Rustic Traditional Lake House Master Bedroom Mood Board – One Room Challenge Week 1

It’s One Room Challenge Time! If you haven’t heard of it, it’s where decor bloggers like myself make over one room over the course of 6 weeks as part of Calling It Home’s One Room Challenge. This time, I’m doing my biggest makeover ever – my parents’ master bedroom in their gorgeous almost-done lake house! Why is it the biggest, you ask? Because this is what it looks like now:Continue reading

Boho Farmhouse Accessories Haul | One Room Challenge Week 5

It’s been snowing here, we took a break from lots of things for Easter, and the kids are wild and cabin-feverish, so not much has been done. I’ve been doing things in a sort of backwards manner because it’s been too cold and wet outside to get the power tools on the porch to do some trim work for the space, so this week I’ve opted for a more indoor activity: sewing drapes.Continue reading
