One Room Challenge Week 3

Can you believe it’s already the halfway point in the One Room Challenge? I’m playing along and FINALLY tackling my master bedroom decor plans. So far, I put together a mood board for making the space warm and cozy, and gave the walls a fresh coat of Para paint (as a member of the 2014 […]

One Room Challenge Week Two

Chez Nous: Starless Sky (#ParaBlogCrew)
