I can’t believe week 4 of the one room challenge is here! I feel like I’m making progress but also kind of feel like this is going to end up being a one-week challenge for me LOL! At this point I’m still waiting on a rug and curtains but have nailed down a sideboard, chairs and most of my accessories.
If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that I was debating between keeping this sideboard below or getting something a little bit more modern.
About a month ago I picked up a dresser set to refinish for someone. One of the dressers, the shorter one, ended up having a broken drawer that was beyond repair so I ended up using that as a sideboard because I absolutely love the shape of it and the hardware and I really didn’t want to see it to go to waste. It still looks great, it’s just not completely functional which is fine because I don’t need a ton of storage in my dining room. I’m not finished painting it yet but below is a picture of the tall dresser that matches it.
The artwork above it is actually framed fabric from a cute Etsy Shop named Donna’s lavender Nest. She has so many awesome fabric choices and is definitely a shop to check out. I really wanted something that was a kind of soft powdery blue to add some pattern to the wall because I really really wanted wallpaper initially but it just didn’t end up working out with our walls. I’ll be doing a whole blog post on the tutorial for these shortly.
One thing I did complete fully this week is getting my mantle styled. Yay! Everything on it is a collection of things that I love. From my crystal collection, petals from the flowers when me and my husband got married, some artwork from my son and of course I had to throw in some blue and white.
That light fixture will hopefully be getting switched before the challenge is up!
The mirror hung is also my vanity mirror from whenever I was a little girl
This week coming up I’m hoping to receive and hang my curtains, figure out a rug and finish up my dining room chairs.
For my chairs I will be keeping these cane back chairs that I’ve had for a while now. I had initially painted them white but I’m going to Gel Stain the caning a nice blonde wood color. I really need some contrast in this room so I think it will work out nicely.
Hope everyone else’s progress is going well!
