Retail Therapy and latest Instagram pics & random flicks..

My towers and stand are going thru a new look. I am keeping the doors off and debated on painting the insides but I kind of like the contrast of the gold and sour apple green. This is temporary styling as I still have way more stuff to spray paint and edit.

Over the weekend I tried my hand at calligraphy. These will be framed with a white mat and black or gold frame for my den. Which I am still debating on gallery wall versus leaned on the wall. I’m leaning toward….leaning them. #nopun

Bought these shot glasses from the Goodwill and they were used for the first time. They are like a gunmetal ombre color and I love them. Ever see something thrifting and leave it and later regret it? Well that’s what I feel about these as there were at least 8 and I only bought 2 with the intent of using it as a votive candle holder. Smh. Why didn’t I buy them all to style my bar cart (that I don’t have yet?)

I bought some duct tape that I was going to use as faux molding but didn’t like the texture. Since I misplaced the receipt, I started covering the chair rail. Then googled if it would damage the wood and found out it leaves a residue when moved and if placed on the wall, it will take off paint and pieces of dry wall. Now I need suggestions on what to do with the tape? Kinda sucks because I wanted to do an art deco styled design on my black wall in the den.

I recently found out Z Gallerie is located in Chicago and I am beyond thrilled. I first visited there when I was in Atlanta for my 30th bday. I didn’t want to leave. Turns out, CB2 is also in Chicago so when I go down to Ikea soon, I will definitely make a day of shopping by visiting the others. Now if they open a location in Milwaukee….

    Nice. Busy weekend lady.. I see you’ll be hitting up all my favorite stores when you’re in Chicago. I’m on the freaking phone with Z Gallerie as we speak. Be sure to sign up for their trade program.
