Hello from Week THREE of the One Room Challenge! If you are new, you can catch up on my plans to re-work our Living Room/Breakfast Nook here and here. Wow, here we are at the halfway point, and geez I might need to kick it up a notch. A little progress was made this week, but not nearly what I had planned on. My view for the past 3 days has looked like the below photo. I swear that I have the immune system of a gnat and get any and every stomach bug that I come into contact with. THE.WORST.! be gone please be gone! Needless to say, my to-do list is virtually where I left you last week. wah. wah.
The drapes came back from the seamstress and are now three separate panels to work with. Still in love with them.
This week we are moving on to curtain rods, focal wall install, and (if the hubs is feeling nice ambitious) cornice boxes for the breakfast area. I am sort of torn on the living room rods though…so weigh in. I originally thought that I wanted to do a galvanized pipe DIY rod that I would just spray antique gold. I love that this option would be a statement (should I use the 1” pipe) and it would also be sturdy enough to hold the bad boys above, all while adding an unexpected rustic element to the room. The other part of me just wants to spray an old rod gold and call it a day. Thoughts?

Bless your heart! I hope you are feeling much better! Everything looks fantastic! I love the drapes and I can't wait to see them hung. I love the idea of the gold pipes but I think either would look great! You know I'm dying over those gorgeous chairs!

Those chairs/table were one of my first major "finds" ever! Can't wait for you guys to come over and check it all out once it's done 🙂

What awful timing for a stomach bug! You seem to have accomplished a bit though. By the way, your fabric is wonderful, I can't wait to see those drapes in place.
Thanks Kathleen! I'm kind of obsessed with the fabric too….score of the century on those drapes!

I actually love that type of rod. Easy, yet lends a great industrial vibe.

Oh good! I decided to go with it and had it all cut tonight…fingers crossed on a smooth DIY! xo

Love the design for the cornices. I like the idea of the pipes too, just make sure you don't go too far without a center support…I don't know how wide your window is so you may not even need one. Cant wait to see what you decide!

So they are the rod needed to be 88' long and I went ahead and had him cut it into 44' inch sections with a connector, etc…esp since the drapes are so heavy, I thought that the extra support was a must. I'm glad you said that though, so I know that I'm not crazy. Thanks E! xo

Your plan is sooooo pretty. And I gasped when I saw the chair with the check — to.die. The idea of the pipe rods is fantastic, I say keep going with it. I love the unexpected.

Wow, for a sick week you got a ton accomplished! Those drapes are gorgeous! I did the galvanized pipe rods in my sons room for the last ORC (but left them silver)…love them gold! Nice choice leaving the fireplace wall darker!
