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 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 & 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 …

I’m so excited to be back on the blog today sharing some great news! We’ve been taking a little hiatus from the blog and I’ve missed all of you. But I’m back here today to let you know that we are taking part in the One Room Challenge again this round as an invited designer! Quick recap- the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda at Calling It Home gives us 6 weeks to make over a room and we’ll blog about our progress and challenges each of those 6 weeks. It’s such an amazing event that brings an abundance of design inspiration and camaraderie among the home blogging world. And I can’t wait to take on the challenge again- but you’ll have to wait until next week to find out what room I’m taking on for the One Room Challenge! Tricia and I feel almost like senior students in the college of …

2017 design resolutions {Tricia}

Posted on

  Happy New Year’s to all – hope you all enjoyed your holidays! “What?!?” you say  “the holidays are like so last year!” I know, I know, I’m late to the game – blame it on the kids. Our school district likes to torture parents by giving the kids an extra long winter break. Our kids only went back to school yesterday! I couldn’t move on to embracing the fresh start of 2017 while trying to keep 3 kids entertained and trying to keep the clutter even partially contained so I’m just now checking in with my 2017 design resolutions! Erin & I took a break from the blog to enjoy all that downtime with our families. Mr. Man & I went for low key this year: going nowhere & spending lots of time together and with the kids, a little time on the slopes, a few fun parties with friends. many, many movies, …
