March Room Refresh Results

The March Room Refresh finished this past week and we are SO EXCITED about the results.  This challenge was SO MUCH FUN, and such a big learning experience for Jen, Chrissy and myself.  I think I speak for all of us when I say we hope to repeat this again down the road with some of the kinks worked out.  

The results were WAY too good not to share with all of you, so I wanted to be sure to give you a good look at everyone.

AND incase this all sounds like a bunch of crazy talk – the March Room Refresh was a home decor challenge, and at the end of this weekend, one of the lovely ladies who entered will win $250 for participating.  The best part is we are leaving the voting up to you all!
