One Room Challenge: Week One, My Room INTRO & PLAN

Hello Everyone!
I am excited to tell you about a challenge I’m going to participate in!!! Linda over at Calling it Home has challenged 20 home-design bloggers to make over a space and show their progress over 6 weeks. This is so exciting for me, because Linda has invited anyone else to come share a room or space we’d like to make over as well.

I knew right away which room in our home I was going to tackle. Without a doubt, it’s our master bedroom. We have done many upgrades in our home, but our bedroom has always been put on the back burner. It’s the one room where the door always gets shut when company is coming. Stuff gets dumped there and sad to say, it is in dire need of some TLC! So, without further ado, I am going to show you some before pictures!


This wall has the walk-in closet and onsuite bathroom doors on it. Also the beautiful location of our ironing board, the place where anything and everything gets stored. My goal for this space is a beautiful gallery wall and to finally put that board and iron in its rightful place— in the laundry room. Surprise, surprise!


There are actually 2 windows like this on this wall, both with these gorgeous ugly curtains on them. They are gold and make the room look so blah and dreary. I’m hoping for something white and sheer to give the a brighter look but still give I a soft and warm feel.


The reason I’m entering this challenge is to give me a push to hopefully finish or even get close to finishing this room by May 8. We’re going to be trying to keep the cost to a minimal and hoping to score a few deals on some pieces for the wall gallery and hopefully a bench for the foot of the bed. I have been putting off redoing our dresser and end tables for over a year now but this challenge just might have me busy sanding and painting by next week! Yeaa!!!!!!

Here is our 6 week plan for our bedroom:

* Re-do dresser and end tables in white

* Bigger lamps and a chandelier

* Gallery wall

*  New bedding

* End of bed bench

* Curtains

* and maybe, just maybe…. a board and batten head board! 😉

Here’s our inspiration board… I love all the beautiful whites in these rooms!

Please come join me each Thursday as I share my progress with you. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

Until next time,

    We had the same scenario in our home–we updated all the rooms but saved our master bedroom for last. Finally when we got it done we were so happy we wished we’d done it sooner!
    I can’t wait to see how yours turns out! I love your inspiration–especially the board and batten headboard!

      Thanks so much Carrie! Isn’t that the way it goes?? We’ll probably be wishing we’d have done it sooner, too! Thanks for stopping by, Friend!
