After the painting is done, I have decided to hang my maps behind the couch. I have one of New York City and one of England, the two places I wish I could visit on a weekly basis. (Okay, truth be told, I wish I could live in New York, but McDonough will do for now). The couch is moved out from the wall as we prepare to paint, and after seeing it away from the wall, Scott and I agree that we definitely need a sofa table to go behind the couch. I plan to spend the next few weeks pouring over Craigslist for a super cheap table that will work there.
I am going to put Sarah's painting over the fire place, and I am going to move the mirror that is currently over the fire place to the wall where I now have a gallery of Ada photos. Hopefully, by summer's end, our living room will finally be complete. Of course I will post "after" pictures when it is all said and done.
