If you haven’t seen our previous DIY post, I suggest you check it out before scrolling any further. Otherwise you’ll be a bit lost… ya know, like missing the first part of a movie!
We bought this leaning wall mirror over 4 years ago and originally loved the dark black wood. Sadly it was never fully utilized during our remodel and basically became a dust collector. Ever the recyclers, we decided to keep the sucka and give it the life it deserved. Prior to moving into the new loft, Eric sketched up a furniture placement and found the perfect spot for it. Unfortunately the black color just wasn’t working. This was a pretty easy fix, after all we’ve gotten quite good at painting dark frames a lighter color (if anyone has seen our huge frame wall at the work studio you know what we’re talking about). You could say we’re PRO’S!
Left – ‘Mr Black’ (Original), Middle – ‘Mr White’ (Primed), Right – ‘Mr Blonde’ (Michael Madsen).
Each stage was photographed throughout the day so please excuse the lighting difference.
Wa-lah! Madsen now has a new home and provides us the perfect location to indulge in our vain tendencies. We placed it at the end of our (almost) faux hallway and slapped Mr. Cardboard Moose-head above it. I think he needs a better name but we’re still working on it.
Our white walls are the perfect backdrop for this POP of color. You’ll also notice our killer industrial work stools we scored at MAST. They fit perfectly. Like to take a stab at who’s is who’s?
Remember those credenza’s! Here they are in all their glory… well almost. We placed the two units smack dab next to each other to get the length we originally needed/wanted. The smaller unit hides our entertainment equipment and the larger unit houses our other crap. It’s the perfect amount of storage.
***UPDATE – TV is now mounted on the wall and we’ve added a few more modern vignettes.
These three brass owls were found at Social Science Junk Shop for $18. SCHWING! The 1939 GE Art Deco three blade fan was accidentally found at an unassuming antique store in Phoenix for $40. BOOM!
A few more vignettes of some recently found objects (shot on the iPhone for Instagram). We are a little obsessed with Instagram. If you are too, you can follow us @ casiafletcher & unluckyscholar. Look forward to it!
We still have a ton of finishing touches for the loft and desperately want to finish them. It doesn’t quite have the cozy-mod (as we like to call it) feel we’re looking for. Next up, massive artwork, a sweet wine rack, RAD shelving and some soft textures.
BTW, if anyone knows of/has found a dope 5×8 Chevron patterned rug in navy or black PLEASE TELL US (insert humungous thank you).
