One Room Challenge // Week 4

You guys, the last few weeks have been everything except what I expected!

I started out being super excited about getting started on this powder room makeover and sharing that we were completing this makeover at my boyfriend’s house. The next thing I knew we were ENGAGED and I was so thrilled about becoming his wife! I had no idea a proposal was on the way but it makes this One Room Challenge even more fun.

Regrettably, I fell really ill within days after the proposal so not only could I not stay in the state of bliss of a new engagement, I couldn’t even keep going on the bathroom plans. I was admitted for inpatient treatment at the hospital for 8 intense days, so even if I wanted to, I simply could not.

One Room Challenge // Week 1

I have been keeping something from ya’ll all year and I’m finally ready to share.

I have been dating the same guy for about a year now! If you’ve been reading the blog for a long time then you know that I have been single for many years. When I met “T” he had just moved into the new home that he purchased and it was already beautifully decorated on the first floor (to my surprise!). I actually apologize to him because I assumed that he would have the “typical bachelor set up” of a large leather sectional with no pillows and a huge flatscreen TV with nothing else. What I saw when I first visited his home was far from it, and honestly, that was the start of many pleasant surprises that aided in my falling for him!

Breaking news y’all!

We have been given an extension on the One Room Challenge so now instead of six weeks, we have seven to complete our rooms. With all of the unforeseen natural disasters we have had her in the states, it was apparent that the timing of the start of the challenge was very inconvenient for a lot of participants. I’m so glad that we have a little bit more time! Keep reading to see how I applied fabric to my walls to dramatically update my space...

One Room Challenge // Week 3

When I decided to do this challenge, I wanted to do it to force myself to finish the year strong and finally make my place look like a designer lives here. What I did NOT account for is having one of the busiest months of the year at work & being at High Point Market for 3 days...

One Room Challenge // Week 1

I’m using this challenge to push myself to finally design and implement a space that reflects my style, on a budget, and using what I have.  Last year, my dad gifted me this comfy striped sofa that he found for $30! (I get my thrift store skills from him.) It's the perfect scale for my space, and super comfy, so I don't want to let it go! I thought about reupholstering it for this challenge, but then I thought it would be awesome to use it as a base for a fun mix of patterns.
