tuesday’s find

Love this little sofa from Urban Outfitters. It’s totally affordable ($579.00)and it comes in a pretty blue that would work in so many color schemes.  I love it for the bedroom as a place to throw your clothes. Ha ha! How cool would this be in a college dorm in lieu of a not so cool futon. So chic!

It used to come in other colors but it looks like the blue is it for now.

Well I’m still not done with the first (the bath). My chatty tile guy is taking a bit longer than expected ie: I’ll be there at 7:30 and here we are at 7:45. Ugh! It will be a miracle if he is done my Friday. At least he is doing a great job!  So mentally I’m moving onto the next project….the patio. It need a major overhaul. Torn up, regraded, gutter spouts buried.  Oh yeah and maybe remove a GIANT tree that site in the middle of my cute little courtyard.  Here are some pics to inspire the design.

WOW!

I'd love to use some real furniture for the patio covered in outdor fabrics
