One Room Challenge Fall 2016 || WEEK SIX REVEAL

It's here!!! Wow, these six weeks have flown by! First and foremost I must thank Linda of Calling it Home for putting together this incredible, wonderful, stressful, fun challenge! You must check out all of the featured designers that revealed their rooms yesterday. So many amazing spaces! I'm actually out of town right now, and there have been a few technical issues, but I think we are all good now!
Ok, so let's get on to the good stuff.

So before I get too far, let me start with the before shots so you can see how far we have really come.

You might notice that the fireplace has changed a little!

Back to the new and improved goodness...

Here is our entryway looking into the room

This is the view looking down from the second story. The light coming in from the windows makes this one of my favorite rooms!

This is how the bench will really be used...

Thank you so much for stopping by and supporting me on this challenge! I hope you like the new room as much as I do. I will be sharing more soon, especially some details about our DIY fireplace makeover. You must go check out the other linking participants here!

The One Room Challenge Fall 2016 || WEEK FIVE

Wow, so hard to believe we are already on week five of the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling it Home! So, next week is the reveal....What??? Finally getting this posted after some technical difficulties today! The weeks just fly by when you are doing one of these challenges. Ok, so time to talk about where I'm at. The major pieces have all arrived. Thank you!!! It took 11 weeks for the sofa, ottoman, and chairs to be manufactured and delivered, but well worth the wait. I obviously got a head start by ordering those before the challenge. Here's a quick reminder of those key players.

It's kind of hard to see some of the beautiful textures in my quick phone pictures, so I thought I would share the fabric swatches for these pieces. I love looking at fabrics! There may be a slight addiction there, but not nearly as bad as my pillow problem.

Ok, so on to some of the new stuff...
The console arrived...Wahoo!!!!!!! I actually didn't think it would make it. When I ordered it five weeks ago they told me that it could be anywhere from 3-6, but they would send me the tracking info when it shipped from the manufacturer. Well, I didn't ever get the tracking info, so I figured it wasn't going to make it...until the delivery company called this week to schedule a time. What??? YAY!!!!!!!! Here it is...

I'm so in love with my birthday present. It's such a unique piece! A close up of the faux shagreen texture. I just love using lots of texture to add more interest to a neutral space.

Here is our sweet boy Baxter modeling the new rug! Yep! Finally decided on a rug and it actually came in time!!! Yay! we all love it and I think it's just the perfect amount of pattern for this space. Here are some other pictures. One with a couple cozy throws I picked up from HomeGoods. That store is the best! My husband says the faux fur looks like a dead animal, but I still like it!

Is it wrong to love the legs of my furniture so much?
It's finally coming together, but still so much to do. It's amazing how much it takes to pull a space together. Decison fatigue is real and second guessing may drive spouses crazy! I need to do some more accessory shopping and am hoping a few other small pieces make it in time. Please UPS and FedEx make a girl's One Room Challenge dream come true! I'll do another post on some of the end tables I ordered. I might have ordered one in the middle of the night, because when I can't sleep that's what's on my brain!

Check out all the amazing featured designers and guest participants here! Thanks for stopping by and for all of your support!
