It’s week two of the One Room Challenge and I’ll be honest, things don’t look a whole lot different, ha! That’s ok though. Sometimes the progress isn’t so much “show” as “tell”…
Before we get to the good stuff, I want you to be aware that I sometimes use affiliate links in my posts. I may receive a small commission if you choose to purchase through those links but it is never at any additional cost to you and I only recommend products I would use in my own home. Thanks for supporting Bloom in the Black!
Speaking of, if you found me via the One Room Challenge link-up, welcome! I’m Brianna, blogger extraordinaire at Bloom in the Black. I write all about home design made simple. I love sharing how-tos, inspiration, and advice on creating a dream home that works for real life.
I’m going to be 100% honest: this is going to be a mildly lame update. I don’t have a ton to show. A decent amount to tell, I guess.
It’s been a lot of thinking, and planning, and ordering this week. One big issue I’m mulling over… the desk. I had initially planned to do a stained black top with natural legs but… a natural top with black legs is looking pretty good right now too. What do you think??
In my heart, I think I know the answer, but I am curious to hear a second opinion. I might be swayed by the amount of work right now, ha!
In other news, I had thought to order a premade mural and design the wallpaper but I might do a flippity flop on that. I was playing around with some shapes and themes that inspired me, and these elements feel like they belong on the mural wall….
Late-breaking: my chandelier arrived only hours ago! I am anxious to hang it tomorrow when I have the natural light to work by. Everyone pray I don’t get electrocuted.
I am 100% kidding.
Pro in da’ house over here.
Next week gets a bit tricky as my mother-in-law will be visiting. We are very excited for her to arrive but she will be staying in the construction zone. I want to keep everything as put together as possible so she can enjoy her stay. She is a super DIYer herself so maybe she can lend a hand!
Sorry to say, that’s all folks! I hope I’ll have more to share next week but pinky swear, it’s all getting done. Until next time.
