Well, it’s been a while since I posted but I figured what better way to return to my blog than by participating in this year’s Fall edition of the One Room Challenge, hosted by Linda of Calling It Home. I have been meaning to update our master bedroom for many months, so now’s the time to get my butt in gear and get this thing DONE. I missed week 1 of the ORC so bear with me as I catch up.
Our master bedroom is in the darkest part of our home. The sun seems to miss the room at most times of the day, plus there are a couple of trees right outside the window that block out any of the light. Keeping this in mind everything needs to be light and airy. So, white, off-white, and nothing too bulky.
This is our current bedroom situation:
Apart from those laundry totes, everything in here is a mishmash of items from our old house. I still like the bedding and artwork but it’s time for a refresh. And I’m ready to move on from the accent wall, in spite of my son’s objections.
Here’s the plan:
- Paint everything white (Chantilly Lace, Benjamin Moore)
- Update bedding, curtains and pillows
- New artwork
- DIY furniture – dresser and simple bench
- *Maybe* change out the pendant light, and door hardware
I will be keeping the bed frame, bedside tables and sconces. I have tried some really gorgeous modern sconces in the past but was disheartened when the light they cast made the room intense and dreary. These ones are from Ikea and while they may not be the most stylish lights, they cast a warm, gorgeous light in the room.
Most of my day today will be painting the bedroom, but some of it will be figuring out how to use Photoshop to create a mood board to share here. If you have any tips, please feel free to share, because me and photoshop are not on friendly terms. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
