ONE ROOM CHALLENGE FINAL REVEAL





How I got to this finish line is almost a miracle.  I mean not one like Moses parting the red sea or anything but still a tough one around these parts:) 

All my clients hate me right now.....I'm pretty sure I gained 10 lbs by the way my jeans are fitting....my house is a mess and there is no food in my fridge.  

Things are pretty bleak around here.

Do I wish I had one more week....#hellyeah.


All complaining aside these are exciting times....today you will see the reveals of 20 designers and bloggers who have had 6 weeks to finish up one project.

I am going to keep my comments brief showing before and afters so you don't have to go back and forth!  Friday I will give you all the details!

Let's start here.....

Small art was donated by Linda Donahue.  She sent it to me a while back when I bought some art!



OK.....that's it.  More details on Friday!

My sister is thrilled with her new space and the fact that there were so many sponsors [thanks to Linda for all of her hard work on that end....I owe you girl!] really helped to pull this off.  

I also have to thank my sister Maggie [the Bunny] for all of her help:)  It was definitely a family affair!
Sudi.....you worked miracles with what I gave you for curtains....love you girl.

You can see all of the fabulous before and afters here....

Hello Celerie....you'll need to append your Black & White book for this fantastic space!!!! Sherry it's beautiful!!!!! Every single inch is gorgeous.

Betsy Cobb Gordon said...

Sherry,
It's just stunning and so peaceful. You knocked this one out of the park.
I can't get over the white floors, light walls and that amazing urbane bronze on the built ins. It doesn't even look like the same space.
All the new furniture and accessories just mix beautifully.
Now, go get yourself a pedicure (compliments of your sis) and sit back to enjoy all that you've created.
Seriously, to outdo yourself every ORC. How is that possible??
I'm saving my pennies, so I can hire you one day. That is, hoping you'd come OOP for me.

Christine Dovey said...

You have seriously BLOWN MY MIND WITH THIS!!!!! Holy shizzle...I don't even know where to start. I guess the most important thing to note is that you have completely and totally transformed this space...like every square inch of it. This is massive!!!! Wow. Ok...composing myslef. My favourite, favourite, favourite part is the round table nook with the half black walls- I'm seriously obsessed with that vignette and am so inspired by it. Adore the mix of the wood with the check table cloth and the pillows on the wood chair- gah...it's just so ridiculously perfect. I love how you've managed to completely change the feel of the entire space. Now it seems so modern urban Scandanavian farmhouse and I LOVE that. You've just really done something amazing here Sherry...so so sooooooooo good!

Beautiful!!! I love the neutral palette - it's so timeless and classic. Phenomenal. I'm with you on the house being a wreck and no food in the fridge - eating out again tonight I'm afraid... Love this challenge, but boy, it kills me!

ElevenGables said...

It's all so beautiful! Well done! I can't get over all that you accomplished. I love especially how you styled it all. The fabric used on the skirted table was the same fabric I used for my bridesmaids skirts! I saw it at an interior fabric store and bought it all! Love it. Wish I had some now for my own skirted table. Congrats and cheers to a job well done! xox, Emily

Barbara Moore said...

You are so talented....like 'C'mon, seriously?' talented. So many ideas I'd love to 'borrow'. You are ALWAYS the best when it comes to the ORC. Your spaces are more beautiful and - more importantly - still
LIVABLE than all the others. You make your spaces about your clients and not about you. Bravo. Again.
Barbara

Shelley

Lindsey @ The O'Donnell Collective said...

I am so impressed!!! You really took on a TON for this makeover and it turned out brilliantly. I love that it still feels really cozy and a bit rustic (like the original) but you've taken it in a way more modern direction. Kudos!

Barbara Meyers said...

YOU ACCOMPLISHED SOOOOO MUCH!!! Hats off to your Sherry, you should be very proud. This looks fantastic, like a room you would want to entertain in. GREAT JOB!

You're nothing short of a miracle worker, Sherry! I can't gush enough about what an amazing change this is and how fresh and modern your sister's home looks now. And the trim on the curtains--seriously. Gorgeous!

Christina Baker said...

Sherry! I am dying over your room! I was able to see a sneak of it on Instagram this morning before I started painting. I just knew it would be amazing! I LOVE your use of black and white with several neutral tones. I'm such a fan. Congratulations!

tanyaj said...

Linda Pakravan said...

FABULOUS!!! I see a reality show in your future! What a transformation!

Carrie said...

First, can you adopt someone as a sister? Because I'd like to propose myself... Wowwwww!!! I love seeing how you re-used pieces and modernized what your sister already had. Not to mention the sheer gorgeousness of all the new things together. Now I'm off to read the followup post and learn more. (think about the sister-adoption thing) :)

Vel Criste said...

As expected, another FABULOUS transformation Sherry!!!!!! Love every little detail in this space!

Albertina M. Cisneros said...

Sherry!!! This is amazing! OMG you put so much hard work into this. It looks so bright and beautiful! I love your color palette, fabric choices and new room set-up. My favorite corner is the one with the skirted round table! I would spend all my afternoons there playing board games. Beautiful job!! I can't believe you accomplished all this in 6 weeks!
xx

Whitney Shortt said...

I love this makeover!! Probably one of my favorite so far. Do you mind if I ask where you got the planter that you have your fiddle leaf in? Great job to you guys for getting so much done in such a short amount of time, and that brush stroke lamp is to die for!

Kelley said...

This is my favorite of all the challenges. You totally banished the 80s!!! I love the black and white, your use of the awkward layout, the freshness of it all. Well done!!

SHERRY HART said...

Home Depot!

mrs. V | Chez V said...

Another ORC home run! What a vast improvement. My favorite corner is the skirted table sitch as well as the white wing back against the darkened bookshelves. I've said it before, and I will say it again, wish I was one of your sisters. They get all the goods!

Cory and Rich said...

Sherry:

You might have answered this, but I must have missed it...would you mind sharing the source for the living room chairs? Love them & the transformation!

Thanks! Cory

WOW Sherry,

It came out beautiful!! Thanks, Robin

Sarah Sofia Productions said...

Wow Sherry, what a transformation! I love the before and after comparison. You really made major impact with paint, that chandlier, and of course I love Jana Bek brush stroke lamp! I don't know how you were able to so much in 6 weeks? BAVO to a job well done my friend! XOXO, Sarah

pam {simple details} said...

Of course, I saw it bright and early on reveal day :) but I'm just now getting back to officially proclaim my awe at your incredible style!! Girl, you are the queen of neutral, textural, awesomeness and knock it out every! single! time! I couldn't love it more, BIG congrats!

Cindy said...

OH MY GOSH! How do you do that!?? When i saw your facebook post mentioning it, i couldn't get over here fast enough. I love the way you "hid" the tv by painting the cabinets, the color is perfect, and what a great sofa! The little nook with the round table is perfect and the entry, omg... that mirror with the cabinet under it in the raw looking wood look like a million dollar makeover!

Cindy

Lucy and Jenn said...

What a huge transformation!

Naomi@DesignManifest said...

Such an gorgeous transformation. So many great textures and patterns, yet so soothing at the same time. I love your touch!! Lucky lucky sisters :)

mollie's mom said...

I quickly zoomed through the "reveal rooms" when they were posted but I was still charging to the finish line (staying up all night) to finish my own ORC. I have now gone back and reallllly looked at your room in detail, studied it really, and it is just stunning from the white floors to all of the small details and everything between. I love it all, white floors, the deep color on the walls, fabrics, curtain trim, etc. It's amazing!!! And being an Atlanta area gal I'm hoping to try the restaurant as well!!
