ORC-Whew! Its done!
As always, many thanks to Linda of Calling it Home for dreaming this baby up. Are you all exhausted too?
If you need to catchup here are the previous weeks.

 Week 5 Let's take a look at my plan for my 17 year-old daughter's room and the results.
ORC-Whew! Its done!
I had the bed, curtains and loveseat beforehand.
The girl likes chevron so I indulged.
ORC-Whew! Its done!
I ordered a Lucite chair (from a company I won't recommend) and the blue and white chevron rug was a last minute Homegoods find.
ORC-Whew! Its done!
The accessories in the room were the most fun for me. We both love elephants and the brass one was a thrifting score. ORC-Whew! Its done! I found this vintage magazine rack at a local thrift and hit it with some gold spray paint to tie it in with some other accessories and hold all of my old her records.
ORC-Whew! Its done!
ORC-Whew! Its done!
I actually had the table in my basement. It was a side-of-the-road broken find that I repaired and lovingly refinished years ago. I took a deep breath and just started painting it white before I could reconsider.
ORC-Whew! Its done!
I use my children's rooms as art hanging spots for my paintings until they sell so we can enjoy the paintings for a while.
ORC-Whew! Its done!
That painting is from my new series and my daughter likes things to be color coordinated  and I think this works with her color scheme without totally matching.
ORC-Whew! Its done!
ORC-Whew! Its done!
The lamp on her nightstand was thrifted and I wrapped nearly all of the books in fun wrapping paper.
ORC-Whew! Its done!
The pillows and throw on the loveseat make me want to steal them. ORC-Whew! Its done! ORC-Whew! Its done! I found these blue and white porcelain balls at a discount store and I may have to buy some for myself.
ORC-Whew! Its done!
ORC-Whew! Its done! ORC-Whew! Its done!
 I hung her watercolors that are for sale in her Etsy shop with bulldog clips and they serve as inspiration as she works. ORC-Whew! Its done!
A print from The Pink Pagoda and a small abstract of mine work nicely together. ORC-Whew! Its done! The rainbow was painted by her little sister and hangs with my favorite of all of her elephant paintings. I might just have to snap that up myself.
I learned a lot from this ORC. The main thing is that I never want to redo a a room with a resident slob. Every photo you have seen involved me moving clutter and clothes out of my way and putting things back to the way they were just a few hours earlier.
 We love the Parsons desk and ghost chair andI am really happy with the John Robshaw pillowcover I ordered and my recovered storage cubes.
Are going to spend the next few hours perusing all of the other fabulous ORC linker's rooms, like me?
