Welcome to Week Three of the One Room Challenge!

It's been a busy week and I'm excited to see some progress happening!

One of the major things I tackled this week was the feature wall. It was tedious work but we're making progress. Just a reminder that this storage shed started out as a blank white canvas. I like the white but I wanted to make the feature wall moodier!

I'm really pushing myself to use what we already have so I had my husband add shelving to the back wall as well as a wood counter with building materials that we had at the house.

I painted the shelving and framing on the back wall in a clay color and painted the counter a deep purple. Every space needs a touch of vintage so I had my husband gut a vintage stereo cabinet that we had then repainted it and will place it under the counter to help anchor the feature wall. Here's are some work in progress photos to show how that's going to play out...

This is what I call the "messy middle" phase but I promise you everything is going according to plan! I decided that I'm going to move my antique Chinoiserie desk to this space. I'm really loving spending time in here especially during quarantine!

For motivation, I pulled out some of the Frida Kahlo prints that I will be incorporating!

I mentioned in Week One that I'm partnering with one of my favorite furniture companies, Twin Star Home, the #1 market leader in electric fireplaces and adjustable height desks, for this project. They are now offering outdoor furnishings and have generously agreed to sponsor the seating area that I will be creating just outside of the she shed. I ordered 2 club chairs, an accent table and a set of pillows all from the kathy Ireland® Homes & Gardens Madison Ave. 3 Piece Outdoor Collection by TK Classics. I received some of the product this week and THEY ARE GORGEOUS!! The club chairs are so comfortably oversized that my daughter and I fit in one and my husband can "man spread" in his, so he's ecstatic! I cannot wait to get that seating area set up. This week we plan to add gravel to the front of the She Shed so that I can arrange the furniture. I'm also adding a little boho tasseled umbrella canopy the mix. Here's a sneak peek...SO cute, amiright?

Here's my task list for this week:

  1. Add gravel to the front of the she shed.

  2. Color-block the exterior of the doors for a fun punch of color.

  3. Organize and edit more items!

  4. Add additional shelving to the interior.

  5. Paint new shelves.

  6. Find a solution to arrange fabric, tile and wood samples so that they are easily accessible.

That's kind of a lot especially since we seem to be slowly coming out of quarantine! Yay! I'm commencing some projects, wrapping up on others and getting more and more new project inquiries! It's going to be challenging to get this all done! Until next week my friends!


The One Room Challenge, is currently in its seventeenth season, and in the design industry, this is a widely anticipated event every spring and fall. Each round, twenty design influencers are selected to take the challenge, as Featured Designers, and transform a space. Every Wednesday, the designers document their process while sharing their sources and professional advice over six weekly posts. 

In addition to following along, everyone with a blog or Instagram account, is welcome to join the fun as a Guest Participant by linking their own room transformations up during the six weeks. Each Thursday, the internet and social media are flooded with interior design inspiration, ideas, and encouragement.
