Is it really week #4 of the One Room Challenge? All we can say is those talented, ambitious participants who are knocking out walls and taking names: more power to you! We are struggling just deciding on layout and window treatments! But, we are newbies. So we are going to cut ourselves some slack. Sometimes we just say, “this is our practice round”.
So here is where we are at: we made a few furniture choices. We went with the World Market white desk. Here’s a little progress shot. At least now with a desk and a make-shift desk, we can still get some work done! Also started organizing samples and supplies in the closet. Why is it during this middle weeks you feel like your working so hard, but it just feels like a big fat mess?
We also picked out a couch/futon. This was important as we did kick Kim’s daughter Hannah out of her bedroom and she will probably be coming back to visit in a few weeks. Got this close out at World Market also. And putting it together was so simple even we could do it. We were able to get a great deal on a closeout, but its similar to this.
So, next week we have a lot to accomplish. We are changing out the drapery panels. Because we already have plantation shutters, it won’t be necessary to have functioning panels, so we can get by with less fabric. We are often asked how do you determine how many widths (54 in) do you need for drapery panels. The biggest question is do you want the functioning(to close) or not? On our youtube channel we try to simplify for easy measuring Here is quick guideline to figure for both.
We are are thinking some type of banded drapery panels which include “navy” along with looking for emerald green chairs.
We are thinking because of the size of the room, if we are going to get two chairs in it, they are going to have to be not huge and we love swivel. Saw this at Joss and Main and would love to find it in an Emerald Green!
So next week we are headed over to our favorite furniture store in Greenville, Carolina Furniture and Interiors, to see if Linda can help us out.
Only two weeks left? Yikes!
Have a great weekend!
Kim and Jeanne
