I’m FED UP with the chaos that is my home, so I’ve given myself a June deadline to pull it together. It feels good to have a date… it really motivates me to design and execute. And when I’m in the design zone, I don’t stop for nuttin’. Think obsessed, vigorous and effective. Which is what I’ll need to be done by June!
I have big plans for a kitchen renovation, but that probably wont be until the fall at the earliest. My focus right now is the interior design of the other rooms in the house, plus a quickie update to the kitchen. Everything is like 75-90% there, but not quite “finished.” My focus is pulling that last bit together and making it all shine.
Today I’m sharing an update (DIY!) I just finished in my living room. I was tired of my old ottoman, so after a little scheming I decided to create my own lucite ottoman. This project was inexpensive, easy, fun and I think the result is damn sexy.
Like many of you out there, I have a bit of a lucite fetish. I felt LUCITE would be perfect for my ottoman legs because I already have a lot of wood and metal furniture and didn’t want to repeat those materials again. Unfortunately lucite furniture and leg parts are expensive! I am too fickle and cheap with my own stuff, so I found another way to source lucite. Turns out Wayfair sells a lucite ottoman for under $200. Since the ottoman size worked well in my room, I decided to buy their version and recover the top myself.
