Kid's Bedroom Makeover - ORC Week 4!

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

You guys, some great progress happened this past week and I'm having so much fun adding more and more accessories to the space.  I can finally see it all coming together and it's awesome!

If you're stopping by for the first time, thanks for visiting!  Also, a big thank you to Linda from Calling It Home for organizing the One Room Challenge.  It's honestly been a blast!

This bedroom makeover has been sponsored by HomeSense and I'm so thankful for that!  We are finding the best products!

As a reminder, this is what we started with:

Okay, so in the last week, I painted the headboard green (Krylon's Emerald Green), added the painted detail to the wall behind the desk (Captains' Quarters from Canadian Tire's Premier Paint line), added castors to the wooden box that I picked up from HomeSense (which will be part of J's reading corner) and created a spot for J to hang his hats/sweaters.

I also decided on the fabric for the window treatment.  Since the bed is tucked beside the window on one side, I've decided to go with a full width single short panel that will be pushed to one side.  I think I'll be ordering this fabric from Tonic Living (pictured in the photo below) this week.

(the bedskirt will hide the toy bins perfectly!)

How fun is that pillow cover from HomeSense?!  I also put the art prints in their frames, once I'm done making some shelves (fingers crossed my idea works) the gallery wall will go up!  You may have noticed that I swapped out the rug from the previous post, this one is cozier and works better in the space.

Here's our oh-so-lovely to do list:

  • paint headboard
  • purge room (so.much.clutter and so unnecessary!)
  • make bedskirt
  • paint vintage dresser
  • find desk
  • frame DIY
  • hang gallery wall
  • window treatment
  • hang hooks for clothing
  • find some type of book organization
  • place for J to hang his art
  • make frame for world print
  • paint wall behind desk
  • new lighting

  • There really isn't all that much left to do!  I think accessorizing and finalizing everything will take some time, but we're getting there folks!
