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!
