I’m finally getting to play a long! For the past several years I’ve had to sit back and read with envy each time Calling It Home hosted the 6 week challenge, because I didn’t have a blog. Well, now that I have a blog, I don’t really have a room in my house I’m ready to work on. So, what did I do? I called on my ole’ trusty friend Paige, and talked her into working on her formal
dining living. For the next 6 weeks, instead of bringing you a Window to the Wall Wednesday post, I’m going to be linking up and sharing my One Room Challenge on Thursdays.
So, here is what we are working with. This is a new build house and the formal dining is the first room as you walk in the front door. The homeowners (my bff Paige) decided they will never use a formal dining room, so we are turning the space into a nice “sitting/living” room. As if they will use that either, but the house needs a warm and welcoming space to walk into.
Walk with me through the space – gray walls, curved doorways, beautiful staircase and great windows. That’s about it though. It’s currently just a holding place for a few mismatched furniture pieces and accessories that didn’t have a home when they moved in. And yes, three little girls live here as you can see through the arches!
So here’s the plan. As much as it pains Paige to go all neutral – I’m making her. I’ve promised her we can add some funky pillows and accessories to brighten it up. We are going “Grown Up Chic.”
I just hit submit on the wallpaper order and the installer has been lined up, but thats about it. I can’t wait to see this room transformed and hopefully this challenge will light a fire under us to finish! Come back next week to discuss more of the pieces and to see if the wallpaper has actually arrived!
Make sure to check out all the other fantastic blogs linking up for this challenge and keep up with their progress the next six weeks. It’s going to be so much fun!
