It is that time again for the One Room Challenge!!!
I am a glutton for punishment yet, it seems it may be the only way to actually motivate me to do anything in my own house.
This One Room Challenge Fall 2015 I am tackling my playroom. It is basically a wallowing pit of destruction. I am ashamed to even show it but, here goes.
The negative to this overused room is that my husband, children, and 3 dogs use and misuse it all the time and I never really decorated it either. You also enter this room directly from the back door and I hate what guests are forced to see upon entering this oversized dog bed of a room. It is the leftovers from other spaces. The sectional was the wrong color when I bought it at the Mitchell Gold Outlet but I loved the lines knowing I would recover it in the future. The time is NOW and that is where One Room Challenge comes in.
Most of the art will stay in this room with some additions. It is still off the wall from my showhouse with Traditional Home last spring…I never rehung and have moved things around. Expect a killer gallery wall if nothing else.
These people are a mess…
Wow…how disgusting are those bookshelves…I cringe walking through here!
These are part of the problem…Maple
But how can you say no to that face? #sucker
Notice all the mismatched and lack of pillows…Maple was kind enough to spend her entire puppy year (she is now 15 months) chewing through the corners of every pillow in the playroom. She is a real charmer!
The table that was put in there by default and is a collector of daily junk. Regardless of the amount of cleaning, EVERYONE drops their daily piles as they enter. It drives me insane!
It has a tent made of a box currently…nice designer touch.
One Room Challenge for those not in the know, is a semi-annual event where 20 bloggers, made up of Professional Designers, Diy’ers, and Interior Design Bloggers, transform a room from start to finish hosted by Linda of Calling it Home.
For the next six Wednesday’s, we will be giving you updates on our room progress.
Check in next week for my plan and sponsors I will be using. I am frantic to get this room turned around.
