Meanwhile, our hardwood has been loaded on a truck and is on it's way. Our washstands, however, are now on back order until the end of January. I'm okay with this as it'll give us a chance to get back from Mexico and install wainscotting in the evenings (we're doing the finicky trim installation to cut costs - it's easy but labour intensive). I was not looking forward to installing it behind already-installed sinks.
I also stumbled across a fantastic idea in a back issue of House and Home magazine. This fall, when we were going through my grandmother's house, we found a massive collection of doilies. Some were one's she'd made, some were made by my Auntie Donna and others were from my great grandmother and great, great grandmother. They're beautiful but I was at a loss about what to do with them. I'm going to frame them in black frames on black matting and then display them as a collection. I don't have the picture from H&H digitally but here's another I found that does the same thing. I don't quite like the presentation as much, though.
