K......this is a Monday....haven't posted in a week.....update.
I attended Haven [a DIY blogger conference] on Friday and Saturday. I know what you are thinking...."why Sherry you are not such a diy girl". That would be correct. In fact my friend Amanda said she is more of a DIFM person...[do it for me]. I had to agree.
But I like meeting people and being "in the loop" as they say. Plus it was less than a 1/2 mile from my house.
I did not come across one single mean person. It was like they did background checks on all of us before they let us sign up. Good thing I am in witness protection....
And....I saw these books.
Gorgeous covered books. I mean how fast can we cover a book in that thick linen huh?
Next up is a little trip to the Home Decorators Store about 25 minutes from my house. Sometimes it is good to get a review of things.
I liked this gray stained round coffee table.
Sat in this chair and it was pretty comfy. I like that the back is tall.
Sat in this one also....same deal.
This pic is a little blurred....It was probably because it was getting close to happy hour.....but it was burlap with a hand blocked paisley. And a down insert. I can't find it online:(
Again...for the price great look.
And this was awesome.....
If you can't find them at a flea market to paint yourself ....
Of course I would change the shade but I liked this lamp. Have I mentioned that I am a "big lamp person?"
NO! This was not at HD but across the street at Crate and Barrel. I am specking for a large room with a Nantucket feel....
You might have seen the Thibaut wallpaper that went up last week [on my Instagram] [sherryhdesigns] for the same project.
Whoa.....we aren't done yet.....I had a few questions on the blog last week...
This is the fabric I used for the bedroom makeover
Also...[from the bedroom makeover]the metal baskets under the console came from Homegoods.
A few questions about the slipcover.
The fabric was a linen/cotton blend.
Here is a close up. I cut the yardage in half and washed it in cold water with no detergent. I dried it 1/2 way and draped it over my DR table while it was damp to finish drying. To reduce the wrinkles some I re-rolled it on the tube. That's it. I lucked out to find this fabric as it was pretty thick so you can't see the stripes through it. Also...you might hate me for this..... but I got it for 10.00@yd.
I saw this Clarence House fabric the other day at ADAC.....Color: Aimee. Linen/jute blend. I am kind of smitten with it.
A few other Clarence House....
I think this post is long enough and your attention might be waning....I have a house to clean and pictures to take for a "favorite room" guest post later this week.
