Next up "The One Room Challenge" Revel


Wow!  I cannot believe that the One Room Challenge Reveal is Here!!! Where did the six weeks go?  I really want to thank Linda from My Crafty Home and Jennifer fro The Pink Pagoda for asking me to participate!  It has been so much fun!  I feel like I made some really great friends from doing the challenge. What a neat group of women! In case you are just now tuning in, here is a list of all the participates:


It has been so much fun, I really hate to see it end but hopefully I will get asked back for the next challenge!  Now onto my reveal!  I wish my pictures were better, but I didn't have my good camera with me and I haven't had the opportunity to drive back, so you'll have to forgive me! If you are just now coming to the party, click on week four, it has links to all the other weeks, to catch you up on all the fun we have been having doing the challenge!


First,lets look back at where we started....




In progress....


The final results!!! Sorry the lamps are on!  See how nicely those cabinets look painted?  I told the client that I wanted her to paint her ceilings light blue when she paints again!  Benjamin Moore Paladium blue would be there perfect color for her.


The client had the metal table to the right of the sofa in 
her third floor so we swiped it for the family room!
Yes, we chose the blue velvet sofa!!! Isn't it yummy?



I think the big mirror is perfect over it, don't you?
These pics are a little distorted.  That is an 87" sofa but it doesn't 
look like it in these pictures!


The rug is perfect with the fabrics and I 
love the wooden blinds instead of drapery.
They add an aire of informality and warmth
to the room.  



 Bird's eye view of the room.  
(No, I am not a photographer)


Photo of the breakfast room with the handmade african baskets. 
Those chairs were moved from her dining room. Also, wooden blinds were added here to replace the white blinds from above.



As I said, I am sorry these pics aren't better but I think you get a pretty good understanding of the transformation that took place in a few weeks here. 
I hope you enjoyed following me on the One Room Challenge as much as I enjoyed participating!  Don't forget to check in with the others to see their
finial reveals as well.  Have a happy Wednesday!
