Stop! Project time! Part II

Photobucket

Let’s talk about colors! We’ve decided to go with a darker gray for the foyer/entry area.
I really like the two gray colors options below.

We might even go as dark as our master bedroom color below.
 
 For the rest of the entry and going all the way up the staircase into the second floor, 
I want to do a lighter gray. I love this option below by Sarah Richardson.

Or we might stick to the current gray we have in the dining room/ living
 room & office

 

Painting should be completed by this weekend. Stay tuned for after pictures next week
 and new decor options tomorrow!

Last month we replaced the chandelier in our dining room.Photobucket

The two pendants above our bar matched the old chandelier,
(sorry for the crappy
phone pictures) I think it’s time to replace them as well.

I really like these two options from Chiasso – each are only $88 + free shipping.

1. Agave pendant lamp

2. City pendant lamp

Thoughts? Which option do you like best? Neither?

I’ve been wanting to replace this light fixture in our dining room – FOR EVER!
It’s not terrible, it’s just not my taste at all. We only had limited options to choose
from when our house was under construction, this was the best option available.

I had my eye on this chandelier from Lamps Plus for a while but the price was just
a little too much for us. Well, I found one almost identical to it at Overstock.com for a
fraction of the price. Score!

Needless to say, I’m more than excited about this purchase. I will post pictures as
soon as it arrives.

What a little (ok, huge) difference pine straw makes?

I also painted the planters on the deck, I used Rust-Oleum spray

paint in Sun Yellow.

All we need is this Greek Key Outdoor rug and we should be done!

Ohh and remember the Dwell bench I was going to order? Well last night I had it

in my cart and my the time I went to check out it WAS OUT OF STOCK!!! I called

Target and they said to check back Saturday, that it’s not out of stock permanently.
