I'm lusting after a lot of decor-related items lately. I think it's because we're trying to save some money so we can put a down payment on a new car, and therefore I cannot indulge nearly as much as I'd like to in my decorating addiction.
But what I'm really lusting after the most is a new runner for my entryway. The one we have now matches our old paint job, that nasty maroon color that used to cover most of our house, and looks really bad with the light blue we have down there now. I've been searching for a reasonably priced runner for quite some time now, but most of the ones are like are too expensive. However, this being Wishlist Wednesday and all, I don't have to worry about the price at all!
|$129 regularly, but $103 on sale right|
now at West Elm!
|I also love the idea of a simple jute rug.|
This one is also from West Elm, and going
for $99.00 regularly, but $79.99 now. This
one is actually affordable!
|This is my favorite! And guess what? It's|
on sale for $71.00 at West Elm! Ah! I might
be a bad girl today...
|I love the texture of this rug from Pottery Barn, going for $129.00, a bit|
too much for me right now.
|Yes, pardon the laundry hamper. I'm being an|
expert multi-tasker today.
And now for something completely different! (If you know what show this is from, you will officially be the coolest blog follower ever.)
I primed the nightstand! And guess what? With just one coat of streaky, see-through primer, it looks about five times better.
Just in case you forgot, here is the nightstand before it met Mr. Primer:
|Check out those water marks. Oh yeah, many bottles of water,|
Gatorade, and nail polish remover graced the top left corner
of that nightstand over the years.
|How can you still see those water stains!? I really hope that they|
even out after a second coat of primer before the paint.
And there you have it, kids, the first coat of primer is on. There's no going back now (not that I want to). I'll do the second coat this evening and hopefully start painting Friday. Why not Thursday? Well, it's a busy day and then... I'm seeing Harry Potter at midnight!! My childhood will officially end around 2:30am on Friday, July 15th. I'm not sure how I feel about that.
