For any curious souls, a few sneak peeks…
Freshly painted ‘new‘ gray walls [and ceiling]. The industrial-looking clock is a ‘new‘ vintage find…picking-up on some of the brushed chrome/steel details in the bedroom accessories. Also, new bedding. I want to make a few more pillows; Katie likes lots of pillows!!
Here’s Katie’s existing dresser/chest of drawers. I re-painted the peg rack [black] that hangs behind the door for miscellaneous hats, etc. The wall art/photo is also ‘existing’. It is one of the most iconic photographs of all time… ‘Lunch Atop a Skyscraper, ‘ taken over 80-years ago, high above the streets of Manhattan! Read more about the photo here.
I removed the drum-type lamp shade from the existing table-lamp and replace the conventional light bulb with a ‘vintage-style’ repro light bulb from Home Depot. The table lamp ‘works‘ because it’s also brushed chrome/steel.
We have yet to FIND the lumber/wood to construct the built-in shelving in the nook. And, still on the hunt/considering wall art… large scale horse anatomy charts, large print of Katie and her goats, etc.
Oh yeah, the thrill of the hunt! Soooooo, what do you think so far????
Great job! Can’t wait to see the pillows…maybe some cable-y textured ones
in a surprisingly soft yarn ?!
Yes Yes Yes! The texture would be fantastic. Katie also wants me to make her a knitted ‘pouf’ stool…have you seen them? 🙂
