It gets worse before it gets better right? If you have ever done a room makeover on a time crunch then you know that to be true.
This week I’m talking One Room Challenge™ fabric options. I finally made my decisions and have my fabric ready to go.
First, let’s talk paint…
Before I get to the fabric details I have to tell you about the not so fun part. Painting this space is going to take forever. I tried using the sprayer I used to paint my dining table but because I have to water down the paint it is just absorbing into the plywood walls like crazy. I spent a few hours yesterday and still only have one wall partially done. It is also taking longer because of the exposed studs.
I’m going back at it today with high hopes though. I’m going to try to roll on the paint hoping that because it isn’t watered down it will not absorb into the wood so much. I decided since the entire room will be white, to use straight primer. It’s cheaper and will cover all of the black ink stamps on any of the wood.
Back to the fun part. I shared with you in my week 2 update that I was waiting for some blankets to be delivered. I wanted to choose the coordinating fabrics after they arrived.
As you can see from my inspiration photos, one thing I love most was the black and white buffalo check. I decided for my space that I wanted to go with the tan and white buffalo check because it would look best with my sofa’s I already owned.
I was able to find that buffalo check fabric at IKEA this past weekend and I was thrilled. The other fabrics I already had in my stash. I usually buy fabrics a few yards at a time if I see something that I love and is neutral enough to go with many other patterns. I will also be using drop cloths for a surprise project my sister and I came up with. Still have to figure out how to make it work.
Mixing fabrics is one of my favorite decorating and design elements. Picking pattern size and prints that work well together can be tricky but once you lay out a winning combination you know it!
What I really loved from my inspiration photos were the white walls, leather, and the contrast of textures. I am happy with how this shed makeover is coming along but there is still so much to do at this halfway point.
Still to complete…
Paint, sew pillows, recover the ottoman, create the serving area, decided on plants and pots for the porch, build a bigger shelf for under the TV, and much MORE!
