Billy the Chewer

Mirror

I love our new little dog Billy, but I HATE that he chews up everything.  I know he’s a puppy and that’s what puppies do, and when he chewed up two pairs of heels, my flip flops, my rug pad, my rug, my carpet (that now needs to be replaced, thank you Billy), and countless stuffed animals, I had patience, but when I saw that he chewed up the new upholstery job that I just did on the guest bed, I saw red!

RippedNeedless to say, Billy is now banned from the basement.

After I calmed down, I fixed the spot that was chewed to hell and since I had lots of practice it looked better than the original- I’m stretching for that silver lining!   It really does look fine now… I wish I could say the same for my heels :(.

Fixed Upholstery

Can’t even tell that it was a slobbery mess an hour ago

Also in the guest room I found that my mirror habit is alive and well and try as I could to find something for above the bed that was not a mirror, I just couldn’t.  So, mirror it is!  I like this one since it is the same wood style as the dresser so it goes well together.  It’s from World Market, btw.

I also installed one of the lights over the nightstands- only one because after waiting for MONTHS for the lights to come in, one was defective and I had to return it.

Light Fixture

(Hello, I see you!)

 I still have to find a way to hide the cords that run down the wall from the light fixture and the clock.  Because eventually an electrician will hard wire the fixtures, I just need a quick fix for now.

And other than painting which is not high on my list currently (and wire hiding), this area is done for now!
