That went by fast! The end of One Room Challenge is here. Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments over the past six weeks! You kept my eyes on the finish line. As a greenhorn blogger, it’s my first time participating in Linda’s challenge and I loved it. There’s so much talent, inspiration and support. It’s been a lot of fun and a great motivator – I would definitely do it again.
Here’s where I started….pale, blah, no art, no curtains. In our defense we only moved in a couple months ago. Hence the sheet.
It’s amazing what paint, art and window treatments can do.
The placement of the bed against the wall is necessary for a squirmy three year old boy. Overall I’m really happy with how the room turned out! Hollis is loving it too. He wants me to fill the lamp with rubber snakes so we’re working on that one.
We kept the closet door but added molding, black paint and oil rubbed bronze hardware.
A big thank you to Linda from Calling it Home for organizing this fun mayhem and to you all for being so supportive!
