Hello, hello! Today, I am excited to announce that I am participating in a 6 week room makeover challenge charmingly named Fall in Love! 18 bloggers and I will take one room in our homes and completely make it over from top to bottom! Sounds like fun, right?!
That is one talented group of design bloggers and I am excited to get to work and follow along with their makeovers! We will update you on our progress from time to time and the big reveal is planned for November 3rd.
So, now the next question is what room am I making over???
Well, let’s delve into the dark side of home blogging, shall we?
It’s time to be accountable and share with you my BLOGGER SECRET SIN!!
I started makeovers on both of our kids’ rooms before we left for Connecticut. That 3 months of not being at home thwarted all my blogging plans. C’est la vie!
Both rooms have sat unfinished to my kids’ dismay. So, this makeover challenge comes at the best time because I can finish one of those rooms. Since timing is falling around some other things going on in my blogging schedule, I have chosen to finish little Sam’s bedroom.
By the looks of this photo you would think that his room is finished…
Oh, but it is soooo not! I put this together quickly for a furniture review and giveaway of that Holly + Martin bookcase. I actually painted one wall and trim, just so I could get my post done in time before we left for the East Coast. Yes, that is my blogger secret sin!
On the other side of this photo, nothing is done! It is a sad little room, but we have some great plans for it!
IN THE NEXT 6 WEEKS I WILL…
PAINT ALL THE WALLS (NOT JUST THE ONE)
DIY A CEILING LIGHT
MAKEOVER HIS CLOSET
GET NEW BEDDING
MAKE A WINDOW TREATMENT
ADD IN PERSONAL TOUCHES THAT WILL MAKE HIS SPACE SPECIAL
My youngest is a dreamer. He loves to be active, but he also has a softer side. He loves animals and nature. His room will have a very nature-inspired vibe to it. When I gave him a design consultation to see what his style was like…(yes, it was the cutest thing ever!) I was so surprised by his taste. This kid has the coolest style! He wanted black and white walls; he leaned towards Mid-century furnishings and Scandinavian decor. His biggest concern was to have a teepee and a place for all his buddies.
So, that’s the plan!
