After some blogging research, I realized I updated my office last summer – June. I’m telling you this to tell myself this, that I need to cool it after this.
The goal – sophisticated and European vintage mix.
#1 Organizing artwork
Right now I’m reevaluating my artwork. I’m looking into framing and matting my custom illustration I commissioned because I really want to showcase my watercolor by Inslee.
I’m also debating framing my PHOENIX magazine covers – the one I photographed and the one I’m on.
It’d be nice to display, but it also hasn’t been displayed for a while so there has been no urgency although now would be a good time than any to get going on it.
#2 Hanging the quilt by the Great Aunts
Benjamin and I received some wonderful family heirlooms as wedding gifts. They are so so special to me. One included, was a gorgeous quilt made by his great aunts in 1934. I squealed when I came across the date stitched on it and bought a curtain rod from Pottery Barn, it will hang over it as a large statement piece –
#3 Make a bookshelf?
I found this gem of a bookshelf from Anthropologie, on sale for $1400.
I need to stop being attracted to the most expensive furniture, this is a huge problem, seriously.
This is when I ponder buying an IKEA bookcase, rope from Home Depot, and utilizing my hot glue gun. IKEA hack in my future?
What do you think? I think that takes a lot of time and planning. I suppose it could be worth a shot, but then I would need to get rid of the ladder shelf. I foresee Pinners everywhere being pin happy, eh?
Sorry the update will be slow, the couch I want is sold out and now I must wait for it to reappear on those flash furniture sale sites. As for selling furniture, nothing’s moving, and if it doesn’t move soon, I will donate to our local hospice thrift shoppe, which to me means it’ll be put to even better use.
