Many of you know we are moving Cult Nails into a new (to us) office in just a few short days. Now imagine you are moving into a new home and you have NOTHING to furnish it with. NOTHING! GAH! It is such an awesome yet crazy feeling. I get so happy that I get to pick everything and then I freak out with these random thoughts: "OMG! We have to buy a fridge!" "Do you think we need an area rug?" "How far in advance do I call the cable company for internet?" "Should we go pick the paint for the walls?" "What kind of desk should we get?" "Do you think they will leave the blinds for us?" "We need cleaning products for the office!" "Dang it, that means we need a broom and vacuum too!" You see where I'm going with this? I wish I had an unending wallet so I could just hire someone and give them my vision and then leave for a week on vacation and come back and see this beautiful office! LOL!
I think Ikea is going to be our saving grace and help us stay in budget for some furniture. Lowe's will also become a best friend since we want to build a bar/counter that can function as a nail bar if we have an event there, to being a work station to pack orders, to a place to sit and have lunch. The space is small so it needs to be multifunctional for us. I am wanting an old hollywood, nail bar, boutique feel to the space. Can I mix any more things together? In my mind I can see it. Budget wise, that is a whole 'bother ballgame!
|My dream desk! It's the Hollywood Swank by Jane Seymour Collection. Financially, this will stay a dream though. One day...|
|Gorgeous seating by the Hollywood Swank by Jane Seymour Collection. It swivels! I was sitting on this one last night day dreaming at the store. LOL|
|I really think this is going to be the seating. This settee comes in a dove gray velvet with rhinestone buttons. Not appropriate for my house, but perfect for the office! This is also from the Hollywood Swank by Jane Seymour collection.|
|In the photos above you can see the damask wallpaper in the background. I'm thinking one wall accented in this print.|
|I would love a bar similar to this in there. This would double as my desk and work area. It can serve double duty for me which is cost and space effective.|
And of course because my life just wouldn't be my life with out a fully loaded schedule, I have two of my favorite cousins coming into town in just over a week (just days after we get the office keys) and they are staying with us. So we will have a full house for a weekend. I can't wait! We are also planning a mini reunion of sorts, I have a close cousin who lives just over an hour away from me who is also coming down. Then I have 2 cousins that moved to FL that I haven't seen since I was 13 or 14 that are coming down as well so we can all hang out. I can't tell you how excited I am to see them and get to hang with my all my cousins. I think the last time we were all together was when my family briefly lived in PR. So you know we are going to have a lot of fun! Maybe I can put them to work helping get the office ready? NAH! It's just going to be a fun weekend - NO WORK! (Well maybe a little work, I can't help but to always be thinking about the Cult!)
I have all today's orders packed already. I need to get them to the Post Office, get my house cleaned and get ready to go run some more errands. Exciting right? More updates soon!
