One Room Challenge Week 3: Master Bedroom Progress

One Room Challenge Posts: Week 1 / Week 2 / Week 3 (here!) / Week 4 / Week 5 / Reveal / Bonus: Desk We’re basically half way through the One Room Challenge, and frustratingly, I still don’t have much to show. Everything on order is taking ages to arrive. What I did do, though, is clear out the room properly and clean it top to bottom.

Some of my Favorite ORC Rooms

There was so much good stuff that came out of this round of the One Room Challenge, and I’m going to share a few of my faves today. I’ll stick with my top three of the twenty featured designers. I am head over heels for Waiting On Martha’s new team office – I love industrial spaces anyway, and this one is so wonderfully calm, warm and refined – such a lovely juxtaposition… Making It Lovely’s bedroom/den space is just dreamy. And again with the juxtaposition – classic Victorian features with a good dose… View Post

One Room Challenge Week 3: DIY Upholstered Beds with Nail Head Trim

We’re in week three of the One Room Challenge, and I have finally finished off the kids’ beds that I started upholstering months ago. See my progress so far here: Week 1 // Week 2 This is not my first rodeo with upholstering beds – I hacked an Ikea one here too.
