One Room Challenge Reveal

Maybe it's my addictive tendency towards anything home decor-related but give me a good DIY show on HGTV or a fabulous Millionaire Decorators episode and I am glued.  So you can imagine my delight five weeks ago when I first stumbled upon the best DIY blogging sensation, The One Room Challenge.  I spotted this on The Pink Pagoda and from there, my Wednesdays for the next six weeks would never be the same. 

What in the heck is the One Room Challenge? 

The challenge is the master mind of brilliant DIY'er Linda from My Crafty Home Life.   She hand-picks 20 inspirational Home Design bloggers (some interior designers, some just terrific DIY'ers).  They are tasked with the job of redoing one room in their house over the course of a six week time frame.  Each Wednesday, each challenger will post their progress on the make over.  This all leads up to a big reveal on the sixth week. 

Here are the fantastic bloggers I have been following during this time period:

Ya'll, I have been glued to each of these blogs for the past weeks.  It's exciting to see the progress each week.  And, today (WEDNESDAY) is the big final reveal for these talented decorators.  Here's a snapshot of what a few of them have been busy working on.  Please click the links at the bottom of this post to check in on most cases, they include links back to the earlier weeks so you can view progress!

Be sure to check out all of the room reveals...they're sure to be breath-taking!  These ladies have worked super hard, around the clock and countless hours to make this come together.  You'll be amazed at how well these rooms have been able to come together in such a small window of time. 

Lauren - The Cottage Mix
Lindsay - Everything LEB
Barbara - Hodge:Podge
Tiffany - Living Savvy
Jessie - Mix And Chic
Danylle - Nana Moon
Jennifer - The Pink Pagoda
Emily - Rue de Emily
Lindsay - Sadie + Stella
Jessie- Mix and Chic

 Be warned, you'll have access to links that show you progress throughout the entire 6 weeks--all at your finger tips. That's like watching a MARATHON of DIY shows back to back. What more could you ask for!  Enjoy!

Thanks for the shoutout and mentioning me twice! lol. You are the best!

Oh, by the way, I just removed the old pictures of my master bedroom for the ORC and replaced them with new better pictures, taken by my hubby. My hubby said the old photos were too amateurish. I couldn't agree more! :)

Thanks for following along, Heather!
