~One Room Challenge week 3~

Week 3 of the ORC!

Today is all about the new goodies that are going into the room.

I bought this chandelier but am still unsure if I will leave it as is, or paint it black, or maybe white, or maybe a darker wood tone.
Or, maybe it won't look good at all and I'll be scrambling at the last minute to find something else.
I got this photo enlarged in a huge size 55x39.
I had trouble finding a company that would print that big, but then I came across MegaPrint and all my dreams came true.  The price for this size was around $100, which I say is a steal for this big. I was even able to call the company and describe the look I was after and discuss different options for the material to use. It should arrive in about a week and then off to the framers where they will mount it to a backer board, and put it in my frame for me. That takes another week, so it will be cutting it close for sure!
I found a super inexpensive frame that I am hoping doesn't look super inexpensive when all is said and done. It's the Bjorksta, and yes, I bet you guessed it's from Ikea.

I should just call this my Ikea room, because the majority of it is from there.
The other part from All Modern, with bits and pieces of TJ Maxx and thrift
 shop thrown in.

I am working on putting in new baseboard trim right now. Would you believe that we've lived for 10 years with that room only having baseboard trim on half the room?

I am also working on sanding down some of the water stains on the cedar in the skylights.

Not much to show but lots to do! 
Week four promises to be a bit more exciting!
