One Room Challenge: Week 5


GAME ON!  IT is WEEK 5 and I am getting in the groove…just a tad late.

 See Week 1,   Week 2,  Week 3, and Week 4 to get up to date if you are just joining in…


Just in time to leave town again to Charleston for The Southern C Summit. Woot Woot!  So excited to hang out with some of my favorite people in one of my favorite cities.


Back to task, this week Bo’s grasscloth was installed and looks DIvINE if I do say so myself.  We did MAJOR cleaning out. The linens arrived and are divine. 






I just realized this desk needs a fresh paint job or my other idea is let this become an inspiration board of sorts under glass…similar to images below



Work-Space-With-Mood-Boards elle decor 023

Here is the to do:

install ceiling light

have ceiling wall paper hung (FRIDAY)

have all art hung (14 pieces) crap again…no one can hang the art

arrange and style bookcases

order glass for the desk



Gallery Wall above the desk…. See tips on a galley wall here.

OB-Bo Gallery Wall

I will report back next week with the FINAL REVEAL!

It is gonna be GOOD (I think).

Be sure to pop over to all the other ladies participating in the #oneroomchallenge.
