It’s week 5 of my guest participation in the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home and I’m excited to share some of the progress made since my last post. By the way, if you’re visiting for the first time, you can catch up to my 4 prior posts below. Thanks for stopping by!

Week One  /    Week Two  /    Week Three  /   Week Four

Before I discuss the progress made this week, I have to show you the ceiling fan that’s in Ellie and Lauren’s bedroom. Although it will be nice to have a pretty chandelier in their bedroom to glam up the space, we are not trading this fixture any time soon. Our bedrooms get hot in the summer, even with central air running throughout the house. This is why 7 years ago, we had ceiling fans installed in all of our bedrooms. It’s a challenge to find decent looking ceiling fans but I still love how this ceiling fan looks.

Let’s get to the 5 updates since last week:

1. New Bedding and Accent Pillow

On a recent IKEA trip, I found this adorable white fuzzy pillow as well as the grey with white-polka dot duvet set! This is just a little sneak peek. I’ll be adding a few more elements in time for next week’s finale! 🙂

2. Jewelry Pegboard Organizer 

Since I had these clear drawer pulls lying around, I decided to re-use them to hang the kids’ jewelry on the pegboard project I recently completed.

I installed them in varying heights for interest.

Looks great with the kids’ jewelry, right? This is a good start. Will have this jazzed up a bit in time for next week! 🙂

3. Love seat Update

In last week’s post, I mentioned about adding this geometric pillow to dress up the kid-sized love seat. Well, it still seemed to lack a little something so I decided to add more color by way of my pink and turquoise sarong! Much better.

4. American Girl Doll Play Area

For our 5 year old’s recent birthday, we brought her to the American Girl Doll Store in New York to pick up the doll she’s been requesting. Her name? Grace Thomas — 2015 American Girl Doll of the Year. Since Lauren LOVES playing with and dressing her dolls up, it’s fitting that there’s an area in this room for her dolls and accessories.

Look at this adorable canopy bed that a close buddy of mine purchased for Lauren! It goes so well with the cute bistro set that my sister bought for Lauren’s birthday!

I can’t take the cuteness! Look at that French bulldog. 🙂

Remember how this looked last week?

Well, you know me. I love making embellishments to things. Here are some fun 3-D stickers I purchased from Michael’s the other day.

There…. much more like my kind of style! 😉
