Its Thursday! It’s time for a One Room Challenge update! Today I am reminded just how delicate the art of compromise is …
So I shared last week that the fun rug for the downstairs powder had come in. Well, this week I decided to take it out of the packaging because we are so close to be finished with this room. To my dismay, the rug doesn’t work like I had hoped. So, back to the drawing board we go.
Then, the light that I ordered showed up as a fan… I kid you not. It’s a pretty fan but it isn’t the vanity light I so desperately need to wrap this space up. Thankfully Wayfair was super great about it and I should have the vanity light any day now.

I am still hunting for the burled wood but may end up going with a beautiful piece of walnut. Patience is a virtue… I hear.

Less than two weeks away from the big reveal! Can you believe it?!? I can’t!
