Who Hung a Wicked Awesome Chandelier?

This Girl🙍🏻👏

Ok you guys!  It was SO HARD to chose a chandelier for this room because the selection at Lamps Plus is expansive and seemingly endless. I’m talking hours…ok…more like days worth of deliberating on this decision.

In the end this spectacular Hudson Valley Buckingham Chandelier made the cut. I was attracted to it’s early Art Deco feel and the fact that the brass/ivory combo would stand out in my blue room.  I liked it online, but I LOVED it in real life💕.  Added bonus…I believe it is on sale this week too. NICE!!!!

I was thrilled to realize that the arms are adjustable.  I can mix it up for every dinner party I throw 🎉 💃 😜.

Who Made Some Killer DIY Art?

This Girl🙍🏻👏

Ok…So it may have taken me the better part of two days and at one point I almost started crying (imagine me dropping and breaking it while trying to hang the beast by myself…not a fun moment), but I had all of the supplies in my garage and I think its quite the unique piece.  My family fails to see the beauty in this masterpiece, but I’m feelin’ the love.  What do you think?  Lay it on me folks and leave those comments at the bottom👇.

I’m not giving a full tutorial, but I used backer board, plaster of Paris (for texture), left over latex paint, trim, and long upholstery staples.  After painting the art I spend hours trying to cut the trim to the crazy angles (#notamathmajor).  I then set it all upside down and stapled the trim on from the back before nailing it directly to the wall through the corners of the art.  If that made any sense then I applaud you👏.  Otherwise, please feel free to contact me for more deets.

Not bad, eh? I especially like how much money I spent…zero dinero.

Who Craigslisted Some “Sick” Chairs?

This Girl🙍🏻👏

I got this set of six silk chairs off of Craigslist and I am kind of in love with the shell back and upholstered legs. I bought these 80’s beauties from a 1st Dibs dealer in Boston who decided that they didn’t make the cut.  Fine by me, and I gladly took them off of his hands for $20 a chair.

While obviously Karl Springer inspired, they were apparently custom built for a woman in Boston.  Check out the ad…Can you believe that they each use to have capes…I’m not making this up 😱😳👇.

Up until today I have been trying to think of the perfect color to dye these chairs, but I have to admit that I am starting to  like them ivory.  What do you think?

Things Left to Do

Reupholster this Sofa

The fabric is in and I’m in the throes of  upholstering this unique piece.  I can’t wait to show you this statement making terrazzo velvet from Spoonflower.com (Ashley IG @2birdstonedesign).

The Fringe

I LOVE me a sofa with fringe!  What can I say, it adds sophistication and drama to a space.  In this case it’s also going to add functionality.  You see, the sofa is too short for the rest of the pieces in the room.  I’m going to cut some wood to form a sturdy addition to the bottom of each leg and then use the fringe to cover up my handy work 🔨 .  So call me Miles Redd (I mean that would be a very high compliment indeed!) but I’m going to add this gorgeous fringe from Fringe Market to complete my dream sofa. I have sent in a sample of the terrazzo velvet and they have offered to custom match the color for me.  You guys, this company is amazing.

Wallpaper the Top Half of the Walls

Jungle Tigers Bright Wallpaper – It’s in and installed but I’m not giving away all of my secrets this week!  I love this designe by Ashley Peterson (IG: @2birdstone Spoonflower: Twobirdstone)  If you want to shop the rest of this Spoonflower collection click HERE.

Let’s Review the Plan

Hmmmm….It’s funny how you can start out with a mood board but end up with something quite differet.  The wallpaper colorways, the rug, the bench, the sofa color, the chair colors, and the chandelier …so pretty much everything… has changed, but the vibe is quite similar.  The Bold and the Beautiful!  Such drama and suspense 😜.

TO DO LIST

Add furniture

Buy and cut lumber

Buy and paint HIGH GLOSS paint (probably blue…Though purple has crossed my mind)

Add molding to the lower wall

Wallpaper upper wall with the tiger wallpaper (Spoonflower)

Upholster striped chairs- Change the plan: Paint them Pink

Sew fringe on sofa (Fringe Market)

Decide upon, order, and hang chandelier (Lamps Plus)

Upholster sofa in terrazzo

Style it with pillows etc (Roostery)

Optional:

Wallpaper ceiling (ain’t no body got time for this one)

Wallpaper entryway

Build built-in shelves- not going to happen

Paint dining room shell-chairs

Paint masterpieces 1 more to go

Sleep and good personal hygiene- let’s be honest…That’s not happening
