Welcome back to the One Room Challenge Link Up, Week 3. Yes, the half way point, that really is more than half way because Week 6 means you get to see final photos. It is kind of a head fake to call it six weeks!! Right Linda ?? Thankfully, Linda realizes that we all need a good push to get things going. She created this 6 weeks of craziness just for us. She is crazy loyal like that!
For those that have no idea what the ORC is ... it is a challenge to complete one room in 6 weeks. And it's like going to the gym. If you are on your own you can kind of fake it. But if you link up with this crowd you have no choice but to finish! I do love the ORC for many reasons, but the main one is that I am so busy working on other people's homes that mine seems to get pushed aside. The ORC kicks me into gear and I cannot use excuses like ... "Well, I haven't found the perfect piece yet" or "I am going to work on it next week" ... because that NEVER happens!!
So back to Week Three ... here's progress!
Please take a moment to fully enjoy my new corner!! Root Cellar Designs Wallpaper and Sherwin Williams "Natural Choice" for the walls ... Naturally!
I am happy to report that things are moving forward and it is a good thing, because I leave for HighPoint Market tomorrow and won't be returning until next Tuesday. 6 days of a big fat nothing going on here and that has me a little antsy! If you need to catch up here is my inspiration Week One and my Plan at Week Two.
And yes, do you remember this window of mine from Old House Parts in Kennebunk Maine? You can re-acquaint yourself here!
The window is the perfect accent for the wallpaper and another added layer with the gold and grey heron print. I am more than thrilled that this room has plantation shutters. Drapes would be dynamite, but I don't want to invest that kind of money in a rental. The beauty of window treatments is that it warms a space up. Since I won't have window treatments, the layering on this focal wall is even more important to warm up the space and give it some depth.
And then these chairs. We have had them in the natural state for far too long. They are about to get a good dose of Sherwin Williams "Iron Ore" to pull out the backdrop of the wallpaper and be a nice pop of color off the farm table.
And then the knobs on my mirrored console, one broke.
So I ordered these, from Wayfair.
I am headed to High Point tomorrow and will probably see a thousand things I think will be perfect in my Dining Room. But I will have to be pinching myself as a reminder that this is indeed a Challenge. With #KMIProjectRental this is not about a life commitment!!
