Well it’s that time of year again…..time for the fall One Room Challenge
hosted by Linda at Calling It Home!
October 7 is the kick off of the 6 week adventure, with 20 design bloggers sharing a room transformation week by week on Wednesdays. Thursdays anyone can link up a room they want to work on, with a deadline to finish it up by Thursday, November 12.
I’ve done a few ORCs and they are GREAT motivation to get a room finished entirely (or even partly like my built in bookcase wall)!
I have a special gift for starting projects and never finishing them, just ask my poor husband about my attention span and how many “in process” projects and rooms we have around this house. Since I started working with clients on design projects, I have completely neglected my own half-done house.
(Paint samples all over our living room walls since MAY.
Paint cans are a nice accessory for a room don’t you think?)
SO….next week I am signing on to participate in this round, because I need to finish what I’ve started.
I’m making a little progress as of late!!
Hannah’s room refresh is almost done….
here is her bulletin board/statement art collage of photos I shared on IG yesterday:
FINISHED ROOM REVEAL IN THE NEAR FUTURE!
(I say that so I will actually finish her room and move on…..)
For the ORC I am going to tackle, once and for all, the most thrown together wreckage of a space in our house, my older son Peter’s room. I talked about it last FEBRUARY and now it is October and I haven’t done a single thing except make the worst and junkiest headboard in the world, the absolute bane of my design loving existence, thrown together hours before guests arrived. It’s so bad I can’t even show it to you but trust me, it’s DIY gone so very wrong.
I have mused about what to do with this room for so long…….
and who knows where it will end up,
but truly the goal of working on this space is to improve functionality for Peter.
And maybe make it look a teeny bit less like a frat house.
That’s not asking a lot of myself right?
So how about you – will you join me in the challenge so we can madly pull together embarrassing and neglected parts of our homes and finish what we started? Come on….it will be fun!
Early happy weekend my dears!
I’m off to this conference for the next few days and will see you next week!
