ORC Week 3-Coastal Eclectic Dining Room Update

This has been a productive week…although I am still in the “it is going to get worse before it gets better” phase of decorating. Thank goodness most of our purchases have been delivered and construction of the banquette has begun. I am still waiting on our bleached jute rug and the round poly foam for the back of the banquette. Needless to say it will be a huge stress relief when that arrives. Pretty much everything else can be bought off the shelf at this point.

It is hard to believe it has already been one full week. We have made a lot of progress this week…but don’t have a lot to show for it through pictures. I spent the entire weekend overhauling the garage. If you were following along on my Instagram stories then you likely saw the disaster that was located in the path of all my wood working tools. It was exhausting, but I am happy to report that the garage is more or less cleaned, organized and ready to become a workshop.

Ashley: We are doing it! We are officially attempting the One Room Challenge! We have both been wanting to do this for some time but could never get our schedules or renovation timing just right. But with Rocky moving into her rental home just a few weeks before the challenge began, we knew it was time!

So we are going to tackle her dining room. Its big and bland, but has the most stunning view you could imagine! Because of that view, we knew we didn’t want to pull the interior in a different direction, but play on the ocean views that you will see when you are dining.

Pink, But Not Too Pink Girls Room

Pink, But Not Too Pink Girls Room

I have never been the kind of girl that needs a lot of pink in her life. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against pink. I love the occasion pink accessory. In fact, I have a pink pillow on my couch as I sit here and type. But never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have the most feminine, the most girly, the most “PINK” little girl on earth.

After she was born we knew right away that the nursery I designed for her wasn’t going to cut it. It wasn’t very pink. It was very girly. It was a bit more neutral with pops of green and lavender. It had to go.

So began a constant change! Continue reading “Pink, But Not Too Pink Girls Room”

DIY or BUY Paper Flower Backdrop

DIY or BUY Paper Flower Backdrop

A few years ago for a baby shower, my sister in law and I made a couple large paper flower backdrops. It was a large space with a lot of blank walls. We were not allowed to nail or even tape things to the walls. We had to come up with the something that could lean. I had seen really inspiring paper flowers on Pinterest and I felt like we could do some variation of that. Continue reading “DIY or BUY Paper Flower Backdrop”
