I MADE IT! Today is the big reveal and I couldn’t be happier. I have been working on updating my bedroom over the last six weeks. We moved into the house 11 months ago and it’s been neglected since move-in day. I wanted a serene, neutral, clean space. I set a budget of $850, and came in over budget by $178 and spent just over $1,000 (including tax and shipping, and mostly spent on the rug and window panels). I am going to be back with posts on my budget, sources, DIYs, proudest ideas and ideas for the future, but for now, enjoy the BIG REVEAL!
Here is a shot of the before:
AND NOW THE AFTER….

So, what do you think? I am so happy with the results and so glad that I jumped into the One Room Challenge. A huge THANK YOU to Linda at Calling it Home for organizing. Be sure to pop over there and see what the other contestants did with their rooms in six weeks. I have seen a few sneak peeks on Instagram and the transformations look AMAZING.
Thank you for coming along on the journey and stay tuned — I will be back with sources, budget breakdowns and a post-mortem of my favorite finds and plans for the future.
