It's only week two of the One Room Challenge and I'm already exhausted. I guess I need to put on my big girl pants and get right over it cause I still have a LOT to do in my guest room. My husband and I (really my husband) worked like a dog to do all of the crown molding and baseboards this weekend. He had such a hard time with the angles since, once again, nothing is square. Somehow (with wood filler, spackle, caulk, and paint) he managed to make it look a-mazing. And he built the window benches. They still need a bit more trimming out but I'm super impressed with his carpentry skills right now. Remember what it looked like before (sorry for my absolute crap photography skills)?
That space is where the fireplace will go. We bought it two houses ago and we were going to get rid of it, but this seemed like the perfect spot for it. It just needs a bit of tweaking, which will be the subject of one of my posts. Next up is the carpet and wallpaper. They're both scheduled so unless all hell breaks loose next week will be a big one. In the meantime I've got something semi cheap and cheerful planned for window treatments that I'm hoping to get started on this weekend. Crossing my fingers that it will look as good as it does in my head. Now I'm off to see how all the other linking participants are doing with their rooms. Don't forget to see what the varsity team of ORCers are doing. Ridiculous goodness.
