One Room Challenge Spring '18: Reveal Day!

It’s week 6 and the end of the One Room challenge! aka Reveal Day!! I'm so excited to have completed yet another ORC and to share it all with you. If you are new to my blog, I’m so happy you've stopped by! I’m Jana Donohoe, an interior designer in Fayetteville, North Carolina and the mom of 3 busy kids. I specialize in residential remodels and family friendly interiors.  This is my 4th One Room Challenge as a guest participant.

I really want to thank Linda of Calling it Home for creating this challenge and for being so encouraging, especially when times get tough (AND they definitely do!). Without the One Room Challenge I think my house would still be in a state of ....well...let's just say: not living up to its full potential! :)

Before I give you the goods, let’s take a quick look at where I started 5 weeks ago. My dark boring foyer and my 37’ bowling alley hallway. To say it lacked interest might be an understatement.

Are you ready to see some AFTER photos now? Without further delay I bring you my new foyer and hallway. Now, I think this is the feeling of *welcome to my home* I have always wanted!

This little Target console table was used as a stand in for a chest I ordered that did not make this reveal. I really like it, so it might actually stay! And if you watched my Instagram stories you may have seen that my mirror showed up two times broken in pieces. Third time was a charm!

While I was updating the foyer and hallway I also decided my craft and linen closets needed to be cleaned out and reorganized. So, here are my pretty, clean closets.  No hiding things in the closets here anymore. This is the real deal.

I seriously never thought my linen closet would look so organized. Let me tell you about my favorite item in this closet. **The blanket bag**- it's da bomb! (Do people still say that?)  I have, I think, 8 - maybe 9 - blankets in that bag. Those blankets would have taken up at least 2 shelves in this closet if left to their own devices.
