Hi All! I hope everyone enjoyed their three day weekend! Sorry I have been MIA. Life has gotten the best of me. I have been busy working and spending time with my family. We managed to get some nice quality time together over the 3-day weekend. The kids even braved the very cold pool on Monday. This of course means that we have not made very much progress on the house. We did also do some important brainstorming and thinking through how we are going to finish out the closets and trim. I think we also have a better handle on what work we are going to do verses the contractor.
I’m without the nice camera right now and I didn’t stage the photo (i.e. the level is behind the side table) but I did want you guys to get to see the Best Showroom Panels on the wall above our bed. It involved 2×4 being screwed into the studs at the top and bottom of each panel and carefully installing the panels over them and screwing them in. Fortunately it went well after some initial “finessing”. These are actually hung sideways, although the beauty of this is that with the pattern it doesn’t matter.
Here is the building that these came from:
Can you find our panels? I am quite smitten with how they look on the wall. I really helps to highlight the ceiling height. The bed is pretty low, so I think the scale really helps. I am also loving our new bedside lamps them from Joss and Main. They are made by Krush a division of Luminance and called the Elle Table Lamp in satin gray. The only downside is that I have to stretch to turn it off.
It is making me think that maybe I need some more modern art in the house.
