Week 3!!! Time to get serious. Despite having a big to-do list in front of me, we’re slowly chipping away at it.
This past weekend, Vito and our wonderful friend Arjan installed the crown moulding , which looks so great against the bold walls.
I also got to work stripping the dresser. This is still in progress as it needs a good, good sanding to take up the rest of that dark stain, but I love how it’s coming along!
This is where we started:
Here’s where we are now:
After a good scraping
Another good scrub plus sanding will help lift the color, and the wood is just beautiful underneath. I should wrap this bad boy up by Friday.
On a random note, I didn’t realize how perfect the drawers are until today. The top one is shallow which will be perfect for little socks, onesies and some changing table necessities – oh the feeeeeels that gives me.
I also ordered this fun fabric from fabric.com for the panels I’ll install behind the crib.
It reminds me of the awesome indigo shibori prints I’ve been seeing everywhere. I love them, but attempting my own? My crazy has not yet reached that level.
The idea for these is to build frames and mount the fabric. How? Not sure yet. Either staples, hot glue, or first adhering the fabric to something more rigid – time will tell. I’ll break down the winning process once I figure it out myself! It should look something like in my mood board.
I think the panels be awesome with some coordinating buffalo check pillows on the day bed, too..
Let’s take a look at that to-do list, shall we?
Hem & trim curtains
Replace ceiling fan shades
Put it all together!!
There’s still a ton to do but I’m feeling good. Also – anyone have a good source for a beautiful leather pouf? I’d like to stay around $100. I’ve found a bunch but always looking for suggestions!! AND some good navy pom pom trim. I’m coming up a bit short…
