Weekend Recap: Install on UES
I’m surprised I even have my eyelids working this morning. Last week was filled with loads of prep for my sister’s new living room look.
It’s great to do things on budget, but it’s a lot of leg work before hand. I hit multiple thrift stores and IKEA a bunch of times. Plus many, many, many cans of spray paint were used to give my thrift store finds a new life. I don’t think I went to bed earlier than 2 am any night last week.
The install took part on both weekend days. After a massively long day of work on Saturday we also had a birthday party to attend so this little lady didn’t get home till 3. Then got a couple of winks and went back into Manhattan to finish up the job.
It was a bit cloudy yesterday, but I still wanted to get some shots. So bear with me while I edit them and post the reveal later today.
Of course I love to tease so here are the before shots:
The girls actually have a nice sized living area with lots of windows and even a little mini terrace.
The couches were actually free from one of the girls relatives. The coffee table was also a freebie find that my parents found on a walk years ago. Some things stayed in the room others were promptly kicked to the curb.
Ah the lovely red table. This set use to be at my parents house. It was all wood until one day my mom decided she would test out spray painting and decided red would be it! We all hate it!
You can catch a glimpse of mom here. Doesn’t she look happy? Notice the evening dresses on the couch? Well my lovely sister decided that while I was packing up the car going on about 5 hours of sleep that it would be great if I could bring her some clothing options because she had an event to go to that night. Ah gotta love sisters.
Here is a sneak peek of what’s going into the space.
I’m so excited to share the space. It’s one of my favorites. I will be editing the pictures right away and then posting as soon as possible today. So stay tuned!
I hope you all had a more relaxing weekend than I.
