Oh doesn't everyone love a good reveal? Well, today's the big day - the One Room Challenge Reveal Finale! Without further adieu...
Before... when I first moved into my apartment and it was nothing but a plain white box...
After!... here it is today - our music room, supply/storage central, and guest bedroom for the brave of heart...
Here's an in between shot of where I started at the beginning of the One Room Challenge.
Tim and I made a LOT of progress, no?
We added string art to the big bare wall and rearranged furniture slightly to make the room feel more spacious.
We hacked a huuge Ikea Expedit for much more stylish storage that really fit our needs.
We got a new rug from Ikea (after destroying our old one) that I'm madly in love with, which adds a ton of pattern to an otherwise dull room.
But the truth? We're not finished. Drats. Challenge fail. See that one little wood door on the Expedit? Yep, that was a bigger plan. Missing the curtains I mentioned in an earlier post? Yep, that was a bigger plan. The reality is, life got bigger than our plans were and crazy unforeseen obstacles cut us short. It's a looooong story, so I'm sharing it on the blog tomorrow. For now, let's just enjoy the progress we did make! I think it looks a lot better!!
A HUGE thanks to Linda from My Crafty Home Life for arranging this shindig - it's one of the hardest but coolest things I've done. Today is the big day, so don't forget to check the results from the other challengers. Reveals wheeee!
