One Room Challenge - We're Halfway There!

Hey y'all!!  Can you believe that it is already week 3 of this Fall round of the One Room Challenge!  Holy moly it is flying by!  If you are just tuning in, the One Room Challenge is a 6 week design challenge that encourages design bloggers to completely transform a space within their home!  It is a great motivator to get things DONE and have so many help cheer you on!  If you missed our previous posts, you can find WEEK 1 here, and WEEK 2 here.  

Now let's chat about where I am at this halfway mark!  This week included a lot of boxes full of fun things showing up at my door!  Which always makes me giddy...it's like Christmas morning every time I open my door!  New boxes means progress!

I was also able to completely finish installing the spotted wallpaper!  Once I got a system going, it started to go fast!  I don't want to give too much away...but it is BEAUTIFUL!!! I am so in love! So check that off the list!  The boxwood wall is still in progress!  I have a few pieces up and I am loving the unexpected look!!  A little confession: I ordered enough wallpaper to cover all 4 walls just in case I didn't love the boxwood.  Well after a few pieces up, I'm hooked!  And it even got my reluctant mother on board too!  She is always my sounding board for design (let's be honest...she's my sounding board for EVERYTHING).  She has amazing style herself but sometimes she gives me a few eye rolls for my out of the box ideas.  But this one won her over! I can't wait to share!!

So this week has been a great week of PROGRESS!  However sometimes to reach a beautiful after, you have to create a MESS!  It has to get worse before it gets better!  So let's get real for a second.  Here's an honest update on my space...

Yikes! So pretty things are coming and progress is happening, but this honestly is exactly what my office has looked like this entire past week.  But I will make you feel a little better (or maybe me)...I cleaned it all up yesterday and tonight it is 10 times better!! I don't want to spill too many beans, but I'll leave you with these promising photo updates!
