One Room Challenge - Week 1!

THE TIME IS HERE! The Fall 2021 #oneroomchallenge with @betterhomesandgardens is underway and somehow I have convinced the hubs that we "need" to remodel our bedroom and that it will still be pink...with more pink... He must have blacked out whenever this discussion took place because I am SHOCKED that he is going along with this. He recently did a "no more pink" ban on the house, yet here we are, so I'm just taking this little miracles as they come!

So HERE IT IS. The glorious mood board for out Pattern Party Bedroom. Yes, it's gonna be biizzzaaayyyy, but I'm also here. for. it.

The Before

Our bedroom has always been an after thought. We made small changes here and there to make it more "insta-worthy", but the reality is, I have never loved it. We have had to make do using a lot of our old pieces and I was really missing out on having a show stopping backdrop with how the current layout was. The bedroom is not HORRENDOUS, but it just isn't something that excites and inspires us.

The Details

We will be conquering everything DIY for this project. Most of these will be pretty simple with the help of my handy dandy dad, but it's a nice little list, so we have some WORK TO DO.

The list of changes that we will be tackling are:

  1. Move the bed to the right wall and create arched bookshelves on either side of the bed to make the bed appear to be on a sunken wall. The bookshelf frame will be made to look like it is actually part of the wall and will be textured- we are just too lazy to build actual walls instead of bookcases.. but I digress..

  2. Create a DIY stencil using a Cricut to paint an Anthropologie wallpaper dupe behind the bed. (This could be a disaster)

  3. Add wall sconces above the bed.

  4. Build a half circle tufted velvet head board

  5. Add modern picture frame paneling to the walls AND ceiling.

  6. Color block the walls and ceiling.

  7. Style the shit out of the place with fun new furniture and decor!

I will be keeping you updated on the progress through my instagram and blog, so make sure to follow along to see how these DIY's actually come together, and stay tuned for the final reveal towards the end of November! Also don't forget to check out to see all of the exciting projects taking place this challenge!
