One Room Challenge- Week 3

One Room Challenge | October 19, 2016

Last week Chris,The Taskmaster, spent a few days putting up all our molding and trim from Metrie.  It was so fun to see the progress each day.


I can’t tell you how much it adds to the space. After it was all up I had it painted in Farrow and Ball’s All White.


I have to admit I was a little nervous to do such a bright white but I really love how it turned out.  We also laid out our newBirmingham Black Indoor/Outdoor Rug from Dash & Albert.

My kids immediately grabbed the rod it came rolled in and started to be ninjas! I have always always loved the Birmingham rug. It’s classic, modern and bold plus this one is an indoor/outdoor option which makes it great for Dining Room!
One of the biggest decisions for the space was choosing the head chairs for the table.
For the head chairs I really wanted something with a slipcovered look.  You know how there are some types of furniture that always pull on your heartstrings? That is how I feel about slipcovered furniture. I ended up choosing the Sierra Arm Chair pair from Joss & Main.


 There were delivered last week and I love them.  They are a perfect greige tone. I love how they contrast with the white walls.


They are also the perfect dimensions for the dining table. I love when an armchair can still slide easily under and out of the dining table.

Another key part of this space is a shelf to put along the back wall.  The shelves are going to act as a dish cabinet for my extra serving pieces but also need to store all the art supplies for the “craft room” portion of this space.  I wanted to bring in some wood shelves to add some warmth to the space because the white walls can com off cold.  These are the options I considered.


I really loved the Bookcase with the ladder and 4 drawers but I didn’t have enough room for the ladder with my table and chairs. So I ended up going with the Industrial Bookcase with handles and rail. I think it’s really pretty and will offer up tons of storage it this space which I really need!
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing the dining table I found! I’m in love with it!!
