ORC Link Up … Week 1

Just when I thought I was capable of focusing on my own!

The One Room Challenge Linking Party starts today … for Six weeks you get to see a MILLION room makeovers with enough inspiration and creativity you could ever imagine all in one Place!

Go here to Follow or Join … Calling It Home.

Don:  "Kim, Can you just focus on the kitchen and the den so we can have two rooms completed before you begin the next?"

Me:  "Yes, I know!  I promise I'll quit jumping around and I'll do these two rooms first."

Don:  "Why are your piles everywhere?"

Me:  "I don't have an office."

Me:  "Linda is doing another ORC"

Don:  "Do it … at least SHE keeps you on task!"

Whoop Whoop … Here we GO!




There is a lot of Ugly to tackle before I get to my inspiration … I know you will pull me through!!

And, Yes … I chose Ms. Confidence!

Now go see what else is happening in homes across the world!

How do you like me now? ORC Update!




Linda, prompted by Elisa ... is doing a little espionage work to see if we actually have done anything different to our original ORC rooms.

Here's my Round Up
Go Here to check out all the other Rooms 
Made Beautiful during the ORC!

My First ORC... for a young family ... while the pieces are the same in their family room, it is now filled with their love!





My Second ORC ... turning an unused eating area into a Keeping Room for a young family to gather, wait for mom to finish cooking, and read books. The only change they made?  A new puppy!!


My Third ORC, here's where things start to change.
My Office Illusion ... 

What's different ... this illusion was ripped down and here is my NEW reality and it is NO illusion!  Definitely a contender for the April Link Up!




10' X 7' ... remnants of a Dark Room.
All Mine.

My Fourth ORC I joined in the ORC Link Up Party ... 
Our Powder Room.


What's different ... we Moved.  I am now faced with this.  I cannot even call this a Powder Room.  Another Contender for the April ORC Link Up.






I'd like your Opinion ... 
Which one would you like to see me tackle in April?

Powder Bathroom OR my No Illusion Office?
And, YOU can help me Focus!

Plus ... Pick a room and join the Link Up. Here's HOW.

As with all challenges there was progress, things not turning out quite the way you plan or anticipate ... but all coming together in the end.  Thanks again to Linda for pulling this all together and creating a forum for us to share and inspire and encourage!  

And thank you all for continuing to check in and comment.  Without that, I am not certain I would have completed this!

Have a wonderful weekend. Manhattan's being served on the sunporch at 7:30, See you here? At least virtually I hope!
