One Room Challenge – Week 6 – The Reveal!

It’s finally here, week 6 of the One Room Challenge — the reveal! I feel like this living room has transformed. Before it was just a space in a house with a couch and tv. Now I have a room with organization, personality and coziness. It’s home. Well, I won’t keep you waiting any longer…here’s your first look of the new complete living room.

Big change right?! (If you want to take a look back week-by-week…here’s the link to week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, and week 5.)

Let’s start off with the fireplace area. Remember what that space used to look like? Green and brassy…no thank you.

Now it’s updated, smells great thanks to some Lilacs from my yard and even has some silver reflection going on with my new mirror.

This living room changed so dramatically in just six weeks! Great makeover!

You probably noticed the couch was moved. I wanted to give the entry way into the living room a bigger opening. But that meant I had to block the fireplace a little. For now, I think it will stay. Come winter, it may be time for another switch-a-roo. 😉

The desk work station was the main reason why the couch had to ‘kiss’ the fireplace so much.

I placed two desks side by side to create a work/play area. My son gets to play, I get to work. Or something like that. 😉  I love the new Stacked Ball table lamps from my lovely sponsor Lamps Plus. At night, they give the room a nice soft glow.

A tray in the middle of the two desks gives the work area some organization. I love the mini chalkboard easel where I can leave little messages. 😉

Let’s now jump over to one of my favorite walls in this space, the tv wall. You may remember it looking something like this…

Well….this space has a total new look.

Hanging my tv on the wall was one of the best changes to this space. And who knew it could be so easy with just a simple wall mounting kit?! My media stand is great too. Extra storage is always a plus when you have kids. Did you notice my babies hanging on the wall too? To me, family portraits make a house a home.  🙂

Oh, I almost forget to introduce you to my other baby…Fred. He’s kinda tiny now in this big basket, but mama is hopin’ he grows big! I love giant fiddle leaf fig trees, don’t you?

My entry way even got some love…

A new area rug and the coolest lamp ever gave this space some pizzazz. The steamed milk gourd table lamp from Lamps Plus has a sheer double shade. I love it!

Of course the one item that brought all the coziness to this whole space is my favorite Diamond shag rug from nuLOOM. This lovely company was another one of my sponsors and I can’t tell you how much my family loves this rug. Every time my little tootsies step across it I am happy. You saw last week how much Britton loved it. It’s just perfect. If you are shopping for a rug, definitely go check out nuLOOM!

It’s kinda hard to believe that this space went from this….

To this…

From chaos and clutter…

To organization…

I guess…that’s a wrap for this room. Although, if you know me…I’m sure I will be adding and tweaking over time. Thank you SO MUCH for following along on this six week journey and cheering me on. I have loved and treasured each and every one of your comments. 🙂
