I blinked and Week 3 of the One Room Challenge sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens quickly came to a close. I hoped I would be further along at this point but attention needs to be paid on prepping prior to painting and that’s exactly where I’m delayed. I’ve patched all the holes in the wall, sanded and patched again and planning to prime and paint over the long Easter weekend.
My contractor (and brother) Paul came to the rescue this week and installed the crown moulding throughout the room which makes a huge difference and is something that I definitely couldn’t have done by myself.
Reducing, reusing and recycling - Redesign - is at the foundation of everything I do. I always try and incorporate vintage and antique elements and transform them to achieve a look that has been curated over time. This project is no exception and I’ll be bringing in several redesigned finds for the space including:
an antique burled walnut headboard and footboard from Kijiji
two vintage nightstands found at our Orillia Habitat for Humanity ReStore
a vintage desk found at a local thrift shop
an antique art deco dresser from Kijiji
a handpainted Habitat for Humanity ReStore brushstroke lamp inspired by Bunny Williams
This upcoming week is going to be a big week! I’m determined to finish painting the room and nightstands and with the help of my Mom, hang the mural for major impact.
