Welcome back to day three of the One Room, Three Ways series. This was so much fun for me, although I have to admit I will sleep well tonight.
This is where we left off on day two. There was a definite red, white and blue color scheme. And, I thank you so much for all the sweet comments. They really made my day. You are the best. Truly.
For day three, I decided to throw all the rules out the window – no matching, no color scheme, no stress. Anything goes is my motto today. I think this might be my favorite room, although I may have to save my pennies for some more ikat fabric, because I miss the curtains.
I took everything out of the room again, except for the sofa, bench and artwork. I scooched the sofa down the wall a bit, and brought in a floor lamp that my mother gave me, because she wasn’t using it anymore. You can read about how I wrote on the lampshade with a sharpie here. Another random piece of artwork was added to the wall above the sofa. The plant was put into a wicker basket and placed by the window. I spent $15 on fabric to make some new pillow covers, and grabbed a few more pillows from around the house.
I brought back the matching armchairs and ottoman from day one. I had the rug in a closet. I purchased it at a yard sale last year and never had a place for it, but it worked perfectly here. A hooked rug was hung on the wall.
A framed crewel embroidery was hung on the coat rack … remember … anything goes.
If you give this girl a budget, she will spend every penny. We mainly shopped our homes, but we had a $100 budget over the three days. I used $22 on day two, so according to my calculations I had $78 left to spend. I spent $50 on this round mahogany table. I works perfectly here. The lamp is from the master bedroom. I changed out the shade to an embroidered one I had on another lamp.
I spent $10 on flowers and I still have $3 leftover. I’m sure I can find something at the weekend yard sales.
This room really feels casual and comfortable to me, and I like that feeling.
