All in Decorating
Week 3, of the ORC!
Half way through the challenge
Dear One Room Challenge Diary,
It has been made clear to me this week that my dining room project is going way over budget. It has not been made clear to my husband…
Oversized prints of a beach, sitting in a massive frame and taking over a wall has been a trend for years now.
So apparently I like dropping statements like “We’re going to have our dining room furnished for Thanksgiving!” to the entire world on the internet and then going silent just before the holidays roll around.
One piece of advice I learned with this bathroom: if you are using gray in a room, you need other warm colors to liven it up.
In our previous 1970s home, we pulled out the chandelier from our unused dining room and turned the room into a playroom for our 4 little ones. It worked out so well!
Who doesn’t love a good dupe? Today I’m showing off some dynamic duos and terrific trios that are all quite similar, but with prices that are decidedly different.
I was so excited when we built our home to make my pantry my dream pantry!
I am refreshing our bar area just in time for the holidays!
Last year over Christmas we had just moved into our home. Decorating felt crazy when we had barely unpacked. I bought a faux garland from Costco right after Thanksgiving to liven the house up. Gosh it was pretty. I had it around my stairs and above my fireplace. Well thanks to all the heat from the fireplace and the sunlight that tends to drench our stairs, it was dried and crispy to the touch 2 weeks later. I tried misting, but it was so dead and depressing- I tossed it just before Christmas. Of course some homes will do better than others, but this year I am going faux!
Perhaps you’re like us, and you don’t have an actual office in your home. We don’t have the need for a full separate office- but we did need a dedicated space to work for small amounts of time, while still being centrally located with the children. I know kitchen desks are supposedly “outdated”, but for us it was exactly what we wanted!
