Welcome to week two of the One Room Challenge. This week has been a bit slow in the progress stage of our master bedroom. We did have Spring break, Easter and a fun trip to Philadelphia so we'll blame the 'not much progress' on that. I hope you had a good Easter too. I do want to share more of my plans with you and some of the items I will be working on.
The bench is something we've owned for awhile but it's going to now get a different look with lime waxing the legs and a cushion top. I think it will look good at the end of our bed. The big help here is I'm 'shopping' my house or playing the 'let's rearrange the furniture game.' The chair is something I got at a barn sale for $5 and felt like I should rescue it. However, this pretty thing has been sitting in the basement for awhile now so hopefully, I'll have time to recover it and paint the legs and arms.
I could use this mirror in here, we've had it too for awhile now. The gold frame needs to be glued but was a great thrift store find.
The bed will get a headboard and I found this great graphic to help me decide on the shape. I'm thinking we'll do the Belgrave style or the Grosvenor.
I keep thinking about this headboard with the nail head trim. Amazing right?
Now for some pillow talk. Pillows with some color will be important for the room to get a snazzy pop of color. I'm thinking a lumbar pillow might be really great. I'm still working on the fabrics so I'm sure I will show you next week.
Here's my To do list:
-Lengthen the curtains
-Make Roman shades
-Paint lamps (already own) coral
-New (woven) baskets for side tables
-Distress dresser and put on new hardware
-DIY Headboard with nailhead trim
-Distress bench (already own) and upholster
-DIY shadow boxes
-Print black and white pictures of our family and places we love
-Sew pillow covers
