SOME UPDATES

They are done tiling the master bath...


 I painted the mirror for the entryway...

{I've decided not to use the settee anymore,  it's too big for the space}

and I painted the walls white.
{The door is getting painted a high gloss black}

Projects are coming along well!  

Have a great weekend!

I'M DONE PAINTING THE COFFEE TABLE!

Remember my Restore coffee table find?

I finally finished painting it and is now sitting in our family room...


It took me 3 days to finish.
First, I lightly sanded and applied one coat of primer.
{I used Zinsser Bulls eye 1-2-3 primer}

Then I used 2 coats of Rustoleum protective enamel oil-based paint in gloss black.
{Thanks Bethany!}

{ I waited 24 hours in between coats} 

  I love how it turned out!


Don't you?

DENY DESIGNS SHOWER CURTAINS

While searching for a shower curtain for the kids' bathroom,  I came across DENY designs.
I think a pop of color against the white subway tiles would be nice and fun for the kids.

Here are my favorites...



Bird in Flowers





All shower curtains are by a Venezuelan artist, Valentina Ramos.

I think I like Aaron the best!  Do you have a favorite?

KIDS' BATHROOM UPDATE

They finished tiling the shower surround!
The room looks so much bigger now that the soffit is gone!

{I am loving the shampoo alcove}

The question now is do I use white or light gray grout?

ANOTHER SCORE!

While browsing through craigslist the other day,  I found this...

{lucite and brass floor lamp}

Back-story:
The listing was for "4.5Ft NEW gold colored lamp".  The seller's image was not great so I emailed him...

Me:  Is the floor lamp brass and acrylic?
Seller:  Yes, it is!
Me:  {getting excited}  Is it in good working condition?  I'd like to purchase it if it is.
Seller:  This lamp has never been used.  I took it out of the box to take a picture
Me:  When is a good time to pick it up?
Seller:  Tomorrow, I'll bring it to work so it's nearer for you.
Me:  Great, thanks!

 I googled "brass and lucite floor lamp" and look what I found...

The only thing I noticed is this small stain, I'm not sure what it is


Me: ok
Seller:  I'm not selling it to get rich but I just want to be fair.  I'll take $5 off.
Me:  (feeling guilty now) Ok, thanks!

I'm not sure how much lobel modern sold theirs but I bet my bottom dollar it wasn't
$20!  SCORE!
