Boy's shared room- ORC Week 3

So it's week 3 of Linda from Calling it Home's One Room Challenge Linking Event. This marks the halfway point of the challenge. There's still so much to do. Not sure I will finish in 3 weeks mostly due to the schedule of the flooring guy.

I'm still stripping wallpaper and washing glue off the walls. so there are no pics of the room this week. Removing old wallpaper is a tedious job. I will be finished by the end of the weekend. I decided to hire someone to paint and repair the plaster.  He was very reasonable and I need to strip 2 other bedrooms so we can get all the floors refinished.

I did buy a couple of things for the room this week. The ceiling light and quilt are from PB Kids and the clip light, desk and dresser are all from IKEA. If I have enough time I'd like to do a little paint treatment on the dresser.Boy's shared room

I started my initial string art. If you follow me on instagram you saw this pic

I put an orange wash on the board and made a pattern and started nailing. I'm still nailing. My kids think it's very noisy so I'm working on it here and there while they're at school.

Window treatments are on the schedule for Sunday and Monday. So that will  be my reveal for next week. Till then go check out all the other linking participants over at Calling it Home.

Is that the actual color of the IKEA dresser? or did you paint it? I desperately need a dresser for my son's room and that one would be perfect.

That is the actual color. I got this pic from the IKEA website just the other day. I've had the dresser for almost 4 years now. It's held up really well. I love the HEMNES line at IKEA. I would say the color looks a little darker in real life, but that could just be my monitor.
