I woke up this morning and my first thought was “Holy crapola” (my thoughts are less than virtuous upon waking) “It’s Week #5 of the One Room Challenge. I now have seven short days to complete my list, which is still rather long, style my room, take pictures and share it with all of you.” It all seemed so exhausting that I went back to sleep for another hour. #Eeek. #NotsureifImscaredorexcited.
So, I’m going to keep this short. For those of you who may be new here or are just joining us, here’s the quick story. We’re turning our ugly formal dining room, currently being used as a poorly designed playroom with dining room furniture, into an actual playroom with dining room potential – aka a multi-purpose room! Week #1 I shared my dreams and ideas, and I was so excited to hear that you all “got” my vision! Week #2 was all about sharing the plans and my crazy to-do list. Week #3 had a lot of talk about built-ins. Week #4 I was able to brag about my new light, and the fixtures started rolling in!
This week we accomplished a bit more than I realized, especially considering I had an entire household of people with the stomach flu and a birthday right smack in the middle of it. I was down for 24 hours, but somehow, it seemed like I’d been down for 72 hours afterward! #Momsgottakeepwell.
I’m keeping it short – I still have an awful lot to do, mainly involving a table which currently looks like this.
Still, here’s where we are:
The built-ins are done! I can’t TELL you how excited I am to be finished with them!
Well, I’m nearly done with them – the knobs have yet to be installed, but STILL.
I’ve been playing around with a teeny bit of styling – nothing is set in stone yet!
I’ve picked up a few accessories.
The chairs have arrived.
The book/bar cart has found a permanent home.
The toy bins are ready for fun things!
There’s a ton going on!
Let’s take a look at our list – I need the added stress more motivation!

So, let’s say we meet back here next week – same time, same place for a little ol’ reveal? Bring wine! And cookies!
A Dining/Play Room in transition – Week #3
