The Wall of Illusion ... ORC Week 3!

One Thing I'll Say about Linda and the ORC.  She gets her ORC'ers Ready, Committed ... and Motivated.  Good Thing. Because the Challenge is BIG and I needed the Push!

MY Illusion-Office is becoming a Reality.  Go Visit the Disaster To see How this all started!

About five years ago ... I got my own toolbox for Christmas.  I know, probably doesn't sound like much to the average girl.  One of my best presents ever!!  Don got tired of me stealing his tools ... well, now I don't have to, and DARE him to touch mine!

But I did swipe this air compressor.

Don't get me MAD.


Last Week Paul and Joe built my Wall.  Now the fun part.  Since I chose this fabric, I need to prep the plywood.  Fabric straight on board is stiff and hard and doesn't look friendly.

So ... Batting up The Board.


Batting Hung.
Fabric Hung.
Trim Wainscoting Happening.




The Corners ... Taking Shape!


Up-Close Detail of trim and fabric.  I am thrilled with the "texture" of the fabric!



Paneling.


Crown Moulding.


We have some Wrinkles to be worked out.

Here's what is happening Behind the Wall:

ArtWork ... HomeMade
I NEED 2 Cheap & Fun Chandeliers ... HELP!
Painting The China Hutch - UGH!
Organizing ... hasn't even come into the Picture!

Go See what is happening with all My Other Creative ORC'ers!!

  3. You can say it...I'm a total pain. This is looking so fantastic. I would say CL for the chandeliers, but a pair is really hard to find. Good luck.

  5. Love love that wall treatment and trim! Great job Kim. I'm sending you some chandelier ideas on making over cheap ones. I got some at Habitat for Humanity for $3.00 and painted them but there are more creative ideas I'll share. Good luck with it all. the organizing is a hefty piece of it all, but hopefully it will be so motivating once the bones of the space is done. Best of luck friend!

  8. LOVE your trim paneling!! Looks great! As for cheap chandeliers, try your Habitat for Humanity ReStore. You can usually find some cheap options that you can alert/spray.
