One Room Challenge | Week 6: The Master Bedroom Reveal

I hope everyone had a fun and productive One Room Challenge this round! I started out with no direction, made a mood board, and went almost the complete opposite way. It was a big learning experience for me and again I found myself being thankful for such an encouraging community. 6 weeks of crazy running around and making long drives to get products, but sitting in my bed writing this post makes it all worth it. Without further ado, head straight to the good stuff.

One Room Challenge | Week 5: Final Paint Color

Week 5 of the One Room Challenge was a good one. I took a break from social media and man was it refreshing. Last week I was stumped on the paint color for our master walls since I thought I was going to go dark until I actually had dark walls and hated them. Last Thursday the rug finally came in and eased my mind a little. It was so much lighter in person than on AllModern and I could hold it up to all my new swatches to see how they would compliment each other. I painted few dozen mid tone grays, a few lighter grays and didn't love any of them. I sat down to think hard about what color would make the rug and the headboard the stars of the show. It hit me like a ton of bricks - the Spring Makeover Kid's Playroom

One Room Challenge | Week 4: Paint Fail Lessons

As the title implies, I painted our room and didn't love the color. So you could stop reading now and still get the gist of my progress this week. But if you've made it this far, I actually learned some pretty valuable personal and design lessons from my paint saga.

One Room Challenge | Week 3: Paint Swatches

I could look at paint colors for an infinite amount of time. Each one is so unique and has so many different colors within it. This week I went to Home Depot and started my search for the perfect shade for our master. I can make an argument for each one of the paint swatches and why each one is the best color for this space.  Nonetheless, five colors entered and only one can survive. Welcome to Week 3 of the One Room Challenge.

One Room Challenge | Week 2: The Mood Board

The One Room Challenge Week 2 was a bit crazy in the Jones household. About 3 weeks ago our sink and shower stopped working, so we decided to pull the trigger on replacing all the galvanized plumbing with PVC. It was past time to do it we really were just waiting until we had the money anyways. We scheduled it and he quoted us with a day and a half to complete the job. No big deal, we’d just stay with my parents. Long story short he got in there and found more wrong than he thought and the job took from Friday morning until Monday evening... so I lost all weekend to do anything in our master. But luckily a mood board can be done on my laptop, remotely, and with mojitos in hand.

One Room Challenge | Week 1: The Master Befores & Plans

September, October, and November are arguably busier than April, May, and June for us. September I do the $100 Room Challenge (check out the full bathroom reveal if you haven't yet) and  head straight in to the October/November One Room Challenge, plus all the major holidays and family get togethers. I thought I had resigned to not doing the ORC this fall, but here I am at 10 o'clock on Wednesday night getting on the band wagon again. It really gives me the motivation and focus to complete an entire space instead of doing a little here and a little there.

If you're not familiar with the One Room Challenge, bloggers (and Instagramers this year!) have 6 weeks and an unlimited budget to transform an entire space. It spans two months, which means I'm usually working with a $400 budget ($200 a month).  For the Spring challenge I did our guest room that also functions as my closet and last fall our home office had a massive face lift. This round I'm finally going to give some attention to our master bedroom.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 4: The Full Bathroom Reveal

Every reveal day is like Christmas. I get to compare where a space started out to where it is today. Today I get to share our bathroom renovation we complete for just (90¢ over) $100 in 4 short weeks. One of those weeks I spent out of town so it really was only 3 weeks!
