TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #49 ORC PLANS
Take a look at last week’s party!
Welcome back to Tuesday Turn About. Michelle, Carol, and I are so blessed to have you visit each week! Really!
This week was the second week of the ORC!
What is the ORC? It’s the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda from Calling It Home and Better Homes and Gardens!
The One Room Challenge features 20 hand-picked bloggers, and a plethora of guest bloggers, that are challenged (duhhh) to makeover a room in their home and then blog about it during the allotted time span (usually 6 weeks, but this year’s challenge is 8 weeks because… well… #stayhome).
What a great way to get a room project done and inspire others at the same time! (I’m hoping to jump on the bandwagon for the next challenge!)
This week, I’m featuring just three of the guest bloggers joining the Spring 2020 ORC, and all three are doing bedroom makeovers, too. I hope you enjoy and are inspired by their plans as much as I am!

So, let’s get this party started!
Weekly Blogging Tip
As promised, we are taking a tiny break from Pinterest tips to bring you a ‘dashboard’ tip. You know, something behind the scenes of your blog.
When linking to an external post, whether it be an affiliate link, a link to another blogger’s post, your own Pinterest account, or anything else that is NOT part of your own website, be sure to mark the link as “open in new tab/window”. This way, your reader can easily switch back to your site, and Google recognizes it as longer time spent on your blog.
Feel free to comment below if you need some additional help or if you’d like to expound on the tip! If you comment, we can all learn together!
Weekly Household Tip
When storing coffee cups, think about going ‘down under’… your cabinets, that is.
Add hooks under your cabinets, or even on your wall above your counter, to create additional storage.
It can be pretty, too! Think about displaying mugs in a tight color palette (all white or all black), or coordinate your mugs in different colors or complimentary patterns.
Though not a requirement at all, we would love it if you would subscribe and/or follow your hostesses on one or more of our social medias:

This Week’s Features:
ORC Master Bedrooom
One of my fave decor and DIY bloggers is Ashley from Cherished Bliss. Her use of a limited color palette, yet still making her home interesting and comfortable, is an amazing God-given talent. Take a look at her plans for her master bedroom.
ORC Diva Den
Okay… so this isn’t exactly a bedroom… but I bet this photo has you wondering, “What in the world do hats have to do with interior design?” Well, Janet from JRL Interiors is sharing her plans for a “diva den”, and what inspired her!
ORC Master Bedroom, II
I’m super excited to see the changes and progress of Kippi’s Master Bedroom during the One Room Challenge. I love her mood board, but I think it is very cool that she is sharing her floor plan, too! Hop on over to Kippi At Home to see what plans she has for her master bedroom.
Check out our Tuesday Turn About Link Party Pinterest board! All NINE featured posts are pinned to this board each week!
Now It’s Your Turn! Link Away!
Let’s start sharing! Because this is a party, we encourage all who link up to visit several other bloggers who have linked as well – comments and pins are a great way to spread the love!
Before you get started, take a look at our guidelines:
- This party is for home decor and home-related posts only (recipes, organizing, DIY, crafts, etc.). Link up to 3 related posts. Please do not link up informational posts that do not relate to the topic.
- If you would please not link up shops, advertising, round-ups, other link parties, or any posts promoting sales, we would appreciate it.
- DO NOT PIN FROM IMAGES ON THIS PAGE (it just won’t work right on Pinterest). However, please visit the original post/source and pin from there. That works perfectly!
- By linking to the party, you give us permission to share your projects on our blogs and social media. We will always give proper credit with a no-pin image.
I’m looking forward to seeing more ORC progress, along with summer posts that are starting to trickle in!

Happy to have you with us, Anita!
Julie – what a great idea for features – I can’t wait to read about the ORC! I’d love to join you next year. Thanks for the tips too. And thanks as always for hosting this party. Take care and stay safe!
Wouldn’t it be fun to do the ORC? They actually do two a year, so it would be sooner than later. 😉
Thanks for hosting, Julie! I hope you’re having a lovely week and doing well.
Thanks for joining, Bev! Hugs!
I love the one room challenges. I’ve seen Kippi’s plans for the bedroom and they are lovely!

Glad to have you here each week, my friend!
Thank you for hosting! This is what I featured the week of 5-11 to 5-15 on my blog. On Tuesday was Crock Pot Chili Poor Man’s Style. Wednesday was GF Raspberry Lemonade Cake. Thursday was Easy Homemade GF Bread. And winding up this Week my How To Meal Plan 101. Enjoy!
Always wonderful to have you with us, Marilyn!

Hehe, by the title I thought you were participating in ORC. Thought you were going to be making the Diva Den.
Oh, now I see why people may think that! Oops! LOL!
I always look forward to the bi-annual ORC challenges. So many creative DIY savvy participants and such fun to watch the transformations. Hope you’re having a good week, Julie!
I agree, Marie… LOTS of inspiration from the ORC participants! Hope you had a great week!
How fun that you are in the One Room Challenge, best of luck to you! I will check out your project. Thanks for hosting this beautiful party.
Oh, Heidi… I’m hoping to be in the ORC NEXT time, but I have lots of blogging friends that are doing it this time around! Lots of fun!
I’ve always wanted to participate in the ORC too (well, not always but ever since I read about them while blogging). They sound so fun.
Me, too, Joanne! A bit intimidating, but it would be fun for sure!
Thank you so much for hosting the party. I love your encouraging words about my master bedroom makeover. It is not the best time to find everything, but I am going forward with what I can find. Keeping positive is the name of the game at this time with so much concern over the virus.
Have a wonderful week
Oh, I think you’ll do a bang-up job, Kippi! And it seems like a lot of stores are now opening, at least in my area. Looking forward to seeing your new bedroom!
Love these pretty features, Julie, the ORC is always so much fun! Thanks so much for hosting. I hope you’re having a great week. Hugs, CoCo
Thanks, CoCo… I’m hoping to join the next ORC. It’s a bit daunting, but worth it, I think!
Loving your features this week Julie! Thank you for hosting this amazing party!
So glad you linked-up… I love your home!
Thanks so much for being a gracious host! I’ll have to study up on the dashboard tip! Have a great weekend!
Thank you for joining us each week, Gena! Hugs!
