Week 1 Vivid Hue Home Plan
Let me remind ya'll of my vision:
This week was dependent upon a lot of deliveries, returns, reorders and 'gettins-it-right.'
The most exciting part of the week, the Turquoise Urchin Chandelier arrived! I must say Zach Dutton, the owner of Stimulight was excellent in fast tracking this custom chandelier to me. I ordered it on etsy on September 16th and on October 3rd, it shipped!
It is just as fabulous as I thought it would be!
I can't wait to get this baby out of the box and hung on the ceiling! Right now, I'm just coordinating with the electrician's schedule to get it hung! It can't happen soon enough!
For those of ya'll that have been following me for awhile, you know that I absolutely LOVE to decorate and come up with DIY projects...but I generally take a half a$$ed approach in some of the details. (For example, why sand a door if I can just do an extra coat of paint?). Well in this case, I purchased window blinds without having the exact measurements on hand. I thought for *sure* that I recalled them properly. I ended up buying 36" width for 34" width windows. Hey...a few trips back and forth. And back and forth. And back again to have another 1/2" inch shaved. FINALLY they fit the gosh darned windows. And then my drill wasn't quite charged so I attempted to hang them by hand with a screw driver and managed to strip the screw in the process. So, I just hammered the screw into the wall the rest of the way. Hey, the bracket is nice and secure, and this isn't for a client (thank goodness), so I'm allllllllll set! Here's a sneak peak of part one of the multi-faceted window treatments. Remember, I hope to add drapes and hardware and all of that good stuff too!
The room is painted in the Sherwin Williams HGTV SW Loyal Blue and it's looking good against the headboard! Sneak Peak...
The fabulous turquoise nightstands are a tad damaged on the ends. The paint is chipped and the tops are water damaged. I need to add beveled mirrors and some paint to repair.
And new hardware is in order. Here is what's there currently....
One other nerve-wracking update...my Petersham Ribbon in Azalea is still processing. I ordered it back on August 12th. Yes, nearly TWO MONTHS AGO! It's been on backorder since then and I'm still not sure that it will ship in time for me to do the nailhead ribbon trim border in the room. Fingers crossed!
