One Room Challenge: Week 4 Progress During Spring Break

Happy Thursday y’all!! Once again, welcome back to the 6 week One Room Challenge! I keep thinking to myself how happy I am to be a part of this challenge because I know without a doubt, we wouldn’t be this far along if we weren’t working on a deadline. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the ORC, you can read here about Week 1, Week 2 and Week 3.

This is our inspiration board:

Linda, our host, mentioned that this week can be one of the most challenging. I know what she means… so I’m not surprised as I sit here and feel like I don’t have anything huge to reveal that we did this past week. Nevertheless, there were little things that I checked off our to do list and being in the middle of spring break has kinda put things at a slower pace as well. During Easter weekend we took a mini road trip and I’m feeling a little behind now, but I sure don’t regret time spent away with my sweet family! We’ll get our workin’ boots on this weekend and hopefully show you some big and fabulous accomplishments next week!

My husband built this fabulous board and batten headboard for behind our bed. It still needs a couple coats of paint, but I thought I’d show you anyway. I am loving the way it looks already! If you remember our before pictures, our room was sooo drab looking with gold curtains and lots of brown tones and I find myself saying over and over I love how bright it’s beginning to look. Love, love all the whites!!


and one more…


The fabric we ordered from Tonic Living arrived this week. I was so excited to receive it…. it looks as beautiful as I pictured!


Just in case you missed it last week, this is the coffee table I found at an extremely awesome price and we’re going to work some magic on this one and make it into a bench 🙂 I am so excited about it!


My big dilemma now is finding hardware for the dresser and end tables.

So …. here’s our TO DO list for this next week:

* prime dresser and end tables

* find hardware for dresser and end tables

* recover lampshades (found fabric this week!!)

* coffee table transformation to a end-0f-the-bed bench 🙂

* finish painting board and batten head board

* still looking for some pieces for our gallery wall, so I’m hoping this next week something jumps out at me and captures my attention)

We are getting down to the wire, friends!!! This is a project that I was totally saving for summertime …. I can hardly believe it’ll be done in a couple weeks!! Thanks so much for coming by ad following along on this fun journey!

Until next time,

    Love how that white is popping against the brown!! ..and you’re so right, week 4 is definitely not a high point.. more like a medium point! lol! but your space is coming along great! I LOVE the to-be bench!! How about Anthro for hardware? They’ve got an entire huge rolling rack of awesome unique drawer pulls! lol! Can’t wait to see it all come together!
