Welcome to the One Room Challenge Linking Party! If you are new here, the ORC is created by Linda of Calling it Home where a group of 20 bloggers design a room in 6 weeks. Last year, Linda was kind enough to host an ORC Linking Party where 70 something bloggers joined in the fun (including me!) She is hosting another one this year and on this round, I am redoing my girls' room. We are at week four.
If you missed the previous weeks, you can check them out here.
I only managed to do a couple of things last week.
I was able to reupholster one of the waterfall stools...
We also got the faux sheepskin rug. It is so fluffy and pretty and more importantly, the girls love it. I think it makes the room. I'm considering ordering a smaller one for the study room.
I'm not sure if I like the Henredon nightstand in this room. The scale is a little off and I'm not liking the burl against the aqua wall.
(What do you think?)
My older daughter, Alex, likes this ikea expedit better (from the basement playroom)...
I don't hate it but I like to incorporate a piece of wooden furniture in this room. Unless I find the perfect piece in two weeks, this may have to do for now. (or I'll try the burl again once the room is done and see how it looks. DADD much?!)
I did a little sprucing up by changing the knobs...
and a little styling...
The venetian mirror is up too...
(yes, this room is on a slight angle ;) , no time to edit!)
As for the study room, I was only able to paint the mirror going above the sectional...
(this mirror came with the dresser)
I still have to...
1. Update the headboards
DIY a pelmet box
Recover the waterfall stools (one more to go)
DIY the bedskirts and pillows
Purchase the mirror and rug
6. Paint the dresser
7. Figure out the chandelier
And for the study room..
1. Repaint the Etageres in coral pink
2. Replace the area rug and chair
Paint and hang a mirror above the sectional
4. Unsure if I want to replace the wallpaper or just cover that entire wall with art.
Gah! I may have bitten off more than I can chew.
Let's check out what the others are doing!
