ORC Week 3 – Travel Art Gallery Wall + More

Thursday, April 21, 2016

I can’t believe we are already halfway through the challenge! I’m definitely starting to stress about a few items arriving in time, but other than that, I think I’m making good progress. My biggest accomplishment for the week was hanging the gallery wall. I’m still planning to change out a couple of the pictures, but other than that, this project is done and I’m so happy with how it turned out.


I’m so excited to finally have a place to display some of the art I’ve collected over the years. About half of the prints I bought while traveling and the rest are from thrift stores or Etsy.



In other news, my dressers were delivered on Tuesday. I’m so excited to finally have a second dresser in the room. I’ve only put one of them together so far, but I’m pretty pleased with the quality. The drawers are kind of small inside, but I knew that from the reviews. I still need to add the knobs, but I want to buy different ones first. The ones that came with the dresser are just plain white wood ones.



This week I also decided to change up my plan a bit. I was originally planning to move the hamper in the closet and add a full-length mirror in its place. However, I haven’t been able to find a mirror I like in the right size for the space and having the hamper right outside the master bathroom is really handy, so I’ve decided to scratch the mirror idea and stick with the hamper. Although, I’ll be replacing the current hamper with this laundry basket from At Home. 


By next week I hope to have the chaise lounge ordered (I think I found the one I want), the second dresser put together plus new knobs for both, fabric for the throw pillows ordered, and the rest of the artwork picked out. I’m being kind of indecisive about what else I want to hang, but I need to get it sorted out soon!
Let’s take a look at the updated to-do list:
Paint Walls
Buy Bed
New Nightstands
Buy/Hang New Curtains
New Dressers

Buy Chaise Lounge
Hang Gallery Wall Above Bed
Hang Additional Artwork
Add Full-Length Mirror – remove
Replace Laundry Hamper
Sew Pillows
