Twinterest Tuesday: A Weekly Pinterest Round-up (9-27-11)

Posted on by Milla Posted in Inspiration, Pinterest | 2 Comments

It is Twinterest Tuesday. I’m not really happy about it. Pinterest wasn’t friendly to us. In fact, it was rather slow and we had to sift through a lot to find some great things. Sorry this list is shorter than usual, but nevertheless, here it is:

Moodboard Monday: Four Days Sooner…Milla’s bedroom

Posted on by Milla Posted in Inspiration, Mood Boards | Leave a comment

As the title suggests, this should be a Moodboard Monday post, however I was anxious to finish this mood board for my bedroom. So just pretend that today is Monday and not Thursday night.

Back to my bedroom…it’s been a challenge to complete my room as well as this mood board. See, I’m really picky about the accessories that will be a main focus in my room. Right now, I have all white bedding, with white lamps, a white dresser and white nightstands. The large mirror above my bed is also white. I love the brightness of a mostly white color scheme, but I need some sexy colors in here! Let’s start with my favorite color…the lovely and always reliable Turquoise.  I absolutely had to have this color in my room, no exceptions. So just a few weeks ago, Kah and I reupholstered this chair. Then I plan to add more bold and bright colors,like pink and yellows. What color is brighter than yellow? None, which is why it’s the color of the sun. Wow super corny and lame I know, just check out my mood board below.

Twinterest Tuesday yet again. I hope every one had a fabulous weekend. So…this was one of the more difficult roundups to complete. There seemed to be an insane number of food and “men I hope to marry” pins this week. I understand how food recipes are pin-worthy, but the latter…um who cares. Either way view the goodies below:

The Floral Disaster: A chair in distress

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Furniture, Inspiration, Thrift Shopping | 9 Comments

I bought a small scale chair at a nearby thrift store a few months ago with the intention to reupholster it, but other projects have taken precedence instead. It has a floral red and green  flocked velvet pattern on the front and solid green velvet on the backside. In other words it’s ugly! I can’t help but look at this chair and think about Christmas decorations. I’ll just show you instead of going on and on…

Tuesday seems to roll around so fast. I felt like I just did a roundup. Anyway, today is Twinterest Tuesday! It’s the last Tuesday of August. Not too sad to see it go this year though. August, please blame Mother Nature for that. She let you down. Excuse my rant, view the goodies below:

Where Did You Get That Art? I Must Have It (Art with a Vintage Flair)

Posted on by Milla Posted in art, Inspiration, Vintage | Leave a comment

Recently we’ve received several compliments on the artwork hanging above our beautiful chair. We purchased it at our local Goodwill, however it’s available for a reasonable price of $30.00 here (sorry, not framed). And because we like vintage art so much we decided to do a roundup of posters available for purchase online. If you’re stuck under a hurricane/storm advisory like us and have nothing else to do check them out below:

Here’s another dose of Twinterest Tuesday! We love doing this round-up because it gives us a reason not to feel wrong for never closing out Pinterest.com on our browsers. And one of our visitors actually found an item from last weeks post at the thrift store for $6. So glad we were able to twinspire someone. So here’s what caught our attention this week:
