one room challenge week #5: crunch time

it's the home stretch, and i think it's pretty fair to say that everyone involved in this challenge is feeling the crunch! there is only a week left to finish our rooms, and make them PRETTY!

of course, on the road to pretty, there is a whole lot of mess + ugliness!

my room is coming along!
i painted three walls a neutral shade called "old soul" by benjamin moore. it is SUCH a great neutral color....similar to revere pewter, but a bit warmer and darker.

i fixed the peeling veneer on this chest and swapped out the hardware.

the new hardware is from chinese brass hardware. LOVE it.

 the revamped chest in its new location...
i am still deciding where to place the minted art pieces.

the back wall will be alternating stripes in chalkboard paint and cork! i just finished the chalkboard paint last night. the cork should be up tomorrow.

the new bedskirt and shams from loom decor are stunning! i ordered extra of this same faux bois/zebra fabric, and am having my window treatments made from it!

the curtains should be ready by tomorrow, and i will be picking up the chairs either today and tomorrow. ( be sure to follow me on instagram to get a sneak peek before next week!)

check out the rest of the gang here!
