|the one time you will see this entry looking this clean|
- The paint color is by Martha Stewart and is called "Seal." Seal as in seal swimming in the ocean, not as in Seal, Heidi Klum's ex. (Although with Heidi leaving him, his mood most likely is this gray color, poor Seal.) The paint looks brown on the chip, but goes up gray on the wall (it is available at Home Depot). Not really sure why it is photographing so black. Trust me, it is a charcoal gray. My friend Sammi was the guinea pig of this color because she used it in her guest bathroom and it looked great, especially with a stark white trim for contrast. Thanks for saving me Paint Angst, Sammi!
- The front door is original and we stripped about a gazillion layers of paint off of it to get back to the pretty wood. Now I am thinking about painting it red (kidding!).
- The table is (supposedly) an antique. I doubt it. Antiques are built to last. With this piece, the drawers fall out if you sneeze near it.
- The little balls in the glass container are spongey Earth globes from a local toy store ($3 each). The kids like to throw them at each other.
- The glass container is from the high-end kitchen store, bought on sale and at a nice discount when I worked there.
- The wood (silver color) tray for the mail is from West Elm.
- The Paris poster is vintage.
- The airline map is a United Airlines board game from the 1930's. How cool is that?
- Almost forgot, the "crystal" lamp and fabric shade are (of course) from Target.
- The seashell wreath is from San Diego from last time I was visiting my mom.
