One Room Challenge {Week Three}: Farmhouse Master Bedroom Progress

Hello, hello! Welcome to Week Three of the One Room Challenge! We’re officially halfway through our journey and I’m officially freaking out about all that’s left to do!!!

One Room Challenge

Despite my fears about how I can possibly get this all done in time, I couldn’t be more excited to be taking part in the One Room Challenge this Fall, designing a new Farmhouse Master Bedroom! #whatwasIthinking

I kicked things off in Week One with a ton of before photos showing our pathetic excuse for a master bedroom (not my favourite part of a room makeover, that’s for sure). Hopefully I redeemed myself, by sharing my Farmhouse Master Bedroom Design plans, which have me totally over-the-moon excited! Last week was all about progress, unfortunately, I can’t really say the same about this week.

I feel like every single thing I’ve taken on this week has taken about ten times longer than I had expected, which means I didn’t make it through as much as I’d hoped.

Here’s what I did actually accomplish this week…

I finished painting our stencilled wall and fell head-over-heels in love with it! Find the stencil I used here.

I came across the most perfect doorknobs for our vintage closet doors (though they’re going to need a good cleaning)!

I’m was SO excited to find this rug waiting for me on our doorstep this week…

Hubs and I have been working hard to put together our DIY Faux Fireplace and it’s looking even better than I’d imagined! It’s just waiting for a few coats of paint, but I can’t wait to show you how we made it!

I’ve chosen another dramatic colour to introduce into the space and I cannot wait to show you how I plan to use it (this is going to be BIG)!

What’s the plan for next week? Well, I’m hoping to finish up our Faux Fireplace, refinish our bedside tables and dresser and (why not shoot for the stars, right?) plank our ceiling. #wishmeluck

And, just for fun, here’s my updated list:
paint walls, doors, ceiling & trim
-stencil wall
-plank the ceiling
-change baseboards & trim
-change light fixture
-refinish dresser & bedside tables
-make & hang curtains
-refinish & mount antique closet doors
-sew pillows
-build faux fireplace

How I'm designing the Farmhouse Master Bedroom of my dreams (and then making it come to life in just six weeks)!

  1. Oh my gosh half way there already?! That stenciled wall is GORG. Can’t wait to see it in all it’s glory. And I’m excited to see how you use that dark paint color! Looking good my friend!

  2. I can’t believe that wall. It’s amazing!!!! Now question: how soft/harsh is that jute rug? I almost bought it but I was worried it’d be too rough for the babies.

    1. Thank you Thalita! The rug is actually pretty soft, it’s no plush rug by any means, but it’s not near as rough as I had expected. I wouldn’t think it would be too rough for the babes.

  3. I love your stenciled wall! I’m really excited to see your planked ceiling. I too am trying to decide on some kind of planking for my ceiling. Haven’t quite figured out what I’m doing there yet. I love every thing you’re doing. Can’t wait to see it all finished.

  4. I think you got more done than you think! Looks like you made great progress! We were super productive for week three too ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to see next week’s progress!

    1. Awwwww, thanks Lindi! I think I’m just feeling discouraged about everything there’s still left to do – here’s hoping we can make it through it all!

    1. Thank you SO much Jenna! I’m REALLY hoping we can cross a few more things off the list this weekend! Can’t wait to share that Faux Fireplace next week!

  5. Wow! I seriously canNOT wait to see more of this room! That stencil looks amazing. The rug is perfect and that charcoal?!?!?!? Come on girl! You’re right…it’s going to be BIG! Can’t wait to see the plank ceiling!

  6. Kristi, that stencil is beautiful and has dramatically changed your room! You say vintage and my eyes twinkle! Seriously loving the vintage door knob find and rug! Wishing we had a faux fireplace in our master, this is going to be stunning! Keep up all the hard work my friend! XOXO, Sarah

    1. Awwww, thank you Sarah! I’m totally head-over-heels in love with it all so far! Here’s hoping the rest comes together as perfectly!!! Thank you so much friend! xo

  7. It is looking sooo good! That stencil just kills me and I’m trying to figure out where I can do one! Can’t wait to see it all finished! (p.s. – thanks for supporting our link party, friend!)

    1. Thank you Carol! It’s been a ton of work already and, with just two weeks to go until the reveal, I’m definitely worried about whether we can pull it all off! I’ve gotta say, I’m absolutely dying to see it too!

  8. I stenciled my daughter’s room and know from experience the time it takes (and patience!) and your room looks beautiful. Sharing today on The Painted Drawer Link Party and thanks for linking up!

  9. Just gorgeous! Perhaps I’ve missed it, but I’d love to know the color you used for the stencil. I’m absolutely in love with this space. Thank you for the inspiration.

    1. Thank you Tonya! I’m so happy you are feeling inspired! I first painted the wall with Cloud White and then used Edgecomb Grey with the stencilling – both are from Benjamin Moore.

I can't wait to hear your thoughts?
