One week left!!!! Weeeeeeee! I’m so excited! Here’s a little preview of the room:
It’s not done. There is so much more to do but it’s getting to the really fun stuff. Crafting, hanging wall decor and styling. The. Best. Stuff. If you want to go back through the previous weeks of my One Room Challenge guest participant journey. That’s here:
The longer I left it in, the darker it got. I tipped the bucket to get different pieces of the wood wet. I flipped the sculpture over to get a little ear and antler dye-action.
It looks so cool if you ask me. My pumpkins could not understand why we didn’t cover it in pink glitter like the one in the picture on the box. Then they couldn’t understand why I only partially dyed it. SHAME ON ME.
Here it is in all it’s purple glory.
I also dyed the edges of a round piece of wood that will become a lazy susan.
I even used a medicine dropper to get some splashes of dye.
Once I got the layered look I was going for, I let it dry and sealed it with mod podge.
If you look in the mirror’s reflection, you can see the lazy susan with tons of tools and stuff I’m using the finish the room. I’ll show it to you again next week.
Let me just tell you, it was really hard to practice restraint and not dye everything in sight. This is all I did. I was so proud of myself. Things could have easily gotten out of hand.
