Everything is still in progress in the bedroom. This week is all about the furniture.
(We LOVE having this corner of our bedroom back from the dogs!)
The townhouse we rented a few months ago was unfurnished. We brought a few things up from the house, but we had to turn to Craigslist for the rest, and we scored big time. I saw a sectional sofa from the 50s in decent condition…for only $120(!) and contacted the seller immediately. She offered more of the furniture from her mother’s house, including two mid-century chairs (which I immediately agreed to buy for another $20), and two end tables. I declined the two end tables, but her mother was sentimental about the furniture and really wanted everything to stay together, so we agreed to buy those as well. And I am so glad we did because they make the perfect nightstands.
The color isn’t good for our house though, it’s a dark red and all of the wood in our house is very tan with orange undertones. I was hoping to refinish them for the challenge, but there just wasn’t enough time.
Almost everything in here was purchased for our rental, and it all just worked perfectly for the bedroom. The floor lamp was from Goodwill for only $20. The bookshelf was from there too for only $5, as was the painting above the chair for another $5. The painting is an original, painted on a course woven fabric. I couldn’t get over how the colors matched perfectly. The cream stripe is the same as the walls, and the pink is the same pink the closets are painted in.
The Hubs also surprised me with new bed linens! The bed is the same one we got for last spring’s One Room Challenge, it could use a fresh coat of rub-n-buff.
Window coverings were supposed to be hung, but we misplaced all of the curtain rod hardware in one of the moves. We have all the rods, just nothing to hang them on. 🤦
Still a long way to go and less than one week left…
