I'm back for my third go round at the One Room Challenge link up. For those of you who are new to this phenomenon, here's the deal: Hosted by Linda at Calling it Home, bloggers come out of the woodwork to transform one room into something fabulous, in six weeks. Everyone checks in each week to show their progress. It is great fun. Really. Never mind the blood, sweat and tears, people. My last two projects are here and here.
I am planning on kicking my living room into shape.
Whereas I like the general vibe of my living room, I plan to do some fixes that have been bugging me for a while. Some involve fluffing, others are pesky details.
Both sets of triple doors need to be repainted. The walls need it too but I'll probably just clean them up because painting isn't really an option right now -huge room with no clear stopping points.
I really like all the furniture in this room, which I have acquired over time but I plan to change things up a bit to make it wear and look better. I'm aiming to sharpen things up a bit here, without losing the laid back vibe. So the transformational attempt will be a little less boheme, and a bit more staid and gentlemanly, without looking like a cliche (I always have to say that -no cane stands, riding boots or fake books).
These chairs are in for a major overhaul. I want to return them to their original mid-century roots by changing out the scale of the cushions and toning down the fabric (goodbye shabby chic overstuffed puffiness!)
Here's my little analog master list of everything I plan to do. I will be doing this challenge in real time so I can't wait to get started.
Make sure to check out all the linking participant here. I can't tell you how many new blogs I've found to stalk from the ORC!
