We’re in kitchen limbo right now (broken record much?), but good news! Our door is scheduled to arrive next week, and before the month’s end, we should have it installed! (If you’re counting, that would make it 8 months after we initially ordered Door #1.) In the meantime, we’ve spent a few hours on the really little details – photo magnets and decanting all the booze, naturally – and most recently, we collaborated with West Elm to fancy up our vintage hutch, too.
Using their very subtle, very pretty Chasing Paper wallpaper panels, we added a soft layer of pattern to the shelves. We can’t stop saying how cute it is. I finished the makeover in a couple of hours, and color us impressed; the panels are thick, gorgeous and surprisingly easy to install. I’m sharing the full tutorial with West Elm on Front + Main today!
In addition, West Elm has asked us to co-host their opening party for their newest store location in Skokie, IL! What does this mean? (We gave ourselves a good pinch after triple checking to make sure they did, indeed, intend to ask us.) It means this: Let’s hang out!
We’ll be celebrating the store opening with drinks and eats provided by Boutique Bites, and any purchases you make will receive 10% off. Plus, we just really want to meet you! RSVP RIGHT HERE or by clicking the photo above, and we’ll be crossing all our fingers in the hopes of seeing you this coming Wednesday, August 19th from 6-8PM.
So, Chicago friends, who’s in?
This is another one of those times when we wish we lived closer to you. Have fun!
I was so hoping this would be during the first week of September because I’ll be in Chicago for a conference… but alas, no. I will continue to admire the people behind the blog from afar! ;)
I love love love your decanter “vodka” and “gin” labels. Did you make those?
Thank you! And yes, I did: https://pinholepress.com/community/30-minute-remake-diy-leather-decanter-tags/
Hey if those are vintage decanters you don’t actually want to store liquor in them for the long term (i.e. longer than the week within which you will drink it). It can leave traces of lead.
Thanks, Jackie! We only store liquor in glass decanters for that very reason. I’m sort of a nut about making sure. :)
Aw, wish I lived closer! This is gonna be a fun one. Have a blast!
