ORC - THE Reveal!



What a FRANTIC six weeks it has been (okay, really seven ... Thank Goodness)!

Before I get going here with fabulous photos and the REVEAL... I have to say a HUGE thank you to Linda ... without her and this challenge ... I would probably still be sitting here.


Knowing what I know now.  This gives me the Shivers!!

I have been working in my basement for 5 years ... and truly hated going "down" ... so I tended to drag things up to the dining room or kitchen table.  This was a mess and kept me very scattered.  I am so happy to now have a place worth going downstairs for.  I smile whenever I walk in.  I really wanted and needed a huge punch of color and fun.  

My Inspiration Board



The Space is Dark ... There is only one little window that looks out to a metal drain in this area of the UNFINISHED (thus, my Illusion!) basement. I tried to LIGHT the area but kept getting flash back and reflections in the china hutch ... I hope you can appreciate the space with the low light!!

If you have a Brightness button on your computer ... Turn it Up Baby!!

To start at the Beginning ... 
An Unfinished Basement ... Drab ... Until Now!

Okay ... I'll keep my mouth shut and let the photos speak!


























I have a disclaimer ... my chandelier is not working.  I found out that the wiring was faulty.  I will be taking it to get re-wired and once it is working will show more photos to you with it Shining Bright!

The Beast ... Tamed
The Illusion ... My Reality
Happiness ... Achieved

Please check in tomorrow and I'll give you some of the details that made this space all come together!

And don't forget to check in with my Challenge Partners.  I am so blessed to be able to call them my new Blog Friends. These are some Talented Ladies, My Friends.

Go!  See!
