Let the Challenge begin!
I'm not sure how I got on the list, but I'm thankful to be included with these 19 talented
bloggers, again! We have 6 weeks to makeover a room and we'll be posting our progress
every Wednesday until the final reveal. A huge thank you to the brilliance behind the ORC,
Linda @ Calling it Home, and to Jennifer @ The Pink Pagoda for our banner below.
I'll be making over our Master Bedroom, if you don't know we live in a 1938
cottage style home. Charm has it's drawbacks, for one our bedroom is 13' x 11'!
Add two doors, a closet, a bay window and a radiator and you barely have room
for a bed ~ a challenge in itself!
My goal is to make the most of the space we have, include elements to give the illusion
of a larger
luxurious master suite space, use my favorite Craigslist and Ikea finds to keep
it budget friendly, and of course, include lots of DIYs! :) It's been years since I've done
anything to it, so I'll just get to the loveliness...
Craigslist Photo - I just sold the bed The windows and radiator, perfect for drapes :)
Opposite side of room - Closet door and door to hallway
The second door.
My love for David Hicks' La Fiorentina pattern lives on, after my big diy disaster in
the last challenge I've figured out a way to include it... :)
My favorite style is antique mixed with a modern vibe...
An Ikea Rast Hack is in order...
That's all I'm spilling for now, see you next Wednesday!
