Hey friends, thank you so much for stopping by to check in on Week 3 of the
One Room Challenge. Things are coming together and it's getting exciting, but we
still have a few big DIYs on the list and I'm famous for under estimating how long
they'll take to complete. That being said, we have a ways to go. You can catch up with
previous weeks here:
We had fun deliveries this week - FABRIC!
I chose this mix of patterns and burst of color to incorporate my client's request for
'pops of color with a neutral background and furnishings.'
Remember our inspiration chairs? I found some!
World Market came through for us, unfortunately the ivory linen we wanted had been
discontinued. Without the help of two outstanding employees, who jumped through hoops,
they'd still be in some backroom in CA. World Market doesn't ship between stores, but the
Denver manager and CA manager scoured the country for two chairs, packed them up,
arranged for a Fed Ex pickup, and sent them our way.
Since they'd been discontinued the price was a steal, less than $200 each including shipping!
We were planning to keep their dresser, I knew the warm wood would look great against
our crisp white walls, BUT this thing was a beast, at 40" H x 65" W x 25" D it
completely overpowered that side of the room and the style wasn't working for us.
** Do you see the little black spot underneath the right side of the dresser?**
It's their sweet pup Zoey's favorite spot.
My goal was to find something on Craigslist that was reasonable, stylish and didn't
sacrifice storage. They could then sell theirs for a similar price and it would be a wash.
My Craigslist find for the week! :)
$300 for the vintage dresser and nightstand (which we plan to paint and use in their basement).
The length is the same, but the lower height and narrower depth are a much better scale and
we love the brass hardware.
And storage galore. I feel SO bad for Zoey though!
For those of you who asked about my Craigslist tips last week, I've shared a few of them
A happy delivery from our awesome sponsor Minted! Their selection of artwork is fabulous
and I can't wait to share the statement pieces we've chosen. Here's a sneak peek at a small
portion of our art I worked on framing.
This week we have DIYs and window treatments on our to-do list.
I'm off to see what these fabulous friends have been up to:
Don't forget the One Room Challenge Linking Participants share
their progress tomorrow over at Linda's @ Calling It Home.
If you haven't checked them out you are in for a huge treat - serious talent!
