They’re for sale.
Suite Potato pieces have been selling like hot potatoes! So a suite replenishment was in order.
Pillows, chairs, benches and more on their way!
My lovely friend Courtney of Fancy Pants ever-so-kindly handed off these little doozies to me last summer.
Shizzzzam! Semi-gloss black. Twine-wrapped accents.
Now for sale in SUITE POTATO at FORGET ME NOTS.
This little potater has been so busy livin’ the corporate worker bee lifestyle and soaking up Special-Man-Friend-Time before he runs all over the country extinguishing fires – that she’s neglected her ol’ home suite home. Apparently, if you don’t update your blog with content, it doesn’t get updated.
But as fire season commences, so does my ample idle time – and it’s a good thing because I’ve got ideas oozing from my pores. Yeah. That’s right. Oozing.
And there’s no motivator like a Suite Potato sale! This little guy went home to a new family this week and we’ve got to begin restoring a new piece to occupy its space! Oh, the possibilities!
So watch this space. For realsies. Watch it.
I then coated the glass insert with black chalk spray paint (purchased from Home Depot).
Then I spiced it up with some hot kid-friendly white spots.
Now, in order to prime the chalk board, you MUST smear the entire surface with chalk and then wipe clean with a damp towel. This will prevent chalk scratches from remaining permanently ghosted into the surface.
After removal — doodle to your hearts desire!
And now a before/after recap:
I keep seeing these little pieces of eye candy all over design blogs and design magazines. Is it the throwback nature of wicker paired with more modern silhouettes in a seating gathering? Or perhaps it’s the inherent feeling of undeniable importance one feels when casually leaning against what can only be appropriately compared to a royal throne. Either way, Peacock Chairs are attracting tired bottoms like its the height of mating season. Get it? Because Peacocks use their feathers to attract their mates. Man, I slay myself. Guffaw, guffaw.
You get the idea? Good. Are your loins burning with anticipation of my own version of this devine trend? Stop it, I’m blushing.
After much brainstorming, I have concluded that a radiant red will suit this piece just fine. Perhaps I will finish it with a bronze base. And I am overstimulated with possible circular cushion patterns! Floral? Zebra? BOTH?!
Now let’s jazz up the base.
Now I’ve got to find myself a circular cushion and decide on some eye-popping patterns and transform this ugly duckling into the cockiest Peak’ that ever lived.
So watch this space. It’s about to get crazy.
