I'm having to work so creatively within a limited budget, and so much of what I need can't really be sourced from your usual retailers or box stores. The success of this project really hinges on hitting the pavement and finding the right antiques and vintage pieces to make this space feel truly old-world and "collected." It requires lots of time and lots of luck!
There's just a lot that has to go right in order for this project to come together, and the thrifting/vintage gods must, for the next couple of weeks, rain amazing finds down upon us. So keep your fingers crossed with me please (gulp.)
Here's where we're at this week.
(Last week was paint, rugs, and lighting, in case you need a recap.)
They're the Ikea Aina curatins in white that I'm such a fan of, and don't worry, they're not going to look like that! I'm installing some basic mdf baseboard trim from Home Depot as a window cornice to hide the inexpensive (yet functional) Ikea curtain hardware.
Like I said, fingers crossed people, fingers crossed!
