one room challenge: week three

It's been a busy week! Add on top of that a One Room Challenge and... well, what's my name?

Originally, I wasn't going to paint. The more I tried to pull fabrics and brainstorm ideas, the more I realized paint needed to happen.

Filtered Shade is the winner! I'm a huge fan of Valspar and their GRAYS are fabulous. I used Ultra 2000 (y'all, $22 a gallon) and got beautiful, perfect, one-coat coverage. Hello!

On to fabrics!

If you've been following along on instagram (@shopemilyco), you've seen this picture before. The top two will be curtains, the stripe will be shams, and the bottom is the bed skirt.

Now my dilemma is how to combine the top two. I'm limited to just 18" of the toile (it was in the remnant pile... super cheap). I think a pattern-block is the way to go. Perhaps like some of these?

And painting this medical chest for a nightstand...

And finding lamps. I'm thinking something like this, maybe? We'll see what's out there...

Tune in next week to see how it's all coming together!!!! And don't forget to see what everyone else is up to... prepare yourself for the fabulousness!!!
