Thinking Ahead for The One Room Challenge

Sunday, February 2, 2014

Are you planning to link up to Linda's next One Room Challenge event?  It kicks off on April 3, and for 6 consecutive Thursdays the blogosphere with be up to its elbows in progress reports and DIY victories.  If you didn't get a chance to participate in the last ORC Link party, I highly recommend it.  Participating in The One Room Challenge is truly the most exhilarating, stressful, and exciting things I've done since I started blogging.

If you check in on my blog from time to time then you already know that my house (aka Project Dollhouse) is a work in progress.  We're doing mostly cosmetic changes, but even these types of projects can be costly and time consuming.   I have to admit that the One Room Challenge has been instrumental in bringing a few of my rooms to completion.

In the first ORC I made over my family room.



And in the second One Room Challenge I made over my sweet little kitchen:




So what do I have my sights set on for this round of the ORC?  My living room and dining room. They're open to each other and so this ORC will be a 2-fer.

This shot was taken before we even moved in.  We are still enjoying those plywood sub floors only now this space is cluttered with moving boxes filled with all the stuff that goes into these rooms once they get done. It's the perfect candidate for an ORC intervention.

And here's a teeny tiny sneak peak. There will be blue walls.  Don't hate because I painted.  Look at the plywood sub floors.  There is plenty left to do to bring this project to completion.

So who's with me?  Will you be linking up for the next One Room Challenge?  It will be upon us sooner than you think!!

Love the wall color! The thought of another ORC is just the push I need to get out of the winter blahs and start working on my house again!

Yay! I'm always loving your posts and this does not disappoint! I have loved every room you've done and can't wait to see the new transformation in your doll house. The best thing about the ORC is it gives everyone the shot of B12 to get it done! Your the most creative, stylish, vintage loving, hip designer out there. So grateful for your blog.

I know I should be planning away but I still haven't decided if I am ready for another one yet.

Definitely, but I'm not tackling a huge project like you are!!! I'm so excited, you are an excellent decorator Kim and I bet these rooms will be fabulous!!! Why is April taking so long? I'll follow along your progress for sure. As for me, I'm torn between the Kids bathroom, Dining room and my guestroom!!! But for sure, I'll join!

Ooh, I can't wait to see what you do. That blue is fab. Honestly, I don't know if my heart can take another ORC so soon (especially since the next room on my never-ending list is my kitchen!). I may have to sit this one out and live vicariously through you and the other participants.
