ORC Week 5 - We've got Paint (& Some other fun stuff)

Ok, we're in crunch time for the ONE ROOM CHALLENGE!


I might be able to finish my son's room on time next week since we actually just got paint -YESTERDAY!
Clean slate
Granted I 'begged' my painter to hurry on with the room and explained to him my reasons (including the ORC), I'm thinking he might be looking at me with both eyebrows meeting and with a very weird-ed out look! LOL!

My fabulous husband also finished adding these....


I really have been in love with Campaign furniture for a while now...

But I didn't want to spend so much on dressers and nightstands for my kids room. So I was so happy when I found this hardware from Home Depot. And here are my more affordable versions of this popular design...


Closer look at hardware
Side Table

I used the IKEA MALM series for this project. And like most IKEA pieces, they are great on their own and great too as 'blank canvasses'!

I'm also going to update the lighting!


I just couldn't resist when I saw this lighting, perfect for my young man's room and love for reading.

Now all we need to tackle is the Desk and of course, the most important aspect, the WALLPAPER! -

The MESS we're in right now

Now, let's get on to see how close the others are too to finishing their rooms!


Have A Wonderful Mother's Day Weekend Everyone!
