My Bedroom Refresh

Week three is here and, wow, there is not enough hours in a day! If you have been following along, then you know I’ve been busy working away and creating ideas for this refresh of my son’s bedroom, which will also be a guest room for friends and family. In previous challenges, there’s a common trend where I am pretty much scrambling around week three and four.




I have been waiting around for some supplies that I ordered the last week to make the indigo pillows and they have not arrived. What else is new?! I also had a few disappointing moments in this challenge where the fabric I wanted was out of stock. Now the tables I saw online are on back order. Back to drawing board I go!



It’s Down to the Wire.

With less than two weeks to complete this challenge, I am hoping that everything falls into place this week. Below is a summary of what has been done. The hard part is deciding what to do with what’s left?

  • I have tie dyed a sheet with turquoise. (will be posting on the DIY process later.) ($4.50)
  • Added round braided rug at foot of bed. ($0)
  • 2 small white slip covered chairs placed in sitting area. ($0)
  • 2 pillow forms for another dying project for bed. ($4.00)
  • Indigo Dye. ($12.00)
  • 2 watercolor pictures to be added in sitting area.(0)

Total spent so far is $20.50! I still have about $79.50 to get an end table and whatever else is needed for last minute touches. If this is your first time checking out my blog here is week 1/ week 2. Please stop by the link party below and go visit the other gals amazing room re-dos. Thanks for coming and enjoy the rest of your day! Special thanks to Erin from Lemon, lavender and Laundry for a great job in organizing such a fun challenge.
