A few weeks ago, I scored 3 (yes, 3!) amazing vintage rugs on CL.

This was the one listed, an 8x11 beauty...

In love with all the colors.  This is going in my girls' bedroom.  (Possibly for the next one room challenge makeover?)

I couldn't believe my luck when the owner brought out 2 other rugs (not listed), 2 beautiful runners.

(keeping this one too for the upstairs hallway)

and this...
(I wish I have the room for this one but it's a tad too wide for our hallway)

So I'm selling this on Etsy or One Kings Lane(more on this later!)
(or email me if interested)

Happy Monday!

We had our Pre-Thanksgiving dinner last Sunday. (A yearly tradition that Mark and I started a few years ago).

I am thankful to all of you and all your sweet comments on the ORC Challenge!
Thanks for continually reading my blog despite my radio silence.
(I promise I'll try to be a better blogger)

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

Thank you for joining me for the final reveal of the One Room Challenge Linking Party!

If you are new here, 
you can catch up with my guest bedroom transformation here.

I started out with this mood board...

and ended with this...

I am truly in love with this room.
Most of the items are vintage and stuff I already owned.
(The duvet cover is from overstock and the elephant pillows are from my sister)

The last 6 weeks have been really fun and I want to thank Linda, the brainchild of One Room Challenge, for hosting and giving us the opportunity to show off our space.
I hope to do it again.

Thanks again for following along and for all the sweet comments!!

I am in LOVE!
(especially against my white panton and navy cantilever chairs)

Happy Monday!

Welcome to week 5 of the One Room Challenge Linking Party!  The ORC is created by Linda of Calling it Home where a group of 20 bloggers design a room in 6 weeks.  This year, Linda was kind enough to host an ORC Linking Party where 70 something bloggers joined in the fun (including me!)
Here are the previous weeks if you missed them.

This previous week was about another DIY - Salvaging the faux bamboo cane chair I got from my neighbor's garbage...

First, I unscrewed the the top frame from the bottom frame and got rid of the damaged caning simply by cutting...

Next, I used a 1" square dowel from home depot to make angled brackets like so...

I traced my wood from under the frame to get accurate measurements for the angles...

Cut then screw.
(I pre-drilled some holes and screwed them to the frame)...

I ended up with two angled pieces in front and one long horizontal piece for the back(since my chair is curved)...

For the seat, I used a ply board from home depot and traced to size...

Then cut with my jigsaw...

I used 3 inch foam and batting for the cushion and added hot pink piping..

then screwed the seat to the frame...

One rescued chair! Yes!

I also got these frames from Michael's...

for some of my favorite photos from recent travels...
(I love how the frame is hardly noticeable).  I think I'm going to add two more and hang them around the tv.

The electrician is coming tomorrow to install the sputnik chandelier.
The duvet cover is going to be delivered today.
All I have to do is hang the tv, mirrors and art then accessorize!
Eeek!  I can't wait to show you.

Come back next week for the big reveal!
