Did I literally just write week 5 of 6? Already? It’s crunch time here on the ORC with just one week to go!! Yikes! I’m not ready! 🙂
In case you missed the progress of my Small Swanky Sitting Room makeover, you can check them out here.
So what did I get done this past week? Should I start with the good news or the bad news? Well there isn’t any really bad news, just a bunch of waiting, hoping and praying
My end table came in. Originally I planned on a set of nesting tables, but they were not going to get here in time, so I ended up purchasing this round wire table from Target. It is a great scale for the space, and I really like the light airy feel.
End Table In Place
I started to style my bookcase, but I have to go shopping for a few more accents. I scored a set of 24 Illustrated History of the World books for just $20! (not shown) and my bust came in! This one of Aphrodite. I have always wanted one – strictly as a decorative piece.
You will see which color of the silk leopard prints I chose during next week’s big reveal. Is it the blue or the cream leopard? I’m not telling just yet 🙂 You will have to come back next week to find out
Remember the feathers I showed you last week? I began working on my DIY project using them.
Can you guess what it is? If you can’t tell you will hopefully see it in all its glory on reveal day. I actually didn’t order enough feathers, so hopefully my new order arrives in time. I will also be doing a tutorial here on the blog very soon (if it comes out looking good. It is my first time working with feathers).
My beloved London Maps were shipped today, so there is hope that they will arrive by next week. They arrive via freight, so it is not really a guarantee. I won’t be able to relax until I see them here in one piece (well six pieces. Lol)
There is so much still left to be done and so I am really nervous:
Hanging draperies and art
Shopping for lamps and accessories
Finish styling the bookcase and the rest of the room
Maybe spruce up the foyer which is quite visible from the sitting room
Finish DIY projects (and there are a few)
Shoot room (hopefully with a professional photographer)
At least the room is slowly taking shape.
Maybe my lucky dragon has something to do with it? Nah. Just kidding 🙂
