ORC: The FINAL REVEAL! Kas Colorful Room

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Today's the day! The final reveal on our little girls room! I can't believe how fast six weeks has flown by. This is only my second One Room Challenge.  Last fall, I tackled a hallway, stair case, and multipurpose room that was only framed in.  ALL WITHIN A SIX WEEK TIME FRAME!  I will NEVER EVER do that again.  This time around, I wanted something that was realistic time-wise.  I chose my little five year old's room mainly because her bed was broken and we needed to replace it.  It was the perfect time to give her a fresh space! A vision was born, and I got to work putting a plan in place. I made some changes to the original board mostly due to budget, or time constraints.  I always like to reuse things if I can make them work in a room.

If you want a quick recap on my previous weeks you can view them here:

Week 1 // Week 2 // Week 3 //  Week 4 //  Week 5

Royal Design Studio Stencil's agreed to send me a stencil of my choice. I chose this cheetah stencil for a modern, and yet whimsical touch to her space.  I will be posting more details on how I stenciled her ceiling in a separate posting, but for now, enjoy the pictures!

This week was another busy one.  I'm not sharing a lot this week, because I want to leave the suspense for the big reveal next week!  If you remember the original plan, I planned on adding some fabric to the white panels on the bed to tie in the window shades, and add some color to her bed.  I purchased some additional fabric from Tonic Living, and then headed to Home Depot to have them cut some thin sheets of luan plywood to size.  I laid out the panels on top of the fabric to strategically place which flowers I wanted to showcase.  Ha! I love this picture.  Someone's excited to move back into her room and all her stuffed friends are watching me.  It is a constant struggle keeping her out of her space while I'm working in here!

The panels were SO easy to add.  I just wrapped and stapled the fabric to the plywood, and then positioned them in each opening.  The end ones fit so tight I didn't need to do anything else.  The long piece was long enough that I wanted to make sure it was secured properly.  I just bought some industrial strength, 2" vinyl strips and adhered them to the back.  I will show you the finished bed next week on reveal day!

Another before pic of what the bed looked like without the fabric panels.

We got to make her bed this week with the bedding that Beddy's sent me.  I was SO excited to partner with this company.  I have always wanted to try their bedding, and this was the perfect space to use it in.  Have you ever heard of them?  You literally zip your bed up to make it every morning. Their slogan is, "kids can make, zip their own bed."  It's almost like a sleeping bag for your mattress, and there is the SOFTEST blanket that is sewn into the inside.

Trust me, if you are in the market for bedding, you will NOT be disappointed with this!  I ordered the Chic White which is simply beautiful.  The ruffles, the texture, the color, and the quality is absolute perfection. Their service was so prompt too. From the time my order was placed, to the time that it was delivered, was a little less than a week!

Under the bed will be turned into a reading area.  I plan to add wall book shelves, a light, and some plush pillows for her to have a creative reading area. I found a fun bold green fabric to create some privacy curtains and to add across the bottom of her bed.  More to come on this project...

I am LOVING how this room is coming together, and so is she!

I will leave you with this last sneak peek.  If you follow me on Instagram, you may catch a glimpse of a few more peeks into her space before the final reveal.

Good luck to my fellow participants as you finish your spaces!  I can't wait to see the full reveals of some amazing spaces I've been following along.

I am grateful for the companies who trusted my vision for this space and partnered with me on this room!
