CAMPAIGN

Wow, the expedit didn't get any love from you guys.
I feel the same way so I got the campaign!
I couldn't pass up a good deal.  $80 for both units!  That's more than 50% less than the expedit(not to mention all the baskets you have to buy).
I also like the fact that there are open shelving for my books and tsotchkes and close storage for my not so pretty stuff.

I also like the extra desk space.  I think this will be my sewing area{since I'm an expert sewer now ;) }

Now, the big question is what color paint?
I'm leaning towards a neutral.  White or Gray.  Maybe both.
Don't worry,  I'll incorporate color in other ways.

You know what I'm doing this weekend!

Since I"m a new reader I had to do a little back reading to find out where this was going. I had to laugh when I saw it because I'm currently in the process of setting up my "Mom Cave" in the basement. It's my little office where I can work and have some storage for ME. I love, love, love this new piece and say go soft gray. Did you get the bergere?

Oooo I love it!! Glad you went with this special piece as opposed to the Ikea one (not that there's anything wrong with the Expedit- I really like it!) I can't wait to see this in a soft pretty neutral!

Grey with brass will be killer!!

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

Wahoo! You will make it awesome. I think the grey would look totally fab. Maybe a pattern with the white on the background of the bookshelves?

Yay! I knew you would choose the campaign set. What a super deal. I think you can't go wrong with white or gray (whichever works best in your space). Cannot wait to see the final result.

Grey with gold hardware ~ my favorite if we get a vote!

Tiffany Leigh Interior Design said...

I vote white, although I seem to be the only one! I think that white will really allow your accessories to shine. I love white.

Haha, I was just at Salvation Army and saw those. Got a little draw leaf Scandinavian table for myself. Enjoy!

Nancy said...

Great job! I vote for a medium gray color. Good luck, hope the re-do goes well.

I love the medium gray but since your office will be in a basement and these pieces are so large, I think I'd go with white or a lighter gray.
