Is it really possible that it is already week 3?! If you ask my knees and fingers they will say, oh yes it is!

The plywood planks are all down!! We will be staining and adding the varathane top coat over this Easter weekend. Will be having a sleep over at my sisters house while the floors cure.
Here is a little peak at the new plywood planks. (pretend you don’t see the wall behind!)
I have gained a huge appreciation for the air nailer. At first I was scared to make a mistake and was letting Tim do all the nailing, but after a while I wanted to give it a try! Had I known how easy it was, I would have taken over earlier! My new favorite power tool.
I also had a chance to make over an old brass lamp I will be using in the living room.
Here is the before…..a really sturdy two toned brass lamp base with a lovely ivory pleated shade! Functional, but not my style.
And the after……a couple of coats of antique bronze spray paint, the pleated shade switched out for a burlap shade from a broken lamp I had hanging around, which I painted with some $2 craft paint!
You might remember my inspiration from Pottery Barn, which would have cost well over $200! Total cost for my makeover. $8.00. Yeah me!
I also picked up a couple of things at Target on clearance. I love that we have Target here in Canada now. Their Threshold line is the best! I plan to hang some hooks on the wall behind the door, and thought the wicker basket will hang nicely there and hold incoming mail and such. The blue glass vase was too good to pass up for $4.00!!
I have picked the floor color, but you will have to wait until next week to see what color we went with…….or did we leave it au natural??!! Only one wall left to paint. Working on sketching out a floor plan.
So, there you have it. One Room Challenge – Week 3 in the history books!
Come back next week as I will have lots to share in week 4!
