Delve into 2012

Guest Room
Some time this year I hope we can address the guest room, which is downright pitiful. I’ve been dreaming of this palette for a while now. I’m jonsing for a pop of color upstairs.


{ Unfortunately, I do not have the photo credit for the room in the top of the montage as I saved it a long time ago. The bottom left photo is from desire to inspire and the bottom right is from Canadian House & Home via Creamy Life. Fabric was found on Calico Corners. }

What we’re hoping to accomplish:
Paint the walls using the shadow stripping method like we used in the bedroom. I don’t know right now if we’ll use a stencil, an angular design or go free hand.
DIY headboard.
Louvered door for the closet.
Pelmet box. { Illustration forthcoming! }
Roman shades and drapes.
Finish tables – knobs and mirrored tops.
Seating and console table/dresser.
Ceiling fan.
Lighting – don’t have any clue as to what this will look like yet.

We’ll get to addressing the living room and the master bedroom/bath {mom’s domain} soon!

Bon Weekend – Urchin for details

I was putting together another ‘Delve into 2012’ post dedicated to the upstairs guest room. I went to snag the URL for the bedside tables and mocked myself for never buying the seafoam Urchin Test knobs (and are we sure they’re not poppy pods?) from Anthropologie. I’d had them on my wish list since they came out and I watched as they dropped from $8 to $2.95 and stayed glued to my seat with inactivity until they were no longer available. I googled them for an image source when I stumbled upon them at the site. What? I got greedy and immediately placed an order for 8 and I was told there weren’t that many remaining, so I tried again and selected 4. Hurray, the order went through. I was ecstatic. I got my confirmation email and was happy. Later in the evening I received the tracking info and saw that only three were shipping. I didn’t care, I really only wanted two in the first place and was happy to have an extra… just in case. I decided to click on the item link and was greeted with ‘We’re sorry. This item is no longer available’. Did I just score the last three seafoam colored knobs? I don’t know, but I do know I’m pretty stoked right now.

Cheers to them arriving safely and going on the tables without issue! I think they’ll look quite awesome.

We still need to add mirrored tops to the tables.
