wknd deets

I hope I'm not the only one that can't get anything accomplished with the Olympics on TV. I'm either glued to the screen or happily snoozing on the couch while other countries play basketball.

I kicked off the weekend on Friday at Kristin's house for the Opening Ceremony. We were quick to judge all the apparel and decide which uniform we liked best. Fun night!

On Saturday I piddled around the mall and thrifted in the afternoon. I scored an awesome vintage swan vase. I'm not sure what I'll do with it quite yet. Right now it's where I left it by the sink to dry after I washed it. Kinda like a cute way to hide ugly dish washing sponges, etc too but I'm leaning towards putting it on this when I'm done hacking it.
That's right ladies and gents, I'm doing THIS hack. Our brown leaning bookshelf just isn't cutting the mustard against our RL brown suede painted walls in the living room. Taylor and Jacob stopped by Ikea (since the nearest one is 2+ hours away) for me on their weekend warrior road trip. They did a ton of driving in a short amount of time and then sweetly stopped by the house to deposit the monster of a box before heading home. I was surprised that all the pieces were in one really long box since Ikea usually sends you off with 5 different boxes for the one item and this box was so heavy. I'm glad I told Jake to set it in the living room because there's no way I could have moved that heavy box or put the unit together anywhere else in the house by myself. 8,000 tiny screws and Chinese-like instructions later, I put it all together by myself! It was too late to complete the hack last night but it's going gold after work today. My inspiration:

I've wanted to do that hack, also! I just don't have anywhere to put it. Make sure to post pictures!
