One Room Challenge 2017 Spring – Week 3



Hi Friend

Here we are at Week 3 of the Spring 2017 – ONE ROOM CHALLENGE 

If you are new to the ORC each year Linda of  Calling It Home host a Spring and Fall ORC where Guest Participants bloggers are invited to redo a room in 6 weeks.

More than 260 bloggers participated last Fall, so tons of inspiration for everyone.

My room this go round is my Guest Bedroom

We moved in just a little over a year ago and this room hasn’t had any TLC.

The ORC challenge was the perfect opportunity for me to get this room decorated.

Quick Re-Cap

This is the bedroom from where we started.  I know, pretty sad.

It provided a place for guest to sleep, but that is about all it provided.

My plan is to brighten the room and make it welcoming and relaxing.

Let’s take a look at what I have done in WEEK 3 ……………..

 ORC Spring 2017 Guest Bedroom Decorating Ideas

For me I like to clear the room, its like starting with a clean slate…..clear the room…..clear the mind.

New Bed and mattress arrived and is assembled.  I would of waited to put the bed up, since the room is getting new paint, but this room will be used this weekend even though it is in the middle of renovation.

 Iron Black/Bronze bed. To me this bed frame is black not bronze. The Restonic Hybrid Mattress Comfortcare is a firm mattress with a pillow top memory foam design.  I will be posting a follow up review of the mattress in the future weeks.

It took us several weeks to decide on a mattress, I will let you know how we came to settle on this particular Restonic Hybrid mattress in another post. 

ORC Guest Bedroom

 This week was the week of painting the night stands.  The bigger dresser is my to do for the next couple of days.




Here is my wish list for the room:

    • New Bed and Mattress
    • Comforter & Bedding
    • Night stands (Painted)
    • Dresser (will paint this week)
    • Lamps
    • Accent chair for window area (It is  here)
    • Wall Art
    • Area Rug (here) 
    • Plants
    • Accessories
    • Paint Walls (paint by Sherwin Williams China Doll)
    • Throw Pillows (sponsed & some I made)
    • Miscellaneous items

OK, so what I hope to accomplish for this Week 4 is:

Finish the furniture painting

Finalize bedding plans – some I am making and some are being purchased.

Paint bedroom walls – Sherwin Williams is supplying my paint  in the color of China Doll. Can’t wait to see it on the walls.

Assemble chair

Also need to purchase lamps and decorating accessories for the room

WHOA…….I need more time…….I hope I can pull this off.  Cross my fingers.

      Hi CoCo ……thank you and boy I was wore out by the time we finally selected this mattress….we were all over the place looking at different options, prices, quality etc. If our old mattress had been hurting my back so much I would of probably given up…Ha! Thanks for stopping by. Hugs!

    Ha, you should have your guests “help out” with the bedroom renovations while they are visiting (that’s what I do at least!). Good luck getting everything done on time ๐Ÿ™‚
