One Room Challenge || The Reveal - MudroomMay 07, 2015
Finally!!!! Reveal day is here!! It's exciting because I have something to show you but I had to make last minute adjustments because a few things did not come in on time. For those of you who are new I am participating in the One Room Challenge Linking Participants where I am decorating my little mudroom. You can see the before photos of the space here. It's small but I wanted to make it a very chic and simple space.
The One Room Challenge was started by Linda from Calling it Home some years ago where she lines up twenty very talented professional bloggers and designers to redo a room in just six weeks. They share their progress every Wednesday (see my past family room project here and my lilac closet here). And the Linking Participants (anyone can join!) report their progress on Thursdays. And finally today is the big reveal day for everyone that is linking. Here is my space-
I really love the black trim I added. It really pops against the white walls. We are all amazed at the difference a little black makes. Even my 7 year-old thinks the transformation is amazing. I painted the trim matte black with just plain spray paint after having primed it. The trim is the same one I used in my closet (half and inch round with a flat backing). You can find it at Home Depot. Once I had it painted the carpenter came in to nail it to the wall.
The console table is one of my favorite things ever! It was created by the super talented Liven Up Design team (you can see more on the table here) I bought the fabric, sent it to them along with dimensions on the table and they made that treasure! It is beautifully made and is super chic. I highly recommend working with Liven Up. They are great to work with and are seriously talented. The box I ordered to hold receipts and keys did not arrive so I used my old faux malachite boxes I made a few years back which I adore. The mirror is from West Elm and the bench is unequivocally from Target, but you all knew that. I'm in love with the Moroccan wedding basket!! So, so cool and perfect for shoes, backpacks.....anything kid related that needs to be contained.
The Fornasetti plates were an anniversary present from my parents and I just adore them. I left space for a couple of extra plates, which would be a welcome gift for Christmas (hint, hint!). The two paintings actually belong in my dining room. Nicole from Sketch 42 painted them and I just love them but since the prints I ordered never arrived I had to improvise. I actually really love how they look here, but they also look amazing in my dining room!
A huge thank you to Linda for organizing this popular and fun challenge that is truly inspiring. There are so many great ideas that come out of this fabulous group that it is really exciting and an honor to be a part of. And thank you to all you readers for your constant support. Go check out the other Linking Participants to see their reveals! I'm sure they are all spectacular.
