Thanks for returning for week two of the six week One Room Challenge, where I am redecorating my daughter, Tabitha’s, room and plant ledge. What, don’t your children have plant ledges? Please click to see the 20 participants and many more linking participants who are investing tons of time into making beautiful rooms and interesting blogs. You can catch up on my first, second, third , and fourth ORC’s and last week’s Week 1 of this ORC.
We’ve been busy shopping this week. Normally I go everywhere and exhaust many sources before I make purchases for my ORC’s, but this time around I have a new job that keeps me wonderfully busy, so I’m streamlining. I’m picking one place to shop for each item we need and picking the best option (or really letting Tabitha pick the best option) from that source. We needed:
All White Bedding. The source I selected was Target (budget friendly and close to home.) Tabitha’s options:
I was really surprised how many all white options they had. Any guesses which one she picked?
Next stop was Tuesday Morning, my go-to for ready made curtains that I then re-make into other things. Tabitha’s windows face south, so she gets lots of light. Plus the plant ledge doesn’t have a vent so it gets hot. We need some heavy duty thermal, blackout lined shades in there. I’m going to start with one of these gray window panels options and make them into shades:
Any thoughts on which one she picked? I think I should mention that I was shopping for these items without her. I just sent her these photos, and she made selections from the comfort of our home, probably while watching Gray’s Anatomy reruns. I did all the leg work. Maybe I should be charging her more per hour. 😉
We also bought this white mosquito net canopy from Amazon:
We are narrowing down the paint color for the walls and ceiling. I think it might end up being Benjamin Moore HC-171 Wickham Gray. It’s a great neutral gray. I’ve used this color several times, but the name always makes me think of Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice and the less than stellar George Wickham. I’d rather paint Tabitha’s room Mr. Darcy Gray, but I don’t think that’s an option.
I’ve met with several contractors about enclosing the plant ledge, and I’m just waiting to hear back and get that started. I’m going to keep shopping and getting little items taken care of in the meantime. Happy week to all!
