ONE ROOM CHALLENGE FINAL REVEAL




So if you are reading this then I succeeded in figuring out how to schedule a post.....for the first time I might add.

Techno wizard baby.

Or not.

Here we are...the final reveal.


I had to finish early and seriously I am used to writing in real time...this is strange to me.

I got as far as I could....and took a gob of pictures...edited my butt off.  I mean I can't think about it anymore right?

So let's roll baby.

One before shot just to remind you what we started with.


I didn't change the headboard....just raised it for more presence.

So here we are.  Really....only bought the curtains and the coverlet [Pottery Barn].  I did find the brass lamp at a flea market for 20.00 and got the shade for 19.00 at the Ballard outlet.

Whoops...I did order these from Restoration.


Whoops...I bought that little vase at Target.

The big mystery of which chandelier I used is now revealed!  The pillows used to be in my LR.


The chest painted black.  I ended up using a skin I already had instead of buying seagrass....

I got the turtle shell at Scott's for 12.00 and painted it with chalk paint.


I had that little bench [the throw came from Goodwill] and the mirror is one I have had for at least 10 years.  

I got those beads at Scott's.  The table is old, got it at a yard sale.


The floor lamp is also old and came from Target.  The blinds were ordered from Overstock.

And...the pictures that used to be in my LR now recycled to the guest room.




Alrighty then....done...and done.

In all honesty....it does feel good to have it finished.  

I can't wait to see everyones finished space......so here are the links for you!

Use what you have baby and sneak in a few little purchases, my kind of re-decorating project! Love the end result Sherry, it's always fun to see you work your magic. Hope you are enjoying your R & R.

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Look at you! Pulling it all together in 6 weeks, scheduling posts. Is there anything you can't do? I'm so glad you went with the crystal chandelier. It's unexpected with the more rustic touches. You always do such a great job, Sherr-mazing!

Sherry, You knocked it out of the ball park, love it and it is so YOU!! I did a post today on staying to yourself, and I would say that you definitely have done that my dear. Lovely vignettes, great use of old and new and an abundance of textures mixed with high contrast colors. Excellent,
xo Kathysue

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Sherry, it came out beautifully!! Loving the black and white color scheme….so peaceful and pulled together. And it's just crazy that you mentioned raising your headboard to give it more presence, because I just recovered my headboard it seems so low for some reason….even though it's been that height for eight years….I'm inspired to hang mine higher after seeing yours "with presence".

Kim said...

First, congrats on being able to schedule a post. I have never figured this out!! Second, and more importantly, the room is fab. I love the simplicity and warmth all tied up on one gorgeous package! Hope you are having a wonderful R&R!! xo

The Pink Pagoda said...

I would like to stay in this room, but I would love to go on vacation with you. This looks fantastic, and a week early is not like you :). I really like how you blend hard with soft.

A Perfect Gray said...

Barbara Bussey {The Treasured Home} said...

Hi Sherry!,
Let me be the 48th person to say you sure made it happen in this room! I love how you hardly bought anything new. I want to go to the flea market with you! great job! And how can you beat black and white?

The enchanted home said...

Sherry you are just too good! LOVE the room, the all white palette with the white and textured neutral touches...BRAVO! Love that gallery wall too....so beautiful!

Angela said...

Looks fantastic!

Great job! I may "borrow" some of your ideas!!

Tara {The Silver Lining} said...

What a beatuful room!! I would love to add some antlers and a turtle shell for our office when I get around to decorating it. My husband likes to hunt and fish, so that's the one room I'm going to try to make a little more rustic for him.

Annie Vincent said...

Absolutely love it! Chic and rustic but light and bright!

sarah @ homeologymodernvintage said...

What a crisp fabulous guest room idea! Great job

lisaroyhandbags said...

It looks awesome Sherry! Gosh - to spend a night in there - I'd be one happy guest! :)

Carol@HouseandHomeDefined.com said...

Okay, so I can't stop staring. It is so gorgeous, really. But then I also love black and white, and all the texture going on is just over the top love. I love that you have yard sale, new, old, etc., and yet it looks like you did it all at the same time, it works so incredibly together. Wish I had all that stuff hanging around MY house!! Bravo.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I'll be #65 to tell how fabulous this room is. Love the black chest, gallery wall, side table, and of course the antlers.

Splendid Willow said...

My absolute favorite room. Stylish, current, fun, interesting and very warm and inviting. All very you.

5 stars my friend.
