Loving the boho chic vibe right now, and Raj on 3rd has all kinds of items that you can use to build that look in your home. Some are expensive (they have lots of gorgeous inlay items) and some are more suited to a rehabber’s budget.
Highlights from my recent trip:
Raj is located at 7961 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA, 90048
Yes, I am all about inlay. Yes, I have been debating getting a similar effect with stencil, yes I struggled to find just the right side table to stencil, and, yes, I had a bit of trouble learning the “right” way to stencil. The key seems to be patience, which I severely lack.
And since I lack patience, I want to give you an update on how the stenciling project is coming along. It isn’t quite finished yet, but I just can’t wait.
Isn’t it just GORGEOUS!? I have painted the different underhang-y parts (we’re technical here) with different designs to see what looks best, and since the legs are curved, it has been a bit hard to line the stencil up just right, but I’m still pretty pleased.
I’ve been re-tooling and repainting the table trays. Adding accents, changing around the colors, etc. More pictures up soon, I promise!
I’ve been stenciling away on my side table. Wow- stenciling is WAY harder than I expected. Mainly because it requires a lot of patience, which I am short on! But it is going to be so gratifying to finally finish, and I’m already OBSESSED with the direction the side table is headed.
I have a table and set of six chairs that I’ve been working on between projects for about five months. Wow, I can’t believe it’s been so long. These suckers have to get outta my house– they’re positively taking over my living room!
Speaking of living room…
I’ve been obsessed re-doing the whole thing. Yeah, I may be moving anytime now since school is about to start, but who cares? I’ve been looking for a slipcover for my couch (which sounds a lot easier than it is.) If you have any suggestions, please, please, please let me know!
I ended up finding one at Ikea (the devil!) that matched the measurements of my couch, but once I lugged it home, the arms were too short (rats!) Returning the thing was much harder than actually buying it. Has anyone else noticed that there are so many people “working” at Ikea, but there are only ever 1-2 that seem to actually be doing much?
