Welcome back to week 3 of the ORC! We are halfway there, friends…. it kinda scares me just typing this!
I want to tell you about the bed we decided to go with for this makeover. If you remember week 1, we shared our plans and inspiration boards with you. I love this daybed from Ikea but wasn’t sure if we could DIY her existing one into this style or if we would buy new. While we love DIYing crazy hard stuff such as this and this, we decided to buy the bed from Ikea. We were able to sell our daughter’s old bed which helped with the cost for the new one. It’s even on sale right now if you’d like to buy it here!
I am so happy with this bed! Love the style and especially the wainscot style on the back and sides!
Sorry for the picture overload! It is just too pretty!
Who assembles the furniture in your home? My husband (being the sweetheart that he is!!) always does it in our home … and usually dreads it, except when it’s Ikea stuff! Seriously, he always says it’s a dream to assemble! Great instructions and everything bagged and labeled perfectly! This bed was no different. As you can see, it pulls out to make a king size bed. It is the neatest thing really! The three drawers underneath are seriously huge… perfect for a little girl who loves clothes! They are so big that you could easily use one for toys if it’s for a younger child.
I was also soo happy to see that
ugly dated, purple stained glass light fixture go! We were actually able to sell it as well (for as much as this new, pretty one cost!!!) If you can imagine that! Anyone that knows me, knows I love to score a good deal and I’m so happy with this one! It’s just the perfect addition of bling!
It feels so good to cross of a couple more things on our list!
Paint walls. Goodbye purple and pink!
Change light fixture.
Change door and closet knobs.
New bed…. whether we diy her current one or get a new one altogether.
- New nightstand and
- Gallery wall.
- Large area rug.
- Organize and declutter.
- Make/sew new bedding.
While it looks like we’ve done a lot, I feel like the harder stuff is yet to come! I realllllly wanted to have my mom make our own duvet cover and shams from material I would buy but I haven’t found what I’m looking for! I love this floral print from Pottery Barn but with the exchange rate and all, it might not fit into our budget! We’ll see what next week brings…
Be sure to check out all the other ORC participants at Calling It Home. There’s some amazing makeovers going on and love following along!
Have a wonderful day everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by!
