One Room Challenge Week 4 – Small Changes and Big Ideas!

It’s week FOUR of One Room Challenge and not much has been done unfortunately. Don’t let that stop you from reading because I want to tell you about some of the decor choices I made this week.

As far as the rest of the room goes… we got the ceiling done finally. We had to sand it since last week. I wanted to paint the floor and walls but we need to prime the ceiling first. The primer splatters so much I didn’t want it getting all over the floor and walls. I’m also not entirely sure what color I’m doing the walls because we haven’t received the rug and bedding yet. Those should be coming this week.

I’m also hoping the mirrors from Urban Outfitters come this week too. I’m a little nervous because they’re on backorder. If they don’t come we’re going to have to replicate them for effect lol. I’ve already googled where to get iridescent cellophane. I would probably out that on two plain mirrors or something. Gotta get the job done, ya know?

closet progress

This is the closet in the guest room. It previously had pink and blue tropical removable wallpaper. We removed that and you can see the previous color.. pink of course.

As of now I’m not COMPLETELY sure about what I’m doing with the walls but I do have some furniture ideas.


I already have the vintage bamboo campaign desk. I’m deciding on the benches though. I really love the pink one because I think the shape and color add to the vibe I’m going for but I don’t think it looks that great with the desk. I’m thinking about ordering the white one for that reason. What do you think? Tell me in the comments.

There’s also a couple changes in the ideas for the decor. I’ve been switching things up here and there due to sponsorships and budget. The blue rug is from Rugs Direct. I absolutely love the rug. I was debating between blue and purple. I think the blue will look great though with the mirrors… if they ever come!

Ok. I promise I’ll have more progress for you next week! In the meantime go check out some of the other guests progress because they’re doing amazing!

    I agree, I think the blue will look good with those mirrors! Purple might be to matchy matchy with all the other violet in the room. Looks great so far, can’t wait to see the final results!
