One Room Challenge: Week Three

Week Three.

(ORC, hosted by Linda at

Calling It Home


More like Weak to See.

Not a ton of pretty progress to feast your eyes upon this week.


The rug

did come in, and I'm fairly pleased with it. The colors are slightly different than they appeared in the product image - more purply-lilac than the pinky-lilac I was aiming for. Then again, it could be that the sweet, mauve color currently on the walls is giving the rug the heebs.

For a wool rug, in the odd size I needed, and the under $300 clams category, it'll work just fine. It also offers such a nice, plush contrast to my (


, haven't been vacuumed/mopped in over two weeks) hardwoods.

No judging.

 In other news....Our stuff arrived from Brazil - woo hoo!  We're still up to our ears in unpacked boxes.   Progress is sloooooow with three Little People in the mix.


My old changing table made it through Giese customs.  Sweet. 

 I have big, shiny plans for her - hope you'll approve.

And, that's about it.  I really,


gotta get the walls painted.  I don't mind painting, and the three itty walls should be easy to knock out, it's just a matter of getting the ball rolling.

Thus, the call of the ORC.
