One Room Challenge Week 5 Fall 2020

Soft Gray Velvet Quilted Bedding and Miss June loves it!

It’s time for the One Room Challenge Week 5 update on our guest room and whew… this week has been a doozy! This is a story for a different day, but to sum it up, my husband suffered a compression fracture of his spine and dislocated his shoulder on Halloween night. My immediate reaction was to delete my first 4 weeks of posts and just drop out of the One Room Challenge, but after thinking about it, I decided to keep trying to see if I could make this happen on my own. This year has just been a year that keeps on giving!

This week the bedding arrived and I’m happy with the choice. Winter is coming so I chose a velvet, gray quilted bedcover. I had originally thought I was going to go with something in the beige family. I took the beige comforter off of our master bed and spread it out in the guest room we’re re-doing. The beige did not look good with the new rug at all and I’m so glad I tried the beige first. The gray definitely looks so much better!

Here’s what the bed is looking like so far. The velvet comforter is so soft. I actually ordered it in a king size for two reasons. (the bed is full size).

  1. I wanted to be sure everything tucked in really well
  2. I wanted to be able to steal this for my own bed at some point. ๐Ÿ˜‰
Pardon the mess! We’re under construction here ๐Ÿ˜‰ I wanted to show you the leg on the bed and the tucked bedding.

Things we’ve completed so far:

I’m not sure if the shams are staying.

Things I still need to do:

  • Purchase a curtain rod and window coverings
  • Complete the DIY picture hanger that I’ll share later if it works! It’s a Pottery Barn dupe!
  • Select print(s) for the wall behind the bed
  • Choose a nightstand or two
  • Decide on lamps or wall lights
  • Do I need a bench?
  • Order the little things that complete a room
  • Hang the light
  • Paint the closet doors – I’ve got to be honest on this one, Photoshop may have to work until we have some recovered bodies in our home!

I probably shouldn’t have typed this list right before bed. I’m one that will be up all night making decisions at 3 am! (Did I mention I’m having shoulder surgery myself in January? Well, I have to do all of this with a wounded arm and without my partner in crime. Yikes!) Thank you again for following along. I’ll have more updates and a final reveal in the next couple of weeks so be sure to check-in.

Happy decorating, Denise

  1. Thank you. Just one more week and this challenge will be done. I’m loving the room so far and am excited to finally complete a room!

  2. Oh my but it sounds like you have had a rough week. Iโ€™m not sure how you got the energy to move forward with this challenge this week but Iโ€™m think you will be glad you did when the room is all completed! Your bedding choice actually brings out the colors in the rug. I hope your partner in crime is feeling better soon so he can help with this daunting project.
