One Room Challenge (Dining Room) - Week 5



This is it folks! We are down to the last week before all the amazing One Room Challenge reveals take place!  I must admit I'm pretty smitten on how the dining room has come together over the past month.  This week I decided on the focal mirror, got it hung and began messing around with decor.

Check out all the ORC guest participants here......Guest Participant



 I ended up choosing this gorgeous sunburst mirror from Pier1 in a driftwood finish.  Remember how I kept saying I wanted something round.  Well, originally I bought a different round (30") galvanized mirror that gave me that porthole feeling I wanted.  However on our 10ft ceilings it just looked lost.  I returned it and saw this stunner in the display window! Needless to say it came home with me.  
Shout out to Pier1 for the most beautiful mirror AND the fact that it was incredibly simple to hang with it's own wire already attached.  My husband is forever grateful! Lol.  



I'm also excited to announce the red ladder is officially back in the garage! Can I get an "Amen!".  That thing has been in my dining room for a month!  In the meantime this week I've been back and forth between the real tree from Home Depot and the faux fig.  They both look awesome against the wallpaper but my gut is telling me to keep the fiddle leaf.


This cute woven basket is from World Market and I actually found it online in the clearance for $11!!


I also stopped into Marshalls this week and found this large oyster shell ball in the clearance marked down to $12 and knew it would be perfect on one of the buffet shelves! So I'm super pumped about that! 


I don't want to give too many sneaks into the room since the reveal is next week! I hope you all love it as much as I do! A few more tweaks and we are good to go.  I'm so happy I decided to take the plunge (scary as it seemed) and invite you all along on this design journey.  

XOXO
Tracy

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
