You guys!  It’s here!  It’s finally our living room makeover reveal day!!

Frankly, I can’t quite believe that I made it.

I truly had my doubts during this round of the One Room Challenge.  It’s my third time attempting this challenge and I think that this one was the hardest one to finish up in time.

I didn’t know if I would receive my online orders.  Or if I would get all the painting done.  Or if I would get my art up and the room staged. Or…or…or… how I was going to fit it all in while also working on the basement.

But somehow I made it!

The only thing I am missing from my original inspiration plan is the bamboo roman blinds that I ordered – and those will be here soon.  {I will be back to share what the living room looks like again once we get those installed}.

And I am absolutely IN LUUUUUV with all the changes.

So enough chitter-chatter; here is how our living-room-tweaking-turned-bigger-then-expected-pretty-much-full-living-room-makeover turned out…
