• The New Floor | Eclectic Farmhouse Home Office – ORC Week 5

    Hi friends! Welcome to week 5 of the One Room Challenge! Can you believe that this challenge is almost over?! It seems to be flying by for me! This last week was a complete hustle week with lots of late nights. I am happy to report that another huge item on the list has been checked off! The plank floor is in, painted and sealed! Now I am not going to run through the whole process of how I installed this plank floor because I have already done that! Yep, I put this DIY plank flooring in my Living room which is right next to this office. You can head…

  • The Perfect Navy Paint that Almost Wasn’t| Eclectic Farmhouse Home Office – ORC Week 4

    What a crazy week! It started off with a last minute trip to my home state of Michigan to spend Easter with my family. An unexpected ER visit for my little miss made us stay a bit longer, leaving me with just one day to work on my office. That means that the next weeks I am going to have to work overtime to get this room completed! While I only had one day or really 5.5 hours to work on my room, It made a big impact on the room! I got my navy paint up on the walls! Of course I had to start with the boring stuff…

  • DIY Herringbone Board and Batten Accent Wall | Eclectic Farmhouse Home Office – ORC Week 3

    Week three of the One Room Challenge is here and it is the half way point. Am I halfway done with my room? Nope not really. I have to be honest I was feeling super stressed this last week. Months ago my family planned a girls weekend away and it just so happened to fall right in the middle of this challenge. I was also tackling my hardest project for the room, my DIY Herringbone Board and Batten Accent wall. From the beginning I knew that I wanted to add some character to this room and this DIY Herringbone wall accent was the perfect thing! Once I had my idea…

  • Eclectic Farmhouse Home Office | ORC Week 2 – A Clean Slate

    We are wrapping up the first week of the One Room Challenge. This first week of the challenge was all about cleaning out what was the formal dining room turned room so that I can begin making over the room. Last week I shared my design plan for my eclectic Farmhouse Home Office makeover as well as one snapshot of how messy the room was. Well here are a few more embarrassing photos of the way the room looked when I started cleaning it out. This room had become a drop all space and a big ole’ hot mess of a room. It didn’t start out this way but things…

  • The latest around here – Fireplace Remodel

      While we finished un-packing shortly after we moved into our house, we are now finally settling in to our new place. I may think I know where I want things in a new house, until I start to actually live there.  Then I tend to move things around until I find the place where they will work best. While most things stay pretty much in the same place, some things do change. One of those things was our Dining room. I had planned on putting the large dining room table that we were in the process of building in the formal dining room. Leaving us our smaller white round…

  • Basement Remodel- The Before and After

    After so many long hours of working month after month, I am so excited to share with you that our basement remodel is complete! This was just a side project that was getting completed on top of normal day life. So an hour or two a night was all we had to work on it. When I say we I mean my Husband. He did 95% of the work. The other 4% was done by some of his buddies and my dad. I did about 1% of the work. I designed and then did some partial painting. I really don’t know how I got such a light work load on…

I really love the look of the Capiz Chandeliers to go with my room. I think that they…

  • Under the Sea Mermaid Bedroom Paint Colors & ORC Week 3

    Hi Everyone! You may have noticed that there is no week two post for the One Room Challenge. I had the best intentions to post for week two and well I was so Easter focused that the week passed me by. Things are back on track now!  I did spend my time wisely this week by doing lots of shopping for Arianna’s room. I found some really great decor items for her room, but you are going to have to wait to see them because that is not this weeks topic. This week’s topic is all about paint! This is what Arianna’s room looked like when we bought our house. One wall was…
