Spring One Room Challenge: Week 6

Wow!  Week 6 of the One Room Challenge is here!  I can’t tell you how excited I am about the condition of this room.  Since we moved into our house in 2009, it has seen various stages of mess and progress, but only in the past 6 weeks have the most major changes taken place.  It looks and feels like a completely different room today than it did 6 weeks ago – without any construction or major financial investment.

Spring One Room Challenge: Week 5

Wow, Week 5 got here fast!  That means there’s only one more week left before I finally finish up this nearly two-year long project!  To catch up anyone who’s new, I’m in the final stretch of transforming a space that used to be a hoarder’s dream into a useable office space.  I made huge progress the first time I participated in the One Room Challenge in 2015, but there was more to be done.  Continue reading

One Room Challenge Week 4 - Decluttering and Organizing | Homespun by Laura

Spring One Room Challenge Week 4

This week’s focus has been on two areas:  Decluttering and Organizing.  The room both looks and feels very different after this week’s effort, and I’m pleased with the amount of things I’ve gotten rid of and the more organized look of the shelves.  It’s still a work in progress, so when you see the pictures you’ll probably think I’ve lost my mind.  You’ll just have to trust me.  Continue reading

Spring One Room Challenge: Week 3

Well, Week 3 of the One Room Challenge has arrived.  It’s weeks like this one that having a deadline and some accountability really push you to get things done.  

If this is your first time here, thank you for visiting!  I am working on our shared office space for the second time in the One Room Challenge, hoping that it gives me the motivation I needed to finally finish all the projects.

DIY Medal + Trophy Display Shelf

Do you have an abundance of sports medals hiding in a drawer or closet?  Almost every 5k road race these days hands out a medal to finishers.  Kids’ sports teams are often given trophies or medals at the end of the season.  Whether earned running, swimming, biking, or kicking, this project is the perfect solution for displaying all those medals in a place of honor.

One Room Challenge: Week 6

Wow!  Week 6 is here!  This One Room Challenge has been just that – a challenge.  And it’s been very rewarding.  I’m working at my new desk in my (not quite but almost finished) completely new office/sewing room, and I love it!
As I predicted in Week 1 and mentioned above, the room is not totally finished.  I’m truly OK with that, though.  It’s 400 times better than it was six weeks ago when this crazy challenge began, and there’s no way we would have made the changes that have been made in that amount of time without the timeline that the One Room Challenge provided, and I must thank Linda for that.  Thank you, Linda!
