One Room Challenge - Week 3 - Sofas, Sconces and a Stool


Hi friends, we're at the half way point in our One Room Challenge and
although it feels like we're on track and knocking things out, our shopping list is still long!
  If you're new here, I'm working on my client's Great Room in their
new home. We started with a blank slate, you can catch up with previous weeks:  

Week 1 - The Plan

Fireplace, hearth and sconces are complete.
I can't wait to get our ornate gold mirror up there and style it up.


If you're a regular you know I love thrifting and the thrill of the hunt.
I was on a mission to find some artwork, but a foot stool or ottoman was also on my
 list and look what I spied! :) 


Not at all what I was expecting, but perfectly unique!
It's tiny, but packs a punch after I reupholstered in classic Ralph Lauren zebra print.

(I was trying it out in my living room before delivering it to my client's home, dangerous!)

It will coordinate with this special chair that's been in the family for years.
The next time you see it it will be a timeless statement piece with new cushions and a
 makeover in the same zebra print.  


Another super easy DIY this week.
My client had a round marble top table, the size is perfect at the corner of the two
sofas and we loved the round shape, the marble not so much! We decided to paint the
 table and turn the top over, painting the bottom side, in case anyone ever did like the marble.
I used my favorite products to give us a glossy lacquer like finish.
 A quality Purdy brush and roller, and oil based Rustoleum Protective Enamel.
(Thank you Purdy for the nice surprise delivery!)



I love traditional style pieces painted in high gloss for a youthful look. 
Two coats down, one to go.  




We made a decision on our pair of gray sofas!!
Super comfy, and a kid and pet friendly color that they won't have to fret over, won out.
Of course, we'll ditch those matchy pillows for something more unique. :)

 


That's it for this week!
 Next week, Craigslist furniture shopping and rug shopping is on the agenda.

 Are you following along with all the other ORC participants' projects, such a crazy
 amount of inspiration from lots of favorite bloggers and former ORC designers!
 You can check it out at Linda's @ Calling It Home.

Pam- in our family one of the ways we describe someone who has the 'touch' with a house is to refer to them as a 'house person'.
You are a House Person.
What I especially love is how you transform special previously loved pieces of furniture.
I hope you will share this today at Thoughts of Home on Thursday.
Just stop by my blog to join in.
Enjoyed visiting,

That stool is awesome!!! Your client is lucky it didn't stay in your living room, where it looked right at home! I'm crazy for those sconces too.

Love the way its going...I've got to try that paint...in all my spare time!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

That table looks awesome, and how smart are you to paint the bottom of the marble! I've been eyeing a marble table on CL but had the same problem-marble was ugly. I thought of painting it too, so I can't wait to see how yours turned out!

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

I love the direction of the table, and that ottoman is so darn cute! It's a perfect combo of chic, current, yet timeless!

Unknown said...

I'm in the Denver area, too, and wondering who you use for reupholstery when you do something more involved? Can't wait to see how this turns out!

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

I can't believe your finds, that stool!! This room is going to be amazing Pam, I can't wait to see more!

Jennifer Lippi said...

That stool is beyond. You have such vision Pam!! Can't wait to follow along and see more.

Kris Jarrett said...

You are knocking things out left and right my friend! Love your little stool (I would have been tempted to keep that sucker!) and those sconces are super cool!

Kristin Thompson said...

A great idea on the table makeover-I'm in love with round coffee tables-it going to look amazing in the room! Kristin @ Postbox Designs

Unknown ~ I like Avis Upholstery & Tien Upholstery, not inexpensive but I'd trust them to do a great job with even the most complicated.

Hi Carola, The sofas weren't from Craigslist. If you're local we found them at American Furniture Warehouse.
