One Room Challenge Spring 2017 {Week One}: And Here we go Again…

Well my friends, here we go again…

I can’t believe it, but the Spring 2017 One Room Challenge is upon us!

And I couldn’t be more excited!!!

Having taken on this challenge four times now, completely making over four rooms in our home from top to bottom…


We know darn well the craziness we’re signing on for.

The overwhelming stress that comes with renovating an entire room in just six weeks time.

But, here’s the thing I keep coming back to – this One Room Challenge is overflowing with support from so many other people just as crazy and overwhelmed as we are. It’s an incredible feeling to not only make it through this challenge alive, but to have another room in our home completely and totally finished.

Not to mention, we’ve got some AHHHHHHMAZING brands we’ve partnered with to create a design so gorgeous that I have to pinch myself to make sure it’s all real.

So, before I get into all of the wonderful things we have planned for this space, let’s just take a quick peek at which room we chose to take on.

Welcome to our main floor powder room my friends…

ORC Powder Room - Before

With a bizarre mix of materials that truly spans decades of the most awful design elements, this room has been crying for a makeover since the day we moved into it!

As much as I am wishing away every inch of this ugly space, the part I really hate most of all is this door that oh so conveniently opens right into the path of the back door in our mudroom – I swear it is always, always in the way!

So, I bet you’re wondering now what we’ve got planned for the space. Well my friends, for that you’ll just have to wait until next week (ha, you’re welcome!).

I’ll tell you, we have to be absolutely mad taking on another bathroom space in just six week’s time (check out our main bathroom reveal here), but friends, if we can pull this all off, oh my goodness, it’ll be SO worth it!

Follow along with our six week renovation progress:

  1. Kristi, I am so excited to have you back in ORC and that you’re doing a bathroom too! I’m always amazed at your major DIY’s and after seeing what you did on the last bathroom, I know this will be beautiful! Let’s do this my friend! XOXO, Sarah

  2. So excited to see what you are coming up with!!! We have no doubt it’s going to be beautiful, as always 🙂

    1. Thank you so, so much Pamela! You just choose to take part and link up your progress each week to the weekly link party each Thursday. She runs one each Spring (April-May) and Fall (October-November), so you’ve got a bit of time to gear up for each one. Would love to see you join!

  3. The best part about making over small spaces like this is that simple differences make drastic impacts. Can not wait to see what you have planned for this space. I will be on the edge of my seat till then!

I can't wait to hear your thoughts?
