It’s that time of the year again when your social media feed is filled with room makeovers and DIY projects! Yes, it’s the first week of the One Room Challenge. If you haven’t heard of it, this is a challenge hosted by Linda from Calling It Home. She challenges home interiors bloggers to totally complete a room within six weeks. This time I will be working on our bland and boring master bedroom to create a relaxing and cohesive space.
I participated for the first time in the One Room Challenge as a guest in the Spring 2017 challenge. My goal at that time was to finish installing, caulking, filling nail holes, and painting all the trim and doors in our house. I documented my progress by way of our main floor hallway. I did not complete that massive goal, I don’t even know what I was thinking. That was a huge job, and was totally unattainable. I did finish the hallway though, and you can check out the final reveal here to see my freshly painted trim and colorful gallery wall.
For this Fall 2017 One Room Challenge, I will be finishing off our master bedroom. My main goal with this challenge is to finish off the trim and add a check mark to the Master To-do List.
The master bedroom ends up being the place we pile stacks of laundry, dump our tools, and generally just store things there that we don’t know where else to put them. My goal is to make the master bedroom cozy and cohesive, and figure out systems to reduce clutter.
On the to-do list for the master bedroom:
Finish installing some remaining pieces of trim
Caulk, fill nails holes, and do two coats of paint on the trim and doors
Install one last pocket door hardware
Create an inexpensive accent wall
Makeover some yard sale bedside tables
Upholster the bed
Add some art to the walls
Develop a better system to reduce clutter
Over the next 6 weeks I’ll be tackling those projects, in no particular order (though I keep telling myself I should finish the trim before I get to all the pretty and fun stuff). And I’ll be sharing my progress with you each week!
The design plan for the room will include the cherry dressers (which Tony made, so I don’t ever want to get rid of). The colors will be grey, white, probably blues and greens with pops of bright color.
To be honest I’m lacking a bit of inspiration for this room. It is just so boring, and I can’t quite figure out how I want it, so who really knows how it will end up. If you have any ideas for me, I would love to hear them! And please, sign up for email to see how this room turns out, it will be a surprise for all of us!
