Week 6: Final Reveal

I am so excited to share this post with you! It is week 6 of the One Room Challenge and it is time to do the final reveal! I can honestly say all our hard work, late nights, one million twelve trips to Home Depot and sweat has paid off!!

I. Love. Our. “New”. Master. Bedroom.

It is everything I hoped for…. I know I’ve said this before, but this was supposed to be my summer holidays project. And here we are, only at the beginning of May and we are done! Yay, yay, yay!!!! Follow our progress in Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4 and Week 5.

So without further ado, let’s begin, shall we? This post will be all about pictures. I hope to do a more detailed post with all the sources and some tutorials next week!

No makeover would be complete without some before pictures.



The look we were aiming for was a very white, cheery and soothing look, saying goodbye to the gold, drabby (if there is such a word!) curtains, and all the brown tones. I am so, so exited with our new look! So here it is…


I love, love all the whites in our bedroom. One of my favorite features is this board and batten headboard my husband made. That man never ceases to amaze me!!! It makes such a bold statement against the grey wall and bedding.

I’m so happy how the dresser and end tables turned out. πŸ™‚


Remember that beautiful dated, not-so-pretty coffee table I found off our garage sale site? Well, here she is with a whole new look! I love our new bench for the foot of our bed!


…. and our dresser! I keep saying I wish I would have done this a long time ago because it has made such a big difference. I especially love all the shiny, glass hardware.



Another favorite feature is this gallery wall! I could just lounge in this beautiful room and look at those sweet faces in the pictures all day long!


And just another angle …





I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Linda, our fabulous and encouraging host for this challenge! Being held accountable and having to report my progress each Thursday was just what I needed for this makeover. I am tired but happy to have “met” so many fabulous and motived DIYers through this whole challenge! And thanks to you, my wonderful readers, for following along and all the encouraging and sweet comments you’ve left for me! They mean a lot!

Until next time,

  7. Adeline Mills says:

    Love the bedspread and neutral pallet! We recently did our bedroom too, and I was nervous about the faux florals I have included, but I like the tulips you have on the tray. Are they faux? If so that helps inspire me to keep mine!

    • Kendra says:

      Thanks so much, Adeline! I appreciate your kind comments! Yes, those tulips are faux πŸ˜‰ I love how real they look though! Thanks for stopping by!
