Weekend Update : October 1-2

Weekend Update!
I picked up more white Ritva curtains at Ikea with a rod on Friday. I added some navy grosgrain to the sides and bottom of the curtains to match the roman shades I made for the windows on the other side of the house (same room). I need to get a sheer panel or some bamboo shades? to put behind the curtains.

You can also see the color I decided to paint the chairs – I love how it pops with the blue wall! Still haven’t repainted the table.

The island doors got more coats of paint and are almost done and ready to go back on the cabinet.

Master Bedroom :
We started installing faux-paneling in the bedroom, we got two walls done – 1 to go! This was more of a challenge than we anticipated since our walls are apparently anything but straight, I guess that’s the territory with an 90+ year old house. I’ll hopefully start painting sometime this week. The color above (which I realized I never posted about) is BM Kendall Gray. We still have to install the crown moulding.  All the moulding and area below the chair rail will be painted white. 

Random :
In between the thousand trips outside to cut the moulding we left the door open a few times…..and ended up with a squirrel in our house. He was sneaky and fast; we *think* he’s gone.

It was also chilly enough Sunday morning to warrant a fire in the fireplace (our first in the new house) and it was lovely!

How was your weekend?


  1. Your place looks great! Can't wait to see all of the "after" work!

  2. I am seriously loving the green chairs! They look fantastic!

  3. Where did you find the silverware prints? And I am kind of dying a little over that navy wall.. love :)

  4. Some very cute chairs there! I am happy to see someone go bold with color. I just painted my front door a lime green shade and love it so much!
