This week is shaping up to be pretty much more of what we were doing last week. Mill work, millwork and more millwork!! I have to say I am pretty obsessed with the way this wall treatment is turning out. I mean, stacking baseboards on the wall is a little bit of a crazy idea but the texture is amazing. I can’t wait to see all the pretty pops of color I have popping off of this awesome background. My mouldings and doors are all from Metrie and with their whole line of products, there is no stunting your creativity!
Check out the way the wood juts in and out and creates this cool texture.
Another exciting thing that happened this week is that our wood floors went in. I feel like we are finally getting over the hump and it should be pretty much smooth sailing from now on (fingers crossed that is).
We still have quite a bit of caulking, sanding, filling holes and painting to do. After we finish the painting, we will install the hardware on the doors and the lighting. I am so excited to install this beauty I found at Crystorama! I just love the mix of the white and gold in this fixture. I feel like lighting is the jewelry to the perfect dress. It can really make or break a room. It is also important to have the correct scale when it comes to lighting. You don’t want to have a large table with a tiny chandelier. This chandelier is nice and large and will be oh so gorgeous over my new dining table!
I have a few items I have been wavering on the last few weeks. I couldn’t decide how I wanted to do the drapery. White drapery vs. blush drapery…. What is a girl to do? At first I was thinking I may just go white and have them blend into the wall and be very subtle. My heart was telling me blush pink ( I am currently obsessed) but will I tire of it? Well, life is about taking design risks right? I’m going with the blush…. I think! I found these great ones at The Shade Store, what do you think, pink or white?
This room has definitely been a group effort, but none of this would be possible without my amazing husband Dave that is always down with my crazy ideas. He is going to need a nice long vacation once our remodel is done!
So I leave you with this, unpainted walls and dirty floors. Two more weeks until the final reveal and I promise you it won’t disappoint. I may have even smuggled a tray I found while local shopping in Seattle home in my suitcase because it was just too perfect not to pass up for the coffee table. Until next update my friends!
Follow along with all my fellow Challengers!
