Let’s Keep This Short and Sweet
Week 5 and still alive…
Follow along with me and the hundreds of others participating in the biannual One Room Challenge, where we design one room over six weeks and share our progress as we go…
If you found me via the One Room Challenge link-up, welcome! I’m Brianna, and I write all about making home beautiful. I love sharing how-tos, inspiration, and advice on creating a dream home — even if it starts out as builder basic as mine — that works for real life.

IKEA Finally Happened
I mentioned last week that I still had to go to IKEA. Well, I finally accepted that paying for shipping was 100% worth it. Sometimes your time is worth more than a somewhat exorbitant shipping fee.
To make the shipping worth it, I also ordered drapes and a bench that I might use in here. It would be nice for Matt to have a true guitar playing “zone” and a bench under his guitars could be really cool. A guitar playing seat requires low or, preferably, no arms.
Making the Dresser
The legs came in earlier this week and they’re very chic. And, they’re height adjustable! This is a great feature if you have uneven, old house floors. I don’t now, but I used to, so I appreciate these types of features.
But what color for the dresser? NOTHING FEELS RIGHT. That’s really all I have for an update. I’ve tried a few colors and they’re all just… wrong.
Wins For the Week
I also got the curtains up! Sadly, I forgot to snag a photo, but they’re afforable and very lux looking. Total score.
Pick a color and paint the dressers, then… style and shoot for the big reveal next week!
Until next week friends! And in the meantime, check out all the amazing work done so far by the 20 featured designers and the hundreds of guest participants.
