One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom and Bath {Week 3}

Posted on

For all of you rolling out of bed right now, let me tell you it’s Wednesday. Which means it’s time to check in on the One Room Challenge! And this week is Week 3, which I’ll do the math for you is the half-way point of the 6 week challenge!!! And whew, those three weeks have flown by!!! But there has been so much progress in my daughter’s bedroom and bathroom that unless a total catastrophe happens I should be able to complete the room ahead of schedule. So if anyone is doing the One Room Challenge and needs help (and lives in a warm, tropical location) you can fly me in and I’ll come paint walls or sew pillows for you. But that’s about where my handy skills end. Ok, let’s talk about some of the fabulous items that have arrived on my doorstep the past couple of weeks. …

One Room Challenge Fall 2016 {Week Five}

Posted on

Welcome everyone and thanks for stopping by! If you’re new here let me introduce myself: I’m Tricia – one half of the duo behind Suburban B’s. Erin and I blog about all things suburban and how we’re transforming our builder spec homes into spaces we love. This is Week Five of the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda of Calling It Home. Twenty designers have just six weeks to completely transform a room! We are now in full on crunch mode. You know like in college when you realize tomorrow’s is that accounting final you’ve been dreading and there’s six more chapters on the exam than you though there were. Yeah, yikes! There’s just one week left before the big Reveal and I know it’s going to be the shortest week ever and I still have one hell of a laundry list of things to do. If you need a recap of what’s already happened …

One Room Challenge Fall 2016 {week four}

Posted on

And just like that we’re on to Week Four of the One Room Challenge. Thanks once again to Linda from Calling It Home for inviting Erin and I along for this crazy ride! Even a month into it we’re still beyond thrilled to be included with the other nineteen immensely talented designers. With Week Four I’m feeling like I turned a corner and things are visibly starting to come together. If you missed out on the action over the last few weeks you can catch up here: WEEK ONE WEEK TWO WEEK THREE  One of the best changes this week is that the mantel wall no longer looks like a bundle of 2 x 4’s! I’ve got actual drywall up! My friendly neighborhood drywaller took care of that. Bob the drywaller literally lives down the street and sees it as his duty to keep the walls in our neighborhood looking good – …

One Room Challenge Fall 2016 {week three}

Posted on

If you’re here for the first time – Welcome! and if you’re already a reader of Suburban B’s – Welcome back! It’s Week Three of the One Room Challenge and what’s tough about this week is that things always seem to get real and really scary. As in – “Can I really pull it all together in time?” Right now it’s that whole two steps forward and one mighty big step backwards phase with a deadline staring me down. For today’s progress report I’ve got the good, the bad and some seriously ugly to share with you. Oh and I do have a special treat to share too; after all it is almost Halloween! Here’s what happened this week. Let’s start with the good because that’s always the prettiest way to start. Kelli Kroneberger put the finishing touches on my painting for over the mantle. Here’s the painting all set to meet my One Room Challenge. Kelli’ll …

Posted on

Welcome everyone and thanks for stopping by! If you’re new here I’m Tricia – one half of the duo behind Suburban B’s. Erin and I blog about all things suburban and how we’re transforming our builder spec homes into spaces we love. This is week two of the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda of Calling It Home. Twenty designers have just six weeks to completely transform a room. Reveal Day is four short weeks away and there is a lot to get done before then! Week Two did not conforming to my grand plan. And just to remind you – here’s the grand plan: Not only am I revamping the family room but I’m also taking on the kitchen & the breakfast nook to keep things really exciting! If you missed Week One where I laid out my plan for the spaces you can check it all out here. This is how this week went: …
