It is week 4 of the One Room Challenge! If you are here for the first time – WELCOME! If you have been following along for a bit – THANK YOU! If you are here to see if I still have my sanity… yep it’s sorta here. 😉 Today’s post will be somewhat brief due to the tasks ahead and the number of hours in a single day just don’t seem to be enough. Yesterday the featured designers shared great inspiration and you can see it here…
Here is what we have been up too….
The Winter Gates paint color is just perfect. Don’t you love how paint can change the attitude of the room? I have painted 100’s of 1 inch split ball pieces Renaissance Brown for the wall treatment.
The riveted wall treatment is looking fabulous and the ceiling is next. The rug has come in and it is gorgeous.
Oh! A bunch of really fun and funky gears, pipes and gauges arrived as well as the COOLEST light switch EVER!
I squealed like a 5-year-old on Christmas morning when the package arrived and immediately tore a part the packaging. Click on the picture- Steam Punk Interiors create quality pieces.
Decisions were made…
After contemplating just buying curtains – I decided to see what fabric I had on hand (yeah, I am one of those) and lo and behold – I had a bolt of beautiful deep blue linen. Looks like I will be sewing this week.
I hunted for appropriate chairs for the space and have decided to reupholster two that we already own. I found a great faux alligator material that will look pretty stunning.
Lampshades will get a little spray paint love.
After searching for a reasonably priced port-hole mirror – I decided to fake one.
I have purchased the pool noodles, copper tubing, spackle and rubber washers…. which will (fingers crossed) become tentacle sconces to light up the bookshelves, dreaming big here folks.
Scouring the countryside has also led to the decision to cut down the current desk and retain it. I will keep you updated on that adventure.
Whew, nose to the grind stone – this is going to be epic… one way or the other (HA!).
