progress is power

i have sanded and applied one coat of primer. i have to wait for mike to get home to remove the hardware under the flaps, if i did it it would collapse and land on my head causing me to die.
also i ordered the hardware, it was cheap!!! 4.50 per pull and i got the last 2!


and then BAM! new sunburst mirror a la FURBISH, fuckers!!

and just like that i became. that. much. cooler.

jamie did me a favor and gave me a deal...so i can't honestly say how much it is retail.

i would rather not say what i paid for it out of respect for jamie. i don't want a shitload of people to call her up and be all..."umm MFAMB paid this much for it so why can't i?" you feel me anon?

but look at how amaze it looks!!!

mirror is fab. candles - fab. what I am really loving is the glimpse of the orange lamp. awesome. see, that is the kind of thing I am going for. I got all this old stuff and I need to mix it up. Come do my house.

Kristin said...

You are quite the DIY queen lady!

GiGi said...

um, i'll take that orange lamp that's trying to play hide and seek with me, thank you.

btw-tracy dvd's--they're the "perfect design series"-her words not mine. i guess there are 2 dance, a butt and abs and an arm.

she's crazy-and so was that video this morning. i looked like i was trying to keep a swarm of bee's away from me.

oh, and my word verification below? EATERS.

You are the absolute coolest. And so is your bar cart. And now I get Erika's comment on your next post. I, fyi, am not cool. But damn if I don't try.

Sarah @ Maison Boheme said...

Painting the bar white - I'm sorry, Swan - is brilliant. Its going to look stellar! I'm jealous.

Benjamin A McEntyre said...

I love you, and your writing style, and your personal style. i also love the color of your walls in the last picture. It is very similar to my walls, painted a color which I had the local Benjamin Moore store match to Farrow and Ball's Old White. I was wondering if you would divulge your wall color? I will send you a picture of mine if you tell me yours...

my favorite and my best said...

benjamin- thank you and thank you and thank you..

that wall color is ralph lauren forde abbey. it is a true gray with a slight tinge of brown.

hello gorgeous said...

*Love* the wall color and the mirror and the fireplace tile? or what is that? I will have to scour your blog unless you make it easy for me.

The room is looking awesome! More photos, pls.
