This time one year ago I was beginning my very first One Room Challenge, where I made over my Master Bedroom. It was packed full of second hand finds and DIY projects, and honestly... just about wore me out!! I think it's taken this full year to recover. ;)
But boy, was it worth it! It still feels brand new and I enjoy waking up and going to bed in that space every single day.
I hadn't really thought I would participate this round, but when it came down to it couldn't bring myself to miss out on the fun, and get a makeover in the process! I'm grateful to Linda from Calling It Home, the creator of the One Room Challenge for encouraging us all to complete a room from start to finish in just 6 weeks- or a least get it in better shape than it was when we started!
Our Powder Bath.
And really, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the room. But if you're one of my regular readers, would you ever have guessed that's a room in my house? I chose that wallpaper 9 years ago shortly after we moved in, and my sweet Dad worked to hang it for me. A few accessories, and it's stayed exactly the same this whole time.
But... 9 years! My tastes have changed, my colors have changed, and I'm ready for that room to show it!
The main components of the room are just fine (sink, toilet, faucet), and will be staying, so the changes will all be decorative (yay!). The room is pretty small, has no natural light, and has a weird layout with 7 sides counting all the walls. So, that creates a few challenges. I took a photo of the ceiling just so you could see the footprint of room-
I have the basic design plan rolling around in my head, but I'm still tying to figure out what I'll want for artwork and lighting. I'll lay that all out for you next week, but for now, here's a hint at where we're headed!
Today I'm linking up with loads of other guest participants starting out on this 6 week journey to transform a space in their home as well, click here to follow along with them too. And, be sure to check in on the group of featured designers who will be sharing their updates each Wednesday. I have several sweet, uber talented blog friends in this group and will be waiting anxiously each week to check in on their progress!
