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?


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 …

Making The World More Beautiful. One Room at a Time.
