Week six of the One Room Challenge is here! I didn’t finish, but I am happy with how far i’ve come. Before I started, I thought six weeks was plenty of time, and there was no way I wouldn’t finish in time. I think if I hadn’t been out of town for two of the six weekends, I could have got it done. Check back in a few weeks and hopefully, I’ll have it finished.
Let’s take a look back at how far the room has come:
The room is a pretty typical apartment bedroom – white walls, no overhead lights, mirrored closets. I am lucky to have our patio door connected to the room so we get a ton of natural sunlight. During the summer we were getting woken up every morning from the sun, so I put up blackout curtains. They fell off the wall halfway through the makeover though. Now that it’s fall we don’t get blinded by the sun, so I ended up not putting them back up, and I like how the room looks without them much more.
And here’s where the room is now:

I LOVE how it looks and feels now, but I know the final touches will make it so much better. Here’s what’s still left on my to-do list:
- Bedside wall scones – New frosted lightbulbs & actually hang the second one
- Art above the bed – I have the frame, but haven’t picked what to print yet
- Dresser – I tried for six weeks to find the perfect second-hand dresser and this is what I ended up with. I don’t love it, so I will probably change it at some point. It’s way too big for the space, but it will do for now.
- Dresser wall – Everything about this wall was thrown together at the last minute. Once I get a new dresser I’ll re-do the wall.
If you have any ideas for art to go above the bed, send your links my way!
I highly recommend you join the next challenge in the spring if you’ve been inspired by my transformation. It was a great challenge, and I discovered so many new blogs to follow. Check out all the amazing other participant’s projects here.
Thank you for following my journey, and stick around for more home decor projects. I still have a few other rooms in my apartment to makeover.
