One Room Challenge (Dining Room) - Week 4

Say whaaat?! It's week FOUR of the One Room Challenge people! That means we have two weeks left until our final reveals!! Am I nervous? YES! Am I excited YES! This room has actually completely gone in a different direction than my original vision for it when we moved in (November).  I think that's a good thing though because I wasn't sure of how the house would "feel" before or the "vibe" it would take on once all four of us actually lived in it.  

Check out all the ORC guest participants here......ORC Link

My original idea for this room was simple, bright and coastal.  Then as I began actually planning out the design I decided that the "less is more" look wasn't really for me.  It could be because this room sat so bare and empty for months that I just desperately needed STUFF to fill my dining room void. Either way with only two weeks left in the challenge I am feeling great about the transformation thus far.  (Check out the three ORC previous weekly posts on the blog)

This week I focused on adding a few decor pieces.  Now that the wallpaper is up and the curtains are hung it was fun to choose some unique items that kept the room bright and light but added that touch of coastal I wanted.

I want to give a big Thank You to Bealls Outlet for partnering up with me on the gorgeous decor!  If you have never been to a Bealls Outlet you are missing out! They are located in Florida, Georgia and Arizona and carry tons of brand name apparel and accessories for the whole family at up to 70% off! Plus most stores (like mine) also carry home furnishings! Use this link to find your local Bealls Outlet!

Obviously blue is the color I'm going with here, but not just one shade..any shade! Here are the goodies I found at Bealls Outlet! 

I found this beautiful piece of coral and had to have it.  I think by now most of you know me...seahorses and coral are my love language.  I mean it's blue and coral!  No need to say more!

 I thought that this lantern was unique looking plus I love the rope handle.  The inside has a little tea light holder too which is perfect a little dinner mood lighting!  This blue was a little cooler than any other shade in the room so far which also made it a winner! I love that it's beachy but not toooo beachy. Does that make sense? You guys get it! 

On my first trip there I found this framed and matted sea urchin wall art hidden behind some larger prints and I swear I looked around like I had just found someones hidden treasure.  Gray whitewashed frame, white matting and BLUE sea urchins! Best part was the $19.99 price tag! Talk about luck! I hung this piece on the wall opposite the accent wall this week.  I'm digging it next to our black coat closet too so win win.

Okay so let me explain the above.  This, my friends is how I decide on mirror shapes and sizes.  Hahaha. Very, very fancy over here.  The buffet is the main focal point in the room.  Also where the decor is going.  Just like anything I decorate I needed height.  I found those two metallic seashell HUGE (it's hard to tell but trust me) candle pillars over at Bealls Outlet and I swear it's like they were waiting for me.  With so much natural wood happening in the room I really needed something to spice it up.  Done! 

During week one I shared my gorgeous new cross back dining chairs from Lexmod Furniture.  I did keep my two end dining chairs to go along with the four new ones.  While I was out shopping at Bealls Outlet last week I came across this pillow and thought it looked just like the wallpaper.  So obviously I needed to have it.  

And last but not least I found this tall galvanized vase which is also perfect for some height.  I think the magnolia stems look so pretty in it!! Originally I would have thought to stick some palm fronds...but like I keep saying everything I "thought" isn't how it's working out! 

Having the decor pieces out, the wallpaper up, the curtains hung, the dining room is really coming together and now that I have found two potential mirrors for above the buffet I see the end in sight! I have narrowed it down to two and I think I will give each a chance for a few days until I fall in love with one! This way next week I should be able to share more "whole room" shots with you guys! 
Thanks for stopping by!

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to 
Lexmod Furniture WallPops Bealls Outlet
Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".

The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!

When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas Blog Hop

I am so excited to share that Sunny Chic Home is a part of the 2017 Treetopia Christmas Blog Hop!
This years theme couldn't be more perfect... Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas!
 Treetopia wants to help you add some sparkle to your holidays by celebrating a glitz and glam Christmas with the Treetopia bloggers!
I am kicking off the season with a very Merry CHIC-Mas themed master bedroom! Make sure to check out the four other fabulous bloggers this week!

You all know by now I love me some Christmas spirit in the bedroom and in our new home the master is light and bright so I wanted to continue that in the holiday decor.
  I chose to use the GORGeous Treetopia 7' prelit Tinkerbell Silver Christmas Tree. The silvery tinsel tips add such a magical touch and the width of 47" make the tree such a great piece and perfect CHIC-mas addition to any room.

EASY Master Closet Makeover...I'm talking NO tools needed!

As most of you know a couple weeks ago I got so sick and tired of my crazy disaster of a master closet I decided to take on organizing it....however not just cleaning it out.  I needed to come up with a better closet system for my husband and I.  
Originally I thought "Hey, I'll take down all these rods and buy a closet system that drills into the wall...and it will be so fun and easy!"
HAHAHAHAHA.  Yeaaaaaa right! Those bad boys are expensive and who is kidding who here I can barely use a drill.  SO then I decided to look for simple closet systems that would solve the issues we had in our closet.  Which were:
1. Shoes 2. Purses 3. Hats
These three issues were what really dragged it down and made it look like a hurricane swept through.  You can take a look at the "BEFORE" pics below as long as you promise not to judge!  I originally told you all I wasn't going to share my "befores" but a lot of you got a little angry at me..and you were totally right.  …
