One Room Challenge {W3}: Curtains, Coffee Table and a Conundrum

 & pillows!!!!!!  Lots of pillows {I didn't want to mess with the alliteration I had going on in the title :)}!


Hi y'all!  I am back for my week three update with One Room Challenge.  Challenge being the key word...  Our entry room is definitely looking better, but I am struggling with a few key items in the room which I will get to in a bit.  If your are new here I'll give you a quick glance at where this room started.  



Now last week I pretty much just took everything out of the room because I needed a blank slate.  


and here is where I am now...


Let's start with my new coffee table.  I wanted this room to feel more like a sitting area so it definitely needed a coffee table.  I had been stalking Craig's List for a bamboo/wicker coffee table and I wasn't having much luck.  I found one I loved for only $50 but it had a glass table top.  With Mack and his love to flip everything over I just didn't think that would end well.  Then I spotted this baby at Ikea. 


I thought {THIS TABLE} was so fun and for $60 I couldn't pass it up.  I'm pretty weird about buying furniture... I never want to spend a lot of money because I know me and I'll want something different in a few years.  


My favorite heavy weight crate from JoAnne's fit perfectly under the table and is great hiding place for some of Mack's toys.  Now if you follow me on {Instagram} then you saw my awesome pillow finds at Hobby Lobby.  These are by the fabric section and they are just the pillow cases.  I have a #pillowproblem so I already had plenty of pillow forms.  Anyone else obsessed with throw pillows? Anyone? 


This pillow only cost me $10!  Wooohoo! The yellow pillow is an old one from Target and the black one is a new Target clearance find.  


So now I need a little help... What do I do with this wall?!?!


If you look at the before picture I had three big wedding pictures on this wall with different colored mats.  With all the different pillows in the room I feel like I need something more simple.  I was thinking about doing a 2 by 2 grid of pictures with wooden frames, a large piece of art, or even some floating shelves.  I really don't know yet and I can't see the answer yet.  Help me!


  Thank you everyone for stopping by to check out my entry room progress!

  1. It's already looking fresher and more interesting. I particularly like how you're mixing textures from the rug, pillows, wicker table, wooden crate, and basket. The mix of textures with basically neutral colors is interesting.

  2. Your room looks perfect and as for the wall, maybe a simple fabric wrapped over a wooden frame? I don't know but, I'm sure it will be great :D Thank you for sharing with us at Funtastic Friday!
