It was bound to happen. I was walking around all cocky like I was president of the world or something. So darn ahead of the game....somebody crown me Queen of the ORC. I will give seminars on how to work this gig. There will be a reality show......
Yeah....then BAM. The fall was long and hard. We had to go to Chicago to take my father in law to the doctors.
Crikey......will I even finish now?
I say that because I do have a few paying clients that might need some attention ya know?
Anyway before I left we did make a little progress.
Welcome to week 5 of the ORC!
The most fun you will ever have:) To refresh you can read week one here
If you follow me on Instagram then you saw we played around with the art gallery wall.
There was only one problem.....the picture on the bottom left was just not working. Too small and we only had 2 for the other side.
Since this is for family I can improvise:) I told the ex bunny to paint something up before I got there.
Then I made a TV and laid it out on the floor. While I was busy studying it my sister grabbed one and started banging nails into the wall. Are you kidding me? My whole head began to itch. I am a "measurer" and she is an "eyeballer".
It might not look much different but when you see the whole wall you will get it!
Another last minute decision was adding another fabric. Yes....I had an epiphany and decided I needed a touch of modern in the mix. Enter KW Channels via Spark Modern They were awesome handling my panicky need to get them ASAP!
Other decisions.....We ordered 2 of these to go behind the sofa.
This was another little cutie that came with my Minted order
It found it's way onto the shelves in the kitchen.
It's a work in progress for sure:)
These got hung in the kitchen but then.....I was rummaging through my closet and found this...
After hanging..... the pictures were relocated.
The relaxed roman shades got hung over the small square windows above the newly installed cabinets.
Since there was not 12 yards of greek key trim available and it we were starting to get close to the budget I decided to head over to Hobby Lobby and see if I could find a less expensive version.
I stumbled across these....
I like this one but felt maybe we were at our limit with blue.
So I am thinking the first one or this will win out at the great price of under $2.00 @yd.
I am not kidding when I say I have so much left to accomplish. Styling everything will take ton's of time along with taking the reveal pictures and editing.
I am sure everyone else has already finished and they are sitting back drinking and smirking at me.
But just to be sure why don't you read up on their progress!
Trademarked by Calling it Home
Hopefully I can come up for air before next Wednesday!!!
