One Room Challenge - Week 2 (and Week 1 for me)

I've always been intimidated by power tools and down right scared scared of anything that cuts (honestly sometimes I have hard time with big knives). So today was a big step for me, I bought a mitre saw! eee! I'm nervous just thinking about it. I bought the saw for a very special DIY project I have planned for the One Room Challenge. Details on this project will come to the blog next week. The room I've chosen for the challenge is my Dinning/living room (it's basically one room).  I'm one week behind on the challenge but I'm confident I can still make it work... if I can just build up the guts to pull the saw out of the box lol.

Be sure to check out the 20 featured designers of the One Room Challenge. Link back here. You can also check out some fellow guest bloggers joining in on the fun by visiting the guest participant link-up here.
Here are my One Room Challenge plans - before pics of the room below.

Here are some before pics of the room (note, furniture is from the previous owner).

Hi! I'm Andrea, I'm a Momma, a Designer and a hopeless DIY'er. I love finding ways to achieve a lux look for less.


  1. Hello Andrea,

    Following you from Blog Podium 2016. You have a lovely blog. Can't wait to see your finished project. I will be back.


    1. Thank Gabriela! It's coming along. Great to see you last night : )

  2. Exciting! I have to agree with you on the power tools. Good luck with all the cutting, I know it will go just fine!

    1. haha, nice to hear other people share my fear. It was actually way better than I was expecting. Thanks for the encouragement :)
