One Room Challenge {Week Two}: Farmhouse Master Bedroom Design Updates

Hello my friends! Welcome to Week Two of the One Room Challenge!

One Room Challenge

I couldn’t be more excited to be taking part in the One Room Challenge this Fall, designing a new Farmhouse Master Bedroom (though this six week timeline might just be the death of me)! #whatwasIthinking

I kicked things off last week 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). But, to redeem myself, I also shared my Farmhouse Master Bedroom Design plans, which have me totally over-the-moon excited!

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

So, here’s what I’ve been up to this week…

I brightened things up with some floor to ceiling white paint.

I ripped off all of our existing baseboards and trim.

I started stencilling a feature wall with this beautiful stencil in this light greige colour.

Here’s a little sneak peek of how things are moving along with that. Really hoping I’ll have it all finished up for next week’s post.

I finally chose an accent colour and I cannot wait to show you how I plan to use it!!!

Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron

What’s the plan for next week? Well, I’m hoping to finish up that stencilled wall, refinish our gorgeous antique bedside tables and the matching dresser and build and paint our DIY faux fireplace (can’t wait to see how that one turns out!). #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
-sew bedskirt
-build faux fireplace

  1. That stencil is gorgeous! I love your accent colour too. I’ve thought of using the Wrought Iron colour before, I can’t wait to see how you pull the colour in

  2. Oh my goodness that stencil is AMAZING!!! You have gotten so much done already! I love where this room is going and I can’t wait to see your planked ceiling! Truthfully, we had planned on doing that in the nursery but time isn’t our friend, so it’s not happening this time. Can’t wait to see what’s next!

    1. Awwwww, you’re the best Thalita! I’ve been feeling SO, overwhelmingly behind! I just hope I can somehow get it all done!!! Thanks for the encouraging words my friend! xo

  3. I literally exclaimed, “THAT STENCIL!!!” outloud! AMAZING! Where’s the fast forward button so I can preview next week???

    1. Thank you SO much Sam! The wall looks so much better than I had imagined and I cannot wait to share! Here’s hoping I can tackle the rest now ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Thank you Jenna! I’ve definitely got a tutorial post planned, though I might not find the time to share it until after the One Room Challenge ๐Ÿ˜‰ It did take a while at first, but went pretty quickly once I got the hang of it.

  4. Wow, girl, you’ve got quite the to-do list!! That stencil on the wall looks gorgeous though. I know it’s all going to turn out beautiful, just like everything else you do ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to see it all finished! Thanks for linking up to Brag-Worthy Thursday!

  5. I love how you’ve broken this project down into bite sized pieces! We are getting ready to redo our bathroom, and it seems so overwhelming. I think we need to break it down like you have here.

    I love your choices, beautiful colors and ideas!

    1. Thank you Jamie! I’m all about lists my friend – there’s nothing more satisfying than listing out each and every thing I need to do and then crossing them all off, one-by-one! Good luck with the bathroom! Hoping that’ll be next up on our list too!

  6. Kristi, you have done so much already where do you find all the time?! It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do to a room and adding that stencil, while super time consuming, is so worth it for the beautiful custom finish look! You have some major DIY projects on your to do list, but know you’ll get them all done and it will be fab as always! Can’t wait to see the planked ceiling!! Let’s do this! XOXO, Sarah

    1. Thank you SO, SO much Sarah! You are the absolute sweetest! I am in LOVE with our new stencilled wall and can’t wait to share it next week! I’m really starting to doubt that we’ll make it through everything, but I’m sure we’ll love it no mater what! Good luck girl, can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to this week too!!!
