Hey y’all…we’re excited to announce that we are participating in the One Room Challenge for the first time as a Guest Participant! To be honest, we’re not exactly sure what we’ve gotten ourselves into and while there is definitely a lot of excitement in the air, there is also a slight hint of panic. If you are unfamiliar with the One Room Challenge, it is essentially a 6 week mad dash to the finish line where you take a room in your home and completely transform it. Eek! Each week we will be sharing our progress with you and hope you enjoy the journey with us.
For our One Room Challenge, we have decided to create a Master Bedroom Closet where there really isn’t one at the moment. Since the house was built in 1901, the Master Bedroom sits next to a room, which used to be a porch, but was at some point converted to an enclosed space. Right now it is an embarrassing makeshift closet, which you will see a little later on in this post.
The room is a decent size with double windows, which is nice for natural light. What we are hoping to accomplish in the 6 weeks is to create a closet that helps keep our lives organized and still look pretty. Under the double windows we will place matching dressers. Then next to the window we plan to put a tall built-in unit for shoes, purses, etc.
On the side wall, we are hoping to create a weathered wood plank wall, with copper industrial pipes for hanging clothes. And then it may be a tight fit, but we would love to have a vanity in the closet for getting ready.
Here is what we are envisioning:
