One Room Challenge || Spring Reveal

It is here ... it is really here.  I say it every single time a One Room Challenge ends and it holds true every single time.  It feels like Christmas morning!!  Six weeks of hard work, more problems than I care to discuss, a ton of hard work, and the support of every single person close to me.  The room is complete and I can not wait to show you each and every amazing photo.  I love this room so much, probably more than I should.  I can honestly say it is my favorite One Room Challenge transformation and in a few moments you will see why.  The change is incredible if I do say so myself!

Today is the day I have been working toward for six weeks, the day the den is shown in her newly transformed 2016 self.  I have worked with amazing sponsors and I am incredibly grateful to Linda of Calling it Home for asking me to be a part of this fabulous round.  The lineup this round was so fantastic and I can not wait to read each and every reveal of the other 19 invited guests and the more than 200 participating linking participants.  I mean ... how exciting is today?

Let's chat quickly about the journey.  When I began six weeks ago I started with a 1982 Georgian wood paneled den.  The wood was gorgeous and we had happily lived with it for 12 years but both the Hubs and I were ready for a change.  The judges paneling created a cozy space in the winter but other times of the year left us with a dark room always needing at least two more lamps.  It was time for a change ... and we decided the change would be a big one.

Before ...

And the plan for transforming the room ...  


White walls, a pink ceiling, tons of color and a fabulous green velvet sofa.  My vision came true in the best way possible.  I honestly didn't know how much I would fall in love with a white room.  If you told me I would be swooning over a white room I would have giggled and said ... I don't think so. I would have been very, very wrong.  I am absolutely thrilled with the final results.  Every single morning that I walk downstairs and round the corner is incredible.  The bright white room is the perfect greeting to start my day.  I know, I know I am stalling but you will forgive me in just a minute.  #pinkyswear

And the after ... our brand new den!

You can catch up here -
Week 1 ... Before 

I was beyond blessed to work with our incredible sponsors - 

I also had the privilege of working with these amazing companies - 

Photos by the incredible Christina Wedge who never worked so hard!

Thank you Linda for creating the One Room Challenge. You work so incredibly hard for each and every one of us that are privileged to participate.  I have six amazing spaces in my home that I can thank you for helping me and encouraging me to create.  Our house is so much more a home and we have you to thank for that!

Thank you House Beautiful Magazine.   It has been a pleasure creating this space with your amazing magazine as the first media sponsor.  I have loved and read House Beautiful for many years and this was truly a dream come true to design a space featured on both the House Beautiful website and Instagram.  No pinching please ... I don't want to wake up!  

If you need me the next few days I will be glued to my computer reading each journey of the other 19 participants.  After week 1 I lost the time to read the updates and I can not wait to dive in and read from beginning to end!  Make sure you do the same ... you don't want to miss out on any of this incredible eye candy and design inspiration!!  And then I will be diving into the more than 240 linking participants.  Can we just discuss this fabulous fact?  Bam ... that is a lot of changed rooms!!

If I missed a source let me know in the comments!  I will be soaking up the new den in my jams today reading every single update from each and every participant.  I truly can not wait!!
