ORC Week 3 Update ~

Happy Wednesday ~

Today marks the third week of the One Room Challenge. Today’s update will be a quick one, as not too much has changed. Unfortunately, plans to install the crown molding are delayed as my installer has been out sick. I’ve also hit a bump with the lighting I had in mind for the space— the original fixture is now back-ordered and won’t arrive in time for the finale reveal. I’m torn between another option that’s stunning, but larger than what I originally envisioned. I do love a statement light so we shall see!

There has been a little progress though ~

This week’s highlights were finalizing the furniture layout, finding a new source for custom pillows, ordering a rug, and new door hardware from Emtek for the backdoor. The shades also arrived (almost 3 weeks earlier than expected!) at our doorstep last night!

I’m thrilled about upgrading our door hardware to something that not only looks beautiful but will also be connected to our Wi-Fi, so we will be able to lock and unlock it from anywhere. We are all constantly using this door, so the peace of mind that it is locked when we are on the go will be worth its weight in gold. Emtek is known for its high-quality and stylish hardware for doors and cabinets, and I’m very excited to be partnering with them on this.

For the furniture, we just ordered two swivel chairs! We have an open floor plan, and this room opens up to the dining area and kitchen. So swivel chairs are perfect. I know the kids are going to love them too. I debated ottomans, or keeping our thrifted coffee table with the glass top for this room. I decided to keep the table (because I love it so much), but it will likely go in storage for the summer so the kids can play without me worrying in here.

I’m hoping to get the shades and crown installed this week. So stay tuned for more updates, hopefully soon!

I also wanted to say thank you all for the feedback on our wallpaper from last week’s install. I really appreciate all the comments and messages! I love how it turned out, and the room already looks so much better 🙂 See you all next week ~
