Two and a half years ago we had our basement finished for our growing kiddos. You may recall hearing about it because no less than 3 times I have talked about how it’s going to be my next big project. Somehow I always get sidetracked, and so it remains……
Enter Linda of Calling It Home, and her One Room Challenge. The ORC is an event in which twenty design bloggers transfrom a room and show their progress over the course of 6 weeks. In addition, Linda has invited the rest of the universe to link up rooms that are in dire need of a makeover in the ORC Linking Party.
Linda has been a great motivator for me this year. In January she started a Pinterest board for project that you’ve been procrastinating on, and I pinned 8 or 9 pieces of furniture that I wanted to get done. Thanks to that motivation I’ve managed to cross a bunch of them off the endless to-do list. Now I really need to work on this room, where my kids and their friends hang out all the time.
This space DOES NOT represent my crazy, loud, fun, kooky family AT ALL.
There is currently one lonely little 2-seater couch down there, plus the TV console and the TV. THAT’S IT! More furniture is headed that way, but not until we buy new furniture for our living room, so more furnishings are not part of the ORC plan.
What IS the plan??
Brown leather with grey. There’s something about this combination I find so warm and cozy.
Charcoal and beige….yum.
So, these things will be happening over the next six weeks……
So a massive gallery wall is definitely part of this plan!
I am so glad to have something to commit to, since I’ve been thinking on this room for a long, long time and it’s time to do something about it! Next week I’ll show you my progress.
