You want an update on the kitchen makeover.....well here it is.....picture me in the corner crying.
Not really but hot damn I did go a little crazy over the weekend trying to figure out what to keep and what to put away as far as accessories go. I am trying to EDIT the crap out of my place and get rid of what I am not using.
My friend Jan has someone coming up in October to run a yard sale for us so we can sit there and drink Mimosa's. The ultimate service right?
I mean think about it.....I am going from turquoise and a bit shabby to black and white and not so shabby. Complete turnaround.
So to say I have stuff is an understatement. And of course you have to put it somewhere so you can see what you are doing without all of the clutter right?
I just didn't want you to think I had it all together:) This room has become somewhat of a dumping ground.
But there are a few updates....
My curtains got installed. What a difference full scrim panels made to make this area feel more grown up!
I got the shelves stained [Min Wax Classic Gray] and that is where the fun stopped. Oh yes....more shelves to style and these proved to be a real challenge.
Functional + awesome right?
After I finished my husband said "boy those look kinda full". When your husband who knows didely squat about design makes a statement like that you know you're in trouble......
Needless to say I will be tweaking those suckers!
I can tell you that I am hard in love with my backsplash. This is a hand painted 5 x 5 in stock tile from Renaissance Tile grouted with a light gray from Home Depot. I die every time I look at it.
I am slowly getting the bookcases done.
With one more peek at my Currey and Co sconces.
The guy who made my cabinet doors made these barstools for me.....One gray stained oak and one black stained. The top is maple....
I can't decide what color.....
So the countdown to the photoshoot is 10 days away. Whats left? Install the faucet, some hardware, wallpaper, CLEAN and in general.....agonize.
My friend Ally had her home published in the fall issue of Atlanta's HOME and it's pretty awesome!
