I decided to insulate our basement myself. Yes, you read that right, myself. We wanted to stay
*on track* with our basement remodel, and keep a great drywaller, who said he could only fit us in this week. So, I put on those awkward-extra-large- man-sized utility gloves and got to work.
It took about 3 hours to cut and install the insulation. Somehow I really enjoyed the process, which is unexplainable, really. It was easier than I thought... cut , push between studs, staple, repeat. My daughter and I left bright and early the next morning for a grand opening of our showroom in Downtown Chicago.
The showroom is gorgeous.
Italian mosaics in the foyer:
My favorite tile in the whole wide world: Pratt and Larson
We made our way over to West Elm for a bit. Love. it. all. It felt like home... maybe that is why Peyton was rearranging?
Our last stop, The Shedd Aquarium.
The jelly fish exhibit was so much cooler than these photos show.
