Where the heck did a week go?  It seems like when you are doing the ORC time moves at warp speed right?

If you just returned from a month long vacation then let me catch you up.  I am participating in a 6 week makeover called the One Room Challenge.  Call me crazy.   No I mean it... call me cray cray.

It is almost time to put your pencils down....13 days and counting.  Insert "wicked laugh" right here.

I know you don't care about all of my complaining so I'm just gonna dive in.

We got the bed....and you won't believe where we found it!

Big Lots!  For 199.00

The website has the color as brown but its actually a gray brown and quite nice!

The Schumacher wallpaper arrived and so did the Pottery Barn side tables.....

For $199.00 these are a steal!

Then I kind of went off track and decided that we had to have these lamps....which I saw at PB when we were buying the end tables.  Thank goodness because they are not on the website anymore!

The walls are actually finished and the bookcase is painted SW Urbane Bronze.

I started accessorizing....but my sister had mirrored the back of these things years ago and that is making it a little challenging!

I sent her down to Ikea and she scored some nice gold hardware for the drawers.....

And as if I had never shown you guys a plan I changed up the relaxed roman shades to white linen with this trim.  

I have been a little possessed....agonizing over the fabrics like I'm decorating for the queen.....instead of a "bunny"

Oh well it's done....I pulled the trigger on everything yesterday.  No going back.

The wing chair in the large buffalo check is finished so we will have that next week!
It is NOT this chair which somebody asked me about.  I just used it for inspiration.

So where are we now....

Yeah....plan # 238.

Stay tuned for next week when we introduce another plan.....why?  Cause I can.  Hee Haw

Crikey......again.....13 days.

Check out the 20 invited designers and see their progress this week here




Who remembers what my favorite thing to do is huh?  

If you have been reading DI for any length of time then you know about my love for Showhouses!
