On Call Laundry Duty

I can’t think of any one who likes to do this one household chore, or better yet any! But thankfully these laundry rooms no longer are a drag to sort and wash your clothes. They no longer consist of a messy space filled with smelly dirty clothes laid about. Today these rooms are modern, and open, while others are served as a multi-functional area.

Eye Candy: Master Bedroom

I know it’s only Tuesday and while most people are going onto their second day of work. In my line of business Tuesday’s are considered my first day back to work. In any event I didn’t want to get out of bed. But since I love what I do, I’ve got to rise and shine. So here’s to everyone who loves their bedroom as much as I love mine.
A dark accent wall against this tufted headboard gives the bed a focal point. This way the bed doesn’t get lost within the four white walls. The matching chrome seating gives the room a touch of glam. While the hardwood floors breathes warmth into the air.
Speaking of glam. I’m a sucker when it comes to black, white and anything mirrored as my room is based on this color palate. I love how all the colors come together and the chandelier takes it up a notch in the decor.
A simple yet comfortable New York apartment bedroom. White crisp sheets and a down comforter. I think I might just have to call out sick…ahh chew!
Bonus: After getting your beauty rest the next place to go is makeup and hair! Who wouldn’t love to get ready in a vanity room like this.

Pieces I adore

The other day I shared with a recent find on the infamous “Craigslist”. Well I’ve come across some other fabulous items I picked up over the weekend. I originally went to buy this table. But ended  up coming back the next day for another which I also have show further below in my post.

When I saw this table it was like love at first sight! I kept going back to the site to see if it was still available and after enough thought I decided to call to see if it was still available. As to my relief it was still for sale! The former owner told me that she was having a garage sale and I asked her to please keep it to the side for me as I don’t want to chance it being put out & accidently sold to someone else. The next day as promised it was left inside for the new owner (me) to purchase. It would look lovely as a side table in a formal living room but for now it looks just as good in my bedroom. I didn’t realize that it came with a draw until when I picked it up. It’s perfect for little storage items. As I opened the draw I found some stampings in and below the draw that told me it was manufactured by Huntington. So just as I suspected this was made by one of the best!!

Just as I was leaving to put my new table in my car. I couldn’t help but noticed this other fancy item. The woman told me that all the proceeds were going to a charity for war veterans with disabilities. Which I was happy to I’m helping a good cause!

Very similar if not like the one from the Cococozy website. See below.

But as a temporary fix I just put some of the remaining fabric I had from my previous chair on this until I get my tools down here from CT to start upholstering it and putting the final touches to it.

I know the pic looks a little dark but I’ll reveal the real finish piece soon!

I can’t wait to show you the final touches to both the table & chair. Oh I almost forgot to mention they look very well together as a pair. If you haven’t notice they have the same ratton/wicker texture on them both. Who would’ve thought?!

Enjoy your mid-day Wednesday weekday!!

From blah…to ahhh!

My new D.I.Y adventure around my house was fixing up this old cabinet and bringing it back to new. For years and years I’ve been looking at this (see below) for the longest time. And I’ve never had time to get around to it. Until recently, I was determined to get to it before I went on vacation to viva Las Vegas!!

Sanded to the bare…

And here’s my finished product!!

And there we have it a new look to my old cabinet. Tell me your thoughts. What projects do you have in progress? Looking forward to another beauty I plan to begin this week. Keep in touch to see what will come up next!

Enjoy your relaxing Sunday!!
