One Room Challenge - Week 5.

So this is it.  Next week, Week 6 is a farce, because Week 5 you have to wrap everything up in a neat little package and photograph the final reveal for Week 6.  See what I mean?  Well, things are still hopping around here.

To catch up ... Week One, Two, Three, Four.  Thanks to Linda at Calling It Home.  I am forced to get a room done in our #ProjectDownSize!  A girl needs a little encouragement every now and then!

This is my monogram mock up (I will have one in gray and one in orange!) for our duvet and a throw.  Don is still not certain why he doesn't get included.  How can I explain that gently?  I should be picking them all up this weekend!


As you know I have been gone for two weeks!  First I was at HighPoint Market then happily and excitedly joined Don at Ponte Vedra Beach for a few days.  Just got back home on Tuesday of this week.

Here's what still needs to be done ...

1.  Finish painting the armoires.

2.  Window Treatments need to be installed - I picked them up from my workroom yesterday and I couldn't be more excited!  They are the BOMB!  Window Hardware ordered, should be here by Monday. (fingers crossed).

3.  HEADBOARD ... well, I made a stop by Thibaut's showroom while at HighPoint and met up with LoriAnn, the one in charge baby, and pleaded my case ... guess what ... it arrives TOMORROW!!

4. Pick up my closet doors TODAY! ... they are getting a little mirror action ... and then doorknob install!

5.  This is my Settling Moment.  Not that I am not happy, because I am ... but here's what happens when you are on a deadline.  Sometimes you just have to make decisions that maybe wouldn't have been your perfect ideal, but you move on and get the room done.

Case in point ... my nightstands .... I scoured craigslist, estate sales, online sales ... but my needs were particular 30" H and between 26 - 28" wide.  Well let me just tell you, those are evidently really hard measurements.  I wanted a burled wood formal style ... or perhaps a little MCM feel ... but every nightstand that is vintage is only 20 - 24" high.  Well, that wouldn't work ... so I found these ... 

From Arhaus furniture ... I actually really love them, but I had to work myself into the relationship. My first love was this ... 

This gorgeous burled wood piece that Traci Zeller used in her High Point Junior League Showhouse Entryway.  Well ... it was truly too large ... in size and moolah.  

The Arhaus nightstands are in and the size and look is perfect.  Here's to Making Decisions.  NOW. Thank you to Linda for these NOW decisions.  You get the job DONE!

These next few days are going to fly by and yes, I'll be working hard by day and looking forward to Tuesday, that's when the amazing Emily O'Brien will be photographing the room.  Ready or Not.  And at the end of Tuesday ... I'll be enjoying a nice chilled glass of wine on the back deck.  Weather is finally turning ... and Don and I will have a Master Bedroom!

Check out all the Wednesday ORC'rs ... and the Thursday Linking Participants like me.  If this doesn't inspire you ... well, then nothing will!
