Living Room Remodel: Week 5
It is absolutely crazy to me that we're on Week 5 of the One Room Challenge. Week 5!! (If you're here for the first time, go check out Weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4.) That's almost the end! I feel like I have so much to do, and the irony is, I'm not even home right now. I'm in Wisconsin, helping my dad open up our summer cabin. I did get the grandfather clock finished before we left, so you can see it in all of it's remade glory:

I really like the way it looks in this corner. I was a little concerned this side of the room would be awkwardly empty, but I think the clock is the perfect thing to make it seem intentionally furnished, but still provide plenty of space to walk through.
I also started (key word here is started) the TV lift cabinet for the opposite corner. Here's what that corner looked like last week:
And, honestly? It still looks like that. But I'm working on a cabinet for the TV. It's very much in progress, and all I've got so far are some unattached sides, but I've started it, and that's an important milestone. I unfortunately do not have the pictures with me, so you'll have to wait in suspense until next week...
Finally, while I'm in Wisconsin I'm working on a standing lamp to go just behind the plant in the seating area. The key part? This teapot:
I found it stashed above a cabinet in the cabin, and decided it would make a great "lampshade" for my rather eclectic living room. At the very least, it'll be an interesting conversation piece. I've only just started the project, so I don't have much to show you yet, but come back next week to see if ends up looking at least somewhat decent.
And that's all that new this week. To recap a bit, the rest of the living room (still) looks like this:
Next week is the final reveal, and I'm super excited to see what everything will look like put together! In the meantime, go admire all of the other One Room Challenge rooms. They're almost done, and starting to look pretty good!
