Today is the beginning of one of the most exciting events in blogland, the One Room Challenge. If you’re new to the One Room Challenge, let me fill you in on the details. The One Room Challenge is a bi-annual event that challenges both featured designers and guest participants (that’s me!) to transform a space in only 8 weeks.
Years ago, before Sincerely, Sweetpea even existed, I came across the One Room Challenge reading blogs like Dimples and Tangles and Style Your Senses. I followed their progress, week by week, looking forward to reveal day as if it was Christmas morning. Since then, I’ve wanted to participate, but the timing was always off. Now, we’ve been in our apartment for a few months and I’m ready to start putting my stamp on it and make it feel more like our own. What better way to do that than jump into an 8 week challenge??
During the next 8 weeks, I’ll be tackling a number of projects as I transform our master bedroom and closet from basic, rental chic to a preppy, peaceful retreat. Here’s a look at the before:
A special thanks to Linda, for putting together the One Room Challenge and creating a space for bloggers to collaborate, encourage one another, express our creativity, and passion for interior design. And thank you to the One Room Challenge Media Partner, Better Homes and Gardens.
Check back here next Thursday to see my design plan. See what the other bloggers are up to here.
