One Room Challenge, Week Four

ORC

Welcome to week 4 of the One Room Challenge!  Only TWO WEEKS left to go.  This post is later this morning because the vanity came last night and my very patient husband was up late assembling it.  Here she is this morning with a little mocked-up mirror that I had in the closet (sorry for the shadows):

I am really happy with the quality (for $130), the color, the size and the scale.  I am so happy with the big drawer for storage too.  I can’t wait to style her up!

Here is the sad news — the awesome bench from Home Goods is too wide for the vanity.  But, I moved it on the wall next to my end table last night and I didn’t hate it there.  I am going to play around with it because I really don’t want to return her!

So, this week, was full of painting.  The ceiling got two coats of paint and is DONE!  Two of the four walls have two coats and tonight we are going to finish the other two walls.  Here are some shots that give you an idea of the true color of the walls:

I am totally obsessed with this color (Benjamin Moore Fanfare).  I am thinking about using the remainder of the paint for our laundry room.

The little sheepskin rug for the other side of the bed came in yesterday, so I am waiting on the seagrass rug which apparently has shipped, but I have no tracking information (don’t you hate that?).  I have a plan for my DIY art and want to surprise you all next week.  This week, I am going to focus on the windows and pick up the white panels and the matchstick shades. Also, I need to find a suitable stool now for the vanity.  All with two weeks and $188.82 to stay on budget — eeeeeek!  :)

Can I do it??  Stay tuned!

    Loving it all so far! The rug is going to make a big impact!

  2. Love that vanity! It looks really good.

  3. I saw that exact same bench at Home Goods and I love it -wanted it but have no room for it. It really has great lines, glad you’re keeping it. Would it work at the foot of your bed? Love your wall color.

  4. You can do it!!! ;) It looks great so far. I LOVE the X-shaped sides on the vanity – so pretty.

  5. I agree, the paint color looks great! Your right not to return that bench, it can work anywhere it will fit in!
