The One Room Challenge Week Five

a week full of both problems and progress
Filed Under > Living

Typically when week five of the One Room Challenge hits I’m running around finalizing one last project and grabbing everything I need to style and have my room shot for the big reveal.  But if you read last week’s post, then you know that this is not a typical ORC for me.  This ORC has been full of more challenges than all of the last five ORC’s put together.  Challenges that are both professional and personal, and have taught me the meaning of grace under fire.

So where do I stand for week five? Unfortunately it’s not pretty.  The two largest pieces of my room are still yet to be determined; the sectional and coffee table.  And I’ve still got custom draperies and benches hanging over my head. While all my gorgeous Stroheim fabric arrived on time, my upholster was OOO (out of office), so this morning I’ll be in his office praying he’ll be able to make a miracle happen. 

The good news going into week five is that I was able to paint last week and thankfully Farrow & Ball’s All White was able to cover up my navy blue ceilings.  It took about four coats, but the room has been transformed perfectly to white and bright.  I also hung my Jonathan Adler chandy, laid down my Karastan rug, and had the hubs help me put together the bar cart.  So it’s not all doom and gloom over here.

I will be sharing some snaps on my Instagram Stories today of the pieces that have arrived and progress made so check them out there. And definitely read about all of my fellow ORC participants progress via their links below.  Fingers crossed their a bit farther along than me.  Thanks for following along, and fingers crossed next week brings a bit more to share.  Truly, MKR 

P.S. This image is from my fourth ORC and is speaking to me today!
