Project Royal

Project Royal wrapped a while back and I'm finally ready to show off this gray and purple nursery I had the privilege of working on for a sweet baby girl! Remember, the room started out as a guest bedroom?

And here is baby girl's nursery now! 

The walls were painted SW Light French Gray and Grape Mist on the ceiling. The crib is the Emelia crib from Restoration Hardware and is no longer available. The bedding is also Restoration Hardware. The glider, pillow, and drapes are custom and available through me. 

My client absolutely loves the new space and said it's very calming. She spends a lot of time rocking and feeding her new miracle in there so she needed a peaceful retreat. That glider is so amazingly comfortable too! 

This was such an enjoyable project and my client was fabulous to work with which made my job that much easier!

Damaged Goods

Remember this table from Home Decorators I was planning on ordering for the gameroom?

Yep, it arrived! I carried each metal piece up our tall flight of stairs, then carried the top and bottom solid wood pieces that weighed a ton up the very tall flight of stairs, and stared in disbelief! DAMAGED! The same corner on the top and bottom pieces was basically ripped off. Good job UPS for damaging in transit! So, back downstairs it went and sat and sat and sat. Finally after several more phone calls UPS arrived to return it. 

now what you ask? I searched for a different option and found this:

I ordered this Safavieh table from Target knowing it could easily be returned if there were issues. And yes there were issues! DAMAGED...chunks of wood and missing paint in several areas. And, just fyi, the color description says cream online when in fact the table is dark gray! 

I really like the look so I ordered another one and a chair showed up instead! Are you kidding me? Now, I'm waiting for another table to arrive! Thankfully UPS promptly picked up the chair! We shall see if a table comes this time. 4th time is a charm right?!
