Welcome to Week 2 of the One Room Challenge. Today I’ll be sharing an overview of the different projects and parts of the master bedroom that I plan to revamp.
Check out Week 1 for an introduction to the challenge and to find out more about the overall goal for the space.
The One Room Challenge
If this is your first time hearing about the one-room challenge, let me just back up for a bit and explain what exactly the challenge is and what it entails.
The One Room Challenge is a six-week series that was started by Linda Weinstein of Calling it Home.
The idea behind the one-room challenge is simple. The challenge gives participants the opportunity to work on and finish one room over the six-week period.
The challenge is a biannual event that I look forward to each time it comes around. It’s also a great opportunity to connect with others in the online space, share ideas and encourage each other. I look forward each week to reading project updates from fellow participants. You can do the same by visiting the ORC blog.
This is my third year participating in the One Room Challenge as a guest participant.
In 2019, I worked on updating my tween room makeover where I redid my daughter’s bedroom.
Last year, I tackled our dining room and shared the entire process from start to finish.
I can’t believe a whole year has passed since that dining room transformation. I am excited to take part in the challenge again, this time redesigning our master bedroom.
one room challenge Week 2: DIY To-Do List
The focus this week will be on mapping out each part of the project and starting to put together the different DIY projects that I’ll need to complete for the entire master bedroom makeover. I’ll also slowly start working on putting up the boards for the accent wall this week.
The Accent Wall
As I mentioned last week, the main focal point in the room will be the accent wall. I am torn between two patterns. I’ll start putting up the boards this week and I’m sure will continue to share with you as I proceed.
Dresser & Nightstands
This week, I am also going to be updating these Ikea Tarva dressers. I am still waiting for the items to come back in stock, but I have these two options as a backup just in case.
While I don’t love hopping on all the latest trends, one trend that I would like to try is cane webbing.
Cane webbing is everywhere these days and I absolutely love the way it looks. I’ve also been looking into incorporating cane webbing into the design of the dressers and nightstands. This would require DIY!
My goal is to attempt something similar to the cane dresser that Kourtni created on her blog. I’ll share my progress in the following weeks.
I also plan on building 2 beams for the recessed ceiling. These beams will be similar to the ones that I built for my dining room last year but smaller.
table for the seating area
Another smaller project that I’m working on is the table for our seating area. It’ll look similar to this concept, but with smaller canes and in a natural stain.
I haven’t decided yet what to do for our window treatments- possibly do roman shades, but still undecided.
Finally, I’ll also be working on the door to our ensuite bathroom. When I worked on this plan (a year ago), I really wanted barn doors.
I’m still not sure how this will work in terms of space.
Part of the fun of the one-room challenge is catching up with what the other guest participants are working on and following their progress. Don’t forget to check out the other wonderful participants.
