One Room Challenge: Week Two


Hello friends!  So, they say progress, not perfection, right?  That is how this One Room Challenge is feeling right about now.  One a positive note, I got the room painted and the lighting fixture in, which is huge. However, it just doesn’t seem to add a ton of “wow” to the space.

If you are new here, I am updating my little girl’s nursery into a “big girl room.”  I have chosen pale pink and gray for the color scheme.  The walls used to be a very bland light beige color.  I have chosen Stonington Gray by Benjamin Moore for the walls.

Now that I see it in the space, I know it is going to pair perfectly with the pale pink accents I have planned.




Another huge game-changer for the space was lighting.  We live in a very old home built in the 1920’s and many of the rooms do not have overhead lighting.  First world problem, I know.  But it did impair doing homework and playtime for my girls.

Since I had to hire an electrician to wire in the lighting, my budget for lighting was small to say the least. I couldn’t believe my luck when I found this Vintage Gray Chandelier from World Market marked waaaay down as a floor model.

I don’t believe they make this same one anymore, but a similar one can be found here.

Here is a quick peek at how it looks in my space.



So that about wraps up my progress for the week.  The good news is a bunch of products I have ordered have arrived.  My Nina Campbell wallpaper that I plan to frame came lightning fast from England and the pale pink silk fabric I ordered arrived.  ORC week 2

I have also made some progress on some DIY faux fur stools.  Stay tuned  . . .

Check back each Thursday to see check on my progress on the One Room Challenge.   Knowing you will be here keeps me accountable!
