One Room Challenge Guest Participant Kick Off

And just like that....I'M BAAACKKKK!

I actually thought/hoped/dreamed I would start back blogging on my newly made over blog while sitting in my newly made over office. Well as you can see the blog is still the same (way too much pink) and the office is in need of some serious help!

So rather than waiting on the stars to align or the right timing, I decided to dive head first into blogging and join the Spring 2017 One Room Challenge as a guest linking participant. If this office is ever going to be completed, these 6 weeks of accountability are the only way it's going to happen these days. Yes, you heard right 6 WEEKS! So join me here every Thursday to follow my progress.

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that almost a year ago I moved my florist and gift shop, Soiree, into a former restaurant/golfclub/clubhouse/residence that was built in the 1850's.

 I fell in love at first sight! One of the main selling points was the large room upstairs that I could turn into my dream office!

During the move (oops that piece goes downstairs to left, not up); sorry guys!

This is what I ended up with, the place where unknown boxes, accessories, and books go to rest.

Yes, there are a couple of original Dorothy Draper chests hidden in the clutter!

I have decided to go with a grey, pink, white and black color scheme. I have always loved these offices from the set of the TV show, Ugly Betty.

I will need shelving for my books, plenty of desk top space; storage for stationery and supplies; and seating for meetings or when my favorite nephew, cousins, or pups come by for visit! As you can see it's quite the list, but I plan to reuse as much as I can, and I had actually already purchased a few things that I am sure my husband will be happy to see them leave our home!
Stay tuned and checkout all the other VERY talented guest participants in the One Room Challenge 


See y'all next Thursday!
