One Room Challenge: Week Two // Design Plan & DIY Projects

And just like that, we’re already its already Week Two of the One Room Challenge. As a quick reminder, the One Room Challenge is all about transforming a space in six weeks from start to finish and sharing the design process along the way. Every Thursday on my blog for six consecutive weeks, I’m sharing the process of giving my bedroom a complete design makeover. Last week, I shared my thought process for my bedroom re-design and inspiration, along with my weekly Master Bedroom to-do list. In addition to my master bedroom redesign, I’m giving my bathroom a fresh paint, a new shower curtain, and more organization.


The first week, there's not a lot of progress in my room, but decisions like paint and hardware have been made. This week I finally decided on the wall color for my master bedroom. I love the color grey and want to go a little deeper with the color scheme. I finally landed on the color Mindful Grey by Sherwin Williams. It’s such a pretty shade of grey and it’s going to look so good! I’m painting my bathroom a deeper shade of grey. All my bedroom trim and doors will be re-painted Swiss Coffee by Kelly Moore. All the painted will be completed this week/weekend!


I created a Master Bedroom floor plan to help me visual my bedroom layout, small tweaks like moving the dresser will be a big improvement design-wise in my bedroom. I made the simple room mock-up using Roomstyler, it was my first time using the software and it turned out pretty good!

Over the weekend the ugly shelves were removed, instantly making my bedroom feel larger. I still can’t believe I thought that was a good idea!


I’m breaking my to-do list up in chunks, that way I don’t feel overwhelmed. All the projects for my bedroom will be worked on after I get home from work and on weekends! It’s going to be a busy few weeks, but I’m up for the challenge! Next week our new bedroom furniture from Scandinavian Designs is arriving and I can’t wait to share the pieces we selected to take our room to the next level! Trust me they are so so good! With the furniture arriving next week, I HAVE TO get my to-do list done.

  • Patch Holes and prep walls for painting

  • Install crown molding // and additional molding TBD?

  • Paint Bedroom and Paint Baseboards and Doors, I have five doors in my small bedroom to paint: Master Bedroom Door, Closet Door, Bathroom Door, and French Doors! (send help)

  • Paint Master Bathroom

  • Clean & Paint dresser and install new hardware! My hardware arrived from CB2 and its perfection. I can’t wait to share next week


I’m so excited to share that my Design Collaboration partner for the One Room Challenge is Scandinavian Designs! They’re one of my dream brands; I’ve been shopping there for years for home furnishings. In fact, our last three sofas have all been from Scandinavian Designs! I’m in love with the quality of their products, streamlined style, and so much more! I can’t wait to share more about them in the upcoming weeks! I’m so so excited to work HANDy Paint Products, they’ve graciously sent me several painting helpers to make my projects easy!


Let me know if you have any questions! Next week on the blog, I’ll share updates of completed projects, fingers crossed, along with my mood board for my bedroom.
