sorry i have bee such a slacker this summer. i mean, i KNEW that my posting would be sporadic, but even i am a little surprised at how quickly the time has gone by and how few posts i have written! just know that a lack of positing is a result of busy, fun days with my kids!
now, in reality, it is *like week 20 of the nursery, but lets pretend it's week 4, shall we? this room is actually FINISHED, and i had the room photographed yesterday by sara boulter. i should get the pictures this weekend, and WILL have then up next week. (even though i am on vacation in florida next week! yay!)
this "week" (ha! ha!) i wanted to show y'all four very fun, very awesome projects that my client tackled for this nursery.
lets git down to biz-niss!
PROJECT ONE: pendant makeover
SO, we took this simple, $30 pendant from home depot....
and used some liquid gold to gild the inside.
here is how it looks in the room!
it was so brilliant, we didn't change a thing!
and...a look at it in the finished room!
PROJECT THREE: adding gold accent on ikea crib legs
we were also going to add some grasscloth to the outside panels of the crib, but ultimately decided against it...sometimes budget and time constraints need to be considered. you know, that boring stuff that us normal people have to deal with!!
here is a closer look a the leg detail:
PROJECT FOUR: making a wall mounted articulating sconce
our original thought was to buy an industrial or vintage wall mounted sconce, but we were having trouble finding one that wouldn't break the bank.
my client found THIS genius tutorial, and used it to create her own light!
i can't wait to show you the finished project!
i will post later this week about the art and drapes...if you follow me on instagram, you already got a peek!
