Week 3 - One Room Challenge - DIY-ing + Potential TV Stand

Guys, I would be lying if I said I wasn't stressing about the ORC...

On Monday my dad and I will be heading up to Milton to pick up the trim and moulding Metrie has graciously given us for this challenge. And I am hopeful that once we start to hang the trim, the space will come together quickly...wishful thinking?

For this space, I don't feel as though I need to purchase too much new stuff. I have a MILLION pillows to choose from and some artwork and accessories that will lend themselves nicely to this new space. One thing I have been on the hunt for is a new TV stand. This morning I was perusing my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore and found exactly what I was envisioning (rare!). I took the measurements, since the TV wall is sloped and this buffet was much taller than my ikea unit, I was pretty doubtful it would fit, BUT IT DID! The only problem is now I have to wait until Monday for them to reopen and hope that it is still there. Fingers are crossed!

See how pretty?

I am also experimenting with a DIY wall sconce kit that I picked up at Michaels this week. I'm struggling to make it look pretty and not like a Pinterest fail. The lamp shad is a metal cage that I plan to spray white, and string with wooden beads and then spray the entire thing white again. Seems pretty easy and basic, but it's looking a little messy at the moment. The ingredients are below, but the step by step directions are heading back to the drawing board. I am determined this will work, because it looks fab in my mind, but we shall see!

I'm looking forward to heading into week 4 and hopefully sharing some trim pics and doing some paint tester pots!
