Weekend Goodness

What a fun, jam packed weekend it was. I hit up a huge street sale in my cousins neighbourhood, spent some quality time with the fam, did a little photosshot, watched a couple of softball games and picked up a couple of items from an estate sale. There was definitely some Sunday love happening when I picked up these awesome chairs...

I scored these two chairs from an online auction. The first chair will most likely be going into #projectdressingroom and the second chair is mine all mine. I've always wanted a cute armchair for my bedroom or office and wouldn't it also look adorable in a nursery or little girls room? There's so many options! Even though this won't be too difficult to reupholster, it will have to wait until Project Louis is complete. I just adore the cane back; can't get enough of it...

The street sale was so much fun, I was delighted to see several lemonade stands and a cute cupcake stand with all proceeds going towards saving the polar bears. Too cute! I found this beautiful rustic shelf which will also be used for #projectdressingroom:

My client wanted to include a few rustic elements so this is perfect. I'm thinking the reclaimed wood will add some depth and character to the space and with a few accessories it will look so beautiful.

How was your weekend? Score any great finds?

Furniture Friday #projectdressingroom

Happy Friday Everyone! I'm so excited to share some progress on Project Dressing Room. We've started sourcing some key pieces and have made our first furniture purchase this week. We actually took a trip to The Singing Lady and Ikea a couple of weeks ago to see if we could get some ideas to get the ball rolling. Here's what we found:

The brass and black chandy is definitely a contender. We also decided the Billy Bookcase is the way to go. It's cost-effective, the shelves are adjustable which would accommodate heels and boots and it's the perfect depth for Anh's shoe size. A chaise or ottoman has always been on her must-have list so one of those will definitely make an appearance. Wallpaper will be used either behind the shelving or on a feature wall. Anh requested something graphic and I've been dying to use the Triangles wallpaper by Lisa Congdon. Yummy! So here is what I'm thinking for the room:

I know it looks pretty white right now but I'm thinking the open shelving and clothing rack will bring a lot of colour into the room. Of course the accessories will also bring in additional colour and texture. We scored that exact desk chair recently, but we will be updating the look with some paint and new upholstery. I've also gathered some paint samples this week so that will be happening very soon. Super excited about #projectdressingroom! You can also follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for real-time photos of my vintage escapades and #projectdressingroom finds!

Have you started any new projects lately? Have a great weekend all!
