Design Projects

Hey y'all! How is everyone? Thanks for joining in on another WHW. I  need to wait just ONE more week for a renovation #3 update so that we can finish installing some pretty fabulous and fun light fixtures. However, you've probably gotten a sneak peek by now if you follow my IG highlights! For now lets dive into some recent design projects shall we?

Today I went and got quotes on some fun upholstery projects I need to jump on. Basically I need to start this story by admitting that I have a chair addiction. The first step is admitting you have a problem right? Seriously I do. I have so many cane and bamboo style chairs that I always scoop up whether I know where I'll put them or not. My parent's barn is sort of full. This story is great though because it was such a SCORE! I was looking for cane, barrel back chairs for a specific spot in the new house because they are petite. I found the ones I wanted from a cute antique mall in Palm Beach, Florida. They were going to cost $350 with shipping and I was JUST about to pull the trigger when I saw them on marketplace for $75 bucks semi-locally! Yea...needless to say I jumped on that and I am IN LOVE! They're in perfect condition. I'm going to go a little out of my comfort zone and paint them a sharp shiny black. The Schumacher Chiang Mai Dragon fabric to the right of them I'm splurging on but my oh-so talented friend and interior designer, Hillary, has agreed to do them for me if I sent them to her along with the fabric.  

You can see the black with the fabric here

I also went ahead and got a quote to have my dining chairs done. The chairs I scored are in fact periwinkle. (RIP Periwinkle fred) but I am having them painted white and adding the Mira Blue Ballard Designs fabric to the seat. The table below is just like the table I scored and will also be painted white to match. Its a vintage Thomasville Allegro set and I searched high and low for that baby! (at a fraction of the cost because it was...well...periwinkle) I had them shipped from SC last summer and have been keeping them in storage for this new home. The chairs are coming in at about $60 a seat but at least they will be professionally done. I found the Mira Blue fabric for $21.00 a yard which is so MUCH better than the Ming off right?

I'm also feeling this geometric fabric and possibly this trim for my living room curtains!

I also had no choice but to go ahead and snag two of these Lancaster rugs via Joss & Main. Every time I looked at them they were sold out! I signed up to be notified of restock and when I finally got the email, I grabbed the 3x7ft for the front side of our island in the kitchen and a smaller one to go by the kitchen door. Unfortunately, they are sold out again and not back in stock until November.

I've been hammering down some other purchases a few at a time and waiting for things to go on sale. We still have about 3 or 4 months until we most likely move it and I hate to clutter things up with lots of unopened boxes. Here are some of the items left to purchase for the new house. I"ll report back with sources, sales and discounted options as I find them.

Thanks for linking up with us each week! I truly adore this link up! Miss A has been kicking butt still and is so happy and vibrant. I pray that she continues to be this way! We are entering week 5 of treatment today and I want to take a moment to thank each and every single one of you for the continued prayers and support. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
