One Room Challenge | Week 5: Customizing IKEA Dresser + New Shades

It's the last progress week! Week 5 of the One Room Challenge was mostly waiting on products to arrive and cleaning out the rest of the room. We actually did some traveling over the weekend so I had some time to think about all the reveal shoot details. I almost always take a last minute trip to Target or some boutiques to get the finishing touches the weekend of the reveal shoot so I scribbled down some things I think might be missing in preparation.

If you're like me and have missed reading the some progress weeks, you can catch up really quickly.

One Room Challenge | Week 4: New Dresser & Painted Closet

Reveal week is creeping closer and closer! This has been a slow but productive week for our One Room Challenge middle guest room. We took a huge trip to IKEA, which is an hour and a half trip, and got most of the furniture. I ordered 90% of the products online and some have already started to arrive.

The New Roof is Up

Last week I showed you the different options we were considering for our new roof color from our roofer United Roofing. I landed on a dark gray and a lighter gray. After photoshopping both colors onto the house I decided on the darker gray called Charcoal Gray. A few days later the company showed up to work their magic. Yes, absolute magic.

One Room Challenge | Week 3: Middle Room Is Painted

When we first moved in we painted the entire interior Sherwin William's Repose Gray. It really is the perfect gray but I was ready for this room to have something different for a while. For Week 3 of our One Room Challenge the goal was to get the middle room 100% painted and ready to be styled. Well, I'm happy to report we got at least 80% done! It may not seem like much but we had company all weekend and Monday was a holiday.

One Room Challenge | Week 2: The Neutral Minimalist Mood Board

It feels like with every new room, every new mood board, I get a little closer to finding my actual style. l feel a little more comfortable letting go of color and exploring more with texture. I've pinned and saved so many photos to come to the conclusion that the spaces I really love have minimal color but are always still so beautiful and interesting. This week for my One Room Challenge update I tried to find products that I loved both individually and in the same space Once they all were side by side, I could see the room's vision come together. Like a lightbulb went off. My neutral, minimal room is ready to be uncovered.

One Room Challenge | Week 1: The Middle Room Befores

Our middle room, as we call it, has served many purposes for us over the last 2 and a half years. It was my dressing room, then a guest room, and now is storage for all those things you just don't know where to put. It became that catch all room after we turned the office into a guest room/my closet for the last ORC. This fall One Room Challenge season I'm guest participating again and I want to make this middle into... something. Right now I'm thinking of going back to a guest room.
