So guess what?
I mentioned on Facebook that while the main projects are now finished and the rooms are all livable that nothing is completely ready for final, finished, and fully decorated reveals. That led me to suggest showing what we do have done in each room and detailing the plans for finishing them up.
So welcome to the first in our series of Progress and Plans posts.
The kids love the “rainbows” made by the new sconces! I can’t say I mind them either!
A sheer floral scarf from Walmart adds privacy while casting pretty muted tones. I can’t resist pretty floral patterns! I picked up a second scarf to hang if we decide we want 2 panels.
The linen shower curtain came from World Market. I wanted to tone down the white just a bit and play off of some of the wood/bronze tones in the space.
The brightly framed cottage garden crewelwork was bought on Etsy. The yarn is faded but one of the flowers now shares the exact same lavender shade as the vanity!
I painted the vanity in Dried Lavender Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. LOVE the color!! So happy it looks awesome with the gray dot tiles. The finish is already spotting on the top since I only used hemp oil and wax. New plan is to add one more coat of paint and then seal with an oil based topcoat. Oh how I was trying to avoid that!
A tension rod mounted bronze tub storage unit is working perfectly for our family of 5 (so far).
So now, on to the plans.
1. Towel storage: Our plans include a board and peg rail. My husband picked up two wood spools that are slightly larger than standard shaker pegs. Cut in half they will make 4 nice size pegs. Hopefully we can find one more similar spool for a total of 6 pegs.
2. Hang mirror: This antique dresser mirror is a beast. I want to get it up off the vanity and hanging on the wall. If you have a suggestion on how to hang it and have it stay put I’d love to know!
I’ll be back with updates when we’ve added all the finishing touches!
