We’re five weeks into our One Room Challenge traditional living room makeover! This makeover is a special one – we’re blessing my in-laws with a new living room in their home! Come see a few sneak peeks into our project before the big reveal next week!
This is our last and final update before the big reveal next week… Can you believe it? This season has flown by and I’m so excited to share the entire makeover with you in just a few days. For this week’s post, I’m sharing with you a few sneak peeks! Scroll down to get a peek into the room. 🙂

New to the ORC? Let me explain! The One Room Challenge is a bi-annual event with 20 featured designers and close to 200 guest participants (including me!) that all work through a room makeover in the six week season. This is our third season participating as guests and it’s by far one of my favorite events to participate in as a designer and blogger. The design talent displayed in the room makeovers is truly inspiring!
As always, let’s start by looking at our project task list – we’re just about done!
Remove wall Reroute electrical Patch sheetrock Patch flooring Install new ceiling lights Paint all trim Paint and install all doors Paint all walls Paint ceiling Paint and install fireplace Install TV Mount
- Paint credenza
That’s right – all we have left to finish up is painting the credenza (the cabinet is done, just the doors need their final coat) and decorating!
Here’s a sneak peek at the red paint on the credenza:
Isn’t it fabulous?! We used an oil-based paint in a semi-gloss sheen so it’s durable and honestly, it’s stunning. And the PERFECT pop of color in this space! I can’t wait to show you the entire piece with the doors on and all the decor on top. 🙂
I have to say, this week was definitely the most fun so far because we were finally able to start furnishing the room. We put in all the doors and new hardware, rolled out the rug, moved in the sofa, recliner and side chairs, put out the tables, hung curtains and even mounted the TV and sconces above the fireplace!
Here’s a sneak peek at the chairs we got from our sponsor, HomePop:
Aren’t they beautiful? I love the charcoal grey fabric paired with the cream, velvet pillow. 🙂 Never heard of HomePop? They’re an awesome home furnishings brand that makes accent items like ottomans and benches, accent chairs, dining chairs and more. I love that their products are fun and stylish but still livable. Many of their items have fun pops of pattern or color too, so I’d encourage you to go check them out!
You can also get a tiny glimpse of the fireplace in this shot too. Can you believe that’s a faux fireplace? And that we got it for just $50?? It looks so fabulous in there and really ups the style of the room. 🙂
Lastly, I just HAVE to show you the DIY flat door update I did on their garage door! I’ll be sharing a tutorial for it in the next few months, but take a look at how a bit of trim on a flat door can create a faux 6-panel door:
Can you believe that’s the same door?! Painting it made a big difference too – and we couldn’t have done it without the help of our sponsored HANDy Paint Pail! 🙂
Of course, a big thank you to FrogTape, our official sponsor this season! Their painter’s tape is amazing, so make sure you grab some for your next painting project!
Don’t forget to follow my Instagram stories for real time updates throughout the week! I’m sure I’ll share a few behind-the-scenes looks at the reveal photo session. 😉 And be sure to head over and take a look at all the featured designers and other guest participants too. 🙂
See you next week for the big REVEAL!!!
