I made it to the finish line of the Fall 2015 One Room Challenge.  It was a marathon and a sprint. A BIG thank you to Linda of Calling it Home for orchestrating the event and putting together such a stellar group. 

Six weeks seems to always fly by in the blink of an eye.  

I am thrilled with the end result being a fun, functional and fresh room for my family to enjoy.

See it for yourself and enjoy the many divine details.
