Weekend Recap: work, work & more work
This weekend was not restful at all. Saturday was spent running around Manhattan in the dreadful heat for client meetings and then getting stuck in traffic on my way.
The rest of the day was spent searching for bedding for my sister’s new apt and finishing up some projects for her. We were up till midnight doing work.
Sunday was another trip into the city to bring some furniture into my sissy’s new apt and I made sure to get some sneak peeks.
Her little dining nook:
I told you I was feeling toile take a peek at my cushion fabric and of course I love a touch of greek key can you find it in the picture?
Remember my amazing thrift store deal from last September? Well it’s on loan from my sweet mom and it fits in perfectly.
We also added some furniture pieces to her bedroom. Remember how I was
arguing discussing with my sister that you don’t need to have a matching bedroom set?
Well we decided to meet each other in the middle. We used pieces from the vintage bamboo set I had found, but gave them a different look to break up the set! This way both of us ended up happy.
Isn’t that an amazing shade of green? I love it and tend to use it time and time again.
I didn’t want to be a total tease so here is another shot of the desk and chair.
The dresser got a different look to break up the set. Of course I had to inject a little bit of my favorite color!
Again remember totally no styling done here the room is still being put together, but here is the full dresser:
Of course I share the good, bad and the ugly on this blog. Check out the rest of the room:
Not good, but don’t fret my pets it should all be wrapped up in the next week or so.
I did make a little time to add some fun. On my way home from the my sissy’s apt we stopped in Brooklyn to see some old friends and do a little BBQing.
So loves, share & spill what you did this weekend? Any fun projects you tackled or how about just plain old fun that was had?
*The green paint color is Shamrock by Behr (Hate the name, love the color!) and then pillows were actually made by my seamstress. The fabric is available here.
