One Room Challenge Week Two


Oh boy here we go!  Of course I need “ my partner in crime” to handle the heavy work (or should I say the real work).  My husband got the great idea to “hand scrape” our floors which is a back breaking excercise.  So the floors are stained the same color as we (I mean Steve) stained the floors in the other guest bedroom here http://roughluxeperspective.blogspot.com/2013/07/guest-bedroom-update.html


The walls are painted Benjamin Moore Manchester Tan at 50%
MANCHESTER TAN Benjamin Moore
The trim does not need to be painted fortunately it is still in good shape having been painted a few years back.
I can’t really do an inspiration board because I am using primarily things I have.  Here are a few things I will be incorporating to give you a general feel for the room.

, I am planning to use a this old pier one wicker chair that resided in my daughter’s room (boy does this room need an update as well) in lieu of the chair above.  Remember I am shopping my own house!  I haven’t decided if I am going to paint it black or a muddy brown (any suggestions are welcome!)

I have another wicker chair that is similar from Palecek (currently green) that I will paint in the same color and use on either side of an 18th chest. I am going to have the cushions made up in the same flax linen that the curtains will be constructed of. That’s about it for this week!

If this is your first visit the One Room Challenge, is organized by Linda at Calling It Home, where 20 bloggers made up of Professional Designers, Interior Design aficionados, and Diy'ers share the transformation of a room from start to finish. Over the course of six Wednesday's we write about our progress. Stop by Linda’s blog to see what everyone else is is up to!

  5. I love your ideas for your guest room, and think the BM Manchester Tan is a beautiful color. I may sound stupid, but please explain what you mean by using the color at 50%? Is that half the color recipe added to the base? Thanks!

  8. You have some really great pieces to use in your space! And your husband's a keeper - not only did he do the work on the floors but he's the one who suggested it? Lucky girl!

  10. looking great i love the idea of painting the wicker chairs the same - how about that grey muddy wash like the one in the inspiration photo? I love that! like paint it a taupe or greige and then put a very light white wash on it?

  12. Hi Cindy! I am dying to redo the floors in our house; they just weren't right the first time around. Lucky you that Steve will do it. I love your mood board; the color palette is so me.

  15. I think black would be easier to do and any furniture painted in black can go anywhere! Good luck dear!
