This week we’re going over the way to furnish a home from scratch since I not too long ago offered a house absolutely furnished and needed to begin over. Plus, we’re going to inform you our responsible pleasure treasures. All proper. So yeah, I believe that that is going to be a enjoyable episode. So earlier than we bounce in, Emma has had her home sprayed by a skunk 3 times within the final. What number of months? 

Emma: Yeah. We’ve lived in our home for six months and 3 times our canine has gotten sprayed by a skunk and a few weeks in the past, it was twice in a single week. And it’s so unhappy for our canine as a result of skunk spray in the event you don’t know clearly it smells horrible, however it’s additionally like itchy and it makes him sneeze an entire bunch and he’s simply clearly making an attempt to guard our home. However I’m additionally like, Steve, no want, that skunk is just not gonna get in the home, simply depart it alone. However yeah, after which he smells horrible after which he runs everywhere in the home. So then our entire home smells like skunk. And one night time it occurred, it was like midnight as a result of skunks are nocturnal. So this week, actually earlier than we began recording, I used to be like, maintain on, I would like a couple of minutes. I’m on the telephone with the skunk trapper as a result of we’re paying somebody to come back and entice them and take them away as a result of we don’t actually know what else to do at this level as a result of clearly they maintain getting in and it’s like we don’t stay in a forest. I stay like on a nook lot with an everyday little fence in an everyday neighborhood. I don’t see why we’re having this skunk downside, however we actually are and in the intervening time our visitor bed room, which is the place Steve’s mattress is, smells so unhealthy and it has for like an entire week straight. And I’ve tried every thing the web has stated to try to it’s not getting higher, and I don’t know. I believe it’s higher, however it’s simply intense. 

Elsie: So ship Emma any recommendations you may have for breaking a skunk curse as a result of she clearly has a curse and it must be damaged. 

Emma: It’s not good. It’s not good over right here. You’ll be able to’t come over it stinks.

Elsie: I’ve by no means had a skunk expertise. So I imply apart from like driving, everybody’s had that. However yeah, I’ve by no means had a skunk expertise at my home and t it does sound actually scary. Oh my god. 

Emma: It isn’t good. It’s unhealthy. It’s type of humorous too as a result of I truly assume skunks are actually cute. Just like the animals.

Elsie: Oh yeah, they’re cute. 

Emma: However man, in the event you see after I’m like, run the opposite method, run as quick as you’ll be able to. Don’t scare it. Like, I don’t know, it lingers. Ah. In order that’s my private story. 

Elsie: Rattling you skunks. 

Emma: Really feel sorry for me or not nonetheless you are feeling. I really feel sorry for myself. 

Elsie: I believe they do. I believe that everybody feels sorry for you since you’re cursed.

Emma: I’m cursed. 

Elsie: Properly, I hope that that’s the final time. 3 times appears like sufficient. You may give us an replace in a few months. 

Emma: I’ll let you already know if the trapping labored in the event that they bought ’em. I don’t know. I don’t know. I’ve by no means referred to as an animal trapper earlier than on this method. 

Elsie: I’m like on this method since you did. 

Emma: Properly, that was a lifeless animal. 

Elsie: A snake out of your home. 

Emma: We used to stay by a forest and we had some main snake issues then, however now we’ve got a skunk downside.

Elsie: I type of assume it’s a curse that’s following you from home to accommodate. 

Emma: It appears to be. Though nothing actually occurred to me at Weller and I lived there on my own for a bit bit. So perhaps it’s Trey’s curse. It’s perhaps my husband’s curse. I don’t know, we’re all cursed on this home now trigger all of us odor a bit bit. Oscar’s room is skunk free at the very least. In order that’s good.

Elsie: Properly, I’m enthusiastic about this episode. So not too long ago we offered our home, furnished our home in Tennessee, and we needed to, and I did an entire episode about that, a few episodes again. So we’ll hyperlink that within the present notes. After which as we speak we thought we’d spend an episode speaking about what it’s wish to furnish a home from scratch as a result of I’ve gotten plenty of questions on it and I do assume it’s attention-grabbing. It was enjoyable, and it was positively each very enjoyable and type of plenty of strain to do it like so speedy, however I might say principally enjoyable. And I’ll say I’m contemplating this episode, I’m giving us a type of little psychological bubbles, and I’m contemplating this episode a judgment-free zone as a result of I believe that speaking overtly about shopping for furnishings to your whole home was a bit goal on my again and I settle for that, I get it, however it’s like type of what occurred virtually and like no matter. And yeah, I believed I might begin with the judgemental story, only for the enjoyable of it to type of like affect everybody to not be this manner. Okay. So you know the way in your DMS typically, I don’t know if this has ever occurred to you however each every so often, it doesn’t occur to me a lot, however somebody will ship a message that’s like clearly meant for his or her good friend, that’s shit speaking you, however it involves you. 

Emma: Sure. That’s wonderful. 

Elsie: Yeah. And I don’t know the way it occurs. 

Emma: It’s of their mind, they’re like speaking about you, and unexpectedly they by accident click on over to sending it to you, that’s so humorous. 

Elsie: And I believe they perhaps, I don’t know in the event that they realize it or not, however yeah, so I bought one. I haven’t gotten one in a very long time, and I bought one the opposite day that simply stated she offered all her children’ books and it like bugged me so freaking unhealthy as a result of, nicely, I’ll inform the entire thing. It bugged me so unhealthy as a result of initially, I purchased all our books not too long ago, like final yr. So we made the hidden Library solely like a yr in the past, a yr and a half in the past or two years in the past. It wasn’t even there. It was like, it wasn’t there, it didn’t exist. So, I suppose what I wanna say in protection of myself and in protection of, I suppose it’s a life lesson I realized all through this expertise. One among my associates on Instagram additionally, had her home burned down and we had been type of commiserating about it, this can be a little bit of comparable issues, having your home burned down versus promoting your entire home furnished is the belief that 99% of the issues in your home are replaceable, and it’s one thing that I believe we simply don’t understand that, however it’s true for in all probability all of us. And sure, I’ve household photographs and I’ve this actually particular portray of my grandma and I’ve a few items of clothes and a few mementos, my children’ portray, and issues like that. However total, 99% of the issues in our home are issues I may simply purchase once more tomorrow from common shops and we wouldn’t even discover that they had been totally different. And I believe that that’s good. I believe that it ought to be encouraging and it ought to be a wholesome reminder that that is all simply stuff. And even when it’s a curated assortment of lovely books the place you picked out each single one and also you’ve both learn them otherwise you intend to learn them, it’s nonetheless stuff that you can substitute in at some point with an inventory and a bank card. You already know what I imply? Yeah. So, anyway, from my perspective, I wasn’t actually upset in regards to the particular person, I believed it was imply, what they stated. However the extra I thought of it, the extra I used to be like, initially, I’m grateful that I do know now that every thing’s replaceable and it’s not a giant deal to me. I’m not crying over the books, and we’ll purchase our children simply as many books, in all probability far more in our new dwelling, they usually’re not gonna be like missing for books. I promise you for one single day of their lives they’re simply not. And the opposite factor that I realized from this expertise is that I used to be extraordinarily honored to depart a completely styled, absolutely good children’ library for one more household to take pleasure in. And that was truly a very cool expertise. I felt like I used to be compensated for making this lovely factor and I’ll have the ability to make one other one for my children sooner or later. And I don’t know, I believed that was type of cool too. So anyway, now we’re within the judgment-free bubble. 

Emma: Apart from me, I’m gonna choose you as a lot as I would like, as regular. 

Elsie: I do know. I truly, love your judgements although. That’s positive. I can take it for positive. Okay, let’s chat about it. 

Emma: Yeah. So the place did you begin? I suppose as a result of I really feel wish to me it sounds so overwhelming to be like, oh, okay so that they bottle the furnishings. How thrilling, constructive factor, now that I’ve wrapped my head round it, so it’s like, what do you begin amassing first? Did you make a hierarchy of wants or how did you even prioritize? As a result of clearly sooner or later you’ll run out of price range or no matter and similar to depart some issues off similar to a renovations, however it’s like how do you know the place to start out and what was the method of that type of factor? 

Elsie: Sure. I positively have some procuring tricks to share. So the very first thing is, I believe it’s vital to have an inventory of stuff you wanna purchase instantly, like a quick record, and stuff you wanna acquire over time, a sluggish record. So some examples of issues that I believe could be good to placed on the quick record are beds, mattress frames, mattresses, furnishings, rugs, and issues which can be foundational to your room which can be annoying to maneuver out and in. Simply the bottom layer of getting all the fundamental issues, curtains, like that. And issues that I personally assume are higher to do slowly are decor, wallpaper, particulars, collections, antiques, artwork, and even framing and hanging footage. That’s one thing that I’ll wait just a few months till I’ve lived there for a short while and thought of it a bit bit earlier than shopping for all of it and placing it up. So, yeah, I type of simply give it some thought in two layers and the layer that I’ve been engaged on at first is type of similar to the bottom layer, which I might additionally name the furnishings layer. And it does embrace curtains and rugs, however just about the issues that make your room practical and cozy, like having the correct quantity of tables and chairs. We talked earlier than about how one thing annoying that occurred was that throughout the pandemic we had simply moved into a house and I didn’t purchase all of the furnishings. Or perhaps, I don’t know if it didn’t come, perhaps it was again ordered or one thing occurred, however I didn’t have any tables or any chairs in our dwelling, we solely had one on the porch. Via just about probably the most intense a part of the pandemic when it was like staying dwelling 24-7 occasions, and that was like an enormous mistake. So this time, although I might’ve reasonably in all probability spent extra time and gotten all vintage tables and issues like that, I simply purchased good tables from Wayfair and referred to as it a day they usually’re achieved, they’re already arrange, they’re already there. And I do know that we’ll have a spot to take a seat in a mattress and the fundamental issues. 

Emma: Yeah, basic items, that is smart. Okay, you simply talked about Wayfair, however you’ve additionally talked about that you just actually like altering your model. It’s gonna be very Knives Out one, Knives Out, initially impressed. So how a lot of the home to this point at the very least, would you say is outdated issues like antiques or one-of-a-kind versus, newer issues such as you talked about shopping for a desk on Wayfair, and the way do you combine the 2, I suppose could be my follow-up query?

Elsie: So I might say it’s been 50/50 to this point, with furnishings and rug. So my great, wonderful father-in-law went with me to the flea market the opposite day. I had three days in Springfield, Emma, truly, we met our mother and father in St. Louis for a Mom’s Day weekend, after which I drove dwelling along with her, after which I had three days to spend. I didn’t actually have a automotive, I simply stayed on the pink home and walked backwards and forwards from the pink home to our new home your complete time. 

Emma: And it rained loads. I used to be like, uh oh.

Elsie: It rained a ton. I had a rain jacket that was good. After which, flew dwelling after three days. So anyway, throughout that point what we did was we undid each single field, which was nice, and removed all of the packing containers, and arrange all of the furnishings. So we did get quantity of latest furnishings, particularly issues with very particular sizes. For instance, bedside tables, eating tables, sofas, and rugs had been principally new. Really, I bought quantity of classic rugs too. I believe classic rugs are actually, very easy to seek out and particular.

Emma: You should purchase these on-line. 

Elsie: Yeah, after which my father-in-law went with me to the flea market and I used to be telling Jeremy all of the stuff I used to be gonna get, however I hadn’t been there in like a month. And he was like, how have you learnt they’re gonna have that stuff? And I used to be like, they all the time do and I simply believed it will be there. 

Emma: She manifested the furnishings.

Elsie: Yeah. But it surely’s true that they all the time do and truly the entry desk that I actually wished, I had seen it earlier than a few occasions in the past, so it had been there for a short while. So I bought a few units of chairs and I believe we bought like 14 chairs and an entry desk and he needed to go to depart and go get his trailer as a result of he didn’t understand how a lot stuff I used to be gonna get, after which we tied all of it down and drove it again and it was similar to such an thrilling, good feeling. And I don’t thoughts in any respect shopping for stuff from Wayfair and Amazon and locations like that 100%, it’s simply sensible and practical. However I liked getting all these chairs with like character and persona and never having to pay delivery, not having to attend, that a part of it was so nice too. Yeah, I believe I’m gonna attempt to maintain going 50/50, I believe it’s stability as a result of I don’t assume each single factor in the home may be vintage, however I type of need it to look that method. I don’t wanna have something which you could inform is new or from Goal, or from Ikea or trendy or no matter. I don’t wanna have something that’s like a brand new pattern. So yeah, you’ll have to inform me if I truly can obtain that, however that’s my intention. 

Emma: Nice. That’ll be my function. I’ll come over and be like, that’s new. And also you’ll be like, no, it’s an vintage. And I’ll be like, okay, that’s new, and also you’ll be like, okay. Yeah, that’s new. That’ll be my guessing recreation. 

Elsie: Yeah, completely. It’s been a lot enjoyable. I had this second a few years in the past the place, I don’t know my model simply modified in a single day. The home I wished to stay in, similar to utterly modified in a single day and I don’t know what, I can’t pinpoint, I might say Knives Out had one thing to do with it, but in addition it was like, do you keep in mind after we learn the ebook enjoying large and I did the longer term self visualization. I noticed myself on this sure type of outdated home with type of like a Knives Out home, a darker, richer, antiquey vibe. And that’s beforehand not a method that I might’ve gravitated towards in any method. So I type of love that I really feel like I’m like residing totally different lives in my design aesthetic. And we simply converted utterly from like Palm Springs, Elsie, to love Knives Out Elsie and there was no in-between. 

Emma: I suppose your Nashville home was the in-between, however it was like turning a nineties home into extra of a Knives Outhouse. However, there are limitations.

Elsie: It had a bit little bit of each, you’re proper although.

Emma: It had a bit each. Okay, nicely what about some procuring ideas? Did you get any vintage procuring ideas? Searching for new stuff ideas. Let’s hear it since you’ve been procuring loads.

Elsie: Sure. I really feel like an expert shopper. It has been fairly enjoyable. It was perhaps loads to do the entire home as a result of I ordered virtually all of the furnishings for the home in a single weekend and it was a bit bit like a mind-bending train. I believe I positively bought procuring fatigue. The place I’ve needed to type of like return and that’s the place I believe the layered strategy is useful as a result of it’s like, simply get the bottom, simply get the issues we’d like, after which there are specific issues the place I do know I can all the time add it later, however yeah my ideas are, initially, I had a personal pin board with every thing saved that I wished to purchase, and I did it for just a few months earlier than. Just about as quickly as I knew that the furnished home sale factor was occurring, I began this pin board of beds, dressers, rugs, all the primary stuff, the issues which can be like costly the place you wanna get it, proper? And I spent a while overthinking these issues and I type of simply don’t fear about overthinking small issues as a result of I simply assume you don’t must. However I believe it’s good to overthink before you purchase a 9×12 rug. After which one other tip, I believe I’ve stated this earlier than, however each time I’m shopping for massive purchases from large field shops, I do that factor the place I purchase coupons from eBay, locations like Anthropology, Creighton barrels, Serena and Lilly, locations like that, there are simply individuals who, they only get, {a magazine} or an advert within the mail they usually put it on eBay, the place you should buy it for, I don’t know, perhaps $10 or $20, and also you get like a 20% off coupon, which may be a whole lot of {dollars} if you’re shopping for main purchases. Like after I purchased my children’ bed room furnishings, it was all from one retailer. So it’s like vital to have coupons for issues like that. In order that’s tip. I don’t assume it’s actually that large of a deal in on a regular basis life if you’re shopping for one or two issues, however if you’re shopping for plenty of stuff it’s tremendous useful. It’s just about like a Black Friday sale or one thing which you could like, make for your self. After which my different recommendation is to make a temper board for each room, which I do know is annoying and I do know is plenty of work. I actually don’t do it for each room, however I do it for the rooms the place I’m having hassle deciding. I believe it’s actually, actually useful, particularly for bedrooms. In case you have a wallpaper sample, a sample in your rug, or a sample in your comforter or quilt that may turn out to be too many patterns actually rapidly. So it’s actually good to only put them multi function place the place you’ll be able to see all of it. And just remember to get the precise stability that you just’re gonna be proud of as a result of particular person gadgets are simply so totally different from how gadgets look collectively in a room. So yeah, these are my chopping ideas. 

Emma: Properly, you talked about you had been on the town for 3 days, and also you’re setting issues up, inform us about organising the home earlier than your loved ones actually will get to see it since you had been right here by your self. 

Elsie: Yeah, I might actually say the toughest I’ve ever labored in my life is sort of a three-day interval. It was so bodily arduous. After the primary day I used to be like, I believe my again is tousled. On the second day, I used to be like, I believe my foot’s tousled. And on the third day, I had one thing flawed with me, I don’t keep in mind.

Emma: And on the third day you rose once more. 

Elsie: I had bruises, it was only a mess. And okay, right here’s the humorous factor, I’ve these security knives, it’s a field cutter that’s a bit safer for like kids and stuff. And I’ll hyperlink it within the present notes as a result of it’s an amazing field cutter. It’s positively all I exploit it cuts via like tape and stuff actually simply, however I truly stabbed myself within the hand with it. And what’s humorous is I had already stabbed myself within the finger with a knife in my kitchen the week earlier than. I truly stabbed myself within the hand with this field knife and it didn’t reduce me in any respect. So I’ve to say it’s an amazing buy. Everybody wants it. It’s not only for children as a result of I simply considered it as safer for youths. In case you by accident depart it out with the children. 

Emma: No, after I noticed it, I used to be like, oh, I can purchase a type of as a result of I all the time get an Amazon field, I simply open it with like our kitchen scissors as a result of they’re similar to proper there within the drawer and I all the time really feel like I’m gonna slice myself. So I used to be like, oh, that field opener seems to be nice. 

Elsie: Sure. So yeah, it was very enjoyable. On the final night time, I painted a gap. There was this Classic cupboard, it had been in Emma’s vacation home and it had been in my pink home storage for like six months, and we introduced it over and I painted it to match the opposite. I’ve made a type of like a short lived kitchen state of affairs with cupboards, as a result of our kitchen had virtually no cupboards in any respect, and we took out the island so as to add a brand new island, however then there was like a ton of wall area throughout. So we determined to only add just a few cupboards from Amazon. And I bought the hidden trash cupboard, in order that was cool. After which we simply had one in our pink home, so I believed I may simply use that and never waste it. So, I simply painted it actual fast and it was so enjoyable. I used to be listening to a teenage romance novel and simply portray actually late at night time on my own and it was enjoyable. So, yeah, it was extraordinarily fulfilling. It was one of the best feeling ever to only work so arduous, so quick. After which after I left, all of the furnishings was unboxed, all of the packing containers had been off the porch. Thanks, Mother and Dad. The one factor that I didn’t get achieved was hanging curtains, so I’m nonetheless looking for a poor sole to assist me with that. However I imply, actually I bought fairly far. So I used to be thrilled and I positively suggest it in the event you’re transferring right into a home in the event you can simply give your self a few days. And I did have, I’ll say a few paid helpers, those who I paid to assist me all day, daily so we may get extra achieved. 

Emma: Yeah as a result of that stuff’s heavy. You want somebody that will help you transfer one thing like you’ll be able to’t do it by yourself. 

Elsie: And my father-in-law was the most important badass of all time. Yeah, he mustn’t have let me know that he has that trailer. Don’t you assume that’s a nasty life selection?

Emma: I used to be like, Ooh, I believe that is now his job, he’ll see along with her flea market fines and I’m similar to, nicely, good luck Gary. Hit him Father’s Day reward. 

Elsie: Anyway, it was completely price it, it was so enjoyable and I can’t wait to maneuver in and present the children, we left cute issues of their rooms to make them really feel at dwelling. And we booked a cleansing two days earlier than we transfer in. So, that was fairly good. 

Emma: Yeah. It’s gonna be nice. 

Elsie: I’m so nervous. 

Emma: Nah. It’s gonna be nice. It’s already arrange. It’s gonna be clear. It’s gonna be nice. 

Elsie: Aw. Properly, I’m excited, and yeah, for anybody who has an opportunity to promote a house furnished, my recommendation is to go for it and do it. Undoubtedly communicate up if there are one or two issues that you just similar to love a lot that you already know aren’t replaceable. I’m not saying to promote like your favourite vintage factor or a household heirloom or one thing. However no, I do assume it’s good to study the life lesson, that nearly every thing is replaceable. And actually, you can purchase an entire new home of stuff in a weekend and it’s okay, it’s not that large of a deal. So I don’t know, I really feel like that’s reminder that crucial issues in our dwelling. It’s actually not, the books, books are wonderful, however actually it’s the reminiscences of studying them and making stuff, it doesn’t actually matter. If all of your books are gone, you’ll be able to simply get extra.

Emma: Yeah. You may get extra and write new ones yearly, it’s magic.

Elsie: It’s magical and I wish to acquire books until I die.

Emma: Yeah, identical new ones too. I really like shopping for new books as they arrive out. It’s a lot enjoyable.

Elsie: Sure. My pre-ordering is fairly aggressive proper now.

Emma: I really like pre-ordering as a result of then it’s like typically I type of forgot that I pre-ordered it after which it simply comes within the mail because the ebook comes out, and I’m like, sure, previous self has stunned future self and I’m so blissful. Then you definitely like have the ebook proper because it comes out and it’s so cool. Okay, let’s do responsible pleasure, treasure. Do you may have a responsible pleasure for us? 

Elsie: So my responsible pleasure treasure this time is Danny Loves Pasta and I don’t assume I’ve talked about him on the podcast earlier than, have I? I don’t assume so. 

Emma: I don’t assume so. I’m not on the podcast. 

Elsie: So, initially, I simply wanna plug, Danny Loves Pasta’s cookbook, which releases on June twenty seventh. It’s a pasta cookbook. It’s a novelty, in the event you like, Rainbow Pasta, issues like that, cute, lovely. If that’s your type of factor like these movies on Instagram and TikTok are type of like my whole soul. And it simply brings me a lot pleasure. So it’s that type of factor and anyway, he made a cookbook. It seems to be very lovely. It’s very rainbowy. However the different factor I wished to say about him is that he’s the explanation I rejoined TikTok. So I deleted my TikTok in precisely March of 2020 when the pandemic started, and I felt like as a mother, however working mother with two children at dwelling, the strain, I believe lots of people at the moment had been like, we’re staying dwelling. It is best to blow up your TikTok and I used to be similar to, oh my God I can barely survive proper now. So I deleted my TikTok for 2 years and didn’t take a look at it in any respect or log in for 2 years. However then Keeley despatched me these, Danny Loves Pasta movies the place he was making Harry Potter home scarves pasta, and he bought me to rejoin and I truly do take pleasure in TikTok once more now. So I really feel like I’ve to offer him credit score for that, that he did one thing so particular and joyful that he made an entire app that may be oftentimes poisonous and annoying. He made it joyful and a contented, great place.

Emma: They need to make it like a button in TikTok and Instagram the place like in the event you rejoin, you’ll be able to put within the title of the one that impressed you to rejoin, after which they ship them 20 bucks or one thing, or 50 bucks. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? 

Elsie: Actually, yeah. I really feel prefer it was particular as a result of I didn’t assume I used to be ever gonna rejoin. 

Emma: And then you definitely noticed that Harry Potter pasta and also you’re like, nicely, okay.

Elsie: I knew that there was a contented world on the market. Okay, what’s again yours? 

Emma: My responsible pleasure treasure is so random. I used to be displaying Elsie earlier than we began recording, however I discussed just a few episodes in the past about how I bought hypnotized for not biting my nails and I’ve been doing nice with that, which is superior. And anyway, I not too long ago purchased myself this cuticle oil and that’s my responsible pleasure treasure that I wanna discuss to you about. So, this one is like $4 on Amazon. I can hyperlink it within the present notes, however principally what I like about it’s it’s cuticle oil, I like that, however it’s actually small. It’s the dimensions of a pen so you’ll be able to maintain it in your purse. I maintain mine on my desk so it’s formed like a pen, after which on one finish, it has a brush. It’s similar to in the event you ever noticed the dazzle stick that we talked about, how we clear our jewellery. It has a brush on one finish, so that you simply take the cap off after which it makes a bit clicking sound as you push the oil via the comb. I’m gonna do it for you. I don’t know in the event you can hear that, however, so it makes this little clicking sound after which the oil comes up via the comb and then you definitely simply brush it in your cuticles and I like it. I believe it’s one thing to do. I imply, I really like the cuticle oil, however I believe it’s like the click sound.

Elsie: My cuticles are I believe that they’re naturally a bit bit above common, however they’re, so far as taking good care of them, I might say it’s under common. So I can do higher, I may attempt. Okay, so I suppose let’s go to a joke or a truth with Nova. Hey, Nova, this week, do you may have a joke for us or a truth?

Nova: Joke. 

Elsie: Okay. 

Nova: What does a peanut go, like? 

Elsie: What does he go like?
