So here we are six weeks after I began this challenge and although there is always more I would like to do, today is the day that we show our finished rooms. I wanted a space that was a little shabby chic and I wanted it to be a space that was more like a room than a porch and I think I have achieved that. I am happy with my new porch. So without further ado, let me show you my new and improved porch.
here to see the original headboard that had been tossed away and in need of some help. I placed a twin size quilt on the seat which is a Simply Shabby Chic quilt by Rachel Ashwell, that I purchased at Target. I absolutely love the subdued colors of this quilt.
here. There was no sewing and no crocheting involved.
I made the burlap wreath a month or so ago. If you want to see how I made it then go here. It is simple and anyone can make one of their own.
part one, part two, and part three.
here. If you have never been to Canton I do encourage you to go.
I think I will be spending plenty of time at this table. With the hanging ferns it is very enclosed and semi-private.
Have I left anything out? I don't think so. Is there still more I would like to do? You bet there is! But I am content for the moment. It has been such an enjoyable six weeks. Again, I want to thank Linda, From Calling It Home blog for hosting this One Room Challenge event and allowing me to participate. It has been a joy. Please go to her website where you can see many other bloggers who participated in this challenge as well. There is some incredible spaces out there that you really do want to see.

I hope you enjoyed my One Room Challenge journey as much as I enjoyed creating this space. It is a space I will enjoy so much more now that it is more inviting and welcoming. Thank you all so much for coming by each week and leaving kind and encouraging words to keep me moving and motivated. You are greatly appreciated!
Tonight I will be co-hosting at Southern Girl Blog Community for That's Fresh Friday Link Up Party, so please come back and join me tonight at 6 pm and share your post with this great community of bloggers.
