How is the Cure going...

Well, let's see...

Behold the newly improved landing strip!

The outbox is officially empty (for now.)

My lovely amber lamp (blogged about here) is finally free of its bubble wrap, is now displayed, and has been used frequently.

See, it can also be a night light!

And even if a lot doesn't seem to have changed in the picture below, this is a much happier and cozier place than it was six months ago. You might not know if by looking at it but a lot of stuff has been taken out of this room and gone to the shredder, Goodwill, or to the trash.

Still to do:

Mount IKEA LACK shelf - I went to a hardware store and purchased what I hope are the correct anchors to mount this in the wall securely.

Paint armoire and dining table. However, I keep changing my mind on which colors.

Install DEKA wire hanging system for curtains to separate the living room from the kitchen. Here is the fabric I decided on for the curtain.

Purchase and frame the artwork below for the walls. Just bought it online!
Purchase and frame the above artwork for the walls.

Mount full length mirror horizontally on the wall opposite LACK shelf to see how it looks. If I like it, I will paint the frame.

Perhaps mount colored IKEA frames in an arrangement similar to this one used by interior design firm Wary Meyers . It would add color to the walls without the use of paint.
