I simply cannot believe that we are already on week # 4 of the One Room Challenge!!
It has been an exciting, and challenging journey so far – finishing a room in 6 weeks, and documenting each step along the way through this blog. If you have missed the progress so far, you can visit the posts for week 1, week 2 and week 3 to get up to speed
As I mentioned, the craft project that I was hoping to get finished but never got around to, is making a small preserved boxwood wreath and 2 topiaries. I have found some good options online, but they are all a bit more expensive than I wanted to pay. With time running out, I may just have to suck it up and just buy the darned things instead of trying to make them myself. These will definitely complete the vignette against the main wall nicely, so they are a must-have.

I also need to get some tall white ginger jars for the vignette on my sideboard. I seriously have a weakness for ginger jars – usually the blue and white chinoiserie ones, but for the dining room, white will be perfect.

This is the lamp I will be getting soon to add some extra light in the dining room, and to complete the look of an awkward corner.

The beautiful pinched pleat draperies have been installed and they came out just as I expected. I am so in love with this beautiful fabric! Here’s a sneak peek. I don’t want to give it all away just yet 🙂

I also got a few art pieces hung, as well as some more plates on the walls. These framed abstracts were extras from a project I completed a while ago, and they go very well with the dining room.

These plates were purchased at Goodwill for next to nothing, and the empty frame came from Hobby Lobby. I will be adding either a monogram decal with the letters “CVI” (Casa Vilora Interiors), or a small 6″ round boxwood wreath inside the frame. Which option should I go with?
Of course the main wall with my wonderful carousel horse is coming together as well 🙂

The area rug is one of my favorite additions to the room (after the carousel horse that is 🙂 )

So as you can see, there are a bunch of unfinished vignettes in progress, but I have to say that the dining room is coming along nicely. What do y’all think so far?
Still waiting on the box pleat skirt for the console table, and throw pillows for the banquette and armchairs that my workroom is so lovingly customizing for me. I also need place settings for the table to dress it up a bit. I cannot wait!!

I know these are just tiny snippets of the room, but like I said, I don’t want to give it all away until reveal day! So please come back next week for more. You can check out my dining room makeover progress anytime by clicking the ORC icon in my side bar, that looks a little somethin’ like this 🙂
