One Room Challenge - Week 4 - Craigslist Scores!!!


Thanks so much for stopping by to check in on Week 4 of the ORC!
It's crunch time, and there is still a boatload of shopping on our list for my client's
Great Room. I'm keeping this short and sweet and going to bed so I can be up with
 the chickens and at it.    

If you'd like to catch up:

Week 3 - Sofas & a Stool

The Craigslist Gods smiled upon us! :) 

 I was on the hunt for some sort of console to place behind the sofa. 
In my Craigslist search I came across this pretty piece on the left, I thought we could
take it up a notch by painting the diamond shape wood detail gold to look like
metal. When my client went to pick it up she texted this photo saying
she LOVED this secretary they were selling, and would be willing to sell her existing one
 to replace with this. Unfortunately, the seller thought it was a VERY valuable antique and
 she left with just the console. :(
It took several days of negotiating but he finally came around and we couldn't
be happier, it's gorgeous!   


Here's a peek at our console with the detail highlighted in gold. 
Rub 'n Buff is your BFF!  


And, we scored this fabulous, comfy, tufted leather chair. It has that timeless
character we were looking for to achieve a collected style. 
We've been searching for the just-right side table or garden stool and need to make a 
decision.     


The secretary will fit perfectly in the space to the left of the fireplace,
 and leather chair to the right. 


 We decided on our rug and have our fingers crossed it will be here in time,
we cut it close! These were our top three, all from World Market,
 do you have a favorite?   




 This week we'll be focusing on drapes, a media piece and artwork.

I need to get to World Market ASAP! Those rugs are beautiful. I especially love that first one.

Dang! That CL console is so good. And I'm loving the bottom rug! Can't wait to see how the room turns out!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Once again, you're the CL whisperer. Can I bring a trailer when I come see you this summer? ;) I love that first rug (shocker, I know).

Mary Ann Pickett said...

Boy, you are GOOD!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

That first rug is to die for! Looking so good.

Jenny said...

You always knock the ORC out of the park, Pam, and it looks like you're well on your way again this time! I had to sit it out this round - too much craziness already, and I think the ORC would send me over the edge. So, I'll just live vicariously through you! :-)

i like the first rug, too. Everybody else does. And those craigslist finds. Nothing like a good find!

StagerLinda said...

I am so excited about this room, Pam. What a fun client that loves fun and funky color combos. You are creating a masterpiece and I can hardly wait to see the entire room come together.

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

I saw this post on my phone first thing this morning and I am circling back around to comment. WOW. You find the best things and put them together so seamlessly! You have an amazing eye Pam, and I love the secretary your client found!

Tiffany said...

Your finds always amaze me. The first rug is my fave.

Vel Criste said...

Choosing a fave among the rugs you have is hard! I love the first one though the most for the colors!

Arielle said...
