Have I ever mentioned my love for helping people pull together all the elements
of creating a beautiful home ? Or my love for gold accents or leopard prints? :)
I'm truly grateful for this little blog and all of the people I've come in contact with because
of it, yesterday we put a few finishing touches on my client's home. They're ready for a fun
weekend, packed with out-of-town family coming in to celebrate their sweet little one's first
birthday. I haven't taken the final pictures yet, but it's bold and colorful and has me
re-thinking my neutral ways. Here's another sneak peek.
Mr. Client helped out with another diy last week, he spruced up a pair of x-benches that I
reupholstered with a coat of gold paint.
Before taking this photo I asked Mrs. Client if she had anything I could use for styling, a bag
or shoes? She brings me designer shoes that are so cute no one is going to look at the bench!
We started with two of these X Benches and used 1/2 yard of fabric.
It was a quick update, the leather seat easily unscrews from the base.
If you can wrap a present you can do it! But here's how I get professional looking corners:
After I've secured the fabric I cut out a small square to lessen the bulkiness at the corner,
then continue wrapping as you would a present and stapling at each step.

There you go, a simple diy for the day!
