One Room Challenge: Week Three -Second Floor Landing

Welcome back to week three of the One Room Challenge link event hosted by Linda at Calling it Home.  If you are unfamiliar with this site, do check it out as there are many, many great blogs and projects to see and discover. It's astounding.

OK so let's get down to business. In reality this one room challenge has morphed into a whole house challenge for me. That's not really a good thing. Let me back up and explain. 

Part of the master plan is to move a longer, narrower table that is currently in the living room up here.

This is she. It is a great 8 footer that was one of my best all time ever street finds here in SF.  It came out of a school and had linoleum on the top which I took off.

Coinciding with this table shuffle, Ethan decided he wanted to do a major overhaul of his room that entailed changing his bed and moving this cabinet out to make way for a couch.  

No problem, all the panels actually unscrew and come apart on this bad boy so it is easy to move, which is a good thing because did I mention that the he-man who usually moves stuff around for me, AKA my husband, had his back seize up like a Russian bank account on Monday? 

Anyway, no one was too psyched for this cabinet to just replace the long table in the living room so I thought maybe I could put it where the piano goes.


 Thankfully that thing is on wheels.


So Ethan and I wheeled it over there just to see.  Of course this will mean having to move around the art and because everything is such a mess right now, I can't tell if I'm going to like this or not.


I do like the cabinet here in the in the dining area. And I think it will look nice and cozy over there after I put the doors back on and style, etc. In case you are having a hard time making sense of all this, my main living area is a giant open space and you can get a better sense of the layout from this post.

So virtually no progress in the upstairs hallway and a big mess everywhere else… Two steps forward, one step back. You can see week one here and week two here.

Thanks for checking in :)

I know! I was very lucky to inherit a few things last year from my husband's family and I have bought some things over the years in major disrepair which I have restored myself.
