Um, hi. I’m still alive. Just realized I haven’t blogged since OCTOBER. What. Can’t even believe it’s been so long. Good news is, I’m back to blogging and projecting. Maybe not quite on my old schedule, I don’t even know how I managed to do five posts a week before, but maybe I’ll share once a week from now on. Maybe. Don’t hold your breath or anything! So back to the projects!
As I shared in Part 1 (one million years ago), I moved my CB2 laptop table to the other side of the room. The other change I made, is less of a rearranging thing, but more of an addition-and-shift thing.
Ever since I got this bar cart this lamp has been on it. I’ve never had any complaints about it until I found something better to go there. It all started with a trip to the wonderful IKEA. I haven’t been to IKEA in about two years so I was really excited to make trip out there a few weeks ago. I got a few items, but my favorite thing I got was a fiddle leaf fig. I’ve been wanting one for sooo long, but the are 1) hard to find and 2) very expensive. Thankfully, IKEA is the king of the cheap and cool. This plant was only $12!
I already had this pot, but it was a weird yellow color so I went with my go-to gold color. I actually had a hard time deciding between white and gold but went with gold since I was already doing the little plant stands in gold. I usually use Rustoleum Metallic spray paint, but when I couldn’t find it at the store I took a risk and bought Krylon Metallic.
Turns out it was a good risk because I love this spray paint even better! Here’s a comparison:
Yalls just gonna hafta ignore the super blurry photo, ain’t nobody got time to retake photos. It’s my Buddha lamp if you can’t manage to see that. Anyway, I spray painted the Buddha lamp with the Rustoleum spray paint and the plant stand with the Krylon. I like how the Krylon one is a warmer tone and is more matte. I kind of what to redo the lamp now…
Back to the living room, here’s a pulled out view of my new fiddle leaf fig and the little plant stands.
Happy plant house!
