FOR THE LOVE OF LUCITE CONTINUED..

Do you remember the lucite coffee table I found on craigslist last week? Well, at 9am last Saturday I pretty much jumped out of bed and was on the road ready to load up my trunk, that table was going to be mine!
I thought I’d share a picture with her all cleaned up because I know the craigslist picture I previously posted left a little something to be desired. It’s all about seeing the potential though right?

What do you think? Was my $85.00 well spent?
Have a GREAT weekend!

CURRENTLY COVETING: MANIC TROUT NECKLACES

I’m a big fan of statement necklaces, as evidenced from past purchases. In my opinion, a great statement necklace is the easiest way to take your so-so outfit to the next level. Enter my latest obsession found after yet another etsy sesh–Manic Trout.





I am literally chomping at the bit for that elephant necklace. Vanessa wore this same necklace on Gossip Girl in season three, as if you needed another reason to want it! I think Manic Trout’s jewelry would look amazing dressing up everything from a tee shirt on the weekend to a button down at the office. Better yet, the starfish necklace with a little white dress in the summer…
I’m.In.Love!


P.S if you were loving the necklace from yesterday you can find it at another one of my favorite purveyors of statement necklaces, KEP Designs.

MY HOME: THE MAKING OF A PHOTO WALL

In our apartment we have a huge, boring, what I like to call “rental beige” (you know the color) wall. Since we’re unable to paint, I decided a photo wall would be a great way to break up the space and add some much needed color.
A few weeks back I posted about the set of Penguin Postcards I ordered from the UK because I was too impatient to wait until they became available in the U.S. Well, they finally came and now I have the perfect pieces for my gallery wall!
My first step was picking out my favorite post cards from the set. There were so many great ones it was tough!

Here’s what I initially picked out and narrowed down from:

Next I picked up some 4×6 Ribba frames from Ikea and framed the 18 post cards I had chosen. At $2.99/frame you can’t beat Ikea’s prices!
Finally, after trying several different layouts I decided on one that I liked. I decided to include a Sebastian Fernando Boher silkscreen I bought from the Natural Curiosities sale on One Kings Lane a few weeks ago.

We’ve decided to leave the hardest part, hanging the frames, until this weekend. I’ll be sure to let you see the final result after we get everything measured out and hung correctly.
If you have any tips pleave me a comment, I’d appreciate all the help I can get!
