so, as i mentioned last week, i did a whole lot of painting in this place. painted the walls (black horizon by benjamin moore, which i borrowed from this client's project. we used it on the dresser, and it is the black on the wall. it's a cool midnight blue-black.), the ceiling (standard ceiling white), and the bookshelves (a dark gray color that i hand mixed). i'll get you guys better pictures of the sofa, and soon i'll show you my bookshelves, but for today, i thought i'd give a little early peek of my sofa area.
(yes, i am aware that the arms of our sofa look AWFUL. mika has scratched the poor sofa to death. its guts are hanging out. i'm doing something about it soon - just still trying to decide what exactly i want to do! and, i didn't straighten out the pillows before i took this photo.)
anyway, as you know, i sold my side tables and coffee table, so for now, i just have the little black garden stool sitting in front of it. there will be a real coffee table on it in the near future! i bought those mirrored side tables from target. i'd like to replace the knobs on them, but i haven't done that yet. the yellow chair you are seeing to the left (i'll give you a more detailed tour soon!) is from scarlett loves rhettro here in atlanta...i painted it a high-gloss yellow. and, last but not least, i did that painting thats above our sofa yesterday, as inspired by a painting that i saw in lucky magazine this month.
oh! and i got the little brass swing arm lamps from goodwill last week. i bought the shades at lowe's.
there are still a lot to do in here...i have quite the list, but i guess the majority of the work is done, and it's now just time to hunt down the things that i have pictured in my mind. and, as a disclaimer, i do want to raise the height of the painting above the sofa a bit, and lower the painting that is in the side of this photo. just fyi :)
(picasa wouldn't let me reverse the order of the photos...this post is a real mess! sorry, guys)
