The Den: One Room Challenge Reveal

Welcome back to the final week of the One Room Challenge, the reveal! Although the last several weeks have been full of work and little sleep...I have really enjoyed it. And I am over the moon that we have a room "completed" just in time for the holidays. Since we moved in our renovation home in April, we have made changes- some were quick strides and some are like a marathon that take forever. I am thrilled that this room has come together over the past month and we can enjoy this cozy space that made us fall in love with our fixer upper!




 



 


 











 








I will be doing a full recap on the sources, but I wanted to give a quick overview in case you are just now tuning in. This room had excellent bones and character, it just needed some polishing. And the stairs...they were an entire room themselves, but they have improved in a thousand ways. From carpet, to a million staples, to staining the pine and adding completely new railing...I am thrilled over their sleek look and I know they added so much to this room. I spent a lot of time styling the bookshelves- it takes time if you want them to look good. Slipcovers were made for the existing furniture, and fabulous new throw pillows were made by my my Mom. Most of the decor I already owned, and it came together so well in this room. And just for fun, here is a shot of the before:


Thanks again to Linda for hosting this amazing little challenge. And big thanks to my hubby for sticking this thing out and still loving me ;) Last but not least, check out all my friends as they debut their designs here and here

I'm coming right on over, settling into one of those wing backs and grabbing the first bottle of vino from that rack in the hearth. Then we can dish on the trials and joys of an accomplished ORC. Greatest motivator in the world! Love all of the classic touches. Paint is fabulous!
