One Room Challenge, Fall 2016 - Week 5

Well, you may have noticed that I skipped right over Week 4 in the ORC.  There just wasn't enough progress to warrant a post.  But, we've gotten a lot more accomplished this week, and I am excited to reveal our revamped guest room next week.  It's not going to be the most dramatic of reveals, but I am so pleased to be able to offer our guests a welcoming space instead of the cluttered dungeon-like room it was up until a month ago.

We hung the drapes along the back wall, and it makes such a difference in the coziness factor.  My dad (who is fairly oblivious to all things design) even commented that it makes it seem like there is a wall of windows hiding just behind the bed - exactly my intention!  The dimensions are a little off since I had to work with what I already own and wasn't able to customize the drapes to the space, but I think it is still as step-up from a windowless room with drop tile ceiling. :)

ignore the wrinkles ;)

I also set up a little reading/relaxing nook in the corner of the room that previously held all of our junk.  Just a tiny bit of an improvement, I'd say. Still waffling over my accent fabric choices (the pillow and throw pictured are just stand-ins), but since it's down to the wire, availability may become my most influential factor.

That's my quick update for now.  See you next week for the reveal!
As always, don't forget to check out the other participants in the One Room Challenge!
