Hope you all had a lovely weekend. We had a weekend filled with sunshine and many world cup games that we watched with dad in celebration of Father’s day!
While Sunday was relaxing and filled with lots of yummy food and simply hanging out with family Saturday was a bit more hectic.
Instead of working on another project me and Jon decided we were going to take it easy this weekend. That was until my sister found and got approved for a new apt, which meant she needed to be out of her old apt in a little over a week. So off we went to help out move some of the big stuff!
Do you all remember my fun $350 project in Chelsea?
Let’s take a trip down memory lane:
After I worked my magic on the space this is what you use to see when you first arrived to their kitchen/dining/living area:
Those chic stools provided extra seating and a spot to place your bags. So happy I saved them from the trash and gave them a new lease on life! The mirrors and artwork were all thrift store finds purchased for a couple of bucks a piece and basic white storage cabinets were re-purposed with a coat of chalkboard paint.
When I arrived on Saturday some of the packing had already begun and it looked like this!
Walking into their dining nook you were met with a table only a group of girls would enjoy! I went with a bright pink/coral high gloss look:
One of my other favorite things in the room was my folding chairs revamp. I love what the addition of a little fabric, batting and staple gun did to $5 thrift store chairs.
It currently looks like this:
If you continued past the dining area you were met with the living room nook. Ah the joys of living in a NYC apt. This was a teeny tiny space to work in.
With some pillows, more thrift store finds, a touch of leopard and some designer fabric that was found for a steal we made the existing furniture work and helped tie in the green paint that my sister and her roomies had already painted.
Close up of my DIY Chic & Cheap artwork:
My sister must have gotten to work early on Saturday morning, because when we arrived at 11 am we saw this:
I have to say it was pretty sad seeing everything taken down and ready to move on. It was a fun project to do and I’m happy they got enjoy it in their first NYC apt.
Of course sadness was quickly over shadowed with excitement. I already have the ideas flowing for the new space! Don’t worry I’ll be sure to take you along on the ride.
I hope you all had a more restful weekend than that. What did you do?
* Don’t forget there is still a chance to enter the 3M give-away!
** Many thanks for all the great feedback. I’m certain you guys are going to love the look and features on the blog! It’s been a big project and I’m happy to see it finally finishing up!
