A Tour of the Den

I have been busy busy sewing and bringing some color to this room. 

There is still upholstry to be done on the bergere chair, a coffee table and a few more accents but I am happy to be at this point!

Do we remember what it looked like when we moved in 18m ago?

Can't wait to show you the project we have planned for this weekend!

Curb Appeal the Details

Several of you have asked where our light, door knocker etc is from.

So I am back with links to these things. 

And maybe, just maybe if I can get this place all tidy at once I will be back with an updated list of where we are now!

The Pottery Barn Bolton Sconce:

Here is the sconce before the brick!

And after painting. 
Man, paint changes everything!

I love the little "leaves" at the base of the light, so much character and brings some serious personality to this boring spot.

 The knocker... ohhhh my knocker. 

This is the ring door knocker in brass by Restoration Hardware.

I found this gem at a steal of a deal and knew the door needed this pizazz!
{ignore the fact we need a second coat of paint!}

For the hardware I knew we needed something to coordinate with the light and the knocker, the problem being the knocker is brass, and most doorknobs at stores like Lowe's and HD don't come standard in brass. 

and yes this inner casing still needs to be painted white. 
add it to the list.

we went with something similar to this.
{i can't find the link to our actual knob}

And a precious shop in Fairhope, Alabama made the wooden door hanger. 
Kissy Fish Designs is their name!

 The chippendale planters I found at an estate sale!

And the porch pillows were spruced up in a fresh premier prints fabric!!

Left to do:
paint interior casing of front door, 
find a new handle for the storm door
new doorbell
figure out how to "jazz up" or hide, (either one) the lovely box for the home sound system
Gotta love the early 80's!!
continue working in the flowerbeds.

Next up is the flowerbeds, part 1 of 3!

Den Makeover: The Couch

Whew... this post has been a long time coming...

When we purchased our house we knew almost immediately the sectional from our previous home would not work in here.

We made it work from July until one glorious day back in November. 
I had been eyeing this couch for months and months in the Pottery Barn Catalog. 

The Carslisle
not skirted, not chenille, and only linen if it was extra soft... 
Then we thought we would order it if  I could find the perfect fabric.... 
Then the 2,000.00 sticker to have it custom upholstered held me up... 

Ugh, alas....
Until one glorious friday morning.
I was perusing our local Pottery Barn Outlet.

There she was.... in all her splendor. 
Not in the ideal fabric but the price was RIGHT yall..
Called hubby and he wanted to see it, sit on it... I rounded the corner in the store while we talked and I saw the red sign. 
"THE" Red sign.

All upholstry an additional 20% off.

I seriously squealed. Then... while waiting on him to allow me to pull the trigger... I opened my email.
To a glorious 10% off your purchase in store or online, catalog, or outlet.
NO WAY!!!!

So put it on hold to pick up after dinner. 
On the way to the outlet I did this....

I was so mad. 
I kenw it was totalled but I did NOT want this to prevent me from getting the couch!!!

My very sweet friend Lauren picked me up first thing the next morning and we were there waiting as they opened!

Elated yall. 
This was the first iphone picture with the couch in. 

Trying to decide which panel we liked better.

Ended up being neither! 

Next up is paint, accessories and furniture layout!

Update in the Entry and A Plan

When we moved into our home back in July I had an awesome vision for our entry.

Here are some of the ideas I was thinking about for this space. 

Still strongly considering painting the walls a cream white and doing high gloss white trim.

The banister is not just exceedingly sturdy so we have contimplated ripping it all out and installing more of a modern railing. 

Our layout is this exactly in the two rooms shown. 

I like both of these styles therefore I am torn.

We are planning to rip up the carpet on the stairs, install wooden stained treads and install a carpet runner. 

The likelihood we get to this before next fall is pretty slim. 
We have hit some major obstacles in this home and soooo many things were missed on the inspection report/discovered once we moved in that we will be fixing alot of behind the scenes things first. 
BUT..... one thing we CAN do in the meantime is update some lighting.

I fell in love with this fixture back in the spring.

We saw duplicates at places like Home Depot and Lowe's but I knew this was the one the space needed.
The entry is so small and needed some charm. 

We found it for a steal of a deal at the local Pottery Barn Outlet!

And just in the few weeks it has been hanging we have gotten quite a few compliments on it! 
The shadows it casts are Soo pretty!!

So glad I held out for the one I was really wanting!

One Room Challenge... The Reveal

Thank you again Linda, from Calling it Home for hosting this wonderful bi annual event and opening it up to other bloggers.

I have found all kinds of new people to follow and I am loving the inspiration! 
I need to finish visiting all of these bloggers projects but everyone's everything looks amazing!!!
(click on the above image to go see everyone else's work!)

Can't wait to check out all the other link ups today!
SO proud of everyone!!

We have a few touch up's here and there but I'm calling it.
For example the front edge of the countertops has to be special ordered and I just haven't made it over to the store to do so. 

I also need to grab the main white wall's piece of artwork. 
(I am picking it up today so I will update a picture once I pick it up and get it hung.)

The countertop installation proved to be easier than we expected and the plumbing/sink installation was pretty easy as well.
                               Before:                                                                   After:

The drapes do such a great job of softening the space 
and you can't go wrong with this fabric from Kravet.

Alot of you have asked about specifics of the palet wall. 
Casey purchased the boards at Lowe's and its called hobby board. 

I thought this print from Jones Design Company was precious displayed in here!
 And who can resist this adorable scalloped metal/mirror tissue holder from World's Away. 
It's so perfect!!
I found this tassle a few weeks back at a store on the Collierville square, I knew it was a fun element to add to the room and tie in my love for birds!

I'm not loving the burlap ribbon tie back, but it works for now until I make one out of the trellis fabric.

I am still looking for a runner of sorts for this room and I am not quite sure what we need... 
Maybe a medium sized pattern? 
Dash and Albert indooor/outdoor?

Of course I had to incorporate one of my favorite handtowels with a metallic monogram!

Notice the toothbrush holder on the right? That and the toilet paper holder need to be removed but that is a pretty decent patch job left on the wall so I will address that after the big birthday party this weekend.

And.. on a funny note. I LOVE the fresh look of a bead of caulk. I know.... Im a crazy. haha.

Hopefully tomorrow!

I swear.. with as much as I am into at pottery barn right now they should be paying me for these wonderful shameless plugs!!! haha

A Big Girl Room Rug

As I am sure you all know Dhurri Rugs are all the rage. 
I knew if we were going to be staying in our home a Nice, emphasis on nice rug was going to be necessary for Big Girl's room. 

A 16x16 room needs something in it. 
Since living here we have been through 1 garages sale rug, and 2 remnant carpet pieces. Bottom line is they were not good quality and I was continually replacing them!!

Below is the "ideal" rug for the space. It pulled out the pop of pink I was using as an accent in the room and introduced it in a sophisticated way. 

I am thinking this rug can grow with us as she gets older. 

So... I started saving....

Then one day a few weeks ago a friend of mine called FREAKING OUT!! 
Literally yelling get to the pottery barn outlet NOW!!!

I am thinking this rug can grow with us as she gets older. 

So... I started saving....

$550 isnt terrible by any means.

Then one day a few weeks ago a friend of mine called FREAKING OUT!! 
Literally yelling get to the pottery barn outlet NOW!!!

All the rugs were marked half off!!!

The outlet price was $399.99 marked down to $99.99 the HALF OFF!!!!!!!

I felt the biggest adrenaline rush of my life to get there and get that rug!!

I also bought a small Dhurrie for the Guest House for $25.00!!

Such divine finds!!

So, now all we need to complete this big girl space is a mirror, a headboard, and a few more pieces of wall art!

We decided when we moved back in to move her bed against the wall to give her some more play space. 
(dont worry this greek key lamp is not in here any longer)

Thus far we LOVE it!
