This is what is done:
Remember the Target table? I did some stripety stripes on it. It will go by the window seat.
The trim is painted! Although it took them a good four coats to do it. I love the red room from baseboard to crown. It’s dramatic–and cozy, too.
Chris is busy working on the built-ins. Can’t wait to see how that changes the space.
I picked up half of the pillow order from Sudi–such beautiful work! Here they are in the sleeping alcove:
And the ceiling…I had hoped to show you that this week, but I had another idea! Wall decals. I know. So they arrived yesterday and I figured I would see if the decals could give the same effect I am after with paint…
I threw a few on the ceiling to test–I like it! No painting for me. I’ll show you the ceiling strewn with the black bars next Thursday. (I used 1″ black tape from Walls Need Love, which I cut in half to make 1/2″ bars.)
The rug comes tomorrow. And once the trim has time to cure, I’ll hang the woven wood shades. Those two layers will really texturize the space for you to see next Thursday. The sofa also comes next week! If only the Clarence House fabric makes it in for the ottoman upholstery.
Overall, I’m feeling good about completing the room in time. Famous last words…
