ORC: Week 5!

Welcome back! If you are popping by for the first time, I am participating as a guest participant in the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda from Calling It Home. It is where 20 guest designers make over a room in 6 weeks! As a guest participant you jump into the madness yourself and cry and wish you didn't sign up in the first place, which is where I am currently.

Again, I am so behind. Ugh. My dining room is a massive disaster. It always gets worse before it gets better, right? The dining room walls are ready for paint but I have been so crazy busy with my day job and then family at night. I have nothing to show, except one chair was upholstered and then I realized I laid the direction of the pattern the wrong way. Why, oh, why??? Trying to get things done in 5 weeks is just not my forte.

I have been collecting a few pretty things from Homesense and shopping the house for the room. This planter came home with me.

Not sure if it will house a real orchid or a fake one. I have collected some artwork for the gallery wall, and found some fabric to slipcover 2 of the parson chairs until I find the right chair for the head of the table. I am doing this whole makeover without sponsorship, so its BUDGET friendly. So far all I have spent is $90 on the chairs, $60 for paint and $10 for the planter. Pretty impressive I might add.

So hopefully I can get this done before next week.

To Do:
  • Paint chairs
  • Upholster seats
  • Slip cover 2 parson's chairs
  • Paint or stain dining table
  • Paint walls
  • Accessories for sideboard
  • Art?
  • Repaint sideboard (decided to keep it red)
