This past week, I had a minor setback.
Remember I mentioned in my last post, the buffet server I purchased secondhand?
Well here it is. I bought this piece prior to renovating our home (specifically for the living room).
The plan was to paint and refinish this piece. . . which I did. . .
And I hated it. The style and size of this massive buffet server just looked so awkward in my living room.
As soon as we saw it in place, about five seconds later it came back out. I kicked myself afterwards for not taking a picture to show you guys.
Since that point, I’ve been frantically searching stores to find a replacement piece that isn’t too big or bulky.
If you are following me on Instagram, I’ve been having a little fun with gold spray paint.
Since I have yet to talk about my furniture pieces that I’m using for the space—I figured, I might as well leave you in suspense until next week 🙂
(I know, I’m a horrible person!)
As for the built-ins, the shelves are still missing but the trim is up and the lights are in. It looks so grand in person! I really can’t wait to see this in its full glory!
I have a ton of finishing touches that I need to accomplish in the next few days. It’s going to be a major push.
I know one thing for sure, I’m definitely looking forward to all the big reveals next week!
I love your updates! Looks like the room is really coming together. Great job!
Thanks Jackie! Can’t wait to share it all next week 🙂
Looking fabulous so far. Can’t wait to see more.
Thanks Marty! Looking forward to your awesome closet reveal!
Oh, too bad that it didn’t work in the space… Good luck finding a replacement! And all the rest looks beautiful 🙂
It’s a bummer because I loved the piece when I bought it, however, along the way our design changed and it no longer fit it:( Thanks for stopping by!
The trim work and lights look beautiful on your built-ins! I bet you’re just itching to accessorize those shelves. Good luck with your hunt!
You have no idea! I’m dying to accessorize 🙂
Oh, I hate it when you plan something and then it looks nothing like how you wanted it to! Sounds like you have a good backup plan and that things are going well – love that gold! 🙂
Thanks Brit! I sort of had a gut feeling it wouldn’t fit in. My fault though, I sort of changed my design plan as we went along :s
OMG can’t wait you make me crazy.
Hehe sorry Rose! I will post some sneak peaks on Instagram this week 🙂
Gorgeous!!! I’m am so in love with those built ins! I am excited to see it all finished!
I am so in love with your built-ins! The added lights are just amazing. Can’t wait to see it all put together:)
Those built-ins and the lights are fabulous! I can’t wait to see the whole space all put together. Good luck with your furniture search. That’s a bummer when you have something in mind only to find it won’t work.
This space looks so good! Sorry the buffet didn’t work out… bummer. Hopefully you’ll find a better fit this week. Can’t wait to see it all next week!
Aw shucks, too bad about the buffet server! I know it’ll all come together beautifully, though. Good luck in the final stretch!
