I am extremely excited and nervous about participating (even as a guest!) in the One Room Challenge™ . I have followed the evolution of rooms within the Challenge for some time and always sighed over how well they come together. See: Making it Lovely or Old Home Love.
In the back of my mind it was always – 6 weeks for a complete overhaul? You’ll never get it together for that. Well – I have decided to banish those negative thoughts and jump into this Challenge as a guest participant to spur me into action.
I have been sitting on a plan for the Attic Bedroom since we moved in this past summer. We were just waiting for Dave to have time to devote to putting in the insulation. Well, the stars aligned and Dave was able to start on it yesterday. Perfect timing for us to commit to the Challenge.
Scary phone photo of the stairs leading up. I did not even see this space until after we bought the house.
ALLLLLLL the stuff the previous owner left behind.
Back in August I posted about my outline for the room and the fact that the girls had come to me with a layout and their color scheme ideas…..SO CUTE!!!!!
As a reminder (or introduction) the upstairs will house Jules (12) and Jane (8). The girls will be sharing ~700 sq ft with their own bathroom. I dropped some info into a room builder to play with layouts and I will start with this:
As always it will evolve over time – BUT the end result will be an upstairs bedroom for the girls. They can’t wait!
Thanks for following along.
