Oh my gosh everyone, you are not going to believe this coincidence!!
So, remember in Week 1 I mentioned an Ikea Rast Hack was part of the plan,
well my hack was inspired by designer Ryan Korban's beautiful chest covered in ostrich skin.
Mine has yet to be crossed off the to-do list because I spent waaaaay too much time trying
to find a faux ostrich or emu in a color similar to his.
Here are a few samples I ordered after striking out at an insane number of local stores.
On the left is 'cream,' - not exactly what I was hoping for, but time was running out,
and if I didn't make a decision I was going to be in a pickle!
Guess what appears in the weekend section of the Wall Street Journal?
A tad freakish!
An article about Ryan Korban, in which they happen to mention,
"the ostrich skin took nine months to customize the pale color"
Arrrrgh!! Doesn't look like Joann's is my source!
Other than searching for that I found time to start on our ceiling fan,
I'm making it disappear as best as I can by blending it into the white ceiling,
inspired by this one! No time to take this baby down, keep your fingers crossed!
My time cruising the fabric stores wasn't a total loss, these will be appearing...
I scored these on Craigslist not long ago for $20 each, I think one of them will work,
with a little paint and fabric...
Have you noticed nothing is actually finished?
I'm so easily distracted, when I should be working I do things like
take pictures out the bathroom window. :)
Next week the headboard makes a debut! :)
