One Room Challenge: Week 6 Reveal

Ugh, it is safe to say, I was a little in over my head with trying to do two rooms in only 6 weeks.  Jesse told me so, but I didn’t listen.  Especially when we’re doing everything ourselves, and working, and living life in general.  The boys room is pretty much finished, but the girls room still has a lot to be done.  We two more months before our exchange student gets here, so whatever, I’ll finish it before then.  With my day job, I get to put together the plan but hand it off to someone else to implement.  It’s so much more fun that way!

I was feeling pretty great about how the boys room turned out.  It’s super cool and fun, and they already love hanging out up there.  Then I saw this.  O.M.G. That is beautiful.  I kinda don’t wanna show mine now.  But I will.

Here is the boy’s room before… when it was a girl’s room.

And here is the boy’s room now!



And my favorite but flawed area, the toy/wii area.  Flawed because of that bit of black paint that my 3 yr old added.  Ugh, kids!  I mean… they’re a blessing…


As for the girl’s room, here is the before.

And as for the after, well this is the best I can give you right now….

I definitely accomplished the goals I set out to achieve, which is exactly the reason for the mess in the girls room.  My daughter and her friends were in there playing no less that 30 minutes before this pic was taken.

The one room challenge was very hard.  I think I’ll be sticking to kitchens and baths from here on out… and letting someone else put those together!

Come back tomorrow for a new kitchen after photo post!

  1. I dig it! You did much better than I know I’d do in six weeks!
