It is reeeeeally cold and windy here and winter hasn't started, I'm scared. Yesterday I had to fight the wind to get to the front door and when I got inside I realized that half of my shopping bag had blown out in the driveway.
BUT the thrifting is SO good!! Look at those arms!! I just about died. Getting closer, I saw the $35 price tag, I was so excited. I was on the fence because I wasn't sure about the front legs (no pic, but there is more detail on the front, I figured if it bugged me too much I could fix them somehow). Good condition, price, and there was a pair! Sold!
We're planning on replacing the back cushion for one that is square and no tufting. Those arms are so pretty, I don't want too much competing with them.
When I got home, I came up with a few fabric options and shared on Instagram (thanks for your input, insta friends!). I'm leaning towards a solid velvet (maybe a print on the back panel, but probably not). The stain is worn, but not horrible, I might leave it as is for now, or I might paint it white or black.
My office (in Ohio)
Last week I worked on an article for Houzz on panels to conceal those pesky wires (see end of post for link)
I'm finally getting around to reupholstering my chair (legs have been spray painted black).
I've narrowed it down to black and white stripe. I picked up some fabric from Ikea, it's heavy weight, like duck cloth. Has anyone used it to upholster furniture? I want to make sure the quality is good before spending time ..
and Kravet Xu Garden (sorry for the bad photoshop, I just dropped it in there)
Also, I'm probably going to be swapping my desk for this one (found at Goodwill). If I do, I'll use my existing desk as a side table. Unfortunately the top corner is damaged so it will be easiest to paint, I'm thinking about leaving the drawers wood. We are currently without a t.v. stand so we temporarily had it here .. since then, it's been sanded and waiting for primer.
So, tons of project ideas floating around my head! David is going to Baltimore at the end of the week for work .. so I'll have lots of time on my hands, hopefully I'll get a few things done!
Here's a first look at my office (first image is before :)! Make sure to check out my article on Houzz - how to have an open desk and hide wires!
