Week 5. Week 5?! Holy cow. This is all happening so fast… Last week we made pretty big strides on the bones of the space. Friday the walls got sprayed, and since then we’ve been touching up, hanging lights, setting up surround sound and installing our favorite switches to really help set the theatrical mood.
Yesterday I picked up the countertop and Micah glued it down. I went with Allen + Roth’s Black Tie for some contrast to the walls and woodwork. For less then $200 we have a really nice place to set snacks or drinks. Tip: to save a bit of money on a small countertop (especially if there’s no sink involved) offer to pick it up and install it yourself. Just a bit of silicone holds it in place.
The Woolston Plaid carpet started going in last night it’s so perfect! and it’s FINALLY time to get to the fun stuff. Or what I hope will be the fun stuff. Tonight we’ll be moving furniture down. I’ll be praying everything fits and looks the way I envisioned it in my head. Hanging art and styling will come next. I’m still missing one of the key pieces of art shipping from France, ugh and a few accent pieces. Door and cabinet hardware should be here by the end of the week. Accessories will be minimal, but minimalism requires things to be just perfect, so I’m hoping to find some great pieces this week to finish off the space. It’s hard to believe, but I’ll be back next week with the reveal!
