New Farm Table for the Dining Room

We hardly eat at our dining room table. We're either on different lunch hours or just plop in front of the tv for dinner to watch the Office. Partly because it's just us two, but mostly because the table is usually covered with stuff. And since it is so small, it doesn't take much to  cover it up! But this weekend, we moved in a big, beautiful farm table.

One Room Challenge | Week 4: Painted Ceiling Fan

Yesterday we revealed our Spring Makeover space #2 we completed this weekend, and needless to say that's where all our time went this weekend. So it'll be a super short post today guys, but you know how it goes! We've had this fan base sitting on the guest room ceiling since we moved in with no blades and terrible brass colors. Week 4 of the One Room Challenge gave me the motivation I needed to finally take it down and paint everything.

Small Closet Gets A 24 Hour Makeover For Less Than $700

Back in February, we polled our readers for spaces to makeover during the spring. It was our first time renovating someone else's space, so we took our time picking two we knew could be tackle by ourselves and within the spring timeline. This small closet rose to the top with weird/small dimensions but incredibly important function that obviously not being used in the best way. And the best part... we completed it in under 24 hours! (not counting sleeping hours)

One Room Challenge | Week 3: Making a Hard Wired Sconce into a Plug-In

Everyone participating in the One Room Challenge during week 3 starts to paint, install, construct their rooms, whereas I always drag my feet. I have tons of ideas and are usually hesitant to start something that will completely change the room - thus, my last minute decision on doing board and batten on my Stories. So in lieu of a super room transforming post (hopefully that'll be next week), I rewired this swing arm sconce I bought last year. Living in a house built in the 60's has is advantages, but good wiring is not one of them. Instead of messing with hardwiring this guy to the wall, I decided to turn it into a plug-in with an in line switch. By not hard wiring guests won't have to get out of bed to turn the light off, the switch will be right next to them. Now let's show you how I did it!

One Room Challenge | Week 2: The Mood Board and Plans

Week 2 of the One Room Challenge is always the most difficult for me because it's the planning week. Normally I have a general idea on which direction to take my ORC spaces, but this time was not the same. I'm to the point in my Instagram journey where I've found a lot of great (mostly professional) designers that I follow - meaning I get tons of inspiration every. single. time. I'm on the Gram. I got to the point on Monday where I just had inspiration overload and had to stop looking at other spaces.

One Room Challenge | Week 1: Guest Bedroom Befores

I can't believe it's been a year since our laundry room makeover and 5 months since the home office! It's spring time and the One Room Challenge has rolled around again. I had a hard time deciding if I was going to do this challenge or not, and really only made a decision last night. Since I have a busy spring and am doing two other spaces outside of my house I was afraid I wouldn't have enough time to put into this round. But after thinking about it, I realized one of the spaces I'm almost finished with and the other I'm going to knock out in one weekend. And this challenge really give me motivation to better my own spaces. So let's do it!
