ONE ROOM CHALLENGE WEEK 4




No way!  Week 4.......giddy up.



There is something to be said about deadlines.  I need them.
If I don't have one then I will never make a decision.  No way could I be head of a large company unless I had an assistant that would come in, shut the door and shout "damn girl....get on it".

It could be 5 years from now and I would still be flip flopping around on this stupid guest room.  Thanks you Linda for being our general.

Here is what got done.

My sister helped me attach the headboard to the wall.  It kept falling off the paint cans.
That allowed me to raise it about 10".....which looks so much better with euro shams.


I got the bed made which was a little premature because I will just have to tear it apart when I put the rug down.  I wanted to see how it was looking though.  #inpatientfool


Nothing new here yet except the coverlet.  I feel a little lazy considering that a few of the ORC bloggers are RENOVATING something.  #overachievers 


I got this bad boy painted.  
Now I am trying to decide on the pulls.  I tried a little DIY with rub and buff on the existing but wasn't feeling it so much.  I might try knocking them back a little with shoe polish.

Yet  I am leaning on ordering something like this.

Maybe pulls on the doors and knobs on the drawers.
Thoughts?

Got the curtains, hardware and the trim ordered.  Also hung the bamboo shades.

I might have gotten a few quotes on that fabulous ceiling.....but somebody is going to have to come waaaaayyyyy down if that is to be done.  Holy mackerel. 

By the way y'all.... I recently discovered that I will be out of town week 6 and 7.  I mean gone for 8 days.  You know  what that means..... I will have to finish this sucker before I leave, write the last 2 post and figure out how to schedule them.

It's always something right?

There are 20 other bloggers who are ready to show you what they have accomplished.

Go see please.

Damn, that's a good looking bed. I wish I had a handy sister. How about clear knobs? Email me if you need a step-by-step for the scheduling tutorial. Love that gray coverlet.

Love the beds girl! and I vote for ring pulls for sure. I love them. Great bedding, and very cool headboard. Good luck Shafreaky-you'll do it, and come out smelling like a rose.

The headboard looks awesome! I love that you raised it to work with the shams you had. I need to do that to mine so bad. Maybe after this challenge I can convince my husband I need a new bed. I mean, after all this work I totally deserve one, right?

Kim said...

Agreed, without Linda I would be a forever mess!! Love the bed and the paint color ... YES ... ring pulls ... love them! Good luck before you head out ... hope it is something fun! xo

So fun that you are considering that cool ceiling treatment! Someone needs to give you a good price for your readers' sake!

It's delish. Good luck with the timing thing. That sounds rough. I will no doubt go to the last minute with mine!

Elisa of Fancy Free Me said...

Love the bedding! I am totally guilty of putting things together too early just so i can get a glimpse of beautiful, only to have to take it apart. Love that I'm not alone in this.

The Pink Pagoda said...

You're going to finish early?? Who's the high achiever now?! Knobs with pulls will be gorgeous!

Judy said...

don't be too hard on yourself...from what i see, it's looking good!

i know exactly what you mean by having a deadline...my guest room re-do has been languishing for about 3 months now...got everything done but finishing the headboard...my excuse is it's too cold to take it outside!

looking forward to your finished room...where did you get your coffee sack for the headboard? did i miss that somewhere?

Tiffany said...

Awesome so far! Im using that fabric as well for my bedroom. Love it!

Lauren (The Cottage Mix) said...
