I’m so excited to be here for another One Room Challenge. Linda at Calling It Home hosts a six week long blog event where 20 participants and many more linking participants spend the weeks designing one room and blogging about it. You can catch my first, second, third , and fourth ORC’s here. My daughter, Tabitha, has been campaigning to have her room done this time, so that’s the plan. She is 12, and while her room has never been very juvenile, she’s ready for something different. I’m going to let her make the decisions. I’m just going to facilitate.
Here’s how her room looked when we bought our house:
Here’s how it looked before the Fall 2015 ORC. We took her bed and moved it to the downstairs Guest Room that I redid for the last ORC. Since then her room has been in design limbo.
Her plan is to move her bed into the plant ledge part of the space. We will hopefully have someone change the half-height wall to a full wall so it will be more quiet and private for her. She wants a platform bed and a net canopy in this space. Here are a few spaces she’s using as inspiration:
The main part of the room will be turned into the office/hang-out space. She’ll have her TV, computer, and a seating area in there. I hope to add storage in her closet and bathroom so she can be more organized. Here are some inspiration photos for this part of the room:
That’s our plan. This week I’m interviewing contractors to find someone who can do the work in our time frame and that hopefully I can afford. Tabitha and I will shop for bedding, window treatments, and art. She wants an entire wall of prints and other wall art. That will take a bit of time to assemble I think.
Have a fabulous week!
