Hey hey! Here we are at week 4 of the One Room Challenge. This past week was the hardest for me. If you’re just tuning in, I’m completely re-vamping our main guest room in six week’s time. I’ve linked up with Calling It Home’s famous series and we have six weeks to complete the project. This week I primed and painted that dark brown and wow, it took FOREVER.
I had to travel this week for work so I spent the majority of Friday priming and painting. A little elbow grease and six hours later, my room was a beautiful blue gray.
I’m pretty sure I’m good with never painting again! My little African mud cloth project came along but not without a huge scare. I cut the piece in two and took it to Hobby Lobby to have it float framed. After an hour long conversation with specific instructions for the hanger (including WHITE matting), I arrived to find them like this:
I had picked a very light mat to really let the piece jump out, although the Hobby Lobby employees were not sharing my vision. Even when I mentioned I wanted it white they were quite resistant to my idea. Why would I want it on black? You could hardly see the piece.
Thankfully they were able to get them removed and mounted correctly. I walked in the door scared to look but found these waiting for me:
Perfection. I am SO excited. The chandelier arrived also and it looks great! I’m so excited to get this project finished.
Here’s what I have left to do:
-hang the chandelier
-receive the headboard (comes Monday!!!)
-purchase trim and apply to the drapery
-style and take pictures
I have a feeling I’m going to be finished early. Sometimes a deadline is all I need to get going! Hope you’ve enjoyed following along. Make sure to stop by the link up page here to see other’s projects!
