Week 2, go here; ,Week 3, go here; Week4, go here, Week 5, go here, The Finale, go here.
And voila....the challenge was born. One room... until, or in this case, in just 6 weeks!! 15 bloggers, I like to call us the "Freshman 15", are in on this challenge. Each Wednesday, we will all be posting updates on our rooms. In addition to that, there will probably be all sorts of planning, DIY-ing, and mistakes along the way. At the bottom of each Wednesday's post, you can find a link to the other participants. I hope you stick with us for this crazy adventure.
My One Room - If you are a regular reader of my blog, then this will be no surprise... it is the first up on my Home Goals.....my dining room.
Some of the pictures were taken long before I blogged, so I apologize for the poor quality.
This is our dumping room. Unfortunately, it is the first room that you see when you enter my home. I am so tired of making excuses for it. Here are my thoughts (welcome to my brain)
About a year ago, I painted my china hutch and added that. 8 months ago, I found head-chairs that need to be reupholstered. 4 months ago, I found a farm table on Craigslist....here is what it looks like now
It is still a dumping ground. This corner holds all my basement "stuff" while it was out of commission
This corner is where my husband puts all his "stuff" when he gets home (and more sewing "stuff")
This corner has fabric clutter
This corner is not that bad (this sconce has to be lowered)...What window treatment?
This is my list (in no particular order)
Fix the color of the china hutch...it is too light and blends into the wall (I love the wall color)
Put planks on the ceiling under the crown molding
Change the color of the pagoda lanterns
Find artwork to flank the hutch
Reupholster all the dining chairs
Drapes & cornice
Lower the sconces and paint them
Paint the mirror frames
Swap the pine cabinet for open shelves
Now be sure to check out all the other rooms! For week 2 go here
