If you want to see what changes have already taken place, you can read all about it here. This is how things are looking today.
Pretty much the way I left it back in July. I did hang the basket I bought from Donna at Horton's Flea Market. I thought it would serve as a good spot for single socks to reunite with a partner.
I also added a little alabaster lamp. I bought it on my Springfield Antiques road trip in June for ten bucks. It came with a hideous shade (circa 1984) that I purposefully left behind. Finding a new shade to fit was a much more difficult task than I expected. I was relieved to finally find a shade that fits and looks pretty cute, too.
While the sock depot and cute lamp are nice, what I really needed was a fabric skirt to go around the counter and hide the giant bin o' dog food underneath it.
Well, I finally made up my mind the other day and purchased some fabric. I went with Waverly's Ballad Bouquet in robin's egg.
I was tempted by a more trendy, geometric fabric, but in the end, decided that the shabby chic, vintage look complements the room better. I think it fits in nicely with the basket and the lamp...
and the chippy chalkboard on the opposite wall...
Now I just need to find someone to sew the skirt for me. Be on the lookout for the big reveal in, oh, I don't know.... about 6 months?
So, what's your decorating motto? Hurry up and get 'er done OR Slow and steady someday it will be ready?
