ONE ROOM CHALLENGE WEEK 5





We are on the roller coaster now at the top of the hill.....about to free fall to the bottom.....whether  ready or not.

Yep.... it's do or die time for the ORC!


There are 20 of us scrambling to finish our projects with one week to go!  Linda [our motivator and biggest supporter] is sitting back wiping her brow....happy she did not make the crazy mistake of joining in.  She just moved into a new home in Florida so I admire her for being so sensible:)

I left you last week with white floors.....that had to cure for 7 days.  We made it 4 days and then I had to have the furniture delivered.  [We were still careful not wearing shoes for the full 7 days]

Deadlines people.

After talking to the Sherwin Williams people I decided not to put a coat of poly on top.  

Living dangerously.

This went down first.....

The beautiful Karastan carpet [one of our great sponsors].

  
The black and tan pinstripe sofa from Lee Industries.  Gah.....I want this so badly.  I found the small wooden table from HG's.  The pharmacy lamp from another sponsor Bellacor!

I put the sofa table I ordered from Overstock behind the sofa and then I started to hang the gallery wall with all of my art selections from Minted....another sponsor!  Yes.....my sister scored right?


I wanted you to see the seams.....my heart is full of love for this detail.


I began accessorizing like it was an olympic sport.



I like playing where's Waldo with that TV:)

Yesterday I went shopping for some accessories. I think I will just have to put my sister on a payment plan....

Rejuvenation is having their Friend's and Family discount this week so I picked up these.


This great Woolwich Blanket.

And a canvas tote for the fireplace hearth.

Then I went all cray and decided since the electrician is coming today to install the new ceiling fan from Bellacor [here is some great info about how to choose a ceiling fan] and light fixture from Crystorama [another great sponsor] that maybe we could install a few cute pendants over the kitchen peninsular.

I picked up 3 different pairs.  I am nothing if not decisive.


I was at Ikea and they now make this one in a 9" version.

Then I saw this one....

AND......after a little trip to West Elm I picked up 2 of these....



They were on sale also for 20% off.

Lord knows when the electrician is coming you don't want think you forgot something:)

You will have to wait until next Wednesday to see which ones got selected!

This little number from my basement got hung!



Because I am so lame....the curtains won't be ready and hung until Tuesday.  Yes....you read that right.


The ottoman got a little slipcover.

I used the same seam like the sofa.....

This should arrive for under the small dining area  from Urban Home! Another great sponsor.

And....those Ikea pillows are pretty awesome!



So I leave you.....a little anxious that I still have a lot to do....



See you next week for the final reveal:)

You make it look effortless. I love the textures and how you put it together.

Unknown said...

I just love your color palette, Sherry, and your use of texture. So soothing, non-tiring and the texture keeps it interesting. You continue to inspire! Great job in pulling this all together in a tight time frame. Your sister must be beside herself with joy. You're on the homestretch! Looking forward to the final reveal.
