One Room Challenge // Week 4

April 23, 2014

week four. over halfway there, kids. so...this is the week that i suspect most of us start to feel the crunch. i'm a little stressed and i'm not even attempting anything all that ambitious compared to some of these rock stars (that includes you, linker uppers).

let's see what we've accomplished this week...
(quasi apologies for taking photos right before sundown. i mean, no one really wants to share good photos until the final reveal so i care but don't care. this is not how i intend to show the real deal.)

closet doors got a sassy new coat of black paint.


they haven't been rehung because i'm not finished painting inside.
shocker.

at first, i thought i wanted to paint the back of the room door black as well.
but i've reconsidered. i think it might weigh that corner down too much.

the rug is in and i'm obsessed.


persian rugs foreva!!!

i took the hardware off the burl dresser for another round of cleaning.
it wasn't 100% and that drove me nuts. fingers crossed they don't require paint.
painting brass is like killing kittens. it's very sad. you don't do it.

i like the gumball machine. excited to show you what color i settled on!
later.


sorrynotsorry for the blurry pic.
definitely need to get the art situation figured out quickly.
consulting my inspiration on the regular to keep myself in check. edit edit edit.

ordered samples of each of these for drawer liners.
because details, y'all. details.


the other side of the room leaves a bit to be desired.
i'm still debating whether i want drapes. maybe sheers just to soften the windows?
why are window treatments so difficult?
the brass and lucite table from week 2 is an excellent printer perch next to the desk.

i'm all over the cork board situation, but will find another and hang them vertically for scale.
and for maximum inspiration in my face at all times.


my trusty assistant agrees.
he literally tried to be in every picture.
not sure the parsons chair or ficus will stay. perhaps one, but probably not both.

all in all, we're coming right along.
there has been much progress on the elimination of paper piles, so i am pleased.
now to get everything filed and stored away in a painted closet and lined drawers...

next week we'll talk finishing touches!
 and probably last minute additions that i am out of my mind to consider.

what are our other ORC friends up to this week?

The closet doors look great and I LOVE that rug! I hope you don't mind if I steal your drawer liner idea for my daughter's vanity. I was already planning on painting the inside of the drawers pink, but now they might need a nice liner to match...hmmm. Thanks!

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

That my friend, is the best looking printer table I've ever seen. :) And you kill me with that rug.

Wow. Your quasi reveal is looking pretty spectacular. Love the white, wood, brass, and lucite. The black is perfect on the doors. And that rug!!!

Kristin@bliss-athome.com said...

I am loving it all! The rug is completely mouth-watering!!!And that brass antelope has a buddy at my house. I scored one while thrifting a few weeks ago and it is one of my fave finds ever! So fun to follow along with all this :) xo Kristin

So so so good! I agree about painting brass - it is like killing kittens. Tarnished brass makes me so sad too though :(.

Love that rug! I think the black doors look really crisp against the white walls. I am in love with the drawer liners and would be happy with either one. This is a great office.

Carol@6WilsonBlog.com said...

Loving that rug. Looking good in there ;-)

pam {simple details} said...

That rug couldn't be more perfect!! What a pretty statement with the black doors, too!

mrs. V | Chez V said...

I can hardly get past that gorgeous brass menagerie collection to comment on the rest of the goodness happening here. Rug - killer. Chair - killer. Doors - killer. Lucite table - killer. See where I'm going with this? Can not wait to see this in all it's glory.

charmaine said...

We have a new hashtag...#persianrugforeva ! Looking good!

Kerry Steele- Design du Monde said...

I am totally envious of that rug and all of the brass you have going on in the room.

caroline [the diy nurse] said...

In love with everything so far. We painted our hallway doors a glossy black and there's really just no substitute. It's like you're in some foreign chic film. I start talking to my husband in french and he's all like "you don't speak french" and then I remember he's right.

also, kitty can photobomb any picture as far as im concerned ;)

Krista @ Goodwill Glam said...

I love everything so far! Especially the rug and those dark closet doors!!! Can't wait to see what color you decided on for the gumball machine.

XO,

Albertina M. Cisneros said...

the doors look amazing in black!! yes! and the rug is so amazing! I love that you are even considering drawer liners...such a perfectionist. That brass bowl!! I can't wait to see what goes on your store!

Sherry Calamia said...

Looks great! I love the black doors!

Reichel Broussard said...

Love the black closet doors and the rug (of course!). And what a glam printer stand. Bravo!

Kim said...

Yup. the doors and the persian rug. Absolutely and love seeing where this is going!

Traci Hutton said...

That rug is a stunner!

Elisa of Fancy Free Me said...

Hang on! Where is that marbled paper from?? I've been searching for a fab drawer liner for months and all I can find is dated chevron from 5 years ago. I'm so excited for this room. The rug is bad ass and the closet doors are great, glad you didn't paint the other door too (although I too want to paint every freakin door black) Happy Weekend!

Mary Ann at classic•casual•home said...

Your darling assistant and I LOVE the rug. The black doors are the perfect edge of drama. Great job. Pour yourself a glass of wine...it's Friday!

Have a wonderful weekend!
