It’s been a busy week, so I’ll keep this update short and sweet. I am finished painting the walls, baseboards, and window trim. I also installed the chandelier, and it’s beautiful!
It’s Week 6 of the One Room Challenge, and the office project is in full swing. I’ve shared some of the chaos on Instagram in stories. For a behind-the-scenes view, definitely check out the Fall ORC Highlight Reel.
I also made a reel about the experience of installing about 100 crystals. Each piece had to be unscrewed, and then reattached with the crystal. The manufacturer suggested installing the crystals before hanging it, but that would have been too heavy for me to lift. So, up and down the ladder I went.
Bottom line, it’s done! You can watch the reel here. It adds so much sparkle and elegance to the room.
I went with SW Pewter Green on the walls and SW Shade Grown for the bookshelves and doors. The darker green accent was a risky decision, but I think it’s perfect. I left the other trim white mostly because I am tired of painting. I kind of want it green. I may circle back to that if time allows.
Next up, I need to finish the bookshelves, order the desk chair, and put the gallery wall together. It’s coming along, and the finish line will be here soon!
