Can you believe that it’s week 6! It’s been a lot of fun doing the One Room Challenge that was created by Linda of Calling it Home, but I must admit I’m happy it’s over. I have been exhausted! I was running around doing projects till the last minute. Hopefully the reveal is worth the wait. If you want to see where we started check it out here.
As a little reminder to all I decided that I wanted to leave the paint color as is and give everything else a face lift!
When you walk in you are now met with this dreamy set up. Originally I wanted to have a gallery wall behind the bed, but I left printing my free printable artwork to the last minute and I had massive issues at Staples so alas I had to scrap it for now. I love it the way it is now, but we shall see if it stays as is.
In love with the scalloped corners on my new bordeaux duvet cover from Land of Nod. Sometimes kids bedding works perfectly in an adult space and they are typically more price friendly!
The mirror just left as is and I picked up a new to me desk for $37 and then a new to me chair for $40 from local thrift stores.
The desk top got a new look with striped wrapping paper from HomeGoods and some double sided tape. I’m still waiting on a glass top to arrive to protect the protect the paper.
I’m not a pro with a sewing machine, but give me a staple and/or glue gun and I’m in business. I recovered this beauty myself.
The chandelier got a little revamp as well. I spray painted the beads pink and then used Rub n Buff patina rub to add a little green to the metal.
The striped nightstand lamps got some added chicness from these stunning Hillary Thomas finials.
Stripes plus floral chintz is just a perfect combo to me! More details on the caned headboard next week.
I always was intrigued by Kelly Wearstler’s graffiti staircaseso in order to test it myself I decided to try it out first on an massive canvas and I love it.
Love all of the peeks of my mom’s blue and white ginger jar collection. I want to slowly take away a jar one visit at a time.
The window got dressed with my amazing GP&BAKER floral chintz score. I love the little window seating area below.
Cool panoramic shot of the room via my iphone.
Ah! It’s so serene and pretty. I’m going to make sure I get to stay in this guest room when I sleep over at my parents house. Granted I must disclose I live a 2 min drive away from my parents house so I never really have to sleep over, but I will nap there!
A big thanks to Lindafor hosting this challenge. Without her push I probably would have left this room as is for another couple of months. My mom thanks you as well. She is so happy with the new space!
Make sure you check out all of the other room reveals here!
