Dining Room Renovation – Artwork – One Room Challenge (Week 5)

Trying to play catch up this week with our dining room renovation design. I lost a week in the process, since I encountered issues with my deliveries and they weren’t as expected.

What is The One Room Challenge?

The One Room Challenge™ is a biannual event every April and October and is currently in its fifteenth season. Each round, twenty design bloggers take the challenge and transform a space. Every Wednesday, the designers document their process while sharing their sources and professional advice over six weekly posts.

The ORC has teamed up with Better Homes and Garden HERE to bring you this highly anticipated event.

My Participation in The One Room Challenge


This round will complete my fifth season of the “One Room Challenge”. So many other talented people are also participating as guests, please check out their spaces HERE.

Week 5 Progress

As I posted on Week 4, my deliveries weren’t what I was expecting. The chair fabric was quite a bit different than the fabric I presently have, even though it is the same color and chair design from Restoration Hardware. I assume my fabric has faded over time and that accounts for the difference in color.

I also realized that I am not going to be able to hang the 84″ mirror horizontally either. The back of it can’t support the weight, since it is intended to be a leaner piece.

As for the walls? I am talking to my painter this week to discuss plans for the room. Check back next week for the final reveal!
