as i write these words, i'm thinking to myself, 'am i really going to add something else to my plate right now?' the answer is a huge YES! i wasn't planning to be a guest participant with the One Room Challenge this time around, but it's been so long since i've joined in, and we're renovating our townhouse anyway, so what's the worst that could happen? right?
for those of you that aren't familiar, the One Room Challenge happens twice a year with Linda of blog 'Calling It Home.' you basically pick a room in your home and have 6 weeks to complete it, sharing your progress along with way. there are 20 featured designers that post on wednesdays, and anyone else can be a guest participant and post progress blogs on thursdays. i have participated 4 times before in our last house, making over our guest bathroom, kids' bathroom, master lounge and master dressing room.
i struggled with what to tackle this time around, many rooms need help, but i chose to focus on our master bedroom. i already tackled the kids' bedrooms, and since i can't fit the bathrooms into a 6 week schedule, this seemed to make the most sense and would complete the upstairs living areas. take a look at where this room started, caution, it's very green!
i told you. i love green, but not in my bedroom. and what's up with the shelf above my husband's closet doors? there are a few strange details happening in this room. i will say, we already have our wallpaper up and our new ceiling fan installed; we had all of that completed with the work in the boys' rooms. it helps, but the wallpaper looks funny against the green walls!
the closets are in terrible shape and desperately need an overhaul. see what i mean?
my plan for the room...
wallpaper accent wall - done
new modern ceiling fan - done
upgrade to a king size bed with a new mattress
new bedside tables
new bedding and decorative pillows
new closet systems
new window treatments
unpack all remaining boxes and put everything in its place!
that doesn't sound too difficult right? the countdown in on, so stay tuned and follow along every thursday until the reveal on november 9th! and as always, support the featured designers and other guest participants by checking in at Calling It Home, we all need encouragement while going through this process!
