Welcome to week 7 of the One Room Challenge! If you have missed all of my previous posts let me catch you up. I am participating in the One Room Challenge as a guest designer. This time we have had 8 weeks to makeover a room in our homes and document it for your viewing pleasure. This challenge has been a little tricky with Coronavirus and a Revolution thrown into the mix but yet we have persevered.
To make a long story short, I am halfway finished with the showstoppers. This is what I call the elements in the room that tie everything together and bring that wow effect. I’m crossing my fingers that I can complete these in the next few days and then take my time with the finishing touches. Who am I kidding? This will totally be a race to the finish. I can feel it coming together though.
Let’s recap. I am making over my living room. Think vintage glam hollywood with a dash of farmhouse. Quite a mix…I know. My living room also functions as a family room and is frequented by my 11 yr. old son and my 2 yr old dog. This is a low budget makeover so the floors are staying and only cosmetic changes are happening but those are happening all over. All of the furniture stays but everything else gets transformed. Looking at this before picture gets me excited because I’ve made more progress than I give myself credit for.
In case you missed my week 1 ORC post, here is my mood board for this room.
OK so one last time…….Here is a list of my…still to-dos:
- Finish painting the trim
- Paint the interior doors (2)
- Build the barn door
- Build the behind the sofa table
- Create artwork
- Build frame for artwork
- Hang TV
- Hang window treatments
- Make cornice boards
- Get rug cleaned
- Hang wall decor
- Take pics.
I seriously checked two things off of this list from last week. You can expect my reveal on July 5th! I don’t know about you but I can not wait to be done!
Don’t forget to check out what the featured designers and other guest participants have been up to the past seven weeks. Many of these transformations are already amazing and I haven’t even seen the reveal yet.
