One Room Challenge - Week 2

Week 2 is already here for the One Room Challenge I'm working on. See here for week one.

So what have I accomplished this week?

While I am so dying to show you what we've done this past weekend to our master bedroom, I'm going to try and keep a little suspense going. I will tell you this was involved....

A saw was used and the dehydrated urine color yellow paint color was banished. Also, very happily the brown drapes were removed as well. Nothing wrong with brown drapes, but tip: don't ever decorate with brown and yellow, unless you are drawn to the poop & pee color combo. Sorry for the visual there but it's a really really bad color combo. Anyways....

Even though my bedroom is a complete pit right now and it's like a dangerous maze trying to get around things, I can't not help get giddy already with how the room is looking. Loving it!!

What am I working on this week... finishing painting and sourcing ceiling lights, and bedding/pillows.

Can you believe we don't have a ceiling light right now? So, we will have to have to hire an electrician to come and climb in our attic space to install wiring.
Here are some of the lights that I am pondering...





I'm pretty sure I know which one I'm getting but haven't purchased it yet. What one is your favorite?

In my last plan I showed you this one.


Unfortunately, it's not available right now, and won't be until late April I think. Bummer.

I will be getting my headboard delivered tomorrow and I am super excited to finally have this installed. A room just isn't finished without one.

I think I will love this since it's so casual and the white crispness of the white twill will be just the right touch in this room.

Oh, and a little change in plans. I wasn't planning on buying any new furniture for this room other than the headboard but as I was looking at my mess of disorganization near my desk area I knew I needed more storage over there. The new plan will be that  I am moving my nightstand over to the desk area and adding 2 of these beauties from Serena and Lily, as our new nightstands. I love them so much and have been having my eyes on them for awhile now. I think they are going to look SO good. Crossing fingers.

Speaking of Serena and Lily, I got some new pillows for my living room. What do you think?

Well, that's a wrap on what's happening here this week. I got to get back to it.

Be sure to see what Linda and the other 19 bloggers are up to from yesterday's check in, and what the other linking up bloggers are up to today. There has been some major progress going on with other bloggers, and I'm feeling a bit lazy with just the little I have got accomplished.

Thanks for checking in with me, hope to have more to share next week.


  1. SO FUN!! I can't wait to see how it all turns out. Love that headboard too. It's one of my fav's! Nice job tackling the painting of a big room! I dread painting.

  2. Can't wait to see that new wall color in action!! I too have suffered from that dreaded "yellow & brown" color combo!! Loving the new light choices too!!

  3. Love the lighting options and headboard, but you stopped me dead in my tracks with those nightstands! Absolutely LOVE!

  4. Consider me officially jealous because I've been eyeing that Serena & Lily cart for ages! Bummer about the World Market light - I love it - but you've got lots of other great options too. Good luck finishing up your painting!
