House Check-In

Tuesday, February 18

It’s been about a month since I posted our house checklist for 2014 and so far we have managed to check a few things off the list. So here’s a little round up of what we’ve been up to around here…

#1 Find a piece of artwork for the stairwell


I scored this Gray Malin photo on One Kings Lane – which I have been lusting over for a while. We had it framed at Jerry’s Artarama. PS: If you live in Houston this is an awesome place for affordable frames and custom framing! 

Buy demilunes for the entry way

We used a local carpenter to custom-make two demilunes for the entry way. After looking around town for months and not locating anything that fit our dimensions, we decided this would be the easiest & cheapest way to go. They will be ready in about 4-6 weeks from now and then we get to pick the wood stair or paint color. Stay tuned for pics!

#3 Buy a bar cart for the dining room


I caved and bought this beauty at Target last week! Affordable and stylish :). I styled it on Saturday with a few cute items I found at Home Goods. 

#4 Find throw pillows for the living room chairs

My mom came into town in January and insisted on teaching me how to use a sewing machine. Our first project was a pillow for my master bedroom. We also found this fabric for the living room....and I've almost finished one of them (besides sewing up that last side)! 3 more to go.. 

So there you have it! What have you been up to lately? Checking anything off your to-do list?
