One Room Challenge: Week Four
Delivery! It’s kind of the best word ever, isn’t it? Nothing like a good mail day. We’ve got loot to show.
Before I get to the delivery, let me back up.
You see those green wicker chairs that were in my mom’s pool house.
They are great comfortable wicker chairs and so we thought about repainting them white and reupholstering them.
However, neither my mom nor I wanted to go through the agony of repainting them. I’m a lousy DIY girl at my finest and I’m not at my finest with a baby and toddler following after me currently.
So, when you don’t DIY, you buy. Am I right? Enter a pair of these fab Serena and Lily chairs for replacement.
They are super cute and actually way more comfy then I thought they would be. Win, win.
Where did the old chairs go? Oh just to my own back yard. Ulterior motives much? Thanks mom.
Speaking of delivery, there was another batch of beautiful chairs that came through the mail.
Actually, they arrived about a month ago in preparation for the one room challenge. You see, they sell out FAST! They are sold out again. I ordered as soon as they were back in stock from Overstock and they went back out of stock in like two days. I kid you not. But they are beautiful and I’m very impressed with the quality and price…
The final delivery…this jute rug from Ballard Designs
As a refresher, here is what it replaced…
Because nothing spells pool house like a persian rug that you plucked from your husband’s office in the early 1990’s.
Jute is bringing on the California summer time vibe, such an improvement!
The paint is still underway. The doors are painted and the trim is done but the doors need to be hung before they whitewash the walls and ceiling.
Come back next week when, hopefully the painting will be all done and we can move the furniture into place. Fingers crossed. This is all so crazy fast. Please check out all the other great participants, here.
