One Room Challenge: Fall 2014 - Week Six

One Room Challenge Linking Event....Get Ready!
The Reveal....
Week Six is finally here! The library (aka living room) in our house is finished. It's been a long journey to get to a space where everything is in its place. If you would like to look back on the past six weeks, check out the links below:
Week One - Where I share my room inspiration
Week Two - Where my husband does all the work installing hardwood floors
Week Three - Where I rant about painting window trim
Week Four - Where I share my tutorial for covering a bench with fabric
Week Five - Where I give my tips for styling a bookcase
 I think Linda is on to something with the One Room Challenge. Six weeks is just the right amount of time to complete a room...long enough to get things done...but short enough to light a fire under you to work hard to finish. Thanks Linda for doing the ORC. I am so glad I was able to participate in the link up.
Here is my newly completed library....


We moved into this house a few months ago, and I can officially say that this is the first room that is completely finished. It is satisfying to look at a room that doesn't have any moving boxes in it!
I will be moving on to the other spaces, so be sure to check back if you want to see how I finish the other rooms in our house. (The sidebar has ways you can sign up to continue to follow.) Next week will be a tutorial on making rolled fabric curtains for our bathroom windows.
Also, I have enjoyed so much getting to discover new blogs and the people behind them through the ORC. I will be starting a new weekly series in January, where I feature small improvements that other bloggers have made such as adding flowers to an office desk, to getting a calendar organized, to redoing a whole room like here. So if you are a fellow blogger and would like to share and be featured on Improvement List, send me an email - improvementlist at gmail dot com. (You can find out more information by clicking the Get Featured link at the top of the screen).
Now I am going on over to Calling It Home to check out the finished rooms of my other fellow linking participants. So excited...I have waited six weeks to see the newly created spaces. I am always just so blown away from all the talent!
