Where were we last week? Oh, my chairs fiasco. Well, they aren't so bad. I learned that the clear coat needs to be lightly sprayed on. So I sanded the bubbled parts, and touched up. As of today, the chairs are painted and ready to be upholstered. My room hasn't progressed much as I was away for the weekend celebrating my baby girl's upcoming wedding at a bridal shower hosted by my two amazing sister-in-laws! This week will be madness as I try to finish the space.
This paint colour is going onto the walls, Savana Oaks from Cloverdale Paint.
It is painted on other walls in the house and I quite like it. It manages to tie in some of the finishes that I am not redoing, like the baseboards. The landlords had the house professionally painted and used a designer to choose colours. The designer did a fabulous job with the exception of the dining room. It was just to dark. So hopefully this colour will lighten things up. Then I hope to paint the dining table with Cloud White. I am still so nervous about it....
Hoping to find some more blue and white chinoiserie ceramics. And some lamps?
Thinking this bowl from Bombay and Company.
I am truly winging this space, finding things as I go along. It's all about budget (it's the baby girl's wedding this summer!)
