One Room Challenge – Stairs & Hall – The Next Steps

Well the One Room Challenge is over and we can all take a breather. But as any homeowner will tell you, the work is never done.

If you’re not familiar, the One Room Challenge is an event hosted by Linda at Calling It Home and House Beautiful where 20 designers make over a space from start to finish in just 6 short weeks. You can catch those designers each Wednesday, and the rest of us link up on Thursdays. I did my first Challenge last Spring and my second last Fall. And last week, I revealed my latest Challenge: our stairs and hallway!

One Room Challenge – Stairs & Hall – Week 4

Happy Thursday, friends! Are you ready for an update on the One Room Challenge?

The stairs and hall makeover is moving along, although I’m just a little behind after Hurricane Matthew. Unfortunately all of the electricians in the area are completely booked after the storm and flooding, and installing a new light socket and switch are not really on their priority list. So who knows if we’ll get to that. But the stairs are looking great!!

One Room Challenge – Stairs & Hall – Week 3

It has been a crazy couple of weeks around here! First, we got hit with Hurricane Matthew, followed by record flooding. Schools were out for almost 2 weeks and many in our community are still without power or a place to call home. Thank to those of you who contacted me and donated…it really means so much!

Last week, Charles and I took a rare vacation and made our way up the Outer Banks. It was a much-needed break…but more on that later.

I know it’s not the official ORC day, but I just wanted to catch you up on our progress to transform the stairs and hallway.
