Friends, this is week two of the One Room Challenge! That means I have a total of six posts to redesign a room from start to finish, sharing the gritty details with you every step of the way. Of course this is the genius of Linda from Calling It Home. She is hosting the invited group of 20 participants on Wednesdays, and then Thursdays are the days we get to join in.
If you were so kind to leave a comment on that post, please be sure to scroll down to read my reply.
I tried to respond to everyone.
I'm going to keep my words short, and my photos large for this post. ;-)
The light I have now was never intended to stay there this long. Hence-- hoping for a wavy, vintage, acrylic light, similar to this.
I found this bamboo desk on CL. I believe it's a Thomasville desk. That's getting painted!
Can you see my friend Julie from Simple Redesign? She's so cute. I spotted this hutch in her workroom long before I ever knew it would be mine. It was love at first sight! I actually like the wood finish as is, but it won't work in my office that way, so she's getting a paint job
-- Simple Redesign style.
This canned and chrome chair is exactly what I wanted for my desk chair. I found it on Etsy for a steal. A STEAL.
This is fabric that started it all. Isn't that funny? You never where inspiration will strike. This zebra fabric is a creation of Mari Robeson, and I fell hard for those sweet zebras. You can find it here.
And then, last minute, I found this wallpaper and new I *needed* it. Some way. Some how. There is a plate rail (trim) about six feet up from the floor, and the wallpaper will go under the molding.
Oh, and did I mention I'm going to rip up the carpet and paint the floor blue?
Should be no problem...right?
I know it all looks and sounds quite crazy right now-- but I'm hoping it will all come together like pieces of the imaginary design puzzle in my head.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Can you see where I'm headed? What's your favorite element?
