One Room Challenge Final Reveal

Welcome back to the One Room Challenge, we are at the end… week 6!!! Hard to believe the challenge is over. I’m pretty excited I made it, not that I didn’t think I wasn’t going to but this last week was crazy. I would like to thank Linda from Calling it Home for putting on this challenge. It was very motivating and I’m sure that if it weren’t for the ORC I would have had the same bedroom for at least another 3 – 6 months.

This was my inspiration board from week 1

Inspiration Week 1

Here is what our bedroom looked like before


I still had my IKEA bed frame from university and not much else was going on in the room. The room was lifeless and definitely wasn’t relaxing.

We now have a fresh and relaxing Master Bedroom…


Lets see another before and after… I love this, especially when it’s my own room!





My mom bought me a set of furniture for my room when I was little. When I moved out, I took some of the pieces with me and painted them. For the ORC all I had to do was change the hardware.

The chair is from a church bazaar, my mom got it for $10! I had it recovered with the same fabric as one of the pillows.




I found this beautiful chandelier on kijiji for $50!! I love it.

My friend picked up the vintage lamps on Queen West in Toronto, they fit perfectly!! Thank you, Michelle!

Matt and I made the headboard. It wasn’t too hard but I was scared to try anything other than a straight border, especially because I chose stripes for the fabric.

I love my Minted art pieces above the side tables, they definitely add to the feel of the room.



I made this yellow rose arrangement for my grandma when I was a little girl and she kept it in her cabinet along with her Royal Doulton figurines.  I have it now because she passed away almost 2 years ago… there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of her.

The little Eiffel Tower is from our trip to Paris 2 years ago!



I want to thank all of my friends, coworkers, and family who supported me and helped me throughout this challenge. Especially to my loving husband for hanging pictures at midnight and making the headboard with me. Thank you to my mom for making the bed skirt and for all of your help.

Hope you enjoyed following along, and who knows… maybe I will try it again next year!

    I love that style of chair. The pops of wood between the chair and the nightstands are really speaking to me. I looooove that chandelier too. The glass arms are beautiful.

    Pleated drapes and chair upholstery by Cynthia Nadine at And Sew it Begins… Looking great! Beautiful job!

    Those textiles are simply, lovely genius!! And the chandelier… Oh goodness. And I love how you addressed that long bank of windows. I can’t pick a favorite!

  7. Brenda

    You have a lovely room! I like all of your choices but I especially like the lamps on the nightstand (what a great friend with good taste!) and the artwork over your dresser. $50.00 for the chandelier? Unbelievable.

    […] multiple items in the nursery, a bookcase that I found that was left for garbage, my childhood bedroom dresser, updated some old lights with spray paint, and painted an old barn door in our kitchen. I really […]
