ONE ROOM CHALLENGE (Week Three): Annex Guest Room Makeover

All right folks, we're halfway through the Spring 2017 One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home and House Beautiful. And I know what you're thinking... "Um, Courtney, there's no furniture in your room?"

Well, of course there's not, silly, because Week 3 is all about PAINT.

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE (Week Two): Annex Guest Room Makeover

Here at Content, Week Two of the One Room Challenge is in full swing! If you're just getting acquainted with the #oneroomchallenge, it's a 6-week event hosted by Calling It Home and House Beautiful where bloggers are tasked with the design, redesign or renovation of, get this, one room!

This is the 2nd installment of our Annex Guest Room Makeover update, and this week we're focused on PLANNING. If you need to back up, here's the post from Week 1.

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE (Week One): Annex Guest Room Makeover

Twice a year, in October and April, Linda from Calling It Home and House Beautiful hosts a One Room Challenge. Over the course of 6 weeks, 20 select designers and bloggers tackle renovating or redecorating a specific room, and share their progress with weekly blog posts. 

When the April 2017 list of selected designers was announces, I was so inspired by how many of the participants are blogs and designers I admire. I knew I wanted to participate too!

The One Room Challenge encourages Guest Participants, so I'm joining the fun, sharing the magic of an Annex Guest Room makeover we have yet to tackle.

What's even more exciting, is this is a linked event, which means that all the Guest Participants will share a common link and you'll be able to easily surf through a ton of room transformations. You'll find that link at the bottom of this post!
