Thank you so much for stopping by to check in on the One Room Challenge Reveal
of my friend's master bedroom. If you're just now catching up she's the sweetest,
hard working, single mom, who went through a divorce last year - and was most
deserving of a fabulous master bedroom for herself.
I'm most excited to share that a big budget wasn't in the cards and her stylish new
room is brought to you by several Craigslist scores, Walmart, Ikea and DIYs!
But first, a huge thank you to Linda @ Calling it Home for her work putting
the ORC together, and endless support and encouragement!
I mentioned before that she was a neutral loving girl, who didn't want to commit to
color, but her favorite rooms she kept showing me had pops of color, she went out of
her comfort zone big time and agreed to this 'daring' combination. :) We went with a
neutral background that she could easily change up.
First up was rearranging the furniture, placing the bed under the window and white
paint from top to bottom immediately opened the room up. Craigslist score #1,
the over sized lantern is a great scale for the high ceilings. Craigslist score #2,
the Wisteria x- benches we had reupholstered in a linen blend leopard.
The neutral upholstered headboard from Walmart is impressive quality for the bargain
price. We chose a simple silhouette against the busy combination of windows and panes.
The bed covering the windows (although not ideal, but our best option)
wasn't a concern in this sun drenched space with a southern exposure.
Craigslist score #3 - We were beside ourselves when these vintage Drexel campaign
chests showed up for a steal! They're large and offer amazing storage and surface
space for a lamp and pretty styling (a bonus).
She found the gorgeous pair of lamps at Homegoods, when we were trying them
out I thought it would be fun to place the pillow fabric on the diagonal to repeat that
element, but it meant we needed more fabric and a little miracle worker to help us
out last minute ~ we are so fortunate to have the BEST seamstress,
thank you sweet, Erika, you are a gem!
We added Greek key trim to give the fur throw a custom detail.
She thought we could keep that brown beast - not a chance!
Thank goodness for Craigslist score #4, something unique to disquise the tv, and after
a makeover with Annie Sloan chalk paint (more to come) she's using it as a media
cabinet and dresser.
The tv component is right under the vase and book.
And, it gives off a beautiful, warm glow at night, we're pretty smitten with it.
Craigslist score #5, this huge ornate mirror popped up one day, eeek, it was
perfect for our big blank wall! We paired it with artwork from Homegoods.
She had her handyman add molding to the flat closet doors, and we painted it metallic gold.
Thanks for all your input, you guys won her over! :)
