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.

 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

Our Master Bedroom Flooring

Last night as I was showing a neighbor around the house (for a girls wine night..how fun right?!!) I realized that I hadn't shared our master flooring and office flooring!! You guys this floor was literally a STEAL! Every single person that has come to see the new house LOVES these floors!

Okay, so back to the beginning... when we were picking out the carpet for upstairs my husband and I both decided we didn't want the master bedroom to get new carpet.  It is the only bedroom on the first floor and the entire rest of the house already had tile.  I personally did not want wood tile in the bedroom just because I felt the need for something "softer".  Getting new hardwoods wasn't exactly in the budget so we decided to check out laminates.  Now, let me start by saying I have never liked laminate. You all know as soon as we buy fixer upper properties we ALWAYS rip out the laminate.  I just think it looks cheap.  Well...I was so impressed with all the laminate floors th…

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to 
Lexmod Furniture WallPops Bealls Outlet
Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".


The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!



When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

Our newest addition (Blue Rug Obsession)

Good Morning Friends!  Over break we added another BLU-tiful rug to the household.   In case you haven't noticed blue is kind of the running theme in this house (Our Coastal Craftsman) and I can't seem to get enough.  The kitchen needed a runner but I couldn't find one that was the exact length I wanted so instead I ordered a 3x5 rug.  This post contains affiliate links provided by Wayfair.
When you walk in my house you see the dining room rug (Link to buy dining room rug HERE ) and it has so many beautiful colors and keeps the room feeling light and bright.  The kitchen has a lot of light too but I didn't want something AS light just because I knew it would get a lot of traffic/ and or kitchen accidents.  



I almost went with the blue family room rug because FOR REAL it is SO gorgeous and SO soft (Link to buy family room rug HERE ) but I knew I wanted to make sure I had some aqua and just different shades of blue really to play with in the kitchen) 



So when I found th…
