This post is a little different from most of my posts… instead of showing off tons of pretty pictures this week I’ll be showing off the before photos! 17 Room Makeover’s to Inspire You… in the before stages!
This month I’m participating in the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling it Home which is basically spending 6 weeks to completely transform one room of your home! Six short weeks y’all. Six weeks.
As of now we’re on week two so everyone’s just getting started… demo, picking sofa’s, ordering rugs. The whole nine yards.
It’s the most exciting part of the entire makeover! All the anticipation of what could be. The best part of the One Room Challenge is there’s so many participants. Typically over 300 people join together to make over one room in their homes… that’s kind of cool!
Of course, I’m a sucker for anything that brings a community together and this home decor blogging community is kind of the best. So I’ve gathered up all of the fantastic makeover’s who linked up at last weeks Welcome Home Wednesday Link Party (and a couple of the girls I’ve been going through the Challenge with!) to share the progress!
So click on each photo to check out the inspiration, the progress and how each rooms coming along!
Y’all might notice my red and green Christmas kitchen… but it’s definitely not red and green now! Actually the red is still there (that’s week 4) but it looks so different already! I smile everytime I even look in that direction. I can’t wait until the rest of the kitchen is finished!
This little girls room? Wallpaper to die for! You have to check it out. It’s both whimsical and sophisticated which is perfect for a little girl who will be a young women (far too soon!). Of course, wall paper is a pain in the rear so I definitely appreciate the time that this mama put into this little room!
This little laundry room already has new flooring and paint on the walls… y’all you don’t even understand how amazing the transformation already is! You have to pop over and see how it looked last week, you’ll be as amazed as I am. I really can’t wait on this one!
Two words: gorgeous rug! This gal’s mood board shows the most amazing rug for under her new dining room table… and this weeks progress photos show the rug has arrived! Rolled up and chilling in the corner just waiting for the grand reveal. I can’t wait!
I think I have a definite thing for rugs (although I already knew that seeing as I have four rugs in my home and carpet in almost every room! Hey rugs on top of carpet is a thing… pattern is awesome y’all). Either way I am in love with the gorgeous blue and cream carpet going down in this room… not to mention the shiplap on either side of the fireplace. *Swoon*
This is a complete bathroom gut job. I am so impressed! Decorating is one thing… a rug here, a decorative cow there… but actually re-imagining the function of a room? That’s a whole different ballgame! I love love love doing both but just take a look at this room?! No walls, no floor, plumbing and electrical are being completely re-worked. This is going to be a completely different room in four short weeks.
This baby grand piano has been moved to the other side of the room which looks a-m-a-z-ing with a new coat of white paint! It’s remarkable what a coat of new paint can do for a room. If that’s not enough just check out the new lamp… *swoon*.
Look. at. all. that. drywall.
This closet has been completely ripped apart… 10 bags of drywall carnage later and you wouldn’t even recognize the space. New drywall will do that to a space. I can’t wait to see what this room looks like with clothes and lighting in place… eek!
Before we go I’m going to leave you with two rooms that are finished! I mean just take a look at this laundry room makeover! I am slightly obsessed with the Wash and Dry chalkboard over the sink!
Plus that teal is kind of amazing.
