One Room Challenge - Week 2 - Paint and Craigslist


Thank you all so much for your sweet comments last week, and
 stopping by to check in on our progress for Week 2 of the One Room Challenge!
You can catch up with Week 1 - The Plan here.

It was a good week friends, Craigslist came through for us. :) 
If you remember my client's inspiration photos included a zebra hide, I've never
 seen one on our Craigslist before, but we scored! Crazy, I know, the seller had owned it for
 25 years and was ready to sell at $350!  


Another of her inspiration pics included a bamboo mirror, BAM this gem shows up for
 $50!  When we give it a gold paint makeover it will look exactly like her inspiration.   


I popped into one of my favorite retro consignment stores, Mod Mood, to scour 
around and see if they had anything to add to the mix for our collected style.    


Lovely Florentine Nesting Tables hidden in that jungle of treasures,
 I can just imagine them in a pretty setting!  

  
They made the cut, and we brought them home! 

The brown four poster bed got a fresh update of Rustoleum Gloss Protective Enamel
and we chose Benjamin Moore Simply White on the walls and ceiling for a neutral
 backdrop that will let our artwork take center stage.


Before the fresh coat of paint it was the perfect opportunity to lower the tv
 and feed the cords down through the wall never to be seen again! 
It might not look like a big deal, but it's so much better!  


That's our progress for the week friends!
We've got some special deliveries happening this week, I'll be sharing on Instagram

Loving all the pieces you have scored, especially the bamboo mirror. Somehow pieces like this always take me back to West Palm Beach. Looking forward to the next installment!

Oh my that consignment store. Why don't we have something like that here, seriously! And I totally adore the mirror.

I'm cracking up! I too scored a zebra hide this year and looks like we are pairing it with similar items. I found a vintage Ficks Reed sofa and have the hide in front of that but I'm having a heck of a time picking out a coffee table! Pics on my blog if you have any suggestions.

Wow the bed looks incredible with the new paint! So jealous of your mirror score, it's exactly what I want for our great room but I had to purchase one for 4x more, you luck duck!

Susanne said...

Absolutely love what you've done so far. The wall & bed colors are so nice. Any chance you can give a little play by play how you did the bed? I've got something similar in dark and I'm so tired of it, would love to paint it but too scared I’ll ruin it.

Jessie said...

Fabulous finds! The zebra hide and mirror are my favorites! I can't wait to see more!

CL in NJ was much better than in FL....I can't believe I just said that. Love all of your scores, but that rug is by far the winner.

Holly Boyle said...

what color paint did you use on the four poster bed? Perfect for my outdated guest bed thanks

pam {simple details} said...

Hi Holly - It's Rustoleum Protective Enamel Gloss in Almond - it's oil based but the great high gloss durable finish is worth the extra trouble. I also used it on our bathroom vanity here:

Good luck on your bed!
