Hello y’all! I’m so excited to bring you this post today! I’ve had this plan in the works for a while now. I’m a planner, you know. I’m taking part as a guest participant in the One Room Challenge this spring. Like, starting today. Yay! I’m so excited and kind of nervous.
If you haven’t heard of the One Room Challenge, it’s the brain child of Linda from Calling It Home and it’s a 6 week room makeover challenge.The six weeks starts now and each week we post real time updates and then after 6 weeks, we’ll hopefully be left with an amazingly beautiful and completed room. I’ve been following along with this series for years so it’s so cool to actually be taking part in it. I hope you’ll stop back by every week to see how it’s going!
Ok, so let me give you the breakdown for the topics for each week:
In the room there’s a small dresser I have used for a few photo ops, there’s a play kitchen that my sweet hubs made about 5 years ago, and an Ikea book shelf for toy storage although, as you can see, most storage of toys happens on the floor.
We took the closet doors down and made it into an extra little nook.
Yep, it’s pretty sad.

colorful space using MY favorite colors: lots of greens, terra cotta, a
little pink, then I felt bad and realized I can still make a room fit in
with the rest of our house, have my signature on it, and still make
it look like their space too. So this pretty purpley, mauve room was
patch holes and paint ceiling and walls (and closet)
build platforms for bookcases and bed
prime and paint built ins
wallpaper built in wall around window
build IKEA bookcases- This might take an entire week on its own. Just saying.
trim built ins
make roman shades
paint art table
diy lazy susan for art supplies
paint bar stools
stain toy crates and desk top
create desk and desk wall
sew day bed pillows
diy large wall art
diy pendant light
install ceiling fan
organize toy storage/ donate all the toys ; )
stage the shelves with toys, books and plants
make the room look amazing with thrifted finds, etsy goodness and DIY’s galore
wait to get in there and get started and I can’t wait to show you all of
it. Even if a purple playroom isn’t your thing, I’ll be doing lots of
DIY’s and creating tutorials that might be. Stick around, come back,
follow along as I get the job done!
