our guest bedroom.

Lucite Bench

It all started with this scarf.  I used this custom frame to showcase it.

The curtains are from here.  I had this greek key trim sewn along the edges to add a little bit of personality.  The lucite rod is custom.  Please email me if you are interested in one.

Dresser Vignette

We took our old Crate and Barrel dresser and updated it with these ring pulls.

Greys & Pinks

The bedside tables are from HomeGoods, we used the same pulls on those too.  Many of you have contacted me about the acrylic frame.  If you are interested in one, please email me.

Vanity Tray

The mirrored tray is from HomeGoods.

Guest Bedroom

The lamps are from Ikea, the pink pillows are from HomeGoods and the grey pillow was made with  this fabric.  You can get the chandy here.

I love this piece.  It was a Mother’s Day gift made by E last year.

It took a long time to find just the right paper for the ceiling.  I was thrilled that the winner was from Home Depot!  The chairs were a Craigslist find that I reupholstered.

As you may know, the curtains were custom painted.

Remember the Nate Berkus turtle shells that I painted?  Aren’t they fab?

Found this needlepoint on Craiglist.  Had her made into a pillow.  We had leftover turquoise linen from the wingbacks, so I had two pillows made.  The Schumacher pillows are from Etsy.

We love our new living room.  What I love most is that we didn’t break the bank creating it.

Pink and Purple Makeover!

Remember this ottoman from HomeGoods?
Well, she has gotten a major makeover.

And this rocking chair that I bought for $20 on CraigList?  The frame used to be a dilapidated brown. (Sorry, I can’t find the original CL pic.)  We stripped it and painted it a high-gloss black.  Here she is before the new fabric…

And here she is now.
We still have a ways to go, but her room is really coming together.  We need to stay on track so that we can make room for her new homework desk that she will be getting for Christmas.
More pics of her room tomorrow!

‘Round Here.

I have been wrestling with the layout of our living room for years.  We’ve moved the sofa on every wall in the room.  Last weekend we rearranged the furniture once again to incorporate a buffet that I got on clearance at HomeGoods.  Interestingly enough, now the sofa is not up against any wall, and we used the buffet as a sofa table that is adjacent to the front door.  I LOVE how it opens up the entire room.  

 Now I will need to work on centering the butterfly prints and find some new items to style those DD Tables.  E actually styled them here… not so bad, eh?  The most exciting part?  I have saved my pennies and the wingback chairs are FINALLY going out for reupholstery in two weeks.  H E L L O   T U R Q U O I S E   L I N E N.   They are seriously the best buy I’ve ever made on Craig’s List-  so comfortable!  We are loving this new setup and spent more time in our living room last weekend than we have in the entire eight years we’ve lived here.  Lou has even set up her own restaurant.  (Can you see Rudolph above?  He was her first customer.)  She’s been getting great use out of our new ottomans!

For those of you who have followed the progress of this room, you are probably asking where my DIY lamps are… No fear, they have been repurposed in the foyer.
I just love repurposing items in our house to new spaces… It almost makes me feel like I got away with something!

God Bless Our Pad.

Those of you who have been following Kiki’s List for a while may remember this post on a Craig’s List Score of a lifetime.  
After seeing this picture in Lonny magazine in the Summer of 2010, I became obsessed with finding a pillow like this and quickly realized that they are not available.   There was a framed needlepoint from 1977 that was available for $10.  It looked a little something like this…
After $7 of fabric from JoAnne’s and a down pillow form, she’s now a gem that we will keep forever.

Her home is in our living room, where there are a lot of exciting changes taking place.  Stay tuned!
