A Little Bit of Randomness…

Not lots going on now, but the near future is looking very fun…

I can’t believe Easter is next weekend!  I’m going to have some very preppy boys…wearing ties

I found these on Etsy

Baby Boy's Bow Tie - Lime Green Gingham - Grass Green and White Checks

Could anything be cuter, so many to choose from and she has matching neckties…  I am going to try my hand at making a couple myself…bow ties for the wee ones and a necktie for the pre-teen…

My friend/client emailed me and is ready to get going on the dining room…yippee!

First, she found this fabulous ottoman for her family room…

wicker ottoman

for the dining room I’m hoping she picks one of these…

A Little Surprise Inside…

First…

Don’t forget to enter the room design giveaway here…Winner will be announced on Wed. 3/28!!

Second…

I’ve added before pictures to my friend/clients after post here…be sure to check it out

Now on to business…

I have decided to keep the campaign dresser as is…for now.  Honestly I can’t think of a color I’d like to paint it…

Since the drawers have contact paper in them I’ll be removing that and painting the inside of the drawers…

I saw this over at The Aestate

How fun will that be to see every time I open the drawer??  This project needs to happen ASAP since the dresser I have in the kitchen now is quickly falling apart…

Just the After…

**Update…I’ve got before pictures!!

I’m too excited/impatient to wait for a before photo from my friend so it’s just the after folks…

It all started with wanting to change the kitchen color…we all know how that goes, when one room changes it creates a domino effect for the whole house…

I couldn’t be happier with the way my friend/client’s home turned out…hope you enjoy it as much as I do  she does…

Before…

I found these Reader Digest books at an estate sale for $2 each, the covers were so fun and pretty…we put them to good use...all nine of them!!

115

I only bought a few  accessories, the rest she already owned…they just needed to be moved around.  She loves the simple styling of the bookcases…

Fabulous…

I think Caitlin Wilson is pretty damn fabulous…her style, her fabrics…

but what I think is the most fabulous of all is this gold mirror top table…

I am coveting it!!  I’ve been wanting a new side table to go better with my nesting tables

I hit up good old reliable O.co to see if they would have something that would in any way,  shape or form resemble the above table…

Lookie what I found…

Brass-plated Iron Mirrored Round SideTable (India)

Now I have to convince the hubby I can’t live without it…

Twins…

I was looking through One Kings Lane last night and saw this pillow

Santana 26

26 x 26 $99 (retail $175)…Sold Out

Something about it seemed eerily familiar.  Then I remembered…I saw this exact fabric on 6th Street Design

The fabric is Waverly, sold at fabric.com

So, no need to cry that the One Kings Lane pillow is sold out or that you couldn’t afford it even if it was available…you can have a $99 pillow for only $19.98 a yard!!

Just a Little Peek…

I was hoping to have a full blown post about my friend/client’s house, but there are still some finishing touches to be made…things to hang, blinds to be installed, lampshades to buy… yada, yada, yada…

The good thing is she’s having a party on Friday night so I’ll be able to go back next week for some great pictures to share…

For now, here’s a little taste of what to expect, the mood board of the design…

I Can See That…

My hall bath was featured on Better After Friday with some other lovely rooms…

While perusing Pinterest over the weekend, I saw this…

A little harsh I must say…

Let this be a lesson to all…if you feel the overwhelming urge to comment on a photo, be mindful of what you say…everyone can see it!

Good Weekend… Busy Week…

I was able to take the day off on Saturday and run to Nell Hills, a store I never get to go. It’s not hideously far from my house but it’s not really close either…I went to go look for fabric for a friend/client…and of course found some for another friend/client… and myself…

Anyway, I absolutely love everything in the store, it’s a mix of high/low…

Here’s some phone pics (crappy of course) of some things that struck my fancy…

I wish I had some photos that better represents the store…I guess I’ll just have to find a reason to go back…

Tuesday I’m going over to help my friend/client get her house “styled”…I can’t wait to see how it all turns out…
