Welcome back to One Room Challenge Fall 2014!
If you’re just joining us in One Room Challenge, it’s a 6 week interior design challenge hosted by Linda from Calling it Home to design or makeover over a room. You can find my previous ORC master bedroom here.
I’m loving the feminine touch that also is fit for a princess, according to Sofia, who helped me pick them out! I had planned to hang them, but that didn’t happen and is on my to do list starting today.
Next up was tackling the chandelier install. If you recall from my mood board, that I was inspired by Pottery Barn Kids paper chandelier, pictured above. This is the actual chandelier.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I started installing this solo the other day.
The install was going well. I had figured out how to remove this boring light fixture.
I only had 3 more steps to go and then I hit a wall. I needed a second pair of hands to help hold the chandelier while I finished the wiring. With the daylight hours dwindling and the days numbered, I finally recruited my husband to come home from work earlier. Of course once we finished the last few steps the wiring isn’t right and the ceiling canopy isn’t secure. We’ll have to wait to until the weekend to complete this project…UGH!
I did hang all the wall art, including Sofia’s own master pieces this week. I also bought a new art display board with birds for her art work.
Lastly, the decision about the bedding: To buy all new bedding or to use what we have. Since we already have a few bedding items that Sofia hasn’t grown out of yet I’ve decided to mix and match it with other bedding we already own. This is a temporary solution until we decided to invest in a full or twin mattress and bedding for Sofia, which all depends on if our two girls end up sharing a room in the next few months.
My punch/to do list for Sofia’s Big Girl Room:
Update the over all look of the room to match her age More toy storage (her room has become the toy zone/play room in our home) Update the photos (I still have baby/1-year-old photos displayed)
