Week 5 of the One Room Challenge is over (GULP) and our Primary Suite update is slowly but surely coming along. It still feels like I’m mostly shopping at this point, but I did get to install our new closet knobs and let me tell you it’s like the paparazzi at an award show are snapping every time I walk into our closet. It’s majestic and the prismatic showiness definitely dresses up our white laminate closet built-ins. I also may not be able to go into our closet the next time I have a migraine, but I’m okay with it. I mean, look at these knobs!
Did I mention there are TWENTY THREE of these crystal beauties living in our closet now? And that to change each one I had to remove the drawer faces before I could change the knob out? That’s 73 screws removed, 23 swapped out for new ones to fit the knobs, and 73 screwed back into place. I had to spread it out over 2 days because the kids got bored until they saw how sparkly it was going to be.
I made a call on the hardware for our main vanity area – we’re going Gustavian with some ring pulls and I needed some help to picture what size would be right between a 2″ or 1 5/8″ pull. I drew some rough circles (note to self: buy a compass!) on black construction paper to visualize what would be a better scale on our drawers with their inset drawers facings. Care to guess the winner?
It’s the 2″ circle! What a nail biter that was.
This week I also spent a majority of my limited free time shopping for new sconces before deciding I really don’t like any of what I’m seeing on the market that fits flush with or under our window frame better than what we have. Let me know if you need a brass dual light bathroom sconce, I bet if you give me your specs I can direct you to what to buy since I looked at every. single. one.
I am debating whether to flip ours to uplights, and the brass spray paint arrives for me to test next week. A couple different shade styles are on the way too.
More paint samples arrived, in darker versions of Vert de Terre and French Gray, and an alternate bright green for the pocket doors in the bathroom. Left to right: Lichen, Yeabridge Green, Treron. ALL gorgeous, and I’m glad I got the extra samples.
I also got a couple of popular whites suggested by the Farrow and Ball swatch groupings on their product pages: top is Slipper Satin, bottom is Lime White. On the door, the top is Breakfast Room Green and bottom is Yeabridge Green.
And here’s a look at our super relaxing set up right now with artwork added to help with paint decisions and wallpaper samples on the bed. Swatches are French Gray (left), Vert de Terre (top), Lichen(large on bottom right).
Anddd here’s where everything goes at bedtime. HA.
Next up will be ordering paint and wallpaper supplies, the actual paint, and hoping that pieces that arrive are actually decent in person!!
C’est tout for now,
