ONE ROOM CHALLENGE WEEK 3




I have been dreading this day.....because I have to put it on paper.     You know what I mean.  It is like when you say you are going on a diet and you tell the world.  Then you are totally accountable.  

Period.

So here goes nothing.....

If you are new....here is a brief description of the ORC.  20 talented designers/bloggers participating to makeover a room in 6 weeks.


Since it was down to the wire....I made the decision to finally finish my guest bedroom.  Let the anxiety begin.

 Now I have to reveal the plan since I already used my "stall" last week.

**I am saying right now that I have the right to make small changes along the way**

Sue me.

The chest is being painted black and I am searching for some cool brass knobs.  I would love this chair.....find me one please :)



  This is the light fixture I had to buy for the Show House.  99% sure that it is going to find it's way to the ceiling.

This table [from my LR] as the bedside table.  Need some wood to warm up the space.


I will be thrifting for a brass lamp.....

White vintage french linen shams [from my stash]
Fabric....already had made into pillows for my LR now moving into the bedroom.
Botanicals that were moved out of the LR [during the great furniture swap last weekend] will find a home also.

Seagrass on the floor.
And...I can't lie.  I did purchase this coverlet from PB last weekend reduced to a wicked low price.

Now.....

I have plantation shutters in this room but I am tossing them in favor of bamboo shades and some cream linen curtains with trim.  The shutters are 20 years old so bye bye suckers.

If I win the lottery between now and the end of this challenge....I will do this to my plaster ceilings.

Could you die??

Pray for me....

It does feel good to have a plan.  The trick is to stay off Pinterest and not let any thing distract me from my goal.

Please stop by all of these talented designers below and see what everyone is up to.....on week 3.



Make it a positive day :)

**A couple of people wanted to know where I got that mirror.....it is from Wisteria and the wallpaper is Schumacher from the Modern Nature book**

Love the warm and earthy elements like rope, gorgeous textures of velvet, linen, trim...it's going to look fabulous. You can pull miracles out of your hat so quickly--youre the master. The light is fabulous. No stress, now, seems like everything's in place! Best of luck!

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

You've got all the pieces ready sister, now its just time for the fun stuff. I'll keep an eye out for that chair :)

Acquired Objects said...

I'm wondering why you were sweating this chanllenge since I think you did a fabulous job of pulling everything together. I love browns and the textures you're pulling into your room and can't wait to see it finished.

Enjoy your day!

Believe it or not, I have that exact brass lamp. Guess where I found it? The dump! Yep, it was just sitting there getting ready to be thrown in the trash and I made my (mortified) husband get out of the car and grab it. :)

Love this direction. That ceiling would be so cool. it reminds me of when I went into Pottery barn, and tracked down the installer for the cement, barn wood floors that they have...only to find out that it was a gazillion dollars.

Karen said...

Wednesday mornings rock with the ORC...I'm an official ORC groupie.

Now I'm getting excited Sherry...love your plan. And that ceiling fixture you bought is one of my all-time faves...beauty!

LiveLaughDecorate said...

Well, I just may collapse (not die hon) if you produce that ceiling. But I already collapsed once you mentioned getting that coverlet for a steal. So freaking fab. Glad you're so mindful of Linda's whip-cracking abilities and getting this ish done. Can't wait for reveal day.

Kerry Steele- Design du Monde said...

Staying on a Pinterest free diet can really help out the ol' budget. I love the bed linens! If I knew your address I would come and steal that light fixture ;)

vreelandroad said...

OMG That Lamp is so ...everything I want in a lamp. I'm so mad that Emily found one at the dump?! What the? Good luck, I hope you find one, and the chair too. Now that you've put it out there, I'm sure the lotto thing will work out too:) Loving your plans for the room!

Oh my ... I gave a brass lamp just like that away to the Goodwill in Cumming two months ago ... maybe it's the one Emily found!! I didn't have a place for it and had to just cut the cord on so many things!! I LOVE the ceiling treatment. Am pinning now to remember for One Day!! Good Luck! xo
