one room challenge...week five


This post is going to be short and sweet because it's... 


and I've still got a long to-do list that's making me totally stressed out a tad anxious.  
Since I was out of town for the weekend celebrating my awesome dad's birthday I'm
feeling extra crunched this week, but I'm so excited at the thought of my room
being finished and being able to enjoy it in one week!   

I did finish my hack of the Ikea Rast chests - stop by tomorrow for the reveal and tutorial.
Here's a peek for you, let's just say I'm a happy hacker. :) 


My window shades arrived! Yay!


I'm making a simple tailored bed skirt using this Nate Berkus fabric (Patras - Chamomile) and
 although I'm sewing mine, I'm counting on this super easy tutorial to have it finished in no
 time! Thanks cute friend, it's perfect for crunch time! 



I did some shopping, still testing out some lamps. :) 


My chair was on the list for painting today, but mother nature wasn't 
cooperating at 35 degrees, fingers crossed for tomorrow!


This week I'm working on:
 making pillows
 artwork projects
bedding, and accessories
the chair - paint and re-upholster
hang the headboard, mirrors, window treatments
paint the trim
wash the windows
eeeek!

Good thing it's Halloween because my house is frightening, 
a scary mess of projects and supplies all over!

Thank you all so much for stopping by every week, I couldn't do it without
your support and encouraging comments, they truly keep me motivated!

xoxo, pam    

Be sure to check out what my friends have been up to this week and don't forget to 
stop by Linda's on Thursday to see the progress all the others have made:

Oh my oh my!! The Ikea Rast tease looks so phenomenal, I can't wait to see them tomorrow! And the bedskirt fabric - love. (and thanks for the shout out :) ) I am so excited for this room reveal next week!!!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

I am totally sweating it out with you. That Ikea hack is looking fantastic. Can't wait to see what you did and how. I guess I won't complain about 44 degrees, but it is too cold to spray paint so I am not happy.

Julia Konya said...

This sneak peak is killing me. I know you've got a Pinterest hit on your hand before even seeing the complete dresser.
I just made a tailored bedskirt as well but mine is attached to the box spring. Will share next week.
But I really can't wait to see that Rast ;)

The Ikea hack? Gorgeous!! And I think this is one of the major reasons I don't like winter. Serious halt to my spray painting addiction! xo

It's in the 60s and 70s here in DC and a gorgeous fall. I can't wait to see the details on your Ikea hack. Everything is looking great.
