Bathroom Makeover – Clé Tile Cubicon – ORC Week 3

Seriously, how are we halfway through this challenge already? I’m exhausted and not even doing the heavy lifting. Poor Gerry is dealing with my, “let’s customize everything in the smallest amount of time mindframe”…oh, and hey Gerry, I also need you to fix a basement and makeover yet another bathroom. Can we all take a pause and give Gerry and his crew a hug? Poor guy didn’t know what he was getting himself into with me.

One Room Challenge – Week 1

Oh One Room Challenge…you are the mistress I love to hate. Your pull is strong my dear. When I don’t participate, I feel left out…but when I do, I question my own sanity. For those unfamiliar with the One Room Challenge…or The ORC as my fellow bloggers refer to it as…it’s a challenge to makeover a room in only 6 weeks and document the process. Start to finish. Some succeed, others fail. It only happens twice a year. Motivating? Yes. Challenging? Yes? Complete and utter crazy ensues? You betch’yor bottom dollar. It’s time to slap on the helmet, buckle down the chin strap, and hold on tight. One Room Challenge Fall 2016 is underway!

On November 11, I wrapped..barely…I finished the final post only moments before the deadline. I was happy with how the space transformed, but that was in the old house. Yup, my pretty little office is gone like the wind. I thought about an office redo for this year’s ORC, but if you thought my last office before was bad, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. This one is a mic drop like Beyoncé at the VMAs. No way, no how. Besides, I just wrapped the Decorist DesignOff living room makeover yesterday. I needed to keep this baby small. Low budget. I needed to pick a tiny room.
