I’m really excited to take part in the famous blog-world showcase that is the One Room Challenge for my very first time! We’ve lived in our little cape for 5 and a half years, and this was the perfect excuse to refresh our master bedroom.
When we bought the house, I went to Home Depot and in one fell swoop picked out all of the colors for the entire house. Ignorance is bliss – I wasn’t too picky so I just jumped in feet first. I picked this mustardy color for the master and while I was ‘eh’ about it once it got on the walls, I’ve been soooooo over it for the past 4 years.
Considering budget is always a factor, this makeover will likely be another culmination of craigslist finds – lets hope I can find what I need in time for the reveal! I plan on selling a lot of what we currently have, and making a lighter yet eclectic space that feels much more ‘us’.
Here’s what I’m currently working with and what needs to get done:
The way it is now is not the worst bedroom I’ve ever seen, but there’s so much room for improvement. I think the only things that are staying are the photo ledge and the closets, and even those are getting oomphed up.
Here’s a quick little moodboard to give you a feel of the vibe overall
Layered rugs, lucite pulls, a DIY headboard – we have quite a lot to do! Not to mention I have to replace all the furniture, so let’s hope that Craigslist and the thrift gods are good to me over these next 6 weeks. Poor Vito is going to be busy!
I hope you follow along with me over the course of the One Room Challenge, I’ll be posting updates and tutorials as I make my way through this room refresh. Take a look at all of the participants (there are over 150!) for a ton of inspiration and talent
Anyone else redecorating? What kind of projects do you have on your plate?
