Week 1: Fall 2018 One Room Challenge

Do you remember when I redecorated our Master Bedroom last spring? Well I’m partipating again in another One Room Challenge and I’ve decided to start it on the very first day that our bathroom remodel is completed. Whew, I may be crazy.

I’m planning to redo our guest bedroom, to try to compete with our new guest bathroom. There are two key differences for this room, I’m working on a very strict budget and it’s DIY.  I have a few ideas that I’ve been bouncing around my head, so let’s see what I can come up with. The guest bedroom at Ewok (the nickname given by Ewok’s most frequent guest) is also my sewing/craft room. So it has to serve both purposes. Here is the space from about a year ago.

The above actually looks way more cluttered now, because I added a tv and shelves. I am now thinking that I like this wall better without the shelves. Hmmm. A fabric cutting area is a must and this really is a great place to do it. I think most of the above will be staying2017-02-02 14.25.02-2

This area definitely needs to be decluttered. I made the curtains out of this awesome coverlet that I bought in India. But, they just do not look great in this space. It is a cool fabric though and I hope to find something to do with it. 2017-02-02 14.25.42-2

This area above is actually super cute as is. But I am thinking of a bit of wallpaper above. The paintings I made of our beloved pets Moz and punch. Our current love bug is below, Winnie.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention this is also Winnie’s bed. She has pretty much claimed all beds, chairs and sofas in this house.

The major area that needs to be addressed is the flooring. It’s currently a very stained and sad beige carpet. I want to ditch the carpet and the replacement is still to be decided. We also use this area to watch tv, so I need to find a way to make it more comfortable.

Stay tuned to my blog for the next 6 weeks as I make over this space. And be sure to check out all of the featured designers and fellow guest participants in the One Room Challenge here.
