ORC Guest Participant, Week 2

October 15th, 2015

Hello lovelies! It’s week two of the One Room Challenge and I’ve made some great headway. First off, let’s spill on my inspiration. For those of you just joining, I’ve decided to completely renovate our main guestroom.  It’s something I pulled together quickly right before our wedding and in NO WAY reflects my taste.  Blame the new job, home and wedding all in a month’s time, but I did not make good decisions. I want to lighten the room up and add a much more modern feel.  The tacky ceiling fan is going down and hopefully a fun lantern will replace it.  Tim and I are going to attempt to add wainscoting this weekend to the bed wall.  Here’s some shots from my secret Pinterest board:

I have one moodshot that REALLY encompasses my entire vision. This is what I’m hoping to accomplish in my own way:

Stunning, right? I ordered a headboard and had a FANTASTIC find in the first five minutes of flea market shopping with my friend in Chelsea last Saturday:


I am SO excited about that!!! Just you wait to see what it becomes. The headboard was tough.  I have a hard time committing to something furniture-wise when it’s in my own home.  I finally ordered this gem from Wayfair:


Thanks so much for following! I’m looking forward to the end already. Head here to see what everyone else is up to!

  13. Hey Katy, I love your little model and inspiration! I’ve always wanted wood accent wall like the ones in your inspiration photos and thought about it for quick min. for my master bedroom in my first ORC, but it was too much to pull off for me. That headboard is beautiful and love Wayfair! This is going to be a wonderful guest retreat! Can’t wait to see your progress! Let’s do this! XOXO, Sarah
