Because you all are waiting with bated breath (well, maybe not), I introduce to you the vanity, completely painted, however not currently assembled, including the fabric I chose to line the drawers. In my last post, I was agonizing over what decorative paper/wrapping paper I was going to use.

I have spent some time now searching for the PERFECT gift wrap to use for lining the drawers of my Vanity. I’m torn between different designs/styles/colors/etc. I think this is why I tend to just go with boring things, because I can never make my mind up on something.
I suppose the good thing about this, however, is that if I get bored of what I have it’s fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. At any rate, here are a couple things I have picked out, laid on top of the progress photo to judge color.
So, I have been semi-casually looking for a Vanity for my room. I happened upon this beauty on craigslist and decided to take it home. However, it was in a desperate need of paint. I was originally going to repaint it white, but I thought, you know, my room is already boring enough with a chocolate bedspread, expresso furniture, black lamp, beige walls, etc, why not go for some COLOR? And so, I did. I choose Valspar’s City Chartreuse based off a drawing I have printed poster-size and hung up in our bedroom (although I am thinking about replace that with a new drawing – same colors, but new art).

My first honest-to-goodness purchase for the Kindle was a KJV bible from OSNOVA because of the direct jump navigational functionality. For $4.99 you can’t beat it!
Depending on your individual preferences, you can purchase a version where each verse is on a separate line, or paragraphed (which is what I chose), or without any navigation or chapter/verse numbers for those who desire to use the Text-to-Speech feature.
Apparently I was the lucky one that got this book for free, as it now comes with a $9.99 price tag, and thus I can no longer tag it as a free book. However, this is a great reminder to you all that you should check Amazon regularly for free books and download the heck of them… you can always delete them later if you decide they are really not your cup of tea.
You just didn’t know it would take me this long to blog about it. As I mentioned in the Kindle 2 Price Cut post, I was now much closer to lounging with my Kindle in total bliss, and sure enough shortly after I took the plunge. I ordered it last Friday, and it arrived on Thursday. Which means I have had the Kindle for all of 4 days. I have already read 2 books, and contemplating the next. The device has also been updated to the latest firmware which includes organizing books into collections. My goal for the 4th of July Official Work HolidayTM is to 1) not forget to exercise or eat and 2) Get all of my digital books properly categorized and organized.
