Happy Thursday everybody! Week 4 of the One Room Challenge is here and I can’t believe it! Only two weeks left until the final reveal! I can’t believe how fast the days have flown by. To say I am stressed out would be an understatement. This week I finished the faux roman shade for the window and it is so cute. I hung it higher than the window so it really makes the window feel taller. This window is very wide and very short; it is an above the ground basement window. For some reason, this faux roman shade gave me some real problems haha and I am so glad it is finished and worked out the way I wanted it to!
I spray painted the accent table frame gold this week as well. Now I just need to get the wooden top built for it. This will be perfect to keep at the side of my desk for my printer.
I also began painting this rug, but man is it time consuming! I absolutely love Kilim rugs but they are so expensive! I’ve had this rug from Hobby Lobby for a while now (it used to be in my living room). I wasn’t loving the monochromatic look for this room so I decided to paint it to look like a Kilim rug. First, I created my little pattern and then duplicated it many times to form this design.
Here is a portion of the rug painted, I’m planning on touching it up and sharpening the edges at the end. This rug is 5X8 feet so this project has been no easy task! I think I am really going to love the end result once it is finished!
I’ve also done some shopping this week, I ordered some awesome art prints from the etsy shop Lila+Lola and made a trip up to Ikea for a cork board, wall organizer, and office garbage can.
Goals for this next week:
- Finish the printer table
- Finish the rug
- Move all furniture into place (which includes an awesome old easel, rolling cart, and leather swivel chair which I have been hoarding).
I want to have all of these things done so that I am able to focus on the details. I have one long built in shelf that runs the length of the room to style and decorate. I also have desk tops and blank walls to style and make awesome and functional. So much to do and so little time!
