Bedroom Overhaul ORC

October 4, 2017 at 10:47 PM 15 comments

For those of you who are new to my blog for the One Room Challenge, welcome and thanks for stopping by.  This is my fifth time participating and I am strangely addicted to this pony show.

Here are my past challenges –

Poolhouse Nip and Tuck  


Gone Country Bedroom


Poodle Paradise Closet


Make That a Double” Patio

This time, I’m determined to finish up my master bedroom.  In the interest of full disclosure, I’ve already begun working on the room but I want it finished.  I’m a classic 90%.  Actually, in just writing that sentence, I realized that I forgot to put laundry detergent in with my latest clothes cycle.  I stain treated the million kids stains, threw it all in the washer, turned the dang thing on and walked away without any detergent.  See? 90 percenter.  Let’s get this bedroom to 100%, shall we?

A little back story, I bought my parents house, as in the one I grew up in.  The history is an amazing gift to have and treasure EXCEPT when it comes to the master bedroom.  Moving into your parent’s room – it’s just plain awkward.  So, the bedroom needed a complete overhaul but without painting or moving walls.

Here is the bedroom before we moved in.



That painting is awesome and the lamps are cool and the mirror is gorgeous.  But mark my words, absolutely nothing in here stays.  And we all get why.

Come back next week for the plan.

    Yeah!! Can’t wait to see how it turns out – this room has so much charm and potential. And of course you will rock it, girl. Wish I was right there with you but unexpected expenses this fall made me pull back. Damn you, adulthood!

      Thank you so much! I totally feel you on the expenses. If I didn’t have a lot of it done in advance, I wouldn’t have gone through with this just cause of money. Adulting can be the worst!

    “We all get why.” Ha!

    Hey Kate! I’m also doing a master bedroom for ORC, so I thought I’d check out some other bedroom projects. Kudos to you for taking on such a project! How cool that you can have that family history and continuity, and at least the wall treatments are gorgeous already. Looking forward to seeing the room in the future!
