You can catch up on this massive project over here! We have officially moved on to the stage of occupying this space with mattress on floor. It’s awesome. It makes me want to live in and embrace clean, simple living (though a nightstand for bedside reading will be super when we get there).
There is a greater plan forming though we’re not 100% set on any particular furniture pieces just yet. 99% certain on that gorgeous leather chair and pretty happy with the idea of a grey textured/upholstered bed with white bedding. We are partnering with Wayfair on this next phase of the project and it has been a lot of fun to come up with idea boards based off their vast selection. It is both humbling and challenging to collaborate with a sponsor where you’re sourcing most (not all) of your furniture from one place. We are gracious and slow at choosing… a thank you to their team for putting up with us. The above is almoooooostttt there.
To be completely honest, we’ve been living the mattress-on-the-floor lifestyle for so long now that it doesn’t really bother me (the above table saw, orange buckets and ramboard have since found new homes). I think that’s why it’s felt okay to stretch out the furnishing portion of the project until we find a style fit that really works well for both Kevin and me.
Will keep you posted on how this evolves. Itching to finish up the last of the bathroom details (Kev has plans to weld a frame for a large mirror and he’s recently finished building a giant barn door from scratch) but also good with waiting it out. That’s not always the case with renovating projects (oh man, usually I’m clawing to finish them up), but I think it’s the right attitude to have when so much of the work is DIY. Practice makes perfect.
Cheers and happy midweek! Sending lots of sunshine from San Diego.
