One Room Challenge: Week One Introduction

Yes, I'm back to participate in my second One Room Challenge.  You know, the one where twenty DIY and design bloggers are given one room and six weeks to show what they can do.

Can I get a whoohoo!
And a glass of wine.

This time it could get a little crazy up in here since we're moving in May.  I've been put on strict instructions not to bring anything else into this house that has to be packed up and moved in a few weeks.  So let's see, nothing permanent and nothing too specific to this house and nothing too expensive.

Are you still with me?

Well you should be because y'all know I work best under pressure and I promise not to do anything lame just because my husband and my current housing situation required some silly ground rules.   

Want to know which room is the lucky winner of my all encompassing attention and design skills?  Me too.

I thought it would be really fun to let y'all take a VOTE and choose which room I'm going to makeover for the One Room Challenge.  You have two options my lovelies.  The winning room will be announced next Wednesday along with my plan of attack!

Which one do you pick?
Option # 1

Option #2
You can view the final results of my first One Room Challenge here
And if you're new here, click on the links below to get all caught up.


And as always, be sure to check out the other lovelies participating in this series.  I promise they don't disappoint.

  3. I have loved that master bedroom plan of yours, ever since I laid eyes on it. Can you really stick to all those silly rules your husband laid out? Can't wait to see which one wins.

  11. Both inspiration boards are great. You are very brave doing this just before moving.

  12. I love the master bedroom but I think that little girls room is sophisticated and unique - not your typical cotton candy kid's room.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I say master so that when you move you'll have a new retreat ready to go! That board has always been one of my favorites.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Mmm this is a tough one, love them both! (I know I'm not helping!)

  15. I love the little girl room! And guess what? I own that second bird print-it's one of two that I have in my family room, a great HG's find YEARS ago that I surprisingly still love (things don't usually stick around too long around here!)-I don't think my friends have ever liked them, but oh well, I do!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oooh, tough! I can't resist a little leopard ~ I vote little girl room!

  21. Could I possibly join in on this one room challenge? I am just one coat of primer started on my kitchen overhaul, and could seriously use the deadline and motivation to get er done in 6 weeks!

    ReplyDelete
  22. oh my lord, you are DARING on many fronts...not only are you LETTING US VOTE on the room...you're also attempting this before moving in May! girlfriend, you're going to need serious wine! I absolutely love both boards! But I'll vote for the Master b/c I think you owe it to yourself to enjoy your space until may!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Tough decision! I vote little girl's room. Either way I can't wait to follow along!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Little girl's room! That mockup is ADORBS!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh, wow, what a tough decision. Both those boards are amazing! Being practical, I would say choose whichever one requires buying fewer new pieces. Boring right? If all things are equal though, I would say master. I will warn you, though, if you choose little girl's room, depending on what size you need that rug, it may be on backorder (if you already have it, then obviously not an issue). I tried to order it in a 5x8 on different online sites and they both had it on backorder from Safavieh until mid-June. Uggh. I chose a different rug because of that for my office.

    Cannot wait to see what you do!!

    1. I'm kicking myself for not ordering it last fall when I would go online stalk it every day. They do have a square version still available but not sure how I feel about that...

  26. I vote for the master bedroom. Both look like they'd be gorgeous though.

  27. Everyone always loves a master bedroom makeover... It seems to be the most difficult room to decorate! So I vote master. Good luck to you!

  30. Do them BOTH!! I know, we can't do two projects, but maybe you can show us the other room on Tuesday. Double the work is better than one- especially when you are in the midst of moving:) Bring on the jug-o-wine! xo, Kathleen

  37. How about BOTH??? Just kidding. I can't decide...both have beautiful personalities.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love both -- but I vote master bedroom...only bc you created a mood board that is almost identical to what I want to do in our room! So you do it first, and I can see and copy! :)

  43. Oh man hard choice- both are great spaces! I vote little girls room, its much easier to do fun thigs for a kid on the fly and who doesnt love leopard and pink.

    I'd save your master for the new house when you can really plan and buy what you love :)

    ReplyDelete

  48. Hard to choose...both would be great. I guess if I had to pick one I would say do the little girls room because I have a little boy and my girls are teenagers. I would love to see the master bedroom too...after you move!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Can;t wait to see which room you decide on! Love that master paint color.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just don't know! Both would be great! I moved b.t.w., but not to Richmond (plans fell through)...another apt in NYC. Thanks again for your advice. Can't wait to see what you do here!

  56. Master bedroom, pllleeeaaasssee! I'm pretty sure we all have a Master bedroom, but not all of us have Little Girl's rooms. Sigh..............

    ReplyDelete
  57. I think you should do your master! Love the little girls room, too though. I designed a similar room for a friend of mine's 6 year old daughter. Can't wait to see what you choose!

    ReplyDelete
  58. This is so hard!!! I am going to go with the master since I need some ideas for ours.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Well crap.... I was going to say the master, and then I saw your plans for Wells' room. I guess master because that's always a room I struggle with and I'd love to see your ideas.
