One Room Challenge: Living Room -Week Six

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!

I love it. So warm and inviting. Those blue cushions on your old family chairs are amazing. Love your gaffers tape painting--I thought it was two, at first, one stacked over the other. You have done an amazing job. You did well tidying up the background spaces for the photos, too. My other rooms are currently hazard zones--and that's no exaggeration.

Dude. Your house is so rad. The windows, SS cabs, light! I think we both gravitate to that boho, eclectic look. I cannot believe the painting is made of tape. I love the long, low bookcase and how it anchors that side of the room. The cushions are fantastic. Well done lady. It's perfect.

I love your house! My 9 yr old just sat down next to me and said "hey, that's a really nice space." I totally agree, and love that tape painting.

I swear that my various street finds are always the best things in my house. And yes, those shelves are clean, did I text you those nasty photos or are you just guessing how bad the dust was behind there? ;)
