ORC – WEEK FOUR – OLD, NEW, BORROWED AND BLUE

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE – LINKING EVENT – WEEK 4

ORC-LP-250x183

WEEK 4

THIS WEEK WAS A FUN ONE. We are in the home stretch and nothing pulls a room together MORE than fabrics and rugs…texture and color. Especially because Cooper is going more “MINIMALISTIC”…the pops of color have more of an impact than they might have in his old room.

COOPER'S BED - SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING BORROWED AND SOMETHING(S) BLUE!

SOMETHING OLD

RUGS – The rugs in Cooper’s room are both “old”. The Brown Dhrurrie was as you might remember in MY room. After what felt like weeks of having new rugs shipped here, we tried MY rug to get a sense of the color and Cooper fell in love with it.  The small “oriental rug” next to his bed had been in my Husband’s office…

SOMETHING(S) NEW

THE ACCENT TABLEs on either side of Coops bed are from TARGET. As always , we got a great deal…suggestion – if you order online there is always a promo going on and you will ALWAYS save at the very least 15% by entering a code at checkout. Cooper assembled one and I did the other…it was fun! Mine is one the right and Coops on the left…

ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT THOSE WINDOW TREATMENTS WAS THAT THERE WAS NO FABRIC CUTTING, SO AFTER I DID THE MAKEOVER OF PHOEBE’S BEDROOM AND THESE WERE NO LONGER NEEDED….I SIMPLY REMOVED THE FABRIC, WASHED IT AND MADE COOPER SOME NEW SHAMS!

THINGS, THE PLACE WHERE WE USED TO TAKE THE KIDS TRICK OR TREATING WHEN
THEY WERE LITTLE…AND HE SENT ME A PHOTO OF A LITTLE BOY IN A “TIGGER”
COSTUME…AND HE SAID
“IT IS LIKE SEEING MYSELF THE WAY I WAS NOT SO VERY LONG

AGO….” I LOVE THAT BOY!!!!

  1. Wow, you’ve made so much progress already. It looks almost done. I’m nowhere near “done” with my kitchen. But seeing your room gave me the motivation to step it up next week. Can’t wait to see the final result. Karolina

  2. I love how much fun you and Cooper are having on your ORC. I am doing a bathroom with my daughter (#motherdaughterorc) and it is fun to shop and make decisions together with her more in the lead this time 🙂
    And I am big believer in shopping the house, the fabric stash and ‘on loan” art and such. can’t wait to see the reveal and I really want that gray striped quilt!!!

    1. Thank you Marcie!
      The house…is a great “store” isn’t it? and the price is certainly right!!!

      Cannot wait to see your mother-daughter bathroom makeover!!! I know my daughter will be jealous as she has always had to share her bathroom with her two brothers!

      good luck!

Thank you for visiting My Old Country House...I’d love to hear what you thinking. Let me know in the comments. And Have a great Day!
