  • Wallpaper Makes The Heart Grow Fonder - ORC Week 5

    What a week it has been! My husband and I have finished all of our tasks for the One Room Challenge, and let me tell you, we both could not be more thrilled, excited and proud of all of the hard work we put into this project. The best part of all, we didn't get on each other's nerves once! That in itself if a miracle and blessing on its own. HAHA. On a serious note though, we completed the wallpaper throughout the hallway and did a little paint job as a last minute added touch to the pantry. First,...

  • ORC - Week 4 - Over The Hump

    I cannot believe that we are staring at the finish line with the One Room Challenge. What a smooth, and easy process this has been! It makes me want to refresh all of my bland and boring spaces in our home. (Although, I'm sure my husband would give me full blown death looks if he saw, or read, that statement.) Last week, was the completion of our 'midway point'. Now, that we have entered our fourth week of this incredible transformation, all that is left are the final, finishing touches. The first thing we completed at the beginning of week...

  • Master Bathroom Lighting Refresh

    When we were building, my absolute favorite part was designing the interior of our home. When I say favorite part, I would do it all over again for the chance to design and decorate a home from the ground up. It was the single most amazing and exhilarating experience of my adult life. (The process actual got me thinking about my future and what I want to do with the rest of my life, designing - but that is a topic for another time) When it came to the point where I had to meet with our builder's interior designer,...

  • ORC- Week 3

    I feel as if this One Room Challenge is just flying by so incredibly quickly, and more importantly, smoothly. This week I decided to get out of the house for a bit and start shopping for all of the little accents pieces I plan on using to decorate our newly refined space. But, before I head into those details, I wanted to discuss what was completed this week. I'll be talking about the accents I purchased in the next following weeks. As for the completion of week 2, so many good things happened and I am so excited to share...

  • One Room Challenge - Week 2

    We have officially moved on to week 2 with the One Room Challenge. The design has been finalized and we are in the process of moving forward, quickly I might add. I am absolutely loving how everything is coming together to bring our family organization and functionality. To recap on this incredible makeover, I have planned on putting the finishing touches on my children’s hallway and am converting our closet that is located under our stairway into a miniature walk-in pantry. When I thought of this idea, my first thought was “uh, GENIUS!’. Well, the pantry is 95% completed. I...

  • One Room Challenge - Week 1

    Building a home from the ground up comes with an entire set of challenges. Starting with finding a plot of land, then finding floor plans that work for your family. Once your home is framed, sheet rock is installed, upgrades have been finalized … BOOM you’re out of money! It’s a horrible feeling when you capped financially and you’ve only scratched the surface on the design front. Well, if you’ve been following along with my build, and design progress, you know that we have been settled for almost a full year. After a year of being on tight budget restraints,...
