ONE ROOM CHALLENGE WEEK 3




I know y'all are saying "wow....only 3 weeks to go".

While I am saying it more like "AYFKM?  3 WEEKS TO GO????"

But here we are almost halfway through the ORC.

  

I think it's cool that there are so many different styles among this talented group.   I get pretty darn excited to check on all of the progress......I mean we have people doing big  renovating out there....that is some kind of pressure!

We left off with the decision of wrapping the room in 1 by 8 boards.  Many of you wanted to know how to do it.

Well....I don't know how..... but I know what I told them:)

I did not care if it was perfect.....I was going for a more casual look.


They took the trim off from around the windows and just used 1 by 4's.

Same with the floor trim....

You can see there are gaps which I think is part of the charm.....I did NOT want caulk in-between the boards


Here are a few images painted [BM White Dove] in an eggshell finish.

The doors were just painted here.




Here you can see how I wrapped it around the front into the LR.

I have since painted that old register.....


And....here we have the "big picture"....

So....am I happy with it?  If I could..... I would cover every wall in my house!  For realz.

I still have not sold my table yet.  One of the reasons I decided to replace it is because of the size and now I feel guilty cause I am about to have 2 DR tables.  Crikey.

Search Limestone DR tables on CL Atlanta if you are interested.  You can see a picture of it here

A little peek of what is coming.  


That is a whole other story involving 3 other designers/bloggers. 

Linda....do I get a prize for finally getting this post out before 8:00 AM:)

Here's a list of talent to keep you entertained today!




Get to it.

In other news I work in the yard planting for the first time in 10 years and 2 days later it gets down to 34 degrees.  Really?  I will be one mad old lady if it all dies.

Julia | Pawleys Island Posh said...

I am OBSESSED with your room. We took off our little doors like that in our family room leading to the back hall and the front hall and now I want Matthew to paint them gray and put them back up. Today.

That is all.

Kelly said...

I love the look of planked walls. It adds instant charm to the room. Love the bright white and grey paint you've used too.

Christine Dovey said...

This is seriously just SOOOO beautiful!!! The walls in combo with the grey doors make my knees week. I can not wait to see this all put together and whatever that sneak peek is...heaven!

Naomi@Design Manifest said...

My word, it's all so fabulous. Then you add a lucite dining table. Stop. It. Now.

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

So glad you left it without caulking, the look is perfection. And bringing the planks into the living room entryway makes you dining room look so much bigger. Genius. And don't even get me started on your doors! Love!

erin williamson said...

Those walls are incredible and I want them sooooo badly! I am also pretty sure I want that lucite table and I can't wait to hear the backstory :)

That table?! No fair. Get it in my house NOW. In love with your boards and those gray doors. I don't have one speck of gray in my house and now I want every door gray.

Emilie ShellAndChinoiserie said...

LOVE the boards--genius! And your casual approach to them--as far as I can tell, that must be the only sane way to go about it. And I, too, am saying AYFKM even though I'm not doing any major renos. Looking gooooood over there! ;-/

Loi Thai, Tone on Tone said...

AMAZING!!!! I'm gonna be in Maine all of next week seeing where I can copy your walls. You are the best of the best!

This looks much more like you than the other wall treatment. Love it! And the paint colors are gorgeous together!!
