One Room Challenge -- The Reveal

When I think of the right words to describe this "new room" in my home, all I can think of are: bold + loud + girly + my inner-tween self. This space is for me. I know this isn't everyone's taste as it can be a bit obnoxious with all the colors - but this room is FUN. Dare I say it, but something I love even more than decorating is clothing. This translates to this space because my clothes are bright and colorful and almost always there is a leopard print included. And hello, the real jewel of this room is my new closet. (Side note: all these pictures were taken at approximately 8:00pm so excuse the night time setting, down-to-the-wire stress and last-minuteness that is the awesome One Room Challenge. And we all know photography is not my strong suit.)  


I could not love my copper floor length any more than I do in this picture. And I've grown to cherish every single cheetah spot on that wall.



So on the other side of the room, I made a little "get ready" station. Obviously my heap of makeup is no where to be seen, but I just love the idea of having a designated space for all my junk. 



When I was thinking about what I wanted for my new closet, I just KNEW that I had to have a lot of storage space and hanging space. When I tell you I can.not.wait. to get in this space and play, that would be an understatement.  I know what everyone really wants to see is my DIY turquoise beaded chandelier.


Everyone close your eyes and pretend you don't see that strip at the bottom that still needs to be painted. Floors were stained that morning!





Now who wouldn't want to play dress-up in that room for a girls night or a date night?! Total confidence boost, right? Can't forget the wine :) And, it just wouldn't be a good after without a little before.

Closet area BEFORE. 


The rest of the room before! Notice no more doorway in the background? Makes ALL the difference. 
Thanks so much for all the kind words over the past 6 weeks. I adored having you following along. Thank you to Linda for creating this One Room Challenge, for without you, my husband would still be lingering on our dining room project. Make you sure you check out all the other linkers
