One Room Challenge ... Week 3


Welcome to week 3!!

Once again I must say ... I am loving this 6 week makeover!  Its such a feeling of accomplishment to know I can break things down and only have to accomplish a few items a week.  I am in the process of redecorating our guest bedroom and bath and linking up with 71 other bloggers courtesy of Calling It Home. If you missed the previous weeks ... you can catch up here and here.   

I had a plan this week to paint both the bedroom and bathroom.  But, of course the best laid plans never work out.  So I scratched that plan and made a new one.  Moved painting to week 4 and week 4 to week 3.  

Here is my current status ...  

1.  I have scored all the art for the rooms.  

At least I think I have ... of course on week 5 when I am styling I will decide I need more.  I will think about that then!  These turtle prints were scored at Scott's Antique Market on Friday ... exactly what I was hoping for!  Paired these with bamboo frames I already owned and perfection!




2.  Tested out the paint for the spaces and love them all!!


Love the blue in the bedroom!  Its a perfect play off the Ralph Lauren lamps.


I am loving it with the bedding!


Hello blue ... goodbye flu looking wheat, yellow color!


And the glossy blue on the cabinets will be amazing!!!  

3.  Chose some new brass knobs for the future navy bathroom cabinets.  And to think some years ago I was stripping my life of all brass ... 


4.  Ordered this toilet paper holder for the bathroom.  Some gold spray paint and it will be perfect!


5.  Purchased two more cans of this Magic paint ... can never have enough spray paint!  This week was all about painting things gold.  


6.  Took apart the plain Jane stool I purchased at Home Goods and prepped it for the bathroom!


Some gold paint and this left over fabric ... 


And HELLO LOVER!!!  I am madly in love with the result!  One $30 plain stool made fancy for my new guest bathroom!  I know I am biased but I can't stop staring at it!


I love how the details of the stool pop with the gold paint!


7.  Picked up the completed bolster pillow for the bed ... 


Yes, I monogram almost everything.  And yes its MY monogram.  I am the lady of the house and its the old school way to do it.  The bar ware is all his monogram, along with his pillowcases and his towels.  He has plenty of monogram face time, pinky swear!


I am thrilled with the bolster pillow ... absolutely thrilled!

8.  Next up, the chair for the bedroom.  Here it is the day I scored it from Details Atlanta ... 


During ... (after the upholsterer removed the old seat and back)


And after ... 


Holy cr@*!!  YES MA'AM!!!



I am overjoyed.  Absolutely thrilled.  It's ridiculous good!!!


And I took it back to the upholsterer.  It is currently getting its blue leopard seat.  I can't wait to pick it up and set it in its newly painted room next week.  

9.  Lastly ... I scored this fabulous garden stool to set next to the gold bamboo chair.  


I will divide up the books I have set aside for the room and sit some on top of the stool.  

EEK!!  Its coming together!! 

I could not be happier with the results so far.  I really think once the paint is finished the room will feel way more pulled together and then I can start on the panels, shower curtain and moving the furniture into its new place.  And of course the wheatish, yellow, fluish color will be no more!

Hope you love!!

See you next Thursday for Week 4!!
