Welcome Back ... I have had such fun in the previous Challenges working with Clients to achieve a new look in a part of their home.
This Challenge I took on Myself. And I made a commitment to really keep costs down and Shop in My own Home.
You can click on the weeks below to see the beginnings if you missed something!
I came up with some fun ideas based all around things I currently have. I hope you like them and that they encourage you to Shop Your Home First!
About 15 years ago my Mom and her best friend decided to enter a Doll House into a fun contest supporting a Charity. I am sorry to say I cannot remember the Charity ... but they won 3rd place out of about 50 Doll Houses submitted! Mother gave the House and the Furniture to my girls. And as you can imagine it has been locked up tight in the Attic since they outgrew that phase of their life.
I broke the items free to create a room for my new Hutch!
And because I am loving Clare's Art so much ... I used it to give this Traditional Furniture a more Hip Vibe. I'd like to move in!! She even signed it for me!!
Don't you love the way the Glass Shelves PLAY with the Chevron???
Yes, I have an original!!
When I cleaned out my parent's home last year I couldn't let go of these 60's vibe Sherry Glasses. There were only three left. They have become the new Home for these ...
My Bamboo Tray Stand has a Starring Role Holding Up all my Client Projects!
My champagne Bowl ... Now houses my Samples. And I can dump those samples in a heartbeat when it is time for the Bubbly!!
All those Magazines ... neatly corralled right here in my Orange Magazine Boxes! I actually had several of these and I added two more!
These two represent my Split Personality!!
A little more fun in the Accessory Department.
Okay ... I did BUY one thing ...
Kerry Steele ... Yep. I couldn't resist!
Can you Blame Me??
The Hutch was missing some shelves ... those are in the works. The Beast is almost Tamed!
You might remember my chair make-over. I really want a new one, but that is going to have to come later!!
Next week is the final reveal and I have one MAJOR piece left on my List. The Chandelier. I really wanted two matching ones. I was not finding two of anything that I liked, or could afford! Then ... Alice ... she is a treasure trove of unlikely things ... said, I have a chandelier if you'd like one.
Well, YES!!! Don says he can re-wire my unfinished ceiling to give me ONE centered chandelier. Well, why did they wait so long to tell me this??? I think they were truly tired of my talking about it and wanted to shut me up!
Come back next week to see the Final Reveal and this little baby all dolled up in her new role in My Illusion!!
Thank you all so much for cheering us on and keeping us focused to get these Rooms DONE! Please pop over to my sweet Challenge Friends ... and see what they are up to!!
And PLEASE come back next week to see the Final Reveal!!
