Home Office Progress

Lots of things are happening around the house these days. We're having a holiday party this year and the pressure is on to finish a few projects before then.

I hung the vintage chandelier in my office instead of in the bathroom, because I'm a rebel like that.

It's looks soooo good. This room needs the bling factor big time.

You may have already noticed that I painted. It looks black but it is very very dark gray. Apologies but you guys are going to have to suffer through a lot of night pics for a while. It gets dark at like 5pm now and I don't get home before that so it is what it is.

Still needs a second coat but with some glossy white furniture, colorful fabrics, gold pretties, it's going to be great.

I went shopping in my bordering-on-a-problem swatch collection for possible curtain and upholstery fabrics. I chose the floral one on the bottom left for curtains. It's from Mood in NYC. It's not listed online so I called to order. Then a nightmare happened.

I remember it being about $25/yard when I picked up, like pretty clearly remember it. But when I sent the associate the photo of the swatch she said it was $50/yard. I need 10 yards. 

I. Am. Crushed.

Swears were spouted (in my mind) tears were almost shed, feet were stomped. I picked out my wall color thinking this was going to be my curtain fabric. I know, I should have planned better but I didn't. My second choice is the on in the top right but I'm pretty sure the place I got this doesn't carry it anymore. I'm going to check it out this weekend. If that doesn't work I'm pretty much back to square one and I reeeally wanted to get these curtains done before our party. Not to mention the fact you can totally see in this room at night from the street, not cool.

Anything crossed of your list lately?
