Spring 2015 One Room Challenge: Week Three

Welcome to Week Three of the One Room Challenge. If you are new here I am currently in the middle of redesigning my breakfast nook. You can learn more about the One Room Challenge and my plans for my breakfast nook here and here.

The redesign is in full swing and I'm only feeling slightly overwhelmed at the moment; but have no fear, I'm sure I will be in full on panic mode by next week. Haha!

I am in the middle of creating the cushion for my bench. I have never made a pillow, let alone a five foot long cushion so I'm praying that it turns out nice (pray for me please!!). I also painted the first layer of my DIY artwork. The fact that I haven't shared any pictures of it on Instagram should give you an idea of it's current state. This weekend I hope to finish the artwork and also finish the shelving above the cabinets. I have a few different options for the shelving and would LOVE your opinion to help me decide which option is best.

Here is the current layout.



Option 1: Add open shelving above the upper cabinets.



Option 2: Add open shelves above the upper cabinets and add faux support brackets below the upper cabinets.




Option 3: Add open shelving in a different formation above the uppers and either add the faux support brackets or leave them off.




I am debating between Option 2 and Option 3. I personally like the idea of the support brackets on paper but I am nervous about the execution in person. I'm also planning on painting the entire wall white so that it has more of a built in feel. What do you think about the white versus a different wall color? What option do you like best?

I will leave you with another shot of my color scheme for my breakfast room/great room. God I love the Chiang Mai Dragon fabric!!

  5. I would make the middle shelf in the top of Option 2 removable so that you can alternate between 2 and 3 depending on the size of the items you want to display.
