One Room Challenge, Week Five: better stop procrastinating

The One Room Challenge is in Week Five already!



Time flies when you don't even start till Week Three.  (See Week Three and Four.)

This week I did three things.

Thing one: paint the bombe side tables from black to Benjamin Moore's Hale Navy.



Thing two: yarn-bomb George the longhorn steer.  George has been through a few moves, and cardboard is not the most sturdy of materials.  I had to get very creative with a stapler, some shims and tape.  I feel that George could probably use one more stripe of color but I am afraid to disassemble him.


Thing three: I hung the curtains.  There is still a bit of work left to be done on that project.


I still need to make pillows.  This entails using my sewing machine for the first time.  I think I can, I think I can....

  3. George looks good with his horn hat. You know, I've been thinking I need to repaint the glass door from black to navy--but I think that would give me a hert attck. So, me, no, but you--good call.

    1. Just plain white ones for the master bedroom, but they need to be lengthened. (Still debating on the guest bedroom).

  5. Love that side table- looks beautiful. I just LOVE that color. I feel like I need to paint something in my house that color. I see it a lot and every time, I'm in love with it. Great work this week. Good luck with the final week!
