One Room Challenge - 1 Week to Go!

Once again I am late to the ORC guest participant party! The room is actually coming together and I have a few DIY projects to bang out this week, but I feel confident that I can get it all done. The biggest thing that needs to happen is for my sofa to be delivered. Its really the center piece of the room. Fingers crossed.

So my West Elm chair came and I love it! I also did some shopping for pillows and other odds and ends.


I got the pillow from Home Goods. Its a pretty grey blue velvet. 


These white pillows will go on the sofa. Every room in my house has a basket - mostly to hide all of the kids' stuff in when people come over. 



I swapped out the fabric in the secretary. Its subtle, but looks great. I have extra fabric and will probably make a couple of pillows with it. Speaking of extra fabric, I used the leftover curtain fabric is make a big pouf. A friend had given me all of her old patio cushions a while a ago - I look them a part and used them to stuff this thing. Its a little lumpy. I think I need to remove all of the foam and snuggly wrap it in batting, then put it back in the cube. The kids love it and it makes a nice foot rest. 



I had really wanted to buy new chairs for the area by the window, but they weren't in the cards. So I brought up two chairs from the basement. They were underused  in the basement and they work really well in this room.  I thought the black would be a little harsh - but my grandmother always said "every room needs a touch of black" and she was right. 


I also bought this cute little end table for the room. It was on sale for $80 at target! You may recall that I have a thrifted table that also has a hexagon shaped top. I'm working on that piece today. 

In addition to the sofa delivery I still have to tackle that big blank wall, paint two pieces of furniture (surprises), and fuss over the room's styling. EEEK. Oh, and did I mention that the kids have three days off of school this week! 

I can't wait to see all of the big reveals next week!
