One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom & Bath {THE REVEAL!!}

Posted on

  Deep breath, deep breath…here we go! Six weeks ago 20 designers and over 200 guest participants took the plunge into the Spring 2017 One Room Challenge. The challenge being- redesign a room in 6 weeks. No problem you say? Well, it’s never without drama and setbacks but I think in the end each person who joins the challenge is thrilled to cross off one room in their house as being done. And all of these beautiful rooms wouldn’t be possible without the organization and support of Linda at Calling It Home. Seriously Linda- where would we all be if you hadn’t started this little challenge of yours??? With a lot of half-finished rooms is where we would be. Ok, here’s the quick background on the rooms I did this round. My daughter turns 9 and decides that she hates pink and wants it out of her bedroom. At the …

One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom and Bath {Week 5}

Posted on

Week 5 of the One Room Challenge is here (insert all the comments about how is it Week 5 already?!?!). So it’s crunch time to get all the last items finished in the participating rooms. And when you start crunching the numbers- there isn’t even a full week left to finish. Because most people will have their rooms photographed by a photographer, which means that you need the room done a few days ahead of the reveal. My room is set to be photographed on Monday. Just a few hours after my shower door and roman shades get installed! Keep all of your fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong with either installation and this room reveal goes off without any hiccups. And just so we are all ready for the reveal next week, let’s take a quick look back on where we started 5 weeks ago. Weeks 1, 2, 3, and …

One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom and Bath {Week 2}

Posted on

You know that saying, “the days are long but the years are short”- I feel like right now the days are short and the weeks are even shorter!! Week 2 of the One Room Challenge is here already, which means its time for me to give y’all an update on my room(s). If you missed my Week 1 post you can check it out here. For this round of the ORC I am making over my 9 year old daughter’s bedroom and bathroom. Let’s talk about some of the furniture choices I made for her bedroom. I really wanted this room to transition with her as she starts to enter these oh so awkward stages of life. Even though she is only 9 I really want the furniture pieces to work when she’s 9, 13, or 16. First up was getting a bed that would fit a growing child. For this I …

One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom and Bath {Week 1}

Posted on

Happy Day, Happy Day- the One Room Challenge is underway!!! A huge thank you to Linda from Calling It Home for not only organizing this massive project but for also thinking enough of the Suburban Bees to invite us back for another round! Tricia hit a home run last Fall with her living room makeover and I hope I can follow her lead and make an amazing room revamp in these next 6 weeks. So let’s get down to what room is receiving this makeover. There were a few candidates that I considered, including our master bathroom, an upstairs bonus room, or my daughter’s bedroom. Each room had pro’s and con’s, and in the end I wanted to get my daughter involved in this project by making her room over and getting her input on some of the major design decisions. My daughter just turned 9, but she’s fairly mature …
