ORC Week 5 - Boy's Bedroom Makeover

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

So should I start panicking about the fact that there is just one week left until the BIG reveal and I pretty much made ZERO progress on J's room this week?!  Yup, you read that right!  I didn't tackle 99% of my to-do list, which means next week is going to be nutso, but you know what, I'm ready for it and kind of excited!

I can't wait to put all of the final pieces together and to share the finished space with you!  I can tell you that there will definitely be a lot of spray painting happening over the next week! lol!

The one thing that I did tackle since week 4 was sewing the bedskirt.  This Modern Toile fabric from Tonic Living was one of the first selections that I chose for the room.  J loved it and it has a super fun vibe to it, so it was a winner from the get go!

That being said, I was pretty nervous about using it and did breathe a nice sigh of relief once it was in place!  I used this fantastic tutorial for measuring out the pleats and I even loved her idea to use upholstery pins to keep it in place!

With that, I leave with pictures of the bedskirt and look forward to bringing a post full of awesome reveal pics next week!

As always, be sure to check out the other guest participants posts right here and a huge thank you to Linda for coordinating this wonderful event!
