There’s More Than One Shade of Brown
Bloglovin’ tells me I’m back in business, so let’s hope this reaches your feeds!
There’s more than one shade of brown, and I can testify and preach about that til the cows are moo-ing at my door. I mean, really. You have heard me complain about my floor boards and their disastrous installation in my new apartment for the better part of a year. Well, the ceiling hit the fan (or something like that) this week. The Developer sent in a new tradesman to “fix” all the damage created by the original installer. This new guy, bless his singing soul, did the best he could, and we were left with this:
If you’ve left your glasses in the other room, well, my $11,500 floor is now two colours of brown. I know a lot of you revolt against brown in your quilts (I’m still a fan!), but I refuse to accept a brown patchwork floor! Egads, mama! So what did I get in return for this great flooring option? The majority of the living room furniture (sans sofa) packed into my sewing room for the week. I feel like there’s been a full on invasion into my space, not to mention the amount of dust that is now lingering everywhere. Oh, don’t mind me, I’ll just be over here feather dusting my fabric! Oooh la la.
Okay, so the good news (rant over, I promise), the Developer came to inspect, and finally, finally, finally, realised what they should have done to begin with. They have now agreed to replace the entire floor throughout the apartment. Say what? Yeah, so sometime in the immediate future, I, along with the entire apartment, will be moving out again (hello, deja vu) so the floor can be entirely replaced. The catch–you were waiting for it, right?: They can’t replace with the same walnut floor boards because it is no longer an available product. Of course, it isn’t.
But tonight, tonight, my precious Glitterati, I pushed all of that damn furniture out of my space, and I can reach my sewing machine again. I feel like I’m about to burst, so I hope I don’t get any of my glittery mess on my fabrics. Hmm… maybe that’s a new fabric trend just waiting to pop!
