I thought I'd give you a little glimpse into the innerworkings of my creative process today. It seems like I've been talking about my office makeover FOREVER, but I promise this weekend I'm getting started with a fresh coat of paint. No, seriously. I haven't decided what color white I'm going with, but I'll likely make the final decision at the paint store. I'm thinking a white with a hint of gray. I've been collecting little pieces slowly but surely and I've put together an ideaboard to give you a sense of where I'm heading.
Yes, I know it doesn't look like much now, but you'll understand it better by and by. : ) Sorry, a little hymnal humor. I digress.
So, it all started with an awesome crystal chandelier a previous client gave me after we replaced it with a more modern fixture. Needless to say, I was glad to take it off her hands.
Then I stumbled upon an awesome deal on a mahogany desk top at the Habitat ReStore in Hickory. I scored it for only $25.00 and it's beautiful. I'm planning to add trestles for the legs similar to the ones pictured above.
I picked up a faux bamboo chair at another Habitat ReStore and I've been holding on to it for quite some time. I knew the perfect use would come along. I'm planning to have it reupholstered but I have to decide the fabric. I figure I'll know it when I see it, but I'm planning to make a decision this weekend.
I purchased a blue velvet ottoman while at the Habitat ReStore in Hickory for the ReStore ReStyle event. It was a sample piece from a very popular NC furniture company. On that same day I also scored a boat load of fabric, including both gray and white upholstery grade. I had my workroom create striped panels alternating the two fabrics. Very excited to be picking them up later this week.Rugs USA
The rug was a Rugs USA sale find. I love it. It's one I've been wanting to use for a while.
A mid-week stop at the Pottery Barn Outlet yielded this cool and colorful "Hello Beauty Full" print. It was less than $20 and I just couldn't leave it. It just made me happy, even if it was from PB Teen. Hey, I'm a kid a heart.

I also picked up two of these bulletin boards. One is the exact same as the one pictured above, but the other is a black and white dot. I wasn't very concerned about the fabric, since I plan to recover them anyway.
With the exception of a Chinoiserie lamp, that about sums it up for what I currently have for the project. The biggest element missing is the storage I desperately need to incorporate. I'm thinking floor to ceiling shelving to accommodate fabric samples, accessories, etc. This one literally makes me drool.
