One Room Challenge | Week 5: Budget Master Bedroom Makeover

Welcome back!

It's week 5 of the One Room Challenge where I have insanely jumped into the madness and am madly trying to finish the space.

What is the One Room Challenge? It is where 20 featured designers are making over a space in 6 weeks. All of the featured designers will create amazing spaces, armed with sponsors and the ability to renovate and make drastic changes to their homes. I jumped on the guest participant bandwagon and feel like melting into a puddle of tears right now.

If you are new here, my hubby and I live in a rental home where I  have been slowly adding our touch to our home using creativity and ingenuity! You can visit my last 2 One Room Challenge makeovers where I re-designed our kitchen with renter friendly updates and I revamped our son's old bedroom into my sewing room!

It's the home stretch and my biggest regret is NOT HAVING A PROPER PLAN BEFORE I BEGAN!

It has been the thorn in my side, it has caused me so much agony and sleepless nights. Not sure why I do this to myself.

But the end is in sight, my only dread it to photograph the space which I find so stressful.

What I managed to accomplish this week:

  • Put the room back together
  • Hung curtains
  • Gave the Liberace gold mirror an aged treatment (check out my Instastories for that!)
  • Spray painted the wall sconces. 
  • Hung up wall sconces
  • Added new hardware from Lee Valley  on the Ikea dressers.
  • Purchased new duvet.
  • Began sewing the slipcover for the armchair.
  • Assembled artwork, hung a few pieces.
  • Cut out fabric for a long lumbar pillow. 

What is left to do:

  • Finish hanging art work
  • Sew lumbar pillow
  • Finish slipcover
  • Photograph space
I'm loving the whole modern Parisian vibe the room is taking on! Can't wait to show you next week!

  1. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed
    to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions
    or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

    1. Oh, you have to figure out which platform you would like to use, like Blogger/Wordpress/Squarespace to name a few. There are many free templates and tons of YouTube and blog posts on how to set up and how to blog. I bought my template from Georgia Lou studios, the llnk is on the bottom of my website! I think it cost me $20. There is tons of free info on the web! Good luck!
