There will be a postlude but for now we are finished.
We painted the walls and woodwork.
We changed out the old carpet.
We pared down the contents of the living room including removing a lot of chains.
There were chains holding a hanging lamp, chains holding a glass globe filled with fake flowers, and chains connecting some wall decoration.
We’ve been set free from the chains.
We replaced the vintage sofa with a new pale blue one from Ikea. The old sofa had a matching chair which we had hauled away with the old sofa.
The work team is happy that the room has been lightened and simplified. The resident is delighted with her newly freshened living room.
The only items remaining on the to-do list are rehanging the curtains on new rods and returning the artwork to the walls which we will do when the resident has all the pieces together and gives us a call.
Is there a piece of furniture in your house you would like to get rid of but can’t bring yourself to do so?
