One Room Challenge - Week Five

Good Morning Y’all!  Welcome to Week 5 of the One Room Challenge.  Unfamiliar with this cruel method of torture?  Linda, from Calling it Home goodness, selects 20 bloggers to participate in a 6-week One Room Challenge to completely re-do a room in their homes.  Each week they report progress for viewers to ooh and ahh over.  This year, Linda decided to offer a Linking party for those of us that want to play along.  I am deranged enough to join the fun and am re-doing my master bedroom.  Click to see Week One, Week,Two, Week Three and Week Four. 

During week four I shared with you my premium photoshop skills.  I know, I know.  You’re welcome.  I was thinking that I was kicking ass and taking names.  Then today rolls around and as I type Week Five I am thinking holyshitholyshitholyshitholyshitholyshit.

This week a few things have happened.  Some art has been hung.


As have the curtains and bamboo shades.

Some pillows have been made.

Let’s look at my to-do list for the challenge:

·         Make Curtains

·         Buy/hang bamboo shades

·         Get dresser

·         Figure out lighting

·         Art

·         Make pillows

·         Paint headboard

·         Make bedskirt

·         Paint and upholster stools

·         Get round mirror

·         Clean room

·         Rug

·         Decorate

·         Keep kids & dogs out of my room long enough to photograph

·         TV cabinet

This is THE. LAST. WEEK.  And, let me just say, it isn’t really a full week.  Really, in order for me to photograph everything in good light and edit, I’ve got to finish this weekend.  Which gives me only a few more days.  holyshitholyshitholyshitholyshitholyshit

Especially since I have gotten a wild hair and have decided to attempt a MONUMENTAL diy for the room.  Because I am a fruitcake  a masochist  AWESOME.  Here is a sneak peek.

Yep, that’s all you’re gonna get until next week.  Same time, same place.  Be sure to check out the ORC posse here.  And the linkers here.
