One Room Challenge, Spring 2018, Week 5: So Much to Do, So Little Time

Welcome back! I'm so glad you've followed along on this One Room Challenge experience with me. Week Five has just wrapped up, and as of this post, my room is done. My photoshoot with Jessica Delaney was Thursday, and I am so excited to see the final proofs. (Actually, are they still proofs when they're digital?) Next week's reveal post is going to be a doozy, so I hope you'll appreciate this week's non-wordy, mostly pictorial take on the two-day Week Five I had after returning from San Diego. But first, catch up here on what I've done so far:

Week 1: The Old, the Ugly, the Outdated, and the Inspiration to Change It All

Week 2: We've Got a Plan, Man

Week 3: A Few Days Late and A Few Dollars Short (Um, Spent)

Week 4: Help Is On the Way!


When I returned from San Diego, my light fixture had been hung:

I picked up the beautiful cushion from Laura Braun and her pups (in between meetings, in the parking lot of a Gap):


I bought a million plants for my living wall:


Gregg delivered my new and improved bench:


I decided to keep my rug:


I fabricated a quick and dirty table skirt using my old gray-blue linen drapery. (And when I say quick, I mean wasn't finished until ten minutes before the shoot):


And I styled my dining room like a madwoman late into the night on Wednesday before Jessica arrived the next morning:


I can't wait to reveal it all this coming Thursday...come back, ok?

In the meantime, be sure to see where my comrades are in the process...both the featured designers, and the rest of us guest posters. It's a feast for the eyes!

See you in a few days, friends. I'm going to nap now.
