ORC: Cozy Neutral Bedroom Reveal!

You guys. It’s the final week of my first ever One Room Challenge. Hard to believe that I started this little project six weeks ago. Almost harder to believe that I managed to put up a blog post for 6 consecutive weeks (plus one bonus post, it may be a record!)

If you missed it, Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5

I am so excited to share this with you, I could pee my pants! It turned out even dreamier than I was hoping. But first…

Huge thanks to Linda at Calling it Home, for hosting such an awesome event and letting Joe Schmos like me get in on the action. Between the weekly deadlines, the encouragement from other participants, and the inspiration from all of the other transformations going on, this was just the kick in the ass that I needed to make some serious changes to our overly dark and slightly drab master bedroom.

I started here with this mood board, and a sort of to-do list. Meaning, some to-dos, and some possibly/maybe to-dos.

ORC: Cozy Neutral Bedroom Week 5

I don’t know about you guys, but I think winter has officially arrived in Wyoming. It’s always kind of sad when the time changes and we say goodbye to daylight after work for approximately the next 4 or so months. It also started raining this afternoon, and the rain is supposed to turn to snow overnight. So yeah. I think our long beautiful fall days (which we were spoiled with this year) are over.

On the bright side, it’s getting to be perfect weather for cuddling up! And our bedroom is looking super cozy these days, since we’re now 5 weeks in to our One Room Challenge bedroom makeover. Spoiler alert: Reagan likes it too.

Ok folks, it’s week 4 of the One Room Challenge, and we are hanging in there! If you’re not up to speed, I’ve got 6 weeks to completely re-do one room (I chose our “master” bedroom), and am joining a bunch of other crazy and talented bloggers over at Calling it Home by sharing my progress each week.  You can catch up on my progress with week 1 here, week 2 here, and week 3 here.

So, you know I am all about neutrals with this project. I’ve been going for this white/gray/cream palette, but I’m also obsessing over

Simple DIY Wooden Headboard

If you’ve been following along, you know I made a last-minute decision to participate in Linda at Calling it Home’s One Room Challenge this fall, and give our bedroom a little makeover. I’ve added a few to-dos to my list along the way, and I thought the DIY headboard that we completed this week was worth sharing on its own!

Hey all, and welcome to the halfway point of this little challenge I’ve gotten myself into. If you’re just jumping in, you can catch up on where I started with week 1 and week 2. I think it’s safe to say this might have been the most productive week of my 6 total in the ORC. And most definitely the most expensive (oops). Some serious progress is being made over here, so let’s get to it!

Paint!

I am SO relieved to say that I think we made the exact right decision on the perfect white paint for this cozy neutral bedroom in the works.
