Here are a progress shots from the last couple of weekends. I am loving the overall design direction at the place and it's never too much to pair a pagoda lamp with a faux bamboo bedside table right? The kitchen makeover is on its way with countertop picked and backsplash tiles ordered. I intend to add barn board detail at the island and have found Stikwood. The application looks simple enough … we will see how it goes!
The kitchen is also getting a new coat of paint and I am going with a warm white from Para Paints for the uppers and this hot new grey at IKEA is going to the lower cabinets. A blue accent wall will wrap around the kitchen thanks again to Para Paints for coming to the rescue.
In case you've missed it, the latest addition to my SR furniture collection is Lou Lou bench and it's going straight into the den. A sneak peek for the drapes thanks to Tonic Living: they are sensational!
I am not a big fan of the builder grade tub faucets. ODIN from Brizo, you look so good! Chris also doesn't like his toilet and we went to The Home Depot to check out the throne. Who knew toilet shopping can look so glamorous! This one from Delta Faucet is looking mighty fine.
Of course I could't help myself but to stop by my favourite HomeSense when in Waterloo. Check out these goodies and yes, they were all from one trip, one HomeSense! This location is GOOD!
I was also looking for a pair of vintage doors to go into #ProjectChris to add some characters to this brand new building. Timeless Materials in St. Jacobs is a fantastic store for vintage materials. That pair of doors would have come home with me if they were not 8" too narrow! So I headed to ReStore and check out these faux bamboo door crashers! $25 a piece and why didn't I pick them up?
Now here is the door going into the den. The size is slightly smaller than the wall opening. I guess it would have been fine if I install it as regular door but I don't want to leave space for door clearance. So I am thinking sliding door, and I am asking my Sliding Door Sensei: Christopher and Lisa on how to fix this fitting issue.
My initial thought is to run the baseboard trim all the way to the top to fill up the gaps on the sides. I will also have to lift up the door & attach it to the track system. I don't want to door to look short … so I will probably need to add a couple of inches to the base of the door too.
Any suggestions friends?
Heading out now & fingers crossed it all works out! See you all on Wednesday!
