Hello Friends! I can’t believe it’s week 5 of the One Room Challenge. Just 1 week left to go. It’s been a bit hectic around here. I took the weekend off to take a hike in Boulder, CO with one of my best friends for a milestone birthday. It was a blast but definitely back to reality and finishing up.
If you are new to my blog, I’ve been working on a tween room update for my daughter and you can catch up on all the weekly updates here. This week’s progress is completing an update to her old dresser and putting finishing touches to the room.
One Room Challenge || IKEA HACK
I decided to update her current furniture since that was the more budget friendly option. In addition, I’m adding a night stand with similar look. The dresser was a Malm 6-drawer dresser in a black brown and the night stand is the 3-drawer from the Kullen collection in the same color.
I teamed up with a company called O’verlays to freshen up the look. They have been awesome to work with and can’t wait to show you the finished product. As mentioned, both pieces came in a black brown but I’m updating them to white. I’ve sanded, primed and applied a first coat. I’ll be finishing up the second coat and installing the kits over the next several days.
The weather has been a bit crazy here in North Texas so I set up my spray tent in the garage and have been at work. Below are some progress pics.
I’ll be doing a DIY post in the near future. It’s been a learning process but no regrets.
One Room Challenge || Accessories and Finishing Touches
The last few items arrived in the mail over the last week, it’s been exciting to get all the packages. I also purchased a few more accessories and artwork.
I’ll be putting everything together in the next few days. I’m hoping to have the room finished up by the end of the week in time for pictures. I’ll be going on a business trip for a good part of next week and would like to get it done before I head out.
This process has been a great experience and I love reading and scrolling through Instagram to see the great progress on others, you can see the amazing updates here.
I hope you stop by next week to see the final reveal. Thanks for following along. Bye for now.
