Well, we didn’t quite make the link up for the One Room Challenge last week. We swear we are not slackers! Kim spent Spring Break with her daughter in California, visiting her son in LA; galavanting around and doing fun things like this:
……and she lived to tell about it!
So while, I held down the fort for our Etsy Shop. So not a lot of actual One Room Challenge “work” got done.
This happens sometimes with us. We are usually full steam ahead, then something in evidently sidetracks us. A trip to LA was a big one….usually we get sidetracked for much less.
Anyway, we are back at it. And if all goes as planned we will narrow things down this week and choose one of the most important pieces for an office; namely a desk. We definitely have loved the idea of a crisp white desk since we visited designer Michelle Dickens of MDickensdesign in her office a while back. She has since moved to another office, but we loved the bright, simple clean lines of this desk.
Then we saw this beauty on Houzz :
But at almost $600, we are leaning toward the one we originally saw at World Market for $199. And if we are lucky enough to be able to use a coupon, the savings will allow more $$ to use elsewhere. We love the way the brass and white compliment each other, but can possibly get a brass work lamp, or brass shelving to hold samples, etc.
We have also decided to redo the window treatments. A few years ago Kim put in plantation shutters. This room is on the main floor and faces the street so its a great look when facing house and provides privacy in an instant, yet still allows some light in.
But, because we ARE in the window treatment business, drapery panels would be a nice touch to frame the shutters. We don’t need them to function, so we will not need as much fabric or as many widths.
In our next post we might just give a quick tutorial on how to figure out how to figure out drapery panel widths. Its actually not as confusing as it seems!
We have lots to do before then!
And make sure you check out all of the great room renovations underway as we speak on the One Room Challenge. These design bloggers are getting stuff done!
