Hey everyone! It’s time for another round of the One Room Challenge. This round I decided to make over my living room. It has been a room I’ve slowly worked on but haven’t done anything major to! It’s the first room you see when you walk into my home so I’m hoping I can give it a little bit of that wow factor! If you are new to the One Room Challenge then let me explain to you what it is. It’s a 6 week room transformation challenge. Throughout the 6 weeks I’ll update you on how the room is coming along. Tons of different people/bloggers participate and create truly amazing spaces! Here are the makeovers I have done in the past:
Bathroom | Guest Room | Gabi’s Nursery | Lucy’s Room
We moved into our home about 3 years ago. The previous owners had lived here for about 17 years. They had done some really nice stuff to the house but it wasn’t our style so we anxiously painted the living room gray. Here is what the room looked like before we moved in:
This room reveal might be one of the biggest projects I have taken on for the One Room Challenge. I have so many things I want to do. I don’t want to do it just half way. All or nothing! For a while we had mismatched furniture and then we bought a couch and bought a chair at my husband’s work function. I then took an old table and turned it into an ottoman. And then I redid it again. (Do you see a pattern with me?!) I added some new curtains, redid a lamp, and added some decorative items to the room. I was happy with the room but not elated. I wanted this room to feel magical. I’m hoping I can achieve that now with this transformation!
Here is what is on our to do list for this challenge:
To Do Checklist:
- Remove carpet
- Add luan to subfloor
- Install new flooring
- Paint woodwork & trim
- Install panel moulding
- Replace couch
- Buy new chairs

- Paint staircase
- Redo lamp

I’d like to thank our sponsors for this room makeover. Without them this room would not have been possible! I feel so fortunate to work with such amazing companies!

I can NOT wait for this room to come together! I’m doing this so that we have a “nice” room in our house and an adult space. It’s going to be hard not to hang out in here all the time with the girls though because I will love it! I love doing room transformations and finally I’m doing one for myself! I can’t wait to share this room with you! Until next week!
