One Room Challenge {ORC} Week #5: Functional & Stylish Home Office

Welcome to Week #5!

The “One Room Challenge” is a bi-annual event hosted by Linda of Calling it Home, where featured designers showcase their talents in making over a space. In addition, the challenge is open to all those who wish to share a makeover of their own with the One Room Challenge audience, via a weekly link up party hosted by the site. Linda has named those who do so, “Guest Participants.” It has been a great motivation to keep up with home projects that I have planned.

If you visited last week, you saw I did a lot of shopping!

This week, I redid an antique table into a pretty green side table for my reading area.  You can see that whole post HERE.  In addition, my lighting arrived from Lamps Plus!  I am now officially bathed in light and couldn't be happier.  If you remember, this was one of the main issues in this room and we corrected that with overhead lighting in Week #1.  Extra lighting for the desks and reading chair were just what we needed to finish off this space.

So what am I hoping to accomplish with this room makeover?

Here are my goals for the next six weeks!

1. Paint wall unit white to freshen up the space.

2. Add overhead lighting.

3. A project table of some sort where I can work on crafts and blog projects. 

4. A reading chair that is comfortable.

5. Freshen up the walls with new treatment and art.

6. A rug to anchor the space. 

The One Room Challenge is a six-week challenge to fully complete the room. Each Wednesday, over at Calling it Home, you can follow along with the featured designers. On Thursdays, you can see the link up of all the guest participants and their week by week progress.  Be sure to check out the Week #5 progress of the Featured Designers over at Calling it Home.

I can't wait for you to see the big reveal next week!  I am so excited with how it turned out!

To life feeling like home!
