one room challenge - the reveal

The big day has finally arrived - reveal day! Six weeks, 20 bloggers and one room later, my girls' have a new bedroom and I have a new manicure coming my way (catch up on weeks 1-6 of work on the ORC here).

So in the words of Jennifer Grey in Ferris Bueller, 'let's not ruin this with a lot of talk.' Let's get right to the good stuff.

If you follow me on instagram, then you've been getting little sneak peeks for the past few days. Here is where we started.


And six weeks later, here is where we are today.








Learn more about the silhouettes here.





Learn more about the heart artwork here.


Watercolor by Mai Autumn.




Learn more about the vanity here.




Learn more about the dresser here.




And with that I am spent. Happy but spent.

I want to thank all of you for following along and for your encouraging comments and support. I accept this Oscar on behalf of all the....oh wait, that's a different speech.

If you are new, please come back often as this project has actually triggered several others through out the house (I'm sick, I know). And for you regulars, big hugs and kisses to you.

And a big thanks to my friend Linda for including me. My first two cocktails tonight will be in your honor my dear.

Make sure to check out my fellow ORC ladies to see their beautiful spaces as well. It's like Christmas morning I tell ya.

Now about that cocktail...

  6. Girl, you did good. Real good. I need to make sure to keep Wells away from the computer screen or else she's going to start questioning why this girl's room looks pretty and her's is still in a sad state. I love all the color and pattern. Such a happy space for these two girls. I bet they are in love with their new room!

  8. Seriously good, E. Will you adopt me? I'm old enough to mix random martini's out of any juicebox laying around. OK, back to the show....I can't get over your vision and how you brought it to life. That camping trip to Ikea was worth it. This is all so fresh and good...but the branches out of the head make me smile the most.

  62. You've got some extremely lucky girls to have such a beautiful "big girls" room! You knocked it out of the park with all the thoughtful details and splashes of fun and color. In love!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I tell you, I can't think of anything that would make a little girl happier than to wake up to a pink ceiling. My favorite part? It's a toss up between the super fun lampshades and the gorgeous twin beds. You really pulled everything together beautifully from the bedding, to the rug, to the personal art. And then there's Captain.

    This is a good one, Elizabeth. But I'd expect no less from you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. remarkable ....
    your board and room are practically identical.

    great job!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Okay, how many bottles of wine on this project? I am guessing NONE or how else would you have pulled this off in just 6 weeks?! Elizabeth, seriously, I mean you have officially arrived (not that you hadn't before), but this is outstanding. Every single detail. I love, love the dear head with the forsythia (I know that is not right?? but anyway), the yellow rug, the pillows... did you make them all? Every little detail. Did you sleep AT ALL during this project? You need to be for hire like nobody's business. Congratulations!!
