Due to my design A.D.D., I’ve been tackling 4 home projects at the same time. (bedroom, guest bedroom, dining room and bathroom.) While none are near finished, I thought it would be fun to show snippets of some new acquisitions and changes.
Lucite Desk Chair
I picked up this little lady at my favorite used furniture warehouse, Z Brothers
. Just over the Walt Whit bridge into South Jersey, this place is a gold mine, chock full of mid-century beauties. Don’t be daunted by their high asking prices, either. They wanted $300 for the chair, and I got it for $150. Non-Locals, they are also on Ebay
There is alot going on in my home office- black walls, bright pink desk, daybed full of pillows- it is to be my little bohemian hideaway. I was looking for a chair that would be interesting, sculptural, yet not take up a lot of room, visually.
I considered buying a ghost chair for about 30 seconds, and then I decided I wanted something more unique and vintage. I grabbed this one and I couldn’t be happier. She’s upholstered! She’s clear! She’s comfortable! She’s on Wheels. We are besties.
check out that back side…
Sigh, if only all purchases could be this rewarding. This brings me to…
I thought I scored the deal of the century when I scored the Victoria Queen Upholstered headboard on Overstock
for $300. Double nailheads? Yes please. Neutral, natrual fabric? Great.
It’s a piece of crap. There are three visible seams in the fabric that protrude out awkwardly. And maybe I’m being picky, but the nailheads look crooked to me.
I’m so upset. This isn’t tailored; it’s sloppy. This is not the statement I wanted to make. But I’ve thrown away the box and it’s already installed. And to add insult to injury, it’s on sale today for $100 less than I bought it.
So, Help! Can I make it work with the right bedding and pillows??
Please, I beg you, I need advice. Do whatever I can to return it? Or deal with it?
and to add to my anxiety, let me show you …
Our one and only Bathroom
The ceiling of our bathroom got ripped out this weekend, and I’ve been having to deal with the aftermath of this:
It’s a bit cleaner now, but we have NO ceiling lights, in fact we have zero ceiling. Try putting your makeup on by the light of a dim lamp. Grrr. Lets just say I haven’t been looking my hottest this week.
All of this would be worth it if I was getting a sparkly new bathroom, but all I’m getting is an insulated ceiling. Talk about underwhelming.
Any who, that’s all for now. Next week I’m gonna show off a few things happening in the dining room!
