ORC Week 6 - New Sofa, Chair and Lamp Makeovers

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Where has the time gone?  I can't believe I set out on this mission 6 weeks ago! 

The One Room Challenge was conceived by the very talented and capable Linda at My Crafty Home Life.  Basically, she assembled a group of 20 bloggers to redecorate a room from start to finish in 6 weeks. Time has really flown by and I can't believe the reveal is next week.  If you'd like to get caught up on everything One Room Challenge that has transpired since the beginning, click here.

Now, how about a little progress report? I've been busy trying to finish up all of the little projects I've been putting off.   Isn't it funny how when you think you're just about finished, the real work begins?

Anyway, I did manage to make over a pair of Chinese Chippendale armchairs to go next to my library table.  

I interviewed many candidates for the job.  Here are the mockups


Anyway, I'm happy with the paint color/fabric combo. I love the yellow velvet next to the Lemon Tree fabric!

What else can I share with you?  I also did a mini-makeover on a thrift store lamp.  Nothing cutting edge, just your basic sand, paint, and add trim to a new shade.  Here's the before.  I loved the shape of this lamp but the finish was in bad shape.


And finally, I got my new sofa in place.  


Happy!!! Next Wednesday is the big reveal.  You've got to come back and see it all finished up!

Make sure you visit the other participants and see what kind of magic they've created this week.

Thanks Kim. That sofa is so beautiful. I love the fabric on it, too. OK, bamboo chair...say no more. White with yellow is sunny and happy. I think this will be your new favorite room. It looks like it might be mine.

I love the lemon velvet on the Chinese Chippendale and the Greek key on the lampshade. Both are wonderful.
