So a new week with new adventures starts! My weekend was very productive (in a good way!). I worked on another recipe – this time a coffee vanilla liqueur. It was quite easy to make and should be ready in 4 weeks. I think I’m finding this to be a new hobby of mine and will be looking forward to making more liqueurs – maybe even check out a book from the library.
I am still working on my bedroom and making progress. I found a desk from my bedroom office and had to jump on it as soon as I saw it. It’s a parsons table from West Elm that generally runs around $300. I saw this beauty at the outlet for half the cost and knew this was the one. It has two drawers in the front and a high gloss finish. I’m really pleased with how it’s turning out so far. Here’s how it looks…
Sorry for the dark picture – I snapped it last night. Oh and ignore the layout of the cables – haven’t had time to organize them. As for the lamp I am using, it is from the 1940’s that I rewired about 10 years ago. You cannot believe how heavy this floor lamp is (the base is made of marble). It’s hard to see in this picture, but it has a white wash on the post.
What I still need:
1. Desk Chair – I have an idea of what I want (mid-century with hairpin legs), but I think the one I have in mind will be difficult to find.
2. Rug – Looking to place some color in front of the bed.
3. Headboard, Dresser – I am looking for a farmhouse style frame and have been waiting for a deal (Right now the price for one I’ve been keeping an eye on is $1500). Patience is key for this one…
4. Vintage Buffet – Still looking out for this. It’s been really hard to find one in decent condition that’s reasonably priced.
