ORC-Week 6- Final Reveal!

It’s reveal day!

I have officially finished my first ever One Room Challenge and it feels great! Thank you to everyone who followed along these last 5 weeks and for cheering me on. This was a fun, exciting, and exhausting 5 weeks!   I could not have made it to the finish line without the support and free labor from my handy husband and my super patient kids! I also want to thank my mother in law for helping me clean the entire dust covered house until 3am during her short visit here to NC and to friend and talented artist E Angelina Woehr for creating stunning original artwork for the bedroom. Love you all! ❤

I am so happy today has come to be able to share with you the final results of my coastal master suite makeover. If you are just joining me you can catch up on all the excitement, planning and progress below.

Week 1/ Week 2/ Week 3/ Week 4/ Week 5


I’m going to let the photo’s do the talkin’ for this last ORC post. It’s what we have all been waiting for right?


It’s always fun to look at the before pictures to see just how far the room has come.

Here’s where we started…….Boring!

I took my daughters old Pottery Barn Kids dresser and revamped it for the challenge. I wallpapered the drawer fronts with a Faux Grasscloth by York Wallcoverings and changed out the hardware with these Kohler  drawer pulls.

See next week’s post on pulling all the details together, the blunders and what didn’t make it in the room for the challenge.


Master Bathroom

If you remember from week 1 I also said I would include the master bathroom in this challenge. I never got a good before picture because we got a little sledge hammer happy and realized a little late that we didn’t take the traditional “before” picture. So here is the beginning of the bathroom renovation picture.

Thank you to my photographer Matt Parvin Photography who captured the room’s beautifully.  I was totally doing the happy dance when I saw the final photos.


That’s a wrap everyone!

A big thank you to Linda from calling it home for organizing this challenge. I always feel so honored when she comments on my posts. I appreciate your support Linda!

My first challenge was a lot of hard work but totally worth every hour of lost sleep. It feels amazing, fresh and like a true get away destination to be in the space now. I fully plan on just enjoying it this weekend. You may find me drinking coffee just hanging out in my shower. ha!

Now who want’s to rent a beach house this summer in Kure Beach, NC?

PS ~ I’m already plotting what room will be next for the fall ORC.


ORC-Week 3-Most Unproductive

Welcome back for the half way report- Week 3- Yikes! If you are just now joining me and want to catch up on the project- here is week 1 and week 2.

How is it week 3 already of this challenge? Seriously! I think my heart just moved into my stomach. I’ve been at High Point Furniture market for the past week – always a ton of fun but now trying to catch back up-(not fun)! Sadly, my room is in the same physical state as last week. But, I did a lot of product ordering last week and things are starting to trickle in. I will be heading running to the beach this weekend to do some painting and some major clean-up!


My Minka Aire fan arrived while I was at market this week and now waiting to be installed. I really struggled with the idea of a fan going back into the bedroom. A chandelier option would have been so beautiful! I just find most ceiling fans unattractive….but function is important to me and this is a beach house… in the South….it gets VERY hot and humid here!

I literally searched hours to find a nice balance of style and function in a fan and settled on this guy. I opted for a more modern style with three blades in a white finish to keep the room light and airy (no pun intended).






I managed to squeeze in some time to visit the stone yard and pick out my bathroon vanity top.  I found this beautiful Elegante White Leathered marble. This is the first time I have picked a leathered finish which, I must say I adore! The rougher texture and matte finish I think makes it a perfect coastal option and will work nicely with the tile in the shower!

Marble- ORC

Bathroom Tile ORC

Most of my fabrics have now arrived except my beautiful Lulu DK linen from Duralee in the multi blue which is out of stock. Boo! So I will be ordering the same fabric just in a slighly different color way. They have just enough fabric to cover the front of my throw pillows for the bed…thank goodness! The navy fabric will be on the back side. The white and the navy will also make up my drapery panels for two windows in the room.

The Thibaut Bankun Raffia in Navy will cover the front of my drawers on my DIY dresser project.
