Last month when I popped in to share my Spring Bottle Vases, I was just embarking on our most epic DIY journey yet as we signed on to take part in the One Room Challenge. Have you heard of it? Basically, we committed to making over one room in our home in just six weeks. Yep, SIX weeks! It was an absolute whirlwind, but I’m thrilled to say we made it through the other side and we really couldn’t be happier with the results! Curious about which room we chose to transform? You can check out our final reveal here! Here’s a little hint: it may just involve a perfectly weathered wood plank wall!

Antique Window Makeover (she: Kristi)
Antique Window Makeover – making it in the mountainsIn our old home, I had this lovely vintage window hanging over our fireplace. It’s so full of chippy rustic charm and I really love the personality that it injects into the room! Right from the start, I liked the white paint on the front, but I have to admit, I wasn’t exactly fond of the dark green colour on the side and back. Time for a makeover me-thinks!
Best Ever Macaroni Salad (she: Kristi)
Hello again OSSS readers! I’m Kristi from making it in the mountains and I’m back again to share another favorite recipe! This quick dish has been an absolute life saver as we trudge through month two of moving (you can check out a sneak peek of our new home here). Yes, you read that right … TWO MONTHS! Ugh! Anyway, all whining aside, this pasta salad has become our go-to side dish simply because it’s SO easy to whip up a big ol’ batch of it, not to mention it’s SUPER yummy and goes with pretty much everything! I just know y’all are going to LOVE it too!
