Rug fail

Photobucket

I am kind of sad today, because I will be returning my new cow-hide rug. I decided to go for more of a patchwork look because the texture was so beautiful, but this giant desk seems to dwarf it.
Photobucket Unfortunately, it is the largest size in that style so it is back to the drawing board for floor coverings (which is extra depressing because I managed to hunt around and find the rug on clearance for $230!).
I have also changed the game plan ever so slightly by adding a few fun pops of yellow and will be searching for a fun fabric or curtain with hints of yellow to cover my armoire (we had to take the doors off the closet to accomodate it).
And my newly upholstered chair has me kind of falling in love with it sans-slipcover. I can always add one later, so we may just leave it alone for now.

We've also hung our drapes. Bringing in the touch of yellow we added whimsical pompoms in a bright canary on the bottom.

For $9 in pompoms and some stitch-witchery we jazzed up our Ikea curtains in about 30 minutes of ironing.

As for closet progress, I found these glamorous green glass wall hooks from Urban Outfitters. They will be the perfect spot to hang the next days outfit! The fabric was a super sale find ($3/meter) and will be used to do a fun pillow for our chair.

Which was also covered in the same sand colored fabric, but I am definitely slipcovering this one in a soft white linen.

We've had some hits and misses this week, but it is coming along!
