A Bit More Shopping

We are pretty much done shopping, but we have picked up a few more purchases this week. Our master bathroom has virtually no storage other than a medicine cabinet, so I've been poking around on craigslist for a couple of weeks to find a suitable piece of furniture that would hold a few spare toiletries.

This week, I found this mission oak commode (a small cabinet originally used to hold a bed pan) being offered by someone in West Linn and tonight we went by and bought it. The seller claimed it was originally made for the Multnomah Hotel in the 1910s and their family acquired it when the hotel remodeled in the 50s.

Yesterday afternoon, we dropped in at House of Antique Hardware to purchase picture rail hooks and cord. We had expected the business was a hardware store but it turns out that it's more of a warehouse. They were nice to us and still sold us what we wanted, but it was certainly more of a hassle. We haven't actually hung up any art yet, but we're prepared now.

Today we received a new runner for our entryway from Jeff's and my textbooks have also started arriving; Jeff's books definitely look more enjoyable to read!
