This is it. It’s the last week of the six week One Room Challenge. I’m participating as a linking participant. Click here to see Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4 and Week 5 . A big thanks to Linda at Calling it Home for organizing and hosting this event every six months. Click here to see the One Room Challenge participants and here to see my fellow linking participants.
My initial plan was to renovate our newly bought townhouse that we plan to rent as an executive/vacation rental in just six weeks. Since we just took possession of the townhouse on October 20th (a little over two weeks ago) this has been a CHALLENGE. Then, once we took possession, my husband decided we should really update the Kitchen, so that added to the challenge. So I’m not revealing the Kitchen or any of the main level, because updating the kitchen meant changing it’s flooring which affected the rest of that level too. My plan is to keep posting updates every Thursday so those of you who can’t sleep at night because you’re dying to find out how it’s progressing will be able to check in weekly for your townhouse fix.
One thing that might hamper my efforts is that I had a call from a Realtor two days ago. She had two clients interested in a two bedroom temporary rental. If we end up renting the townhouse before the Kitchen is redone (fingers crossed) then I’ll post the results once we are able to get it done.
Now to reveal the bedroom level. My plan for the Master Bedroom was this:
This is the before picture:
Here’s how it turned out:
My plan for the Guest Room was:
The Guest Room before:
And the results:
I love how everything turned out. I wish I could photograph it better, because my pictures really don’t express how lovely and transformed the rooms are. It doesn’t help that we have had a serious drought here in the Dallas area and yet, it’s been raining cat and dogs the past couple of days as I’ve been trying the photograph these rooms. These pictures were taken today when the sun finally came out again! If I do this again in the Spring (and I hope I can), I’m definitely getting a professional photographer.
Thanks for following along on this fun six week challenge. Please continue to stop by on Thursdays as I post about the Kitchen renovation and the changes to the Main Level!
Have a happy week,
What a beautiful fresh feel there is to this room! I love it
Wow~ An absolutely stunning space! I love the color and desk area. As a fellow 6 week participant the six weeks was indeed a challenge and you rose up. Well done!
oh my word, how lovely! whoever ends up renting out this space is very lucky…can’t wait to see the kitchen and main level!
Great job! I love the colors that you chose for the master! You have a nice space to work with!
Wow Rachel, It looks great! You did so much in such a little time I am so impressed. Love it all, good job! 🙂
Wait a minute….2 rooms! They both look so much better! I was at Ikea yesterday and saw some of the fabulous things you used.
The two rooms look like a huge transformation. Great job.
