One Room Challenge Review

Wow, it is so nice to read about all of the excitement and anticipation for the One Room Challenge. I have received quite a few emails, so I would like to give a quick review for anyone who may be joining in for the first time. 

Let's start with the logo. The purpose of the logo is to help guide the readers to your room. Many people will come by and visit you on a day when your room may not be on your front page. You can place this logo on your sidebar (treat it like an image) and link it to your post, then readers can click on it and get directed to your room. Each week you can edit your original post to include updates. Here is an example


Just copy it and place this on your blog. I'm keeping it small so you won't have to resize it. 


You have six weeks to finish your room. We want to see your progress and encourage you along. Here is the posting schedule and a suggested guideline of posting topics to help keep you on track.

April 3 - Introduce your room and tell us your plan.

April 10 - What did you accomplish or learn?

April 17 - Did you score any amazing finds or have a cool DIY you                            want to share?

April 24 - Are you still on track? Did you modify your plans? Week                            4 is hard!

May 1 - How's it going? Are you happy with your choices? Hang in                            there.

May 8You made it. Even if you are not totally finished, you are                                further than you were six weeks ago.

Did you notice that you actually have two more weeks before you need to start showing some results? You can do this!

I hope to see all of your rooms on Thursday, April 3rd. Now go tell your friends because it really is more fun when you have people encouraging you. 

In other news, Albertina is being featured on Polyvore for Project Decorate. You can enter her contest, here

Will try to join Linda, but my life is bit 'complicated' right now ( you'll find out soon enough why). I really want to, you know I do, and I will probably do a simple one hopefully. Anyway, I'm going to follow along everyone else's projects, this is one Linky party I try not to miss any entries of!

I cannot wait to get started! I am still debating on which room, but I think I have it narrowed down. And it's gonna be awesome!

I hope I can keep up. I have a lot of major things planned like carpet and wallpaper. I'm excited about it though and about seeing all of the other transformations.

I'm a little new here...stumbled across "the challenge" last year and thought it looked like fun. Now I see it's open to others. Really? So I can just jump in? I have all these projects languishing in my home, which is terrible! (feel like the proverbial cobbler). I'm now trying to get the hubs help to start our living room and am thinking this is the motivation...so really. Anyone can join in? Even a newbie?

TheKimSix Fix said...

I'm in! I did my baby's nursery last year and it was so motivating, i am going to do it again!

Dana Casey said...

After much debate (we have spring break in the middle of this!)I am so excited to join! Looking forward to it. Thanks so much for putting this together.

Holy Craft said...

I'm joining in! I hope this motivates me to finish my son's room that I have been thinking about for nearly a year! Can't wait to be motivated to work on it!

Holly said...

I'm IN and totally pumped! Already started gathering a few items from around our house to use because I'm going to do this on a budget.

Holly said...

PS - Is there an official hashtag? :)

Krista @ Goodwill Glam said...

That's it! I'm joining in! I need to get my rear in gear where my dining room is concerned so this may be just the push I need!

Best,
Krista
