One Room Challenge ... The Finale!!


Week 6 ... The Finale!  It's finally here!!!  Six weeks of dirt, pollen and a dingy old porch is behind me!  I am so excited about this space and will be having coffee here this morning!  Before revealing the massive picture overload I must thank Linda at Calling it Home.  I am so thankful she opened this up to Linking partners again this year.  I absolutely love how this challenge has pushed me to completely transform not one, but two spaces in our home.  I am more than thrilled with the results.  You are amazing Linda and I have two incredible spaces thanks to you!!!  xo

Before we get to the after ... we need to go back to the beginning!

Here is my inspiration photo ... 


This amazing space from Mary McDonald started the whole design.  I loved the blue and white mixed with natural bamboo.  The show stopping sofa with amazing details.  The green of the yard behind.  Perfection. 

And my porch before ... 


And here we go.  Picture overload beyond.  Here you go.

THE AFTER ... 



















 



And the table on the lower part of the deck ... 







We are absolutely in love with our new spaces.  The colors are perfect for us and the blue and white is so fresh and happy!  I am soooo over the moon with the screened area ... I absolutely can not believe how much it has changed!!  I am so happy with the floor and the sofa! 

Thank you for following along these last six weeks.  There was a time during week 4 when the space wasn't painted and I realized I was unable to do it myself that I panicked.  Your comments and instagram love have kept me going!  I read every single one and love them all!!!  You are the best readers and I am one lucky girl to have you!!!
