I wanted to keep you all posted on my office re-vamp. I few one additions got finished over the weekend!
First let’s remember what the space looked like before:
This is how it looked when we first moved in and it pretty much stayed that way for a year and half. When I started my business I knew I needed a space to call my own and this was going to be it. So we got to work!
Over the weekend window treatments came in along with a little friend for my loveseat aka meeting area.
I snagged that lovely bench at a thrift store a couple of months ago. When I was taking it apart I found a tag that stated it was from the 1920’s! I then went out and got some contrasting fabric to have it reupholstered.
I know that the loveseat fabric is pretty loud, but I didn’t want to get a basic neutral for the bench, so I found a smaller pattern in neutral shades to not distract, but still give some interest. Since the loveseat pattern had a bit of orange I decided to pull that color out and use it for the tufting and piping.

Now here is where I ask for help. What color should I spray paint the frame? It is originally gold. It would work in the room, but I was leaning towards painting it white and then out of no where this morning I decided I wanted orange.
Decisions are the worst (If you know what old movie that line comes from then I know we are destined to my life long friends)
If you have a chance I would love a comment and let me know what color you are leaning towards.
As you can see some window treatments also arrived. Practically the whole room is incased in UGLY windows! We are getting new ones, but that is not happening right away. So to hide the UGLY I went to Loews and picked up all my supplies including fabric and rod system. I’ll post more on that tomorrow.
* I would love to say that I won my battle with the sewing machine and produced that myself, but alas I did not. I was going to try it out, but then figured why ruin the fabric, give myself some gray hairs and never get it finished when I can just hand it over to Julie and for the exchange of $48 bucks we are both happy campers.
