{One Room Challenge} The Living Room Reveal!


You guys never cease to amaze me...I was completely blown away by your supportive and enthusiastic comments for yesterday's Behind-the-Scenes post about my Redbook Cover Shoot! I'm still grinning like a goon from all the love...thank you!

Now let's get to the matter at hand...the reason you're all here today! Is it {One Room Challenge} reveal day, or Christmas Day...because frankly, I can't tell the difference right now! I'm so beyond excited to share our new room with you...and even more excited to curl up with a cup of wine...I mean coffee, did I say wine? (it's been a crazy 6 weeks!)...and check out the other 19 participant's rooms today, and all the linking participants tomorrow. It's going to be inspiration and eye-candy overload this week, and I can't wait!

Let's recap for those popping in for the first time...we tackled the 'formal' Living Room for this go-round (we did our Master Bedroom in the previous ORC). My goal was to create the feel of a jewel-box, with deep colors, lots of glam, and an element of drama, and I collaborated on the room with the most talented girl I know!

Week 1 I showed the Before shots and room layout, Week 2 featured the Design, Plans, and a big fat Hiccup, Week 3 was major Demolition Zone, Week 4 things got Light & Bright, and last week was all about the Navy Blue Tuxado! #whew

I'm not going to sugarcoat it...things got a little crazed, and up until two days ago, I still wasn't sure I'd have a finished room in time. But all the late nights and fast food dinners were worth it, because they led to a room I can't believe is in my house! How about I stop yapping and show you our new Living Room?

I'm warning you though, the number of pictures is excessive, but then again, subtlety isn't really my game.

I could not be any happier with the room...it's exactly the glammed-up, dramatic jewel box I'd envisioned. And of course what good are After shots without the Befores...I'd say this room came a long way!





Making over a room in six short weeks is pretty much bananas, but if it weren't for the One Room Challenge, it'd surely be 2018 before we got it done! Sure we had a few hiccups and hurdles, but to come out the other side with the Living Room of our dreams, has been a spectacular experience. Thank you, Linda, for creating this challenge, and inviting me to be a part of it!
