As I am writing this post I am getting more nervous than ever, and I try to keep calm staring at my fall centrepiece on my coffee table that I recently DIY-ed and which I find to have such a calming effect on me. Even though I am almost done with all big tasks, such as painting, refinishing the floors, applying the stencil in feature walls, altering and installing the roller shades, altering the existing rug etc I am quite nervous about how my photos would turn out as the big day is approaching.
If you are new here, thanks so much for checking out my Studio Office Space Design On a Budget project. You can check my first , second post, third and fourth one related to this project if you’d like to see or get reminded what I started with when I entered the One Room Challenge event and the progress thereafter.
My custom made mirror arrived and I am happy how it turned out. I wanted a huge round shape mirror but I couldn’t find the size I was looking for; thus, I ordered a custom made one. It is now hanging on the wall and I am loving it.
I wanted a completely different light fixture than the one in the picture, but it was expensive and I could not afford so I opted for this one which I purchased the other day and it is waiting for install.
I also made some pillow covers and they turned pretty nice.
I had a rug which was unused for quite some time and since it was a good quality I somehow resisted to give it away. I wanted to give this rug another chance so I altered it a bit so I could use it for this project.
I cut the rug in a cowhide shape and finished the edges in black.
So everything is pretty much finished and now I need to do some styling and then the photoshoot which I find to be the most challenging part of all.
Just a small recap about the ORC event:
The One Room Challenge is a 6 week room makeover challenge for designers and bloggers In North America, all started by Linda from Call It Home blog. There are 2 sides of this event. One side being the 20 selected designers competing for the win. On the other side, there are hundreds guest participants like myself. At the end of the 6 weeks, the editors of Better Homes & Gardens will select 2 guest participants to be FEATURED DESIGNERS in the 2019 Spring ORC challenge! All featured designers and most of the guest participants work with various sponsors. I am not a lucky one to have a sponsor!
