If you are here for the first time Welcome! My name is Jeanie. I am a recent empty-nester who also recently retired early so I’ve got lots of time on my hands to do what I love most: do it yourself projects (diys), crafts, room makeovers and home decorating projects. I just love to make things – pretty things!
This is my fourth go-round with the One Room Challenge®. I learned so much from my first two attempts and I hope that this third time will be the best one yet!
FULL DISCLOSURE: I had started this Master Bedroom Makeover back in April. Then suddenly I had to have emergency surgery right after Week Three and was out of commission for six weeks and had to quit the challenge. Now I am back to finish!
Here is where I started in April:
The One Room Challenge® (ORC®) is a bi-annual event, put on by Linda from Calling It Home. Over the course of six weeks, 20 design bloggers make over a room and share weekly updates on the progress of their rooms on Wednesdays. On Thursdays, the rest of us Guest Participants, link up our weekly updates. We cheer each other on through the chaos of making over a room in six short weeks!
Last fall I made over my laundry closet. I know that sounds rather boring, but trust me. That laundry room is anything but boring. Seriously! Go check it out! It’s the most glam laundry closet that you ever did see! It was so much fun because it’s a small space that’s hidden behind bi-fold doors so I went a little crazy behind those doors and gave my laundry closet a glam makeover. I love it!
But I am done with it. Finally! I’ve been living with an orange master bedroom ever since I bought this house back in 2008. I knew back then that this room would be on the list for a makeover and I’m happy to say that it’s time!
THE PLAN (in no particular order):
- Get rid of the orange!
- Farmhouse style bed with headboard and footboard
- Build two side tables to coordinate with bed
- Find two farmhouse style table lamps and a coordinating floor lamp
- Paint the upholstered rocking chair
- New bedding
- Build a framed mirror
- Install a faux ship-lap wall behind bed
- Make pretty wall art
- New curtains
- Make “L” shaped window seats and create a reading nook in the “bump out”
- Get rid of a chest of drawers
I am hoping to stay under $1,000. Wish me luck!
