I made it! Today is the official conclusion of the One Room Challenge. Over the past six weeks, I have been one of about 150 crazy bloggers racing to do a complete room makeover in our homes. I chose to transform an empty basement room with ugly red floor into my very own craft studio/office space, and I am thrilled with the results. Now this room has a purpose! It’s my own creative happy place, and I cannot wait to show it to you today.
This is my first time participating in the One Room Challenge, which is hosted by Linda of Calling it Home two times each year. It was a great motivator to keep myself working away each week and also helped me stay focused on one room as opposed to bouncing around from project to project like I tend to do. I have loved decorating my new space, but I’ve enjoyed keeping up on the other room makeovers just as much. Seriously, so many epic room transformations have taken place over the past few weeks. I cannot wait to check out all of the before and afters this weekend!

First, let’s take a good look at the ugly before photo:
Here is the mood board I designed for this space at the beginning of the challenge. My goal was to mix jewel tone accents with lots of white and a punch of black.
Next up is the shelving area. This is where many of my craft supplies are now stored. There is also a whole wall of shelving behind that blue curtain.
