One Room Challenge week 4-entryway and curtains

It's time for another One Room Challenge update!  This week the mirror and area rug for the entryway were delivered, I hung the shades and curtains and finished a new project that wasn't on my original to-do list.

I also have some news to share from Linda the creator of the ORC.  Linda extended the challenge for an extra week due to the natural disasters (hurricanes and wildfires) that lead up to or occurred during the challenge.  My heart goes out to everyone affected by them.

Shipments and scheduled work have been delayed or canceled altogether for many designers so it makes sense for the extra week.  The new reveal date for the designers will be November 15th  and the new reveal date for the guest participants (me) will be November 16th so mark your calendars.

In case you are stopping by for the first time here is my design plan that I am working on.   If you'd like to catch up from the beginning you can do so here:  Week 1/      Week 2/      Week 3     Now on to week 4........

I decided this week to add wainscoting to our tiny vestibule.  This tiny area is the landing strip for all coats, shoes, hats and other stuff.  It is also the first area you see upon entering our home. A quick trip to LOWES, a few nails and more paint and I was done. I love the way it turned out and I can't wait to show you in the reveal.




The new roller shades are a game changer for this room, they add a warm texture and have a light filtering back and offers some privacy.  When the lights are on at night you can see some shadows so for total privacy I hung curtain panels on the windows.  Our family room faces the street so I don't want anyone seeing me in my pj's and hair curlers sitting on my new Sofa 


The curtains I hung are faux silk curtains that I purchased a few years ago.  I think they are discontinued, but I managed to find a few that are similar.

Have you seen the new modern home line launched from Target called Project 62?  Even though my style isn't sleek and modern, I do love some of the pieces.  I purchased this round wall mirror for the entryway.

The area rug for the entryway arrived this week and I couldn't be happier!  


I ordered the Gracie Oaks Roth Jute Handwoven Rug from Wayfair.  It is a 4' round natural woven rug.  I love the feel of this rug and the simple beauty it brings to the space.  Here is the direct link to the rug.  I am standing on mine in the picture above.






Finding the perfect sofa for a room is no easy task.  A lot of research online, measuring, thinking and re-thinking before I purchased this one by Birch Lane. During my search, I put together a list of affordable sofas that I will be sharing in an upcoming post.  I fell head over heels for this sofa and I can't wait for it to be delivered!  




Well, that's it for me for this week.  Don't forget to check in on the progress of the other Guest Participants.
