Hey friends! can you believe that it’s already week 4 of the One Room Challenge? For those of you that aren’t farmilar, the One Room Challenge is a super fun blogger event sponsored by Linda of Calling it Home. Participants have 6 weeks to totally transform a room.
I have participated in the past. Master Bedroom (which we didn’t finish), and the Guest Bedroom.
So, since last week we have been working on some of the furniture and decor.
Just as a reminder, this is what the room we are working with looks like.
Here is where we were after Easter weekend. Chandelier painted and hung (although not working yet), everything painted white. We also have a rug in there, but I think I need a different one…I’m not liking it. and I found a cute little half circle table to hold all my husbands plants.
Now, in the last week, We have been working on the dinning table.
We are going to do the Oak Cerusing Method I did on the coffee table. So first thing we had to strip the table down. Which is always a process we are probably about half done.
I followed the tutorial in the link above except this time I used a different stripper that was much better. The fumes were much more controlled and it worked better….
So we have a bit more work to do on that, and then next we have to re-stain it and then do the liming wax!
This isn’t the best picture, but check out this abstract pelican!!! i love him, and I love him even more because my husband Chris painted it for me! We have 2 matching birds that we need to frame to put over the console!!
This week, I am waiting for fabric to be delivered so I can upholster the cornices, sew the cushions, get a new rug, wait for the lemon tree to come to plant it, do the electrical work, frame the pictures, accessorize the console!
phew. Wish me luck!
Be sure to follow along with all the other participants here!
