It's that time again. Linda from Calling It Home has organized another round of talented bloggers transforming a room of their choice for the One Room Challenge. I'm going to try to keep up with them and link up a room that I've been saving for this. A six week turn around may be tough, but I'm going to try to keep up. Want to see which room I picked?
In all fairness, this is what the room looked like when we moved in. And yes that's a drop ceiling with a missing ceiling tile. Why? No clue. And this is what it looks like now.
I know, right? Not much improved with the exception of a proper ceiling. It's been rewired, which is why the baseboards are off and it's had some plaster repair. I also recently painted the closet which was a scary mess.
It's amazing what a coat of white paint (and a sponge) can do to make a space look fresh again.
So here's the plan.

-Crown molding, new baseboards and shoe molding
-Window benches under both windows/ upholstery
-Light fixture/ table lamps
-Wallpaper (slight snafu with that which I'll talk about later)
-Upholster the headboard (and find bed frame and mattresses and bedding)
-Furniture i.e, nightstands and maybe a chair?
-Art and whatever else I'm forgetting at the moment.
How many weeks is this? I've got to go. I'm already about 5 months behind. Make sure you check out what all of the One Room Challenge bloggers are doing. I'm sure they will not disappoint.
