One Room Challenge | Boho Chinois Chic Bedroom {Week 4}

Posted on April 28, 2016

Thanks for stopping by to check on my One Room Challenge Boho Chinoiserie Chic bedroom progress! I’m a total slacker and missed the Week 3 update. I had a good excuse – we spent four glorious kid-free days in New Orleans last week. It was one of the best long weekends ever filled with wedding, birthday and Jazz Fest fun! My jeans are tighter, my liver’s tougher and my heart’s a little fuller. I think I was meant to live in New Orelans. In the Garden District. In one of those beautiful huge old homes. At least in the winter that is. Trying to make some progress on the room and get everything squared away to leave the kids with a sitter for four days meant no time to write the post before hopping on the plane. I deluded myself into thinking I’d knock it out in New Orleans but come on – there were just …

One Room Challenge | Back in Black Dining Room {Week 4}

Posted on April 28, 2016

Guys, this post is going to be short and sweet. Its week 4 of the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home. I almost feel bad saying that things are going well and I’ve got no real problems to write about. Because it makes for a pretty boring post and an anti-climatic 6 week makeover. If you are just joining for Week 4, you can check out the plans and progress in Week 1, 2, and 3 here. But things are moving along and at this point I’m almost finished with all things on my room makeover list. And let’s be honest- I really didn’t take on a huge project like others have for this 6 week makeover challenge. Basically my plan was to paint a room, get some new furniture and lights, and style it up. I did have one hiccup that I’ll share only because the company …

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE | BOHO CHINOIS CHIC BEDROOM {WEEK 2}

Posted on April 14, 2016

  It’s time to check in with Week Two of Calling It Home’s One Room Challenge. Did you see all the gorgeous spaces designed by the twenty invited bloggers? Wowza! I’ve already got some contenders for favorites but every single one of those rooms is going to be amazing! Also be sure to catch up with all the One Room Challenge linked up participants and see what they accomplished in their first week. Can you believe there are 249 bloggers taking part in this round of the ORC? Pretty Practical Home came up with the idea that somebody out there should make a spreadsheet to break down all the rooms and the bloggers. Any takers out there – if so I’d love a copy! Here’s how the whole One Room Challenge is going down around here- Last week I posted my mood board and my overall plan for the room. You can see all the before …

One Room Challenge | Back in Black Dining Room {Week 2}

Posted on April 13, 2016

Hello, hello, hello Week 2 ORC participants and spectators! How much fun was last week? I am always so amazed and inspired by the community that is generated during the One Room Challenge. And y’all were so kind to leave nice comments about the plans I have for my dining room! This week I wanted to stop in with a quick update on progress in the dining room. On top of this dining room makeover, the makeover on my fireplace wall is progressing at full speed ahead. Not the best timing but I’m not doing any of the work myself on the fireplace so I figured why not make a mess of the whole house in one shot? Plus life is boring when you don’t have chatty carpenters to talk with all day long! The big change in the dining room from last week to now is the new wall color! …
