One Room Challenge - Week One

I've been blogging long enough to know about Linda's One Room Challenge and I thought it high time I give this "complete a room in six weeks" thing a try.  Hopefully, this will give me the kick in the you know what to complete our guest room.

If you follow me, then you probably remember my guest room inspiration, see below.  If you're new, welcome!

I had this inspiration right before the summer, but then summer happened and I've done nothing.  Zero.  Zilch.  Nada.

So, if Linda's One Room Challenge, can't kick this room into shape, I honestly don't know what can.


This room not only serves as our guest room, but also as my office.  I need to make this space not only pretty, but also functional.  So, no more papers, fabric, magazines lying all over the floor or as my little E likes to refer to this space as the 'messy room'.

This is what this room looked like when we bought the house almost two years ago.

BEFORE:


Right BEFORE the room got a fresh coat of white paint:


Over the next six weeks, I'll be sharing my design plan and progress every Thursday here on the blog and with updates on IG.  This weekend, I will attempt to make my the headboard!  So stay tuned!

I hope you follow along and please check out the other participants here!
