Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species.
This is how I remembered the order of these scientific terms. Ugh, I hated biology. This silly mnemonic device was the only thing I enjoyed about Biology in high school. And I took Biology 101 and 102 in college during the summer so I would only suffer through six weeks rather than one full year of this cursed class. And now our new roommate is a Biology teacher. I’m sure he’s a much better Biology teacher than the ones I had. I am still so glad that I am done with school and never have to take Biology again, EVER!
Wait – this is a house blog, right? What a tangent.
Kings play chess on fat girls’ stomachs. Chess is a game. You can’t play a game without a flat surface to play on. A table usually works best. And our game table is finally done! Okay, we’re back on track.
Before – a cheap dining set from IKEA:
(Please forgive me for the lame attempt at styling. I watched the uber-awesome Emily on her new show, Secrets of a Stylist, and got inspired. Emily would be disappointed in me. Actually, she would just laugh at me.)
I think it looks much better in white! But sorta plain. I want to add cushions to it. And it will look so much better once we paint our game room a dark gray. And then get wood flooring installed.
I am a visual person, so I want to show you what it will look like later on. Yes, you guessed it… It’s Bad Photoshop Time!
This is the worst photoshop, EVER. Did you notice that I missed a table leg (on the right)? But you get the idea, I hope.
In case you wanted to see the fabrics in their original state, here are photos – all are from Fanny’s Fabrics in Austin. Great little fabric shop. I don’t know if we’ll go with any of them, but these are the general colors we’re going for.
Is my photoshopping skills so bad that I should just stop?
