This week has been off to a good start with the arrival of some anxiously awaited packages to spruce up my bathroom.
1. The Diamond Kilim Printed Rug
from Urban Outfitters. I’m a big fan of bold patterns so this rug was right up my alley. And, a 3×5 was only $12.00!!
2. These towels from Home Goods are satisfying my love of the Greek Key pattern.
3. A beautiful print from Anne Harwell
will be the perfect finishing touch!
I’m sure you’re thinking I’m crazy for having so much pattern going on in my bathroom, but I promise it looks great!
With all the rain we’ve been having I decided to use this weekend to tackle some DIY projects I’ve had on the back burner. First up is my version of the Jonathan Adler Chinese Chippendale chair shown below. I love the look of this chair but don’t love the $500 price tag. To recreate this I started combing Craigslist for a similar chair. This week I lucked out and nabbed one for $15! Next was a trip to Home Depot for some high gloss lime green spray paint. I was so excited to start painting I forgot to take a before picture, but trust me you’re not missing much. The chair was natural wood and had some glue residue on it that I was able to loosen w/ nailpolish remover and scrape off with a knife.
Here’s the final product:
Jonathan Adler’s Version…
For some reason the color is showing up much lighter than it is in person, but you get the idea. I still need to do a second coat of paint on this but that will have to wait till tomorrow.
