Some More House Progress

I guess it's about time for a house progress update! Everything related to the wedding has definitely taken precedent over the last few months. However, that also means a lot of new additions in registry gifts! Although a lot of what I'm sharing today are some furniture projects. It has been a lot of work. But also a lot of fun to watch some of these pieces come together! We have a big list of plans to tackle once we have settled down after the wedding. So there will be many more of these posts to come!

Console table
One of my favorite projects so far has been this console table. We found the table at an estate sale for $70. I found the mirror on Facebook Marketplace (for I think about $125), replaced the hardware from the shop in Cobb Antique Mall, and decorated with antiques I had been collecting. I also filled some of the pieces with dried and faux flowers, and I re-potted this faux orchid I found at Tuesday Morning!

Guest room
I still need to hang some things on the wall in here. But I up-cycled the desk, it was left in the basement from the previous homeowner.  I have already shared the process on Instagram. I had the toughest time trying to get the right shade of blue. The first chalk paint I bought ended up many shades lighter I expected. So it took lots of color mixing to get this French blue hue. I also found these curtains for a great deal on Wayfair, and I re-painted this shelving unit that was originally black. Plus the chair is from Pier 1 (but this one is super similar), and the rug is from Overstock.

This has mostly just been filling in registry gifts...and my mom made some custom curtains! We also re-painted and added cushions to the kitchen table chairs that were once in my parent's house. This experience was another paint color adventure, that ended in just selecting another color entirely. I was going for more of a slate blue, but the first color looked purple. So we ended up with a "Coastal Blue" instead. I also shared that whole process on Instagram!

Thanks for reading!
