Wow! What a transformation in this room! We are almost finished, and I’m so grateful for the One Room Challenge proving to me that I truly am capable of finishing a space from start to finish in a just a few weeks time. In the past I’ve let my projects drag on indefinitely, so finishing one this quickly is absolutely empowering!
At the beginning of the week, I assembled the girl’s dresser! It was quite a project and took the whole morning to put the piece together, but it’s perfect in the space, and I can’t wait to spend some time styling it this week!
Next, I painted all but the accent wall white, a sure fire way to brighten and clean up a space. The ceilings in this room are tray, and with the walls and ceiling the same color, it definitely makes this room feel taller.
On Friday, Isla and I put together both of the girl’s beds. They were surprisingly easy to assemble, and add just a touch of girliness to the space without being over the top for my two tomgirls.
Last we added in the area rug. In my idea board it was too busy, but in reality it’s not too much. Just a little bit more pattern than I would normally be ok with, but sometimes it’s good to put something in your space that’s a little ‘off’. The imperfectness of it all lends a bit of unexpected personality, so I’m quite loving it all together! Although as much as my girls may fight me, I think I might need to change our their mustard pillows for some pink ones to tie the rug color in.
I’ve had some amazing partners sponsor the bedding in this room, and I’ll be honest, these beds are so comfy they revile my own. It makes my heart so happy to tuck the girls in bed at night surrounded with the softest sheets and blankets. I cannot wait to share with you all the details.
This week is the final week of the challenge. I’ll be busting my tail trying to finish up the space.
I’d love to instal a wall sconce between the two beds, as well as some art. Style off the big dresser, and also add a small dresser in between the beds for extra storage.
My plan was to have a bench at the foot of the bed, but I don’t think there’s going to be enough space, so I’ll be skipping that for this project.
I’m already in love with the space, and absolutely cannot wait to share the finished product with you all next week!
