Hi Glam readers! Remember HGTV Design Star?
I was very disappointed when it was cancelled and didn't run last year. One of my favorite weeks on Design Star was the white box challenge!
It was so fun to watch how they took a plain white box and did amazing things in a very short time.

They started with this totally blank canvas and then turned it into something amazing!
This room was one of my favorites! The bold colors paired with the graphic punches are just my kind of thing.
This room in black and white and gold is also beautiful.
This room was amazing and I happened to have went to high school with Mark Diaz...crazy, I know! He probably doesn't even remember me, because I think we only spoke like twice, but I'm pretty sure we would have been fast friends...given our love for design and all. I assure you, he was just as adorable in high school...but I digress.
Amazing that someone could see past a plain, white box and see this!
Which brings me to my own challenge. Remember when I mentioned that I would be tackling my biggest design challenge yet? Hold on to your hats, because it's a little scary!
This is a 933 square foot room that was used as nothing more than a storage unit before. What will it be? Our apartment. You still breathing?
This space will be turned into an apartment/parsonage for the church we are now pastoring. It was one, big open space so we had to come up with a floor plan that would work for us and maximize the limited space. We started by coming up with the plan and framing out the rooms.
So far we've framed out all the rooms....
And we're nearly done with the drywall. Hopefully, we'll be able to get the drywall finished in the next day or two and get a quote on the mudding/finishing of the walls this week.
It is my Everest. I'm fully confident that it will be amazing when we're done! I can't wait to show you more!
What do you think?
Have you ever designed a space completely from scratch before?
I have a clear vision in my head of the finished product and how nearly each space will be decorated, so that really helps.
Do you have any advice?
I would love any input you might have! Or, if you just want to cheer me on, that would be fine too.
I could totally use the support! ;)
