Welcome back to One Room Challenge Week 5! If you’re just joining in the fun, One Room Challenge (ORC), created by Linda from Calling it Home, is a 6 week challenge where 20 talented professional designers, and professional bloggers/interior designers at heart, like myself, redo a room in their home or a clients. I’m transforming our master bedroom. To see the full transformation you can start at the beginning, Week 1.
Last week I gave you a sneak peak at all the fun accessories I’ve found for our master bedroom! I also had several outstanding items on my “punch/to do list”. Here’s a sneak peak of where I am today.
This is the last shot of the room before the big reveal! I didn’t want to give away too much, but as you can see I made a decision on the toss pillows.
Operation gold tray is complete! I found this beautiful silver Greek key mirrored tray at HomeGoods that matches perfectly with the gold Greek key picture frame. A little antique gold spray paint and voila, I have myself a gold tray!
The blue hand painted patchwork tiles from Ballard Designs that I was waiting weeks for finally arrived yesterday! They look even better in person.
Antique family mirror or grey distressed wood mirror
After following up with at least 20 different mirror and glass companies, no one in Charlotte is able to cut beveled non straight edges. Thus, I went back to the first mirror and glass shop and paid for my grandparents mirror to be replaced without beveled edges. Down side, it will take a few weeks. Upside, on my third trip to HomeGoods this week I found a beautiful grey distressed sunburst like mirror. I absolutely love it! However, I’m not sold on it right above the dark wood dresser.
Of course it wouldn’t be a week without a major down side. If you recall, I have an upholstered headboard, Pottery Barn (Riley), and want to make it custom by adding nailhead and grey fabric trim similar to the photos below.
A Thoughtful Place
I finally talked to someone at Design Services of Charlotte and followed up with an e-mail for an estimate. Despite my additional attempts to follow up, I have yet to receive any estimate, and at this point it’s not feasible in my timeline. UGH! Back to the drawing board…
I headed over to Lowes and bought myself some nailhead trim, a heavy duty stapler, and staples. Yes, that’s right another DIY project is underway and I’m attempting to do nailhead and fabric trim on my own. Bonus to not having to pay a seamstress for nailhead and fabric trim detail on my headboard is being able to splurge on new sconces that will go well with the room’s fixtures.
Here’s a sneak peak at some of the other accessories I found.
