Welcome to the 171st Metamorphosis Monday!
Greetings! How was your weekend? What did you work on this weekend? Do anything fun?
I have a couple of small little updates to share this week for Metamorphosis Monday. I decided to remove the TV from the office since I found I only turned it on a couple of times a month. You can see it in this older photo to the right of the wallpaper organizer, beside the lamp. I guess I hadn’t added the ottoman yet when this pic was taken.
I found the organizer at Marshalls for just $24.99. (They also had it in black in case you are looking for something similar but need it in black.)
The top section holds a folder filled with notes on things I need to work on.
The bottom section is where I stash away things needing to be filed. This has worked so much better than having stacks of little papers and post-it notes squirreled away on my desk. The file organizer came with the “to do” and “to file” labels already in place. Pretty cool! I’ve really enjoyed having it here on the desk.
Okay, here’s a pic this morning during daylight hours. For those who have been asking about Mr. Max, this is his fave spot to be, furring up the ottoman. 😉 I have another little update planned for this room…hope to share it soon. (If you’re new to reading BNOTP, you’ll find the full transformation of this room from boy’s bedroom to home office/sewing room/craft room in this post: Pottery Barn Bedford Office Renovation.)
2nd Mini-Metamorphosis: Pottery Barn Knock-0ff, Shell Chargers:
Recently, I came across some Pottery Barn Shell Chargers I really liked on eBay. They ultimately sold for $233 dollars, way more than I was willing to invest! I decided to try and make my own. This weekend I worked on the other five chargers and here’s how they are looking so far.
The one I completed for the previous post is there on the back row in the center. The others have their biggest shells glued in place and I’ve just started the process of filling in with the smaller shells. I’m happy to report that it’s definitely going faster now that I kind of an idea of how I want to place the shells. Yay!
So hopefully you’ll be seeing these in a table setting sometime in the next few weeks.
Update: Completed filling in all the shells on the chargers. See the final results in this post: Pottery Barn Knockoff Shell Chargers
You’ll find a little tutorial for making these here: Pottery Barn Knock-off Shell Chargers.
So that’s what’s shaking around these parts. Can’t wait to see all the Before and Afters linked for this Met Monday!
