What's up

I've been busy at work on my client's house - painting, shopping, hanging, sewing.... And we still have things to do!

But I wanted to share some "during" pics with you all.

This is her entryway, and all of these pieces are new. We may still add some more, we'll see how the budget stretches.

Here is Chris lending a hand, and a level, to the gallery wall in her office. I thought it turned out really great, and she is excited about it too (yay!)

One view of her living room. We've painted her walls a silver-sage color, we added the mirror, side table, and lamp. We moved the furniture around a bit too. But we still lack pillows, curtains, floor lamp, more artwork, and possibly a plant. I'm trying to convince her that she's not going to kill it, and if it does die, she's not out a ton of money!

In her dining room, we've bought a plate-collage thing (a really great technical description, huh?) to go into the recessed arch in her wall, and we're planning on painting it a shade or so darker than the wall color. We still need drapes - which will match the living room drapes, and a few accessories.

So, tonight: finish pillows. Tomorrow: meet with client, talk drapes, talk stencils for her kitchen, and see about our game-plan for the rest of the week. Wednesday: meet with my sister at her new place to help pick paint colors. Thursday: dinner with friends who just had a new baby. Friday: meet with client possibly, or shop for her, or sew curtains.
Oh, and work from 9 to 5 at my day job through Thursday!
It's nice to be busy, and it's been fun to see this come around as it gets closer to being finished! But I'm definitely learning that I need to be more organized!! I'm wanting to get a calendar or list maker on my phone so that I might schedule my time more efficiently! I still need to finish my posts of my wedding recap for EAD, post something on their Living site (because I haven't for so long!!), oh, and clean the house/wash the dogs/put up laundry/do my nails..... so I'm hoping that getting a little more organized will help with all of this.
Hope you all had a nice weekend!
Happy Monday!

FUN!! I love the work you've done--especially the picture collage.

You're making me tired :)

The work looks great. I like the gallery wall, and I like the idea for the recessed area of the kitchen. I'm sure it'll turn out great!
