One Room Challenge: Week 6 final reveal

We made it, you guys! The final week of One Room Challenge! Are you still with us? Well, if there’s ever a time to tune back in it’s NOW! Sit back and enjoy an absurd amount of “before and afters”–it’s going be good!

If you’re just joining in, we focused our attention on this 6 week challenge with 20 other bloggers and a handful of generous vendors on Mary, our business director here at Lars, and the new house she bought a few months ago.

One Room Challenge Week 2: Furniture and Accessories

Ye haw! Things are swimming along with Mary’s 6 week kitchen renovation (gah!). As you may know, any renovation is challenging to complete in 6 weeks, but kitchens are particularly tricky as there are more elements than normal: electrical, HVAC, windows, appliances, you get the drift. And because Mary has bigger plans, this also included moving walls and windows. Ain’t no thang! 

Last week we showed you our vision for this round’s One Room Challenge and this week we’re talking about what exactly is going IN the space as far as decor and furniture goes. Let’s take a look! Read on →
