My One Room Challenge Favorites - Fall 2015

I spent the weekend resting and recovering from the One Room Challenge and perusing all the other wonderful guest participants reveals!! Wow! There is a lot of talent out there folks! And yesterday I took the house back! Man, I don't know about you, but when I'm in project mode the rest of the house gets neglected! So, today I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite ORC challenge makeovers with you today! Go and check them out for yourself! You will surely be inspired!

Bathroom Makeover - One Room Challenge Reveal

It's done! It's wonderful! And I LOVE it!!
Lots of painting happened in this room, lots of DIY's, and lots of bargain shopping. I shared with you my budget last week and in the end I came in just over $300!! I love being able to get the look I want for less!

DIY Gone Wrong - Dip-Dye Debacle

Hello there friends! I'm here to share with you the ugly truth that sometimes DIY doesn't always go the way you planned. Sometimes you will fail. And fail is what I did this weekend. :(

One of the things I have been wanting to try for a while is a dip-dye ombre. I read plenty of tutorials, and honestly it looked pretty straight forward. So, I got confident and dove right in. I read the directions on the dye bottle, and proceeded with what I remembered from the tutorials I had read.

Easy Outdoor Planter Boxes and Lighting Fix

So, a couple of weeks ago while the kids were on Fall Break, hubby and I decided to knock out a project to remedy an issue with the patio redo. (never mind that I had just nose-dived into ORC!)

Maybe you remember from the original patio reveal that the light poles were leaning.
