My first crack at One Room Challenge (ORC) last year was about jumping into it with my eyes closed, giving myself not only ambitious schedule to completely transform unusable room into inspiring and relaxing studio/guest bedroom but to also do it under a strict budget. I was definitely thrilled with results, in fact, I still am a year later amazed by this room. I love to see kiddos spend time here and get creative even if I don't have too much time to paint or do pretty much anything else.
I am sure that was enough rambling for one post, so what is the actual plan? I did not waver from my inspiration by Christine Dovey (who incidentally herself did not complete her own master bedroom in the new house)
Even with all of this time from initial challenge until now, I have not secured everything I wanted and envisioned and there is still a lot work left (paneling, painting one of the walls black, etc) not to mention bringing it all together.
Even though, I did not complete this room in the first round, there are, however, elements that I accomplished - /4/ finding 4 linen curtains for $10 each (gotta love Ikea's "as is" section), /3/ shopping in my own home /2/ updating some of the items I already purchased /1/re-purpose, update and visit garage sales.
These are bad photos - but they show thinking and debating the 'valance' situation.
There is still a lot to figure out and pull it all together and I can't wait to get onto this journey again.
