Here we are with only week left of the One Room Challenge!
I’m keeping this update short and sweet because I’m mired in the details of finishing up the last 20 percent of our family room – you know – all those little details that you can sit on for MONTHS, or even years? The perfect piece of art, the right lamps, pillows that have that exact shade of blue you were thinking of???
I’m so happy that I decided at the last minute (okay, a week late) to jump into this challenge because it has given me a deadline to finish up those tedious details.
So far I’ve crossed curtains, a rug, pillows, and reupholstering two chairs off my list.
AND………I ordered “art” but sadly, it’s not going to be delivered until after the big ORC reveal next week. I’m using this photo I took with my phone of a beach on Cape Cod and posted to Instagram last year:
(I already attempted to make something artsy with it a month or so ago but it was a total DIY FAIL, so this is round 2!) I will keep you in the loop about that fun and mammoth project post-ORC!
I also scored a piece of blue & white pottery to add to my collection of 1. On the clearance rack, holla!! Gotta love the red sticker on the one thing you were looking for!!!
It’s time to tackle the bookcase styling (Pam, I’m sending my private jet to pick you up for this leg of the race!!) and I’m also getting out the power tools and building doors for the bottom of the bookcases after a call to my own personal This Old House, aka my favorite father-in-law.
(I love the tv there, but I also despise the tv there. Do you feel my pain???)
A new coffee table is also on my list of to-dos, and I’ve narrowed down some fab contenders which I’ll share with you tomorrow.
SO HERE WE ARE! The last week of The Last 20% Challenge.
