Well I completely missed Week 3 and I have to tell you that I’ve been slipping but not quite off track. I got a couple of things done within the last 2 weeks and I can tell you that I have a to-do that would make you blush.
I painted the walls Benjamin Moore’s Marilyn’s Dress, its the most prettiest and refreshing color. It has a blue in it but its still a very neutral color. When my husband came home he gave me a sad face because he said that he missed the orange! I couldn’t believe my ears…Ah well I’m so happy its gone. Take a look at what it looks like now.
The lighting is pretty bad so you may not get a good view of it but once the lighting has changed it should show up better
I put my West Elm bench in its place but I will making a custom cushion to go on top of it and although it will have the rustic look the cushion will give it a more refined look and will go with the rest of the room.
I simply love the rawness of this bench and I think the color of the wood goes so well with the paint and will work perfectly with my table.
Here’s a better view of the blue… I simply love it and would like to pair it with some black and white contemporary abstract art. This room will also be accented with yellow… its going to truly be a happy combination of colors in this space.
If you remember on week 1 I have a 3 piece buffet , which is also from Ikea Besta. I disconnected all three and will leave 2 of them in this corner to preserve the storage for my wine glasses and china. I was actually looking to thrift something but I wasn’t getting lucky and when I was painting and move these 2 in the corner, I thought with some good ol hacking I could make this piece look great!
So thats what I will be doing, hacking this piece and giving it a brand new look.
I’m also going to see if I can do something to make the radiator disappear. I’m still trying to figure that out.
So here are the items that I’m left to do:
- Find new lighting
- 2 new/repurposed dining chairs
- Fabric and Cushion for bench
- Repurpose Ikea besta buffet
- Art work
- New Curtains and pillows for the bench
- New Lamp for buffet
