#DBStar Week 1 Winner

I WON #DBSTAR!!!




I won, I won, I won! I can't believe it! Is this real life?! Ahhhhh :D



For those of you that may be scratching your heads wondering what DBStar is, I'm here to explain! Last week David Bromstad (winner of Design Star Season 1 and my design idol) gave up-and-coming designers an opportunity to get their names, and creations, out there.

To enter, all you had to do was submit a photo to him on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #DBStar. I submitted the photo of my DIY chunky wooden floating shelves I had previously posted on Instagram that were also part of my styling tips and tricks post:



And then I waited. And waited. And waited. I casually checked the hashtag #DBStar here and there to see the entries and holy. crap. I thought I didn't stand a chance!

Legit, have-a-degree-and-actual-paying-clients-and-lots-of-real-world-experience designers were submitting photos of the gorgeous rooms they designed and I submitted a picture of shelves. SHELVES! What was I thinking?! I thought that was it for me but it turns out it wasn't!

David has a sweet little write up on his blog that includes my shelves, my name, AND a link to my blog is on there. I'm hyperventilating a little bit, not gonna lie! Click over and check it out while I send virtual kisses to David all day long! In a non-creepy way of course… ;)

Thank you David! ♥
