Hey there! I can't believe it's already Week 4 of this challenge. To be honest, I'm SUPER behind and a little worried that I won't be able to get this done for the reveal. I've had minimal progress because a lot of this happened:
WORK. I'm currently swamped with a few big design projects that are taking up most of my time. I can't complain about being busy though - I feel blessed since I'm still fairly new to the full-time entrepreneur world. Th photo above is a moodboard I'm working on a for a client.
You'll notice the desk looks rather yellow? I've picked up a stain at Home Depot which I will test out in the next few days. I'm thinking it might need a teeny-tiny bit of stain to give it more of an ashy colour. What do you think?
How about this chair? I'm excited I'll finally have a spot for it!. Again, it looks yellow so I'm going to be stripping it down to the natural wood. Wish me luck! As you can see, I'm already getting a lot of use out of my new and improved desk. It's so much nicer to have a huge surface where I can lay things out. And that rug? It's going bye-bye. I purchased it with an IKEA gift card but I'm not really loving the colour. What my heart really wants is a Beni Ourain rug or a vintage kilim rug to help warm up the space and make it feel cozy. I'm loving these 2 options from West Elm:
Leaning towards the Souk because it's fair trade :) Also, as beautiful as they are, I feel like it's everywhere which might make me sick of it after awhile. Oh, decisions.
So things left to do:
- patch holes
- strip chair
- hang art
- decide on a rug!!!
Please keep your fingers crossed that a miracle happens and I get this room done. EEK!
