Week 2 of One Room Challenge - Master bedroom makeover

This week went by so fast! You know what they say "time flies when you are having fun," in my case time is flying because I am so busy!  Though, I can't say I am not having fun with this One Room Challenge, the designing and the projects are so exciting.  My major DIY project for this challenge is making my gigantuous (I don't think thats a real word) headboard.  I wanted the headboard to make a statement in this room and hopefully it does.  I'll be finished with it hopefully by tomorrow, I have to wait for mirror pieces that are going on the headboard to be ready.  I will give you the detailed run down on how to make this headboard at the end of ORC.

Last few days, I tweaked my design plan so many times I am not sure what the final room is going to look like.  I have a feeling the plan is going to evolve few more times, you can see the first week's plan here.

Here is the new plan...
The fabric above is the route I am trying to go with for the curtains.  I always choose white or neutral solid color curtains to be safe, but this time I would like to use a print for the curtains.  

The bed is being upholstered and putting a mirror border around the frame.  

The side tables are going to be an Ikea hack, my anticipated plan is that above.  However, that can possibly change, I have so many different ideas for it.

Here is the progress with bed...

My husband constructing the headboard with plywood and 2 X 4s.

I hope you go visit the talented participants at Calling it home, you won't be sorry, They are loaded with inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Your headboard is looking great and I'm interested to see in how you're going to incorporate mirrors on it. Sounds beautiful.

  2. The best plans are the ones that evolve over time. This is looking beautiful. I wish I had a handy husband. :)

  3. oooh, this is going to be good! You've made terrific progress on your headboard--all I've done is cut my plywood!.

  4. That fabric on the headboard looks great! Love the IKEA hack picture too, can't wait to see what it looks like!

  5. Looking good! There is nothing better than a big headboard--I wanted ours to be the statement piece in the master, too! Can't wait to see week 3!!!
