It’s week five (of six) of this thing – the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda from Calling it Home. I’m making over our guest room in six weeks and have shared weekly progress –
I’ve made all of the purchases for the room. I used my new, favorite home decor planner and organizer, itsums to “save” all items I wanted to buy in one place. That made purchase day much easier.
The hide rug and butterfly chair cover arrived from Urban Outfitters, and I wasn’t sold. I guess I actually was sold, but I’m planning to return both. I’m thinking the space can hold its own without a rug. And I found an even better accent chair for a lot cheaper.
Ignore that hairball. I was of course drawn to the brass detail, but I really loved the lines too. Plus, at $40 how could you not?
If you haven’t noticed, that yummy green headboard is actually a king size….the guest bed is a full. When I was thinking about buying the headboard to hoard in our storage unit (knowing we had no king bed), the seller said she used it on a queen sized bed and liked how it framed the bed. I figured I would give it a try on the guest full bed, and I too liked the look. Then I had this vision of painting an end table an olive green color that kind of competes with the headboard color and kind of compliments it. Hopefully THAT color is one the colors pictured above. I’m leaning towards Relentless Olive (6th from the left).
Oh, and there’s this…
Lucent Lightshop: I have no words for you. You are pure genius over there. This cluster chandelier MAKES the space.
I now have one week to figure out how to photograph it with the room in the shot. You should have seen me on the floor getting the shot above.
