Week 4 of the ORC.
I hope you will forgive me for not having more to show you today. Last weekend when I should have been working on my project, I was [as you know] grieving. I just did not have the energy or focus to get some of my projects done.
But being the magician I am...... you are in luck cause I have grabbed a few images and tried to edit the hell out of them to complete my assignment.
I hate letting people down:(
That just means that next week will be epic.
We finished painting the drop leaf table [ it isn't styled yet] but not the coffee table. The 9 x 12 seagrass rug arrived from Overstock.
The "bunny" painted the bookshelves and I started styling last week.
You can see that the tape is still on the wall....We are such impatient fools.
The curtains were hung a while ago but I thought I would have more time to get better pictures. That will teach me to procrastinate.
The hide [from Scott's Antique Market] was layered on top of the seagrass. One of the reasons why the coffee table hasn't been painted is I am still trying to figure what the hell I want it to look like. If we win the lottery by next week then you can be sure we will use this for firewood and I won't have to wrack my damaged brain another second.
We also started throwing pillows around. This is probably not the final display so don't get attached.
I promise next week "bookshelf styling" and soooo much more. Since this is such a dark room I am having trouble taking good pictures and I need to do it early in the morning for the best sun.
Again, I have to say thank you. I know how busy everyone is with kids, school, work, fall festivals, design, and just plain life. Taking time to reach out to me with your own stories of losing your pet has left me utterly astonished. It was a feeling of being wrapped in a warm quilt, drinking a cup of tea while someone rubbed your head.
I don't care what "Martha" said.....bloggers are the best!
Please take the time to visit all the hard working ORC participates today. I know they would really appreciate it.
