I feel like the last week was one of those titled, "One step forward, two steps back." In all honesty, more progress has happened than I give credit for, and I've been quite the busy chica making it happen. So, you be the judge...
On Project Bayhouse:
this lady's tutorial on how to stain pre-varnished wood without having to strip it down (thank you, Pinterest gods). Genius lady, genius products. No need for me to reinvent the wheel, but if you have a similar project in mind, go HERE, and follow it. You'll be amazed.
Remember I mentioned I kept one of the bedroom set pieces that came with the Bayhouse? Well, faux shabby finish went to black glossy madness.
So, all that felt like major progress.
Then, I hit a wall with the rest of the bedroom design. I felt so good with where it was going - which is to say, no cliche beachiness. But, something about the Persian runner feels wrong, and the overall scheme just uninspired.
