Today begins the crazy interior design adventure that is the One Room Challenge. If you aren't familiar, it's a blog series / audacious challenge organized by the wonderful Linda at Calling It Home. Read all about the challenge on her blog here

I'm participating as a linking participant, which means that in addition to the 20 bloggers Linda will be featuring, I will be doing my project in REAL TIME as well. One room in 6 weeks= mad adventure. So come by every Thursday for the crazy week-by-week play by play.

I am tackling my laundry room. Hold your breath, here it is:

I'm going to be asking A LOT of my laundry room. It needs to be a little mud room of sorts for my soon to be 5 kids, a folding space / storage space for all of our laundry (it's a lot) and storage for stuff I access on the regular like props for styling gigs. I will be doing this project very much in real time- so today I'll be sitting down and finalizing all the design plans and confirming what materials to order so I can order them STAT. I hope you'll join along!
