Friday Update ~ 10/2/2015

Happy gorgeous, Friday.  The weather is amazing here today!  As usual, things have been busy and I can't seem to keep up with everything.


The sink and faucets are installed!  I also got the plumbing hooked up but there is a tiny leak at one of the plumbing connections but it works.  The vanity is almost finished.  I have been touching up paint this week and started the clear coats.  The original hinges will be sent to the same shop as my kitchen hinges to be chrome plated next week.


This project has been moving fairly quickly.  The first two, heavy duty steps we hired some local guys that had the equipment to make things easy.  Grass was removed, then crushed concrete was brought in.

We put down another layer of landscape fabric and started laying the river rock pebble on top of that. The first section will be all pebble to save money and it makes the space more usable.  We might have to use that area to park a trailer or for storage in the future (hopefully not).  The back section will be a mix of large pavers and pebbles so we can easily place furniture and walk.  The fire pit has been laid out but not glued together.  Hopefully we will get to all that next weekend.

The pups are loving the pebble.

Blittle finished the walkway to the dock and installed more sod.  Sabine helped with keeping the new sod watered.


The shop is full!  I am finishing up a vanity and chair set early next week as well as 4 dining chairs that will be painted and the cushions covered with new fabric.  There are two end tables that need to be refinished and an old fence gate I am turning into an outdoor table.  Lots and lots of work going on.

Here are the before pictures.



This week, some friends and I took a day off to shop Round Top, Texas antique markets.  Y'all, its crazy!  You drive down the highway and there are tons of markets set up.  Hundreds of venders each.  The Original Antique Market is where we started but once we were done there we made our way south, stopping when we saw some venders that we wanted to shop.  Even if you aren't looking to buy anything, it makes a great girls' day.

We stopped by Round Top town square which is super cute.  Each little building has a store in it ranging from clothes to Royer's Pie Haven.  I got the sweet n' salty with a scoop of ice cream and it was worth every calorie.  One friend got a slice of apple pie and the other a shake.  All was delicious and a perfect sweet treat to get us through the afternoon.

I bought one thing on the trip.  A cow skin rug.  I have been shopping around for some time now but they tend to be very expensive.  My husband grew up on a ranch and I have been looking for a skin rug to bring some Texas country into our coastal home.  I plan to layer it with a jute rug in the living room.  Speaking of, changes are coming to that room.  Two years after moving in, I still have not revealed that room.  It is an interior design nightmare right now and I refuse to show y'all all the rules I am breaking.  More on that later.

I also found a vintage ring I loved but I didn't buy it.  Eyeroll, I know.  After shopping for over two years, I still haven't purchased a ring.  At some point I am going to give in and actually buy one.  Here is the one from Round Top.

It really is perfect.  Overall size isn't too big.  Platinum.  1920s. Good diamond quality.  Doesn't even need to be sized.  Remember the one I found in New Orleans a few years ago?  I didn't realize how similar they were until I got home and searched for the picture.

I like the one from Round Top better.  :)

Anyway, if you have an opportunity to go, it is a fun time and worth a day off.  We had a blast.


Pottery Barn Seagrass Wingback Armchairs - $350 each or $650 for the set.

I have 2 Pottery Barn Seagrass Wingback Armchairs in the Havana Dark Weave. (29"w x 33"d x 42"h) Both chairs have had minimum use, come from a smoke free home and are only a few years old. The removable cushion covers have no stains and are in great condition. Each chair is priced at $599 new from Pottery Barn. 

Upholstered Oversized King Headboard - $350

I custom made this for our king size bed several years ago but it does not fit our bedroom space in our new home. It is framed with MDF, filled with high density foam, and the custom sewn cover is Robert Allen fabric. The 2" nailhead trim is an antique nickel. The dimensions are 80"W x 46"T (top of curve to base of headboard) x 2"D. The overall height can be adjusted with the legs to fit your mattress height.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  Be sure to follow me on Instagram to get behind the scenes pictures and daily updates.

  6. Buying furniture has always been a perilous, complex affair. You don’t buy a couch the way you buy a television or a laptop computer. You can’t carry the couch out of the store with you (most of the time). Heck, usually you don’t really have a great idea when the couch will get to your living room.
