Week Three: One Room Challenge

Welcome to week three of my One Room Challenge! Thank you to Linda @ Calling It Home for hosting this semi-annual sensation! You can catch up with my plan from week one here and progress in week two here.

This week I spent most of my energy obsessing over wallpaper. And that's all I am going to say about that.

I worked a bit on my bar'moire (thanks to Albertina @ Mimosa Lane for that perfect term). 
I originally removed the wood patterned inlay so I could glam it up with gold paint. But once it was out of the cabinet I realized that the insides could be seen so much better without it. So now I'm not sure what to do....

I could use the inlay for architectural interest on the wall, especially since I haven't figured out the art to fill these salvaged frames.


Which is a little bit too bad because hung the other way the lines are similar to the pattern in this mirror that I hung behind the backdoor.

I bought a garden stool to hold drinks (or random toys--the more functional the room, the more everyone starts to use it). 

I still need to shop for an area rug near the backdoor and a better looking garbage can (ideally one with a division for recycling). 

But the styling of the bookcase is coming along (minus the extra toys). 

The wide view of the shelves, which shows how much I still have to do.

I still need to either get rid of the window treatments or replace them, but I am happy with the lamp. So that's positive!

Here's to more progress in week four! Now please go check out the rest of the linking participants here and the 20 Design Pros here.

  3. Looking great Carrie! I have to say, I live the bar'moire without the detail too, you get a much better view of the glassware. Plus, the wood is pretty enough as it is, and like Vel says, you can always put it back later.
