…what in the world am I getting myself into!?
I probably just threw a lot at you with a simple one liner. So, let’s first give a quick high level of what the One Room Challenge is (and what it is not). First let me start with what it is not. The challenge is NOT a competition. There are guest participants, but we’re cheering each other on -not competing. I repeat… WE ARE NOT COMPETING AGAINST EACH OTHER!
Now, if you’re still with me and not overly concerned with this not being a competition, then let’s get into what The One Room Challenge IS and the fact that it is sort of like a competition! Lol…just kidding. It’s more like a competition against myself and against an 8 week clock. Here’s the high level break down:
Featured Designers [chosen by the official ORC crew] have been chosen to transform a space of their choice Each week (over the course of 8 weeks), the designers will share their progress, their process and their sources -where all their goodies were found.
While Featured Designers are being shared, we (guest participants) will upload our progress to www.oneroomchallenge.com/orc-blog every Thursday, starting September 30th. We’re not necessarily “featured” in like manner to those selected,l; but we have a way to share with each other and you all. It’s another great way to get ideas for your next design project!
BUT… you can continue to follow my progress in my stories over on Insta @kholmes_incolor . More detailed information & first looks (as in before IG sees it) will live here on the relaunchincolor.com site. Make sure you subscribe to be the first to know!
In this DIY journey, I’ve chosen to LIVE my life fully and jump all in despite fear and/or doubt!
Since I’ve been adding scope (project management term meaning making this project longer and longer…also costlier) to the Captain’s Log: Bathroom Updates, this is going to be the kick in the pants I need to GET IT DONE!
Basically, each week, I am placing pressure on myself to meet my goals > Update Bathroom. Share progress on Instagram. Update blog with full details and first looks.
Here’s the link so you can see other great creatives sharing their One Room Challenge.
Ohhhh before I forget to mention it, I’m still working full-time and doing the single parent gig so umm yeah…
The Heat Is On!
