Then biotch, better make it count by taking your call in one of these babies:
These booths are just begging to be occupied!
YES! Gorg, right? These booths are just BEYOND sassy, with their new paint jobs…and look at the floors too:
EAT OFF ME!
These are painted in the company’s logo colors using Benjamin Moore’s Impervex latex enamel paint. It’s water based, so the dry time is substantially less than oil based enamels, but it still took me about 4 days to WERK these two ladies out! Red being the absolute biotch of a color that she is to paint with, and b/c every surface in both of these booths was some kind of weird laminate-y horrid glossy surface, I had to use a primer. I used Benjamin Moore’s Stix Waterborne Bonding Primer, which sounds like some sort of torture method. It too is water-based, so it was really easy to use and dried really quickly. Here’s what that step looked like:
...more more primed...on the ceiling too!
I hit both booths with two coats of primer. Then painted both out with at least two coats of paint each. The red lady was all kinds of finicky, as pointed out earlier, so of course she ended up getting like 4 coats. Honestly, I could of done even more, but she wasn’t the only thing on the agenda for this office makeover, the selfish skank! The linoleum floors got some love by being scrubbed and then reconditioned with a generous coating of boiled linseed oil, which is just God’s gift…that stuff works on ALL KINDS OF SURFACES…AMAZE!
I know I look good but keep painting...I'll look better!
Ready and at your service!

This is happening:
This baby was scored off Craigslist! She’s one of two vintage phone booths– thanks New Jersey!!!– that are being primarily repurposed as privacy booths in a new open loft office design project i’m doing! I mean, it’s like CAKE, right?
You should be boothin'!
I’m painting the interiors, gasp phone-booth-o-philes and eventually we’re going to retrofit the light and even wire them with the company’s phones! For now, employee peeps will just use their cellphones to make those delicate calls…like, to their drug dealers! AMAZE! Stay tuned for more process shots of wonder! And happy FRIDAY!!!

Click and I'm yours...you just can't try me out first!
We’re well into the day and age where everything you could ever want is available for purchase online…it’s mad convenient, but with regards to buying new furniture, esp. larger, more pricey pieces, like sofas…are y’all as eager to shell out before you test out? Do y’all just take the plunge, open the purse and then pray it shows up looking and feeling as amazing as it does online, knowing you can just return it, if not? Hmmmm, send me wise words…I’m struggling with this!!!
I could be uncomfortably gorgeous!!!

Mad for this plaid chair!
And I know just the place to snatch it up: Lambert & Co at the Chateau Frontenac in Canada! YES! (Y’all, L&Co is inside the hotel lobby, which hotel is linked to above, but — gasp– store seems to have no online presence! WTF, Lambert? Well, fret not friends, just do like we used to do back in the day– call or email them to buy yo-selves some plaid-ness: (418) 694-2151 and firstname.lastname@example.org)
Like these lovelies:
Put this shiot on your sofa and SNUGGLE IT!
Put a plaid lampshade on it!
Slain by another lampshade!
Speaking of lampshades, these biotches at Lambert & Co are werking all kinds of lampshade divinity…
Oh she done knitted herself a lampshade, y'all!
And never one to be distracted by a lampshade, this one nabbed a fur head-dress:
There was also some sort of sheep theme running rampant throughout Lambert & Co., b/c I think I remember the shop owner telling me something about their history involving Shetland Wool and sheep, fur, lampshades, plaid?
Go on y’all and give ‘em a shout to get your hands on some of this chic!!!
