Odds and Ends

Last week I had every intention of posting each day, but life got in the way.  Additionally, my husband was in India for the week.  I might be more excited about his homecoming than he is.

On top of single parenting I am juggling a million and one other things.  I know every person's life has challenges... so no excuses.

Here are a few design related things I am up to.

I am enjoying a few reupholstered chairs recently delivered. 

I found this pair of chairs for $100!  They need some paint and new upholstery, but have amazing possibility.  My husband is thrilled I have even more furniture with no intended place ;-)

At another thrift shop I picked up this milk glass hobnail vase and this Chinoiserie figurine for a bargain.

Check out this amazing peacock blue velvet.  I plan to recover an ottoman with it.

I also scored this mirrored/faux bamboo frame for peanuts - a fun little project is planned.

Additionally, I am under the gun to complete the design for a bathroom renovation.  It's taking a long time, but should be well worth the wait.

  1. Those chairs are gorgeous and look good as new! Is the first one upholstered with Schumacher's Imperial Trellis? I was finding something on our site the other day and stumbled across it. It's beautiful!

  2. I saw it all "in person." It looks fabulous. Great job!
