One Room Challenge: Week Five
This is the final week of scrounging together items for my One Room Challenge. Next week I’ll be showing you the final reveal of the bedroom in a country house.
As I mentioned last week, I was going to attempt to pull off a DIY with this Peter Dunham fabric.
I turned a pair of lamp shades from this…
It was nerve wracking! My hands were shaking and sweating. It wasn’t all that hard but I’m not a DIYer and so practicing on expensive fabric had the adrenaline pumping.
I also dropped off a beautiful print by the talented photographer, Julia Lynn, to the framers for art above the bed. I went with a darker frame to pull in the side tables and to up the “country” vibe. It also really drew out the darker colors in the photograph.
I’m hoping this Serena and Lily bench will arrive in time for the end of the bed.
There’s not a hope in hell for the Chairish side table will get here in time. It will take over six weeks to ship from Chicago. And my client paid more for the shipping then the actual piece. Thumbs down, Chairish!
But, all the other items are going to come together and I’m happy with every little bit that’s been arriving.
I’m glad the finish line is in sight because I’ve been running out of steam. One more week! Check out the other participants here.
