One Room Challenge – Week 5

It's crunch time, people.  Week 5 of the One Room Challenge has left me with feelings of anxiety and excitement.  Progress has been slow but steady and I honestly cannot wait to see my studio space dreams come to fruition!  It's been a blast following the designers, as well as other guest participants (like myself!) who've decided to join in on this 6-week transformation!


Even though I've made some excellent progress, I might have bit off more than I can chew.  I'm pretty consistent that way, I always seem to think things are easier then they are (just ask the hubs).  Long story short, I made a last minute decision to change the upholstery on my antique chair on top of stripping the paint.  Yikes.  What was I thinking???


But honestly, the fabric wasn't in great condition.  The photo above hides the rips and tears pretty well, but it was in rough shape. The natural wood looks so much better than the yellowish paint it originally had.  And I'm actually loving the wabi-sabi look it has now, it looks a little more aged and weathered.  With only a week left and a busy weekend of social commitments, I'm nervous this baby will not be complete by the reveal.  Plus, I think my lungs need a break from the potentially toxic fumes that were released while stripping paint.  Did I mention I'm also a hypochondriac? ;)


Moving on…we have a light pendant, a rug, a side table and a desk lamp.  What's left to do?  Finish the chair situation and find a plant or PLANTS.  Plants make me happy, especially when I can keep them alive.
