I didn't leave the house most of yesterday and all of today - I've been busy - check out my progress:
Closer shots of my new pillows from HomeGoods:
Here are the 'befores' of both pieces:
The console still looks kind of messy to me - it was hard to paint around the adhesive for the mirrored sections. But I'll live with it a while and see how I feel.
The nightstand...sigh... I started with Annie Sloan in Paris Gray...then I decided I was going to add some Valspar black enamel...that looked too faux-y to me. I tried a coat of Annie Sloan in Napoleonic Blue. Yeah, no.
So, then I tried a coat of Valspar in City Storm (leftover from my Art cabinet ). Then, I had serious painter's remorse and wanted to strip it all off (the paint that is)...I'm leaving it for now...mainly because once I styled it I actually kind of like it...we'll see...if it's not nailed down I just might change it :)
Looks more blue than I expected but i'm going with it. I love how my new trinket box works with the styling. My fishnet-covered tissue box even looks good :) (if I do say so myself).
Here's a another shot of the full room with both nightstands. They don't match and I kind of dig that.
This next project isn't that exciting but I spent for-ever on it and have the blisters to prove it - I insisted on changing my towel rack to this lovely version from Threshold (Target). Yeah - check me out - that's drilling through the tile people. Not easy.
Have you checked out Bauble Bar yet? I LOVE their jewelry. Yes, I make my own...and I buy vintage...and I buy fine stuff from Jared...and costume from Bauble Bar. So? Chicks love jewelry :)
