One Room Challenge – Week 3 – Shopping

It’s been a week of hardly any progress.  Rain, rain, and more rain has impeded any outside projects.  Not to mention, we are in the process of helping my parents purchase a home here in Houston.  I secretly think John is all about this idea so I can throw their house into chaos with DIY projects and leave our house alone.  Seriously John…I plan on doing both at the same time!

I was able to get one of these convex mirrors painted using European Gold Rub-N-Buff.  Well sort of…because if you look close enough, you’ll can see the gold paint on the black part.  OOPS!

IMG_4359I’ll give more details on that later.  I was able to get some shopping and ordering done for other things.

I ordered the curtain rods and stand-offs, and I just ran across the rings on sale.  Wahoo!  But, I’m not sure how many I need.  Hmmm….gonna need to research that some.

I also purchased the duvet that I mentioned in my last post.  While I was at Biscuit Home, I inquired about the green wall they had in the store to use on the armoire.  It is Benjamin Moore Alligator Alley.  Now that I have that, as well as the color of the walls chosen (BM Gray Owl), I’ll make a trip to the paint store.

I am still on the hunt for the perfect nightstands.  Like anyone else, you can find the perfect nightstands easily.  It’s all about the cost of the nightstands, right?

Now that half of the time is gone in this challenge, I have to get it together and get some actual work done.  It is still a bummer that the mattress that started this whole adventure, may not arrive in time.  BOO HOO!

Hope you guys have a great week!

She is growing like a weed, and she is into EVERYTHING!   I won’t bore you with tons of cute puppy pictures, because we have Pinterest and YouTube for that.

Since her size changes on a daily basis, I’ll slip in a pic here and there so you can watch the pony grow!

Bayou City Art Festival 2014

My recent interest in art motivated me to attend the BCAF this year.  John and I walked the entire festival in about an hour, which is probably not something to broadcast.  However, like shopping, I only stop and look when something grabs my eye.  The “art” mainly consists of interior and exterior sculptures, wall art of every kind, and jewelry.  I picked up a few gifts, and I collected business cards from the artists that really caught my eye.
