Squeal! It’s here! TIME’S UP! This feels like my very own episode of Trading Spaces.
Except I did my own room…I didn’t have a $1000 budget, and there is no Ty…or Paige….oh, and it’s not 2002.
But wow, to get a room done in six weeks is no joke and I can’t wait to share my “reveal” with you!
If you are just joining me, WELCOME! I have been a busy bee giving my master bedroom a sweet kick in the pants. It was a snooze before and I had given ZERO thought to the space in the five years we have been in our home. So glad this One Room Challenge was just the motivation I needed to start…and to actually (almost) finish!
The best part of this makeover is that it was verah-verah-verah inexpensive. I do not believe that a limited budget should hold you back from having your home make you happy. This makeover is a tale of repurposing items I already had, finding a few yard sale treasures, a little elbow grease and a vision.
Sadly, my fairy godmother did not show up this week and bippity-boppity-boo her way around the room to magically complete some big projects. Therefore I did not complete my lofty goal list. But that’s OK, because in my world, I NEVER call a space done. It just isn’t in my DNA. I love to constantly tweak and when the inspiration hits I know I will get ‘er done.
OK, so with that (man I am feeling wordy today), I am thrilled to share the space. Can I get a low-five for getting so much knocked off the list in just six short weeks? And a up-high-five for doing it with lots of TLC, DIY, blood sweat and tears…. and very little actual moola?
ONE ROOM CHALLENGE REVEAL
Let’s take a look shall we?
This week the biggie was getting the bedding squared away. For the duvet, I just added a black ribbon trim. I love the way the black border gives the duvet some ooomph.
The leopard pillows were constructed from a fitted sheet I found at the Ballard Design outlet awhile back. (Thumbs up for using something I had on hand. Thumbs down for my current relationship with the sewing machine.)
OK, now let’s just enjoy the view shall we? I will be back later to share some more of the DIY details and cost break out for inquiring minds!
OK, moving to the other side of the room.
I will be back tomorrow with the source list and cost break-out.
And because we all LOVE a good before and after, here we go just for fun!
Thanks again to Linda over at Calling it Home for hosting this fun challenge! This was my first One Room Challenge and I really enjoyed having a timeline to get myself focused. Ah, who am I kidding, I have about 34 new things I have been working on around here and I can’t wait to share them all with you!
This picture makes me laugh because what you don’t see is the baby crawling making a mad getaway with one shoe in his hand.
