ORC: Week 4 - Peyton's Room Update

I finally began painting the room. It is not done yet, as it needs another coat of paint. I used Behr Compass Blue in eggshell finish, and I love it! It is a very rich color. Surprisingly these photos make the color appear royal blue, but it is extremely dark.


I mentioned last week I was going to remove the ceiling fan blades and paint them navy. Well, I spray-painted them, but then proceeded to repaint the blades using the same paint I used on the wall. 

At first, I was a bit nervous as to how they would turn out, but fortunately, I have no regrets.

I also made this artwork for the room because my son loves cars. It was difficult to capture a good shot because of the glare. 

I purchased this rug This rug is a lovely purchase from Urban Outfitters. Orange accents blend nicely with the navy walls in the room.

Hopefully you have already checked out the other great talents  over at  Linda's. I am probably the last to post....(shame, shame), but I will not give up :-)

Have a great weekend!

ORC: Week 3 - Peyton's Room Makeover

After returning from vacation, my husband managed to install the ceiling fan. I must say that immediately after it went up, I decided to paint the blades. 

Fortunately, to my surprise, :-) he had no problem taking it apart. Next week, I will reveal the fan with the painted blades. I needed enough time to allow them to dry before putting them back up.

I am also working on painting six of these for his room.

I am trying to execute my weekly plans as much as possible. Please take a look at the other spaces over at Calling It Home. Thanks for stopping by. 

One Room Challenge: Week 2 - Peyton's Room Design Board

I am simply amazed by the number of Linking Participants who so willingly accepted this recent challenge. It is evidence of how important, motivation and encouragement are, to the execution of proper design.

This week, I am away on Family Vacation, so I did not get to physically change anything in the room. I managed, however, to put together a design board, visibly revealing my plan.

 I also purchased few items for the room; one being this lovely ceiling fan which my husband promised that he would install, once we arrived home.

Well, that wraps it up for Week 2. Tomorrow, I will be returning home from my (road) trip, and that will afford me time to stop at Ikea, and do some more shopping. 

Please send some encouragement to the other linking participants who are actively progressing with their spaces. Thanks for stopping by :-) 

One Room Challenge: Week 1 - Plan for Peyton's Room

It's here again! The long anticipated ORC! I am so excited to begin work on my son's future bedroom. 

As you can see, the room is lacking in so many ways, but I plan to change all that real soon. It has been vacant for such a long time that it seemed like a detached part of the house. The furniture will be replaced; also the wall stencils....lol {those stencils look way worse up close, believe me :-) }
My inspiration had come from here.

My son is only 2 1/2 years old, yet does have a mind of his own. He is able to state his likes versus his dislikes quite verbally, and expresses a love for cars, (or anything with wheels). He is very excited and keeps saying, "this is my room" :-)

My goal for this space includes an automotive theme, coupled with small touches of things little boys adore (trains, dinosaurs etc.).   
The color scheme I am going for is light blue and navy blue, with orange and green accents. 


1. Paint
2. Install ceiling fan 
3. Purchase dresser
4. Buy mattress and box spring (already have a convertible crib)
5. Buy bed frame
6. Add side table
7. Add art
8. Rugs and accessories
9. Add curtains and rod
10. Mount wall lamps 

Here are few inspiration pictures...

Well that about wraps it up for my first week. I am as excited as always to be part of this challenge. Thanks Linda, for the encouragement :-). Kindly check out the plans of the other linking participants and have a great day!
