ORC Linking Event … Week 3!

 Linda is shaking up homes everywhere while Design Addicts like me are running around like crazy to complete One Room in Six Weeks!

Click here to see how I earned the "Go Ahead" from Don to tackle yet another project.

Then Week Two.  I didn't post because I was at HighPoint Market and my head was so spinning on a Design High I couldn't go down into my ugly space.  It was a slap back into reality like none you've ever known!

Here's the space … You can feel my pain I am certain!



The previous owners had used this 7' X 11' space as a darkroom and left me with all the chemicals.

First things first, get a hazmat team to come take it all away!

Then I had to empty the room of all the leftovers from my previous office.


While Pipes were being cut and chemicals removed I set about turning Callie's old desk from Pottery Barn into this show stopper … 


Need I remind you that we live in #ProjectDownSize.  I am giving away furniture left and right, so no PURCHASING of furniture is allowed!!


Object 1 that no ORC of mine would be complete without?

 Spray Paint.  

While I have you in the spirit of re-using and repurposing things … 

I have had this Ballard's SeaGrass rug for almost 8 years and nowhere to use it in #ProjectDownSize.

It has taken on a new life as Wall to Wall SeaGrass!


I know you are completely envious of my Built-Ins!

Object 2 that no ORC of mine would be complete without?

Don.

He thinks is hair is still Brown.  We let him.


TA DA … 


Nothing about this post was pretty … but the pretty is coming I promise!

Next week is all about lighting.  If you follow me on IG you've seen the light fixture I snagged.

I know, I'm not buying any new furniture.  I didn't mention anything about lighting!

Next week To Do's:

Walls need to be addressed.
Lighting Hung.
I need a Ceiling.  The Pros will be coming In.
Working on my BookCase/WorkArea/Storage Situation.

Hope you are checking out all the other Linking Participants!

Doing my part …

More HPMKT2014 Inspiration … and what came home!

All those who share my love for animal print and hides … 
Let me put your mind at ease.
It is still hot.


And I would like to say, that while the "hide" has been a trend of late … it is classic … Hides and Animal patterns have been used in Interior Design Forever.  So no fear of it growing old.  It is truly a look I will never tire of.

HPMKT2014 showed me a few new twists that I think you will like!


"Skins" on everything! This is a lamp Base.


Leather. Wood. Brass.





Yep.  Something for Everyone … 


But back to my preference … 
Emerald with Brass Nailheads.


Turquoise with Chrome Nailheads.


And the Pièce de Résistance … 
Zebra and Chrome.  Bring It Home!


So I didn't bring the Chair home … but found this 
Hide Pillow that looks like a Tiara to me.

And she came home.
And she's happy on my Orange Hide Chair!!



With Chrome NailHeads … by the way!!
