Well the living room painting and batten installation was a great success! I love the color & decided to keep it to two walls in the living room instead of making everything one pallet I also decided to keep one of the brown accent walls for some pizazz. Next weekend I plan to take care of the small hallway- nook area the leads into our bedroom and paint over the brown that surrounded the pantry door.
Next weekend I am also on the hunt for curtain/pillow fabric. After searching all the stores in Cypress for something to complete my windows I concluded that sewing my own will be the way to go unless by chance I stop by West Elm and something blows my mind. I have sold myself on a paisley since it naturally compliments Ikat. I want something that will compliment my ultra fabulous rug but isn't too granny looking. SO I shall see what I come up with on next weekends search.
The hallway/ nook us also an exciting project. Since I collected several different paint sample trying to decided on a living room color, I have plenty to choose from. I am thinking a stripe pattern. I also purchased a new walls sconce for the nook as well. It's an out door fixture, but it's almost exactly what I wanted, it just needs a couple of modifications.
Also, I am still waiting on my free "coffee table." This weekend I found a pretty rad table, it was very SILVER. I refrained from making the purchase and found two hockey books for the Mister while I was at Tuesday Morning. They were 1.99 each and totally make his day.
All in all it was a good weekend & I can not wait until next.
