It’s finally here! I cannot WAIT to show you the room- I hope you love it!
As a refresher, we chose to participate in the One Room Challenge- a 6 week room makeover challenge hosted by Linda at Calling it Home! For the past 5 weeks, 20 design bloggers and over a hundred participants have posted updates on their makeovers, and today is the big reveal day!
I’m excited- are you?
If this is your first time here, be sure to check out our updates along the way! We chose to makeover our guest bedroom, and have had lots of ups and downs. The ups caused us to go a tad over budget, but in the end our room is finished, so mission accomplished : ) Week 1 we talked plans, week 2 we talked mixing paint colors to get the perfect shade, week 3 we talked DIY headboard- on a wall!, week 4 we talked DIY nightstands, and week 5 we gave a huge (and sparkly) excuse as to why we had limited updates!
And here we are at week 6. Without boring you completely with too many words, I’ll let the pictures talk for themselves!
We kept the artwork simple- white frames. drop cloth backgrounds, and black and white pictures! I chose photos from our surprise weekend away (Check out week 5!) when Matt proposed. It may have made us go over budget on the room because we were not able to DIY as much as we had planned due to time, but I could not be happier! Like babbling random sentences and smiling all the time happy : )
The light fixture was a DIY that was super affordable. Like between $30-$40 affordable! More on that later : )
Originally we planned on building a bench, but after a quick trip to Homegoods, we picked up this amazing option instead!
Here’s the castle where Matt proposed : ) I love that this room will always remind me of this!
Our $5 garage sale chair got a quick makeover with white chalk paint and a drop cloth covered seat!
One more before and after just for fun…
And that’s a wrap! We’ve had so much fun participating in this ORC, and thanks to Linda at Calling it Home, our guests are now spoiled between our guest bathroom and this room! I’m so happy with how it all came together!
As a little recap, our original budget was $300 in out of pocket expenses. After purchasing a few items we planned on DIYing, we went a bit over, but I think it was 100% worth it : )
- Paint $0 (mixed old paints together to make a custom color)
- Frames/Art $98
- Chair $5
- Bench $130
- Accessories $13
- Side Table $15
- Curtains & Bedding $0 (already owned)
- Nightstands $22
- Bedskirt $0 (DIY post coming soon!)
- Wood Headboard Wall $46
- Lamps $0 (stole from another 1/2 finished room)
- Light Fixture $39
Total $379! Not to shabby for an entire room : ) We got creative while shopping around the house, and tried to spend our precious dollars on statement making pieces. What do you think?
I hope you’ve enjoyed following along, and my brain is already spinning on which room to choose for the next ORC! That and planning a wedding- Pinterest has become my new best friend! Be sure to check out all of the amazing rooms being shared- I hope you’re inspired to take on a room makeover of your own 🙂
