One Room Challenge: Week Four

February 27, 2013



Welcome! For those readers who are popping in now, the One Room Challenge is where 20 bloggers attempt to makeover a room in 6 weeks.  



I bet you all have come over to see if I accomplished anything.

The answer is: NO.

 It is report card time, which means marking and writing report card comments for 20 children. My i's needed to be dotted and t's crossed. To top it off, I came down with a cold for the 3rd time since January. Darn sniffly second graders. So my head was not in the One Room Challenge mind set. I'll have report handed in Friday and then I can breathe! 


But....

This past week my Panyl samples arrived. They threw in a whole bunch of samples, some fabulous colours and woodgrain patterns, which are gorgeous. 


This week they should be launching new patterns: chevron, quatrefoil and stripes. They knew I was their girl since I adore stripes and chevrons.

 Maybe adore is an understatement, I am KNOWN for my love of stripes and chevron.

 Sad? Pathetic? Obsessed? Passionate?

You decide.
 I am excited to have been asked by Panyl to be one of the first to try out a pattern from their line. I want a bright graphic backdrop on the back of my bookcase. I am leaning towards the emerald green or slate, in stripes. If I chose to go with the black and white graphic rug from Ikea, stripes will go well. If I find a plain jute rug then I will go with  chevron. 


I also shopped the house, I found this in my garage to use in the games room as a tray.
It is a vintage Coke bottle tray that I bought a few years ago. 


I then moved a few lamps into storage.

And this weekend I am going to do this:

  1. I absolutely love the white curtain with the pom-pom trim!! I am planning my bedroom, (well, actually, the entire house, as I'm moving in an month) am always wanted to do white curtains with black trim. I have yet to decide whether to use pom-pom, greek key or simple black!!
    Good luck with ORC!!

  4. Love the curtain detailing. This Panyl thing is so brilliant. They found the right person to try it. It's like picking nail polish, can't go wrong with so many of them.

  12. Report card time - it'll definitely be a happy dance day on Friday for you :-) The panelling looks very cool, and I'm looking forward to seeing it in action... and you dug that vintage coke crate out of your garage? Say what?! Made my heart skip a beat! Looove that piece and can totally see it in the games room. :-)
