Can you believe it’s the final reveal of the One Room Challenge?!?! I also can’t believe that I am completing my 6th challenge!! I always get so excited right before the bi-annual One Room Challenge begins because it means another space I get to redo! My husband doesn’t always agree with me but always loves the end result! 🙂 Here are the previous rooms I have done:
Everything got done on our checklist! I can’t believe it! Looking back at the before photos really make me wonder why it took so long to make over this room! It was awful!
There were a lot of steps in making over this room! One of my favorite changes (who am I kidding? I love them all!) is our new fan. We installed the Anderson Fan by Stile. I love how the fan is hidden within the light and the lines really go with the masculine yet feminine style for our room!
The drapes also added another dimension to this room! I love every drape I have ever gotten from Carousel Designs and these don’t disappoint! I also had a matching pillow made through their website!
Our new flooring really contributed towards the finished look to our gym/guest room! We went with.
With the help of the HomeRight PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller we painted the walls with Sherwin-Williams Dovetail. And my absolute favorite part of the room was made possible by RYOBI and Wayfair. We built the murphy bed with the help of our RYOBI Miter Saw and Stand, RYOBI Orbit Sander, RYOBI Table Saw, RYOBI Drill and RYOBI Angled Nailer. We then attached the Athea Standard Bookcases to each side and left one shelf off and installed the Aidan 1-Light Swing Arm Lamp on each shelf. Stay tuned for a complete tutorial on how we made our murphy bed!
Alright, you ready for some photo overload?!
Here’s a little-hidden storage… And we are from Minnesota so it’s fitting we use a hockey stick as decor! Ha!
Last but not least here is some before and afters for you….slide from left to right.
Well, I can’t believe my 6th One Room Challenge is finished! Don’t forget to follow along with the featured designers as well as the guest participants! Stay tuned for some detailed tutorials for projects in this room! Thanks so much for stopping by and happy Wednesday!

I’m a Minnesotan too! Grew up in Chanhassen! Your room is perfect. That murphy bed is genius! Nice work getting it all done!
Thank you so much, Jess!! Minnesotans are the best! 🙂
I can’t believe you built a Murphy bed during the challenge! When we built ours it took forever. Isn’t it the best 9 square foot guest room ever?
I love that fan and wish I discovered that for my house. Your multi use room turned out awesome!
Thank you so much, Toni! I was very surprised and how quickly it took to build the bed. I want to do another one in our other guest room! I love how you said the best 9 square foot guest room! Haha that’s great!
Your room looks great!! Love the Murphy bed and storage and all your motivational artwork! It is such a functional space now!! That is a workout room I would love working out in!! Great job and congratulations on a beautiful makeover!!
Thank you so much, Susanne! I’m hoping I can get my butt off the couch and work out in this room now!! It’s so much more pleasing to look at than what it was before!

Holy crap Ruthie. That murphy bed is awesome!!! Way to make great use of the space! I want one of these in our basement room now!! Fall ORC?? Maybe if you come make it for me.
Thanks!! My husband and I definitely surprised ourselves with the murphy bed! Seeing what your Dad has done with your outdoor space he could easily build this murphy bed! I’m going to put a tutorial up for it in the next couple weeks!
