It’s week 5 of the One Room Challenge and my procrastination power is kicking in. This isn’t the most exciting progress, but it is progress. The difference from where we started is already huge. I had originally planned to move this rug into this room and I’m so glad I did. It’s perfectly busy, child-like, cushioned, and was less than $150 when I bought it last year. 🤑
I am by no means a proud procrastinator and wouldn’t normally flaunt the fact that I am in this last-minute mode, but last week (like all the others) has been crazy!
We hosted a mini Halloween party for my
baby big girl and we’re still sitting on a sea of balloons and spider webs….. I haven’t found the time to pop several dozen balloons with a baby around, gofigure! On top of that, I used this past week to slap some other lingering house projects together before we invited folks over. The nursery took a backseat.
I already own this rug, so it scores points for being freeeeee and it’s pretttttty perfect for the modern vibe I have in mind.
It’s been in my daughter’s room (so she’ll be getting an update soon) and I worked it out from under her furniture “anchors” last night with baby boy strapped in his little bouncey seat. I’m sure I looked goofy as hell because he loved it.
I bought this rug about a year and a half ago from Amazon and I absolutely love it. Daddy just cleaned the thing and it was looking *nice*. Then Halloween happened and it was doused in blue goo. Yay.
It’s getting a nice bath this week using GoCleanCo’s magic recipe for stains.
The blanket is a Gigi original crochet (thanks mom). We still don’t have a mattress. Baby boy is sleeping with us in his bassinet. That’s how it went last time until she moved to her room at 6 months old. It will be bought before the end of this challenge. And now that it’s been said (typed) I can hold myself to it.
This week’s plans
Since so little got done, I have to repurpose last week’s list & add some more. But whatever!
- Print the art at FedEx
- Hang the mirror
- Move the rug – done
- Buy wood for the book ledges, windowsill, and feature wall
- Find the perfect ottoman (!!)
- Locate the jigsaw in the shed 😐
- buy the curtains
- find some awesome finials for the curtain rod
- brainstorm closet ideas (woof)
Until then, I’ll be maintaining motivation with a little help from the sweet souls on the same journey as me. If you haven’t checked out this season’s One Room Challenge designers, do yourself a favor. I swear these folks are so creative and ahead of trends, my mind is ready to explode!
