Hey everyone!! If you‘re new here, my name is Jenna and I am the face behind From House To Home. I am a proud prairie girl living in Saskatchewan, CANADA! As a mom to 3 young girls, it excites me to be able to show my girls that anything they put their minds too, they can achieve. A year and a half ago, I decided that after 5 years of living in our current builder-grade house that I wanted to finally make it feel like a home (even if it isn‘t our forever home). Room by room, I transformed spaces in my home, learnt new skills, and new tools.
Now that you all know my background a bit better, let‘s get to the project reveal! I am beyond excited to have been selected as a featured designer for the Fall 2021 ORC in partnership with Better Homes And Gardens and to finally get to reveal the space I will be working on this season! The One Room Challenge, if not familiar, happens twice a year and encourages DIYers, interior designers, and home owners alike, to complete a room in 8 weeks. It‘s a community that uplifts and encourages week-by-week and even beyond the challenge. We are all winners. Some of us, it‘s the first time renovating a space and others are seasoned vets but in the end, we are all here to support each other in our transformations!
This will be my third One Room Challenge. I completed my Laundry Room in the Fall 2020 ORC and converted our old playroom into a “Retreat” for guests and our family to relax in during the Spring 2021 ORC. This Fall, I will be taking a room in my home that has lacked function and organization for over 6 years. My goal for 2021 is to bring function to each space and ensure it aligned with our lifestyle and this room is one that my family is in DAILY! It‘s a room that I have shown a very small amount of times, HOWEVER, I did mention it at the beginning of the year as a potential project. Do you remember what room is it?
Get ready, it‘s time for the PANTRY PROJECT to begin and for my kitchen to be in complete chaos for a few weeks while I take this space from builder-grade boring to a space with function and character that works for my entire family…including our 7 month old puppy, Mylo!
Unorganized chaos is one way to describe this space. Monthly, I find myself in here sorting each shelf in hopes that it will remain organized only to find the next day, my kids have shuffled a few things around or my husband and I have a new food item to add with no spot for it. Now, with a puppy added to the family, his large food bin sits awkwardly in the middle which also give our youngest daughter a “stepping stool” to reach the “forbidden treats” hidden on higher shelves.
As you can see, pure chaos! There is no system and it just feels full and cluttered. I am working with 8ft x 6ft so it isn’t huge but I am certain I can give it the make-over it so desperately needs. My plan is to open it up, bring in some tones, and create a system that works. This builder-grade pantry is getting a make-over and I can’t wait to show you the plan for it next week!

In the mean-time, be sure to check out all the other incredible featured designers project reveals! I can’t wait to see everyones rooms come together the next 8 weeks and meet so many
