ORC LINKING PARTICIPANT, ROUND 2, WEEK 3

Welcome to week 3 of the one room challenge.  We are halfway through and I have so much to do!
(Check out week one and two if you missed them.)

I narrowed down my fabric choices...
I used the flame stitch fabric last week to recover the pelmet box (and will also be using it to reupholster the waterfall stools).
The "Adele Springtime" floral fabric is from Calico Corners and will be used as pillow covers.

I got the other two from Jo-Ann's for the bedskirts...


I basically just followed the same steps I used for the guest room from the last ORC...

(I used the pink fabric for the corners for some contrast)


I was also able to purchase the rug.  My 9 yo really wanted a fluffy rug so I got this white faux sheepskin rug by Home Decorators.

Here's a tip - I purchased mine through Home Depot because they offer free shipping (and on sale now too!)




That's all I have for you this week.

I still have to...

1.  Update the headboards
2. DIY a pelmet box
3.  Recover the waterfall stools with the flame stitch fabric
4. DIY the bedskirts and pillows
5. Purchase the mirror and rug
6. Paint the dresser
7.  Figure out the chandelier 
8.  Accessorize

And for the study room..
1.  Repaint the Etageres in coral pink
2. Replace the area rug and chair
3.  Hang a mirror above the sectional
4.  Unsure if I want to replace the wallpaper or just cover that entire wall with art.
5.  Accessorize


Eeek!

Now let's check out what the others are doing.
Thanks for following along!

ORC LINKING PARTICIPANT, ROUND 2, WEEK 2

Welcome to week 2 of the One Room Challenge Linking Party.  If you missed week one, check it out here.


I managed to do the pelmet box last week.  I was going to DIY it from scratch but I scored this at my local ReStore a few weeks ago...
(Nice shape and perfect size for my window.  For $5, it was a no brainer)


I basically just recovered it with this flame stitch fabric I got from an estate sale (a whole roll of it!)...




I took note of how it was originally done and just went to town with my staple gun...



 I also added contrasting piping...


Voila!
 (Yes, that's a christmas wreath.  We took them down last weekend. Finally.)


Oh, and the venetian mirror arrived yesterday...

I got it from Amazon.  If you are on the hunt, I highly recommend.   It is priced really well too.


As if my list it not long enough, I also decided to update Sabrina's room  which is going to be the Study room.

Before... 
A tiny room which is actually connected to the Girls' room separated by walk in closet.

This is what it looks now...
(I moved the bamboo etageres from Alex's room.)

I'm not going to go crazy with this room, just a few updates...

1.  Repaint the Etageres in coral pink
2. Replace the area rug and chair
3.  Hang a mirror above the sectional
4.  Unsure if I want to replace the wallpaper or just cover that entire wall with art.
5.  Accessorize


And so far...

1.  Update the headboards
2. DIY a pelmet box
3.  Recover the waterfall stools with the flame stitch fabric
4. DIY the bedskirts and pillows
5. Purchase the mirror and rug
6. Paint the dresser
7.  Figure out the chandelier
8.  Accessorize

Next week is Spring Break week for us so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get something done.
(Follow me on instagram for updates - @mybestfriendcraig)
Speaking of updates, I got the parsons chairs from the upholsterer the other day.  Can't wait to show you!


Don't forget to check out what the other participants are up to and of course the original 20!

Happy Thursday!

ORC LINKING PARTY, ROUND 2, WEEK 1

So it's time for Linda's One Room Challenge.  Yay!  This time,  I'm going to tackle the girls' room. 



Sabrina, my 3 yr. old is finally done sleeping in her crib so I am combining the 2 girls in one room.
Since my 9 yo has the bigger room, we are going to transform her room into a shared bedroom and make Sabrina's room a computer/study room.


Here are some before photos...







and my plan...


girls' room


girls' room

Right after the last ORC, I knew I was going to re-do this room so I've been slowly collecting items for this room.

I already have...

-faux bamboo headboards and beds
-Henredon burl nightstand (which I may or may not use)
-waterfall stools
-faux bamboo lamp (free from my husband's aunt)
- a Kent Coffey chinoiserie dresser
-and I'm going to keep the existing wall paint color (tidewater by Sherwin Williams)


I have to...

1. update the headboards
2.  DIY a pelmet box for the window
3. Recover the waterfall stools
4.  DIY the bedskirts and pillows
5.  Purchase mirror and rug
6.  Paint the dresser
7.  Figure out the chandelier
8. Accesorize


Come join me for the next six weeks to see the transformation while I link up with the ORC party at Calling it home and see what the other participants are up to!



Thanks Linda for hosting yet another awesome party!
