One Room Challenge | Week Five | Putting It Together

T-minus one week until the sunroom reveal! We officially wrapped Week Five of The One Room Challenge. The sunroom is currently a hot mess (photographic evidence below 👇), but all those cardboard boxes contained some good stuff. This final week will be all about bringing the elements together. We are so excited to see this room go from neglected to purposeful!

We took care of some of the more tedious tasks this week: printing artwork, assembling furniture, staining shelves. Not the most photo-worthy of projects, but necessary. Here is a sneak peak of the overhead lighting after it was assembled. Kylie’s thumb suffered from attaching all those crystals by hand, but when it’s hanging from the ceiling, it will add the perfect touch of sparkle to the light-filled sunroom.✨

A 10-Minute Pillow DIY

I saw this pillow, fell in love, and thought it would be an awesome DIY project. First, I ordered this beige pillow from H&M. If you haven’t checked out H&M’s home section, go give it a look. They have some amazing items—I especially like their pillow covers—at great price points. Next, Kylie and I carved a half moon shape out of a potato. I’ll be the first to admit our knife skills could use some work!! To complete the project, we mixed two colors of craft paint to get the shade we wanted, and started stamping. It was a super simple DIY, and I love the outcome! Check out the final result next week!
