Vintage. Modern. Floral. Laundry Room ~ Progress





First I would like to say, I expected to be way further along then this. I started designing my floral laundry room project here, before the ORC with just a few things to finish up,
but these few things are taking quite some time.
I had planned to have my stenciling done by Friday night and then I could move onto my counter-top (the one in the laundry room) this weekend.

Modern French Country Dining Room Progress


Almost another week down! I'm so ready, between work, DIYing,
 trying to exercise and lets not forget trying to break a broody hen, I'm pooped!
 I'm looking forward to chilling this weekend and finishing up on some small things....

 So at the end of my ORC reveal,
I talked about making some changes to my kitchen and dining area. I also talked about going to back to my eclectic and french country roots. I talked about how I came to a realization while doing the ORC, that I keep fighting against what my house really is instead of embracing it. I got on the "Modern Farmhouse" bandwagon and instead of incorporating modern here and there, I had to go all out and try to convert my home into a modern farmhouse. I had even schemed of a way on how I could paint my house and make the exterior look more modern.
I honestly don't know what broke my spell, but what ever it was, I'm glad it did. I'm not modern, I like modern aspects, but I like french, rustic, chinoiserie and farmhouse aspects as well. 
And that's exactly what I have decided to do, a mix of all.  I am no longer going to limit my style, define my style and most certainly, I'm not going to compromise my style.
No, I'm just going to do me.

The ORC Aftermath: A Before and After Comparison

Maybe it's all this "free time" I have now or maybe I'm just not sure how to function any other way then 'under the gun' but I wanted to show a side by side comparison of the One Room Challenge I completed. I have been clearing out stuff and loading the trailer to take to the curb this weekend...and picking up after the aftermath of what is the ORC... and it got me thinking... I never really did show super good before pics... mostly cause I was embarrassed that the room looked like that. Now that it is all finished, I only feel it's right  my duty to show you how it really looked.
 Besides, who doesn't love a good before and after!
I have linked most of my products and or similar items in my 
original reveal post you can find that here.
