Hi guys!! week four!! eeeep! If you are new here, WELCOME! You can find the last few weeks posts down below. The mood board is also shared again for your reference! Also make sure you head out all the other awesome bloggers participating in the One Room Challenge by checking out their BLOG.
After barely any progress last week in WEEK THREE, I am here making great strides. In the last three weeks, I managed to paint the room, buy furniture and semi-assemble it. After some hiccups with the Ikea Alex Drawer unit (got a wrong piece, and had to make another trip to ikea). Now, this week I finished assembling the desk, and got the chair delivered! The office chair is gorgeous and Ive linked it below for you if you are interested!
I also did not one but TWO DIY’s for the office.
First, I made pine shelves inspired by Angela at Angela Rose Home. She shared these super easy shelves in her instagram stories and has them in her bedroom. They looked too easy to make, to be true.. but really they are incredibly easy! I shared the whole process on my Instagram Stories saved HERE.
I also installed the shelves and the second DIY i.e Ikea trivets turned to bulletin boards ( watch the whole process HERE) and now I have to style them!
I am loving how it looks so far… but theres still a long way to go in terms of styling the shelves, and I am not fully convinced I love that lamp. The other side of the room, with the bookshelf is pretty blank and needs some love too! I had initially bought this cane chair from Ikea that I shared in my mood board… but it feels so… BLAH. So, I think I am going to go return that and look for something else.
I am also not convinced I love the lamp… but I am all out of $$ for the office, and im not sure if I can find something else in time to replace this lamp that I had already. Hmm…. I have to think about this a bit more. I will definitely be polling y’all in my Instagram Stories with some more desk lamp options, so make sure you stop by there.
So here we are in WEEK FOUR.
The tasks for this week include:
- Style shelves!
- Move and style bookshelf.
- Find a chair for the other corner, and order that!
- Order rug
- Finalize lamp selection.
Am i being too ambitious? maybe a tad… but its time to hustle to get this room finished!!
See you all next week here, and on Instagram until then!
