My Second “One Room Challenge” Starts Today
I absolutely loved participating in the last One Room Challenge (here’s my big guest bedroom reveal), so when I saw another one was about to start, I immediately jumped on it. Why? Because it’s so stressful, it’s fun. 😉 And, two, because my poor youngest son’s room needs some major loving.
Here are some items that are catching my attention. Cost wise they’re not in my budget, but I need inspiration and this works!
So, I started this room almost two years ago when Channing was still in a crib. The wall detail was done and painted white. Then, I painted this room a dark taupe and it had a cowhide rug that I had to take out because the smell was too much. Fast forward to his 2nd birthday, and we got a cheap headboard (which is now broken), a new rug (the one you see in these images that I will probably be keeping) & I painted the walls Sherwin Williams First Star. Now, everything else is a hodge-podge and I’m picking up where I left off.
Here’s the current state of his room (yes, I did strip the beds to clean his sheets… out with the old!!)
OK, my plan for this room includes something like this.
- New everything!!! (Don’t tell my husband that, please!!!!)
- Make it him. He’s a dare-devil, strong-willed, vibrant fellow and his room needs to make a statement. I want to include fun elements but keep it simple so that he can grow into it.
- I want a place for him to sit and hang out. He loves to read and we need to be comfortable doing it!
- He needs a new color scheme. I think I’ll continue my grey hues from the around the house into this space, but I want to add pops of boyish metal colors and maybe lighten it up some with yellow or gold.
So, on my to purchase or find or make list is:
1. New headboard
3. A desk
5. A bench
