Will I Survive? One Room Challenge: Week 5


Happy Thursday! Only one more week until the end of the One Room Challenge and the final reveal of the playroom! Will I survive? Only time will tell! If you're just joining me, here's the 4-1-1:  five weeks ago I committed myself to a nut house, just kidding, I committed myself to a six week challenge to transform our storage-free office into an outdoorsy, cabin-themed playroom. So far we've planked a wall, created built-in cabinetry, and painted a futon.

Outside of my crazed accent-piece-shopping frenzy this past week, we've actually accomplished quite a bit this week.

The built-in, cubbies, and quarter round have all been painted.
Some of the cabinet hardware has been installed.

One Room Challenge: 6 Weeks to Transform an Office into a Fun, Outdoorsy, Cabin-Themed Playroom

I spray painted the caged pendant lights (they were originally silver)


The hubby put together these thingamabobs.
I have since stained them but one came out  sub par do we have to re-do it.
Anyone want to take a guess on what I'm doing with these?
I'm SUPER excited about this project!



I've purchased and been playing around with accessories as well, including fabric for the no-sew curtains I made this week. It was a toss-up between the buffalo check and the Aztec fabric. I LOVED both of them!
Guys, seriously, I am the world's most indecisive person! Soooooo...
I took a vote over on Instagram  and it was pretty much split down the middle. Insert head explosion.  I lost some sleep over it and in the end my decision came down to time constraints (one would arrive quicker than the other) and the width of the fabric. I know, thank god, I'm not running this country.
Which one do you think I picked?


With only one week left, I see the light at the end of the tunnel but I'm at the point where I'm left with a long list of all the little to-dos and well, let's just say, thank god for wine!

Wish me luck!!
Make sure to follow along on Instagram, where I'll be sharing sneak peeks before the final reveal!

Also, check out the fellow One Room Challenge participants here.
Surely, some of them will be my friend in ORC rehab, right?

I like how the buffalo check plays with your knobs...my 2 cents. Let's hope you DON'T end up checking the last thing off your list. Too funny!
