I have been invited to be a part of the Color My World Challenge along with an amazing group of talented bloggers! Someone pinch me. Eeee!!!

So, here’s the rundown – over the next four weeks I’ll be incorporating a color I’ve not decorated with before into a room in my house.  I needed to get cracking in my dining room so that’s going to be the room under attack ๐Ÿ˜€ 
Are you ready for it?!  The color I’m going with is…

That’s right, PINK baby!!!
I’m terrified, hahaha!  I love how splashes of pink can really energize a room, but I’ve always thought I wasn’t cool enough to pull it off.  Well, I’m going to give it the ol college try anyway. 
So, check back next Tuesday to see how I’ve started to incorporated pink into my dining room.  Wish me luck.  I’m going to need it.

    Those first two pictures are bliss. I LOVE pink and if my husband would give me the green light it would be all over the place. Sadly, I've been given the red light:(
    I'm terrified of the weeks ahead as well. I'm wondering if I'm in over my head.
