ORC-Week 3-Most Unproductive

Welcome back for the half way report- Week 3- Yikes! If you are just now joining me and want to catch up on the project- here is week 1 and week 2.

How is it week 3 already of this challenge? Seriously! I think my heart just moved into my stomach. I’ve been at High Point Furniture market for the past week – always a ton of fun but now trying to catch back up-(not fun)! Sadly, my room is in the same physical state as last week. But, I did a lot of product ordering last week and things are starting to trickle in. I will be heading running to the beach this weekend to do some painting and some major clean-up!


My Minka Aire fan arrived while I was at market this week and now waiting to be installed. I really struggled with the idea of a fan going back into the bedroom. A chandelier option would have been so beautiful! I just find most ceiling fans unattractive….but function is important to me and this is a beach house… in the South….it gets VERY hot and humid here!

I literally searched hours to find a nice balance of style and function in a fan and settled on this guy. I opted for a more modern style with three blades in a white finish to keep the room light and airy (no pun intended).






I managed to squeeze in some time to visit the stone yard and pick out my bathroon vanity top.  I found this beautiful Elegante White Leathered marble. This is the first time I have picked a leathered finish which, I must say I adore! The rougher texture and matte finish I think makes it a perfect coastal option and will work nicely with the tile in the shower!

Marble- ORC

Bathroom Tile ORC

Most of my fabrics have now arrived except my beautiful Lulu DK linen from Duralee in the multi blue which is out of stock. Boo! So I will be ordering the same fabric just in a slighly different color way. They have just enough fabric to cover the front of my throw pillows for the bed…thank goodness! The navy fabric will be on the back side. The white and the navy will also make up my drapery panels for two windows in the room.

The Thibaut Bankun Raffia in Navy will cover the front of my drawers on my DIY dresser project.
