a couch!



I would love to find an old ladder to use as a shelf, but if not I have seen something similar to this one at Target. That would work too.

Ever since Rod saw these book bookshelves he has wanted to make them. We are currently hunting for cool old books like these ones.

Kitchen - we have the white chairs (thank you KSL), and a table that looks a lot like this one that we got from the D.I. it just needs to be refinished. We want to have a bench on one side, and gray padded chairs at each end.


Like this . . .

And maybe some chairs like this at the bar . . . 


We found this buffet at the D.I. too. A 1960's treasure. We really want our house to have a 60's modern theme.



Bedroom - I bought this duvet cover a while ago and I'm still trying decide if I'm going to keep it. I like chevron, and it fits the theme, so I probably will. Hopefully our bedroom furniture that I refinished last summer will look good with it! I like the mix of old and new. 


Someday!
