One Room Challenge Week 3- Macrame for the win

Welcome back to aquahaus, where I and innumerable other crazies are trying to re-do a space in 6 weeks. We are halfway through… or theoretically supposed to be, I now understand why this is the panic point in the One Room Challenge….

This week, I finished painting.  Uhhh, painting the edges and corners sucks!!

Here is our final space, all glittering in white paint, just waiting for that American flag to be hung.








Painting sucks.

To reward myself for all that hard labor, I treated myself to shopping.  and not just any shopping, my favorite- thrifting on Craigslist.

You see, there is a small side patio to the shed that is dying for a little sitting area.  


I knew what I was looking for…

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the equipale chair after seeing the below photo in this article.



I sat with my cup of coffee, tapped on the computer keys as quickly as I could..and a few minutes later, I hit Craigslist gold.

Hello little pretties!  How did you find your way into my home?  Muahahahaha.


Please ignore the fact that this room is in shambles.  It will hopefully be for a future One Room Challenge. 

Back to my obsession with these chairs, which will definitely make their way onto that side patio.  That long piece of wood (that’s what she said) in front of the chairs is for yet another project.  Let’s see if I can get my shit together for that in time.

Lastly, in an effort to bring back some boho into the #rockerbohochic, we have some macrame.  Yes, macrame- can’t have boho without it!  


I actually made this piece at a macrame workshop (yes, these exist in the utopia that is Austin) last weekend at Mockingbird Domestics.  (If you ever come to Austin, please go to this awesome store). I plan on hanging this beauty somewhere in the pool house.

Next week, I need to come up with a semblance of a room plan and buying accessories.

Have a great week! and please check out all the other kickass makeovers happening here.
