Reveal day of the One Room Challenge Spring 2019 is finally here. My patio makeover is complete and I love it. It has just enough cool to make it fun and just enough cozy to make it comfortable. The weather during the last 6 weeks of the ORC hasn't really been on my side, let's say there have been more spring showers than flowers. In any case, I got the space done but there were a few things that had to be put on the back burner (e.g. painting the cement pad). If you like this space be sure to check out the featured designers rooms reveals and the guest participants makeovers, there is so much inspiration!
If this is your first time hearing about it, the One Room Challenge is a design event that takes place twice a year (Spring and Fall), where designers have six weeks to makeover one room in their home and blog about it along the way. I have participated in the One Room Challenge four times, one time as a featured designer and three times as a guest participant.
So let's take a look at what this space looked like prior to this makeover.
While this makeover was far less work than some of the other makeovers I've done in the past, it was all I could manage right now because we are renovating a new house and selling our current house. Here was the original plan.
Special thanks to the event sponsor Better Homes and Gardens and to my brand sponsors Article and Decors Veronneau and to Linda of Calling It Home for creating this event.
