One Room Challenge - Week 6/The Finale + 2 days but who's counting...


I may have made ORC history as the first person to NOT finish.

I will wear that badge with honor because I got SOOOOO much done that I never would have in such a short period of time had I NOT participated in this series linky party.

Linda, I owe ya one!

I am very happy with what I got done and will post an update when its done done.

Without further adieu...

Full disclaimer:

In order to post before the link expired, I had to #1, take pics at night, so the lighting is off and #2, take pics w/o everything done.

But we don't fake the funk over here at SCB.  We keeps it real.  And really, I didn't get all my shit done.  But I'm cool with that.  I think I did get some really kick ass stuff done so it all evens out in my book.



A few of the items I worked on this week was the fitted sheet/cover that matches the upholstery.  And the bolster and big pillows in back that match the roman shade.  

My first time sewing...two bolster pillows with invisible zippers and two 30x30 pillows with regular zippers.
Yep, I pretty much feel like this...

I originally planned to paint this desk but ultimately decided that I already had enough painted furniture.
So I decided to strip it.
Late excuse #1.

Grrr...hate that flash blurb.

I had originally planned to send these chairs out to the reupholster.  
But I kinda got cold feet.
My guy stopped reupholstering and I got a referral but their review wasn't so great.

So I decided to do them myself.

Like, really?  I've never upholstered anything in my life.  
Wait thats a lie.  I made Peanut's headboard and the daybed.  But a chair, never.

It was a huge time drain just removing the original upholstery.

Its coming along but just not quick enough.  Here what it looks like today.
Late excuse #2.

And there is the untouched chair.
And my messy dining room.
And a displaced billy bookcase.

And a photobomb kitty.

Rug is from Homegoods.
They are selling the same rug on RugsUSA but its out of stock in all sizes in this color way.

And here are the gratuitous kitty shots.  Because, lets be real.  Its their world, we just live in it.

Thank you all for following, checking me out every week, your sweet comments over the past 6 weeks.  

Stayed tuned for updates!!!


  1. You did a fantastic job. 72 people linked up on week one, so your first statement is not true. I will be doing a 'what do they look like now' link up in January. As we know, many people will make changes to their rooms over the months and years to come. I can't wait to see those chairs finished. So impressive.

    1. Linda, thats a great idea!! Can't wait to see everyone's rooms!

      I did notice the number of link ups for this last one was short of 72. I'm really happy with what I was able to get done. The motivation was exactly what I needed, no regrets here. :)

  2. Well even though you didn't finish [I didn't finish my first one either]....what you have accomplished is wonderful. Love the changes and of course the kitty is adorb:)

    1. Really, Sherry? At first I felt kinda of like "Ugh" but overall I very happy with what I DID get done. That Ikea hack was in my head for MONTHS before I pulled the trigger.

  3. Ha, no worries. You aren't the first for sure. :) I think you've done so much and I love your Kramer reference. That desk is killer and your room is looking great! New follower!

  4. It looks pretty damn good for not done!! I love your colors and fabric...well {almost} done!!

  5. Whether you are done are not, your room has come a long way and you just have a few things to finnish up! I definitely think it was a good choice to not paint the desk and just strip it down. Also loving the pink with the grey. Way to go! Can't wait to see final final pictures :)
