It's week six of the One Room Challenge. That means it's reveal day! All I can say is..boy, that was quick. Sort of like pulling a tooth -painful but over before I knew it.
So my objective here was to spiff this room up. I painted and taped and sewed like nobody's business. It was a challenge, believe you me. It does feel very put together now, so it was worth all the heartache despite all my copious complaining (sorry familia).
You can see more of the details on what I did week to week here(one, two, three, four, five), but pictures speak a thousand words so let's get down to it.
My favorite part of this project was restoring the arc lamp which could quite possibly be my best street find ever. Next week I will revisit the gaffers tape painting (because I am also gaffering the closet space under my steps and it is almost done, hoo ha, and I'll give my source and technique at that time). I will also go over some of the sewing I did. I am planning on sewing a pair more of pillows for the white couch ends but I want to do that in dyed linen and I just plain ran out of time so that will be a new post as well.
It's late, I'm out! Please go check out the other ORC action here and thank you Linda for hosting this crazy One Room Challenge whoozeewhatsee. It's been great!
