It is time for the reveal of my One Room Challenge!
I am super excited to have this room finished for my family. We LOVE it!
It looks even better in person! I can’t believe I waited so long to do this!
I hope you enjoy seeing our new space.
Remember the Before…
Adding the wood planks to the sides of the mantel changed the entire feel of this room. Before it was dominated by the brick and it sucked up every ounce of light that came in.
All of the trim, walls and bookcases are painted BM Simply White in semi-gloss.
The art came from my husbands grandparents house and his great aunt painted it. The large basket also came from the great aunt.
My son has a collection of wooden boats and my father in law gave him this one for his birthday last year. It is really big and trying to find a place for it has been a challenge. This worked out great!
In the end I ended up using orange fabric. I was shocked at how much I loved it. I normally would never choose this color.
After the planks were installed I knew they need something. I found these simple candle sconce and added the black and white stripe candles for a fun twist. I love them!
One of the things I am really excited about is the fact that there are so many items in this room that have special family meaning. Those silhouettes are my husbands grandparents. The ones in the bookcase are my father in law and my husband. The blue candy dish above was a mother’s day gift from my son a few years ago. Because he knows I love blue and vintage things.
All of the shells in the lamp are from our trips to Pawleys Island, South Carolina.
The rocks were picked up on our honeymoon.
The TV console we built out of lumber and I added the skirt to hide much-needed storage.
Thanks to Linda from Calling It Home for hosting the One room Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!
