Tween Girls' Bedroom Update - ORC: Week 4

It is Week 4 of the One Room Challenge and I can say ruefully that time flies when you're having fun! As a matter of fact, I think the ORC must account for loads of it because as soon as I make a post, then the next week's post quickly follows suit.  
With only two weeks to go, I am trying my best to get the room complete, in time for reveal day.




I received this pendant light a week ago and am pretty much stoked about having it hung. My intention was to have had it installed earlier but the light kit was not in stock at the time of purchase and as a result, I had to order it to be delivered at a later date.

Knock-Off Mirror for Girl's Bedroom - ORC: Week 3

Week Three of the One Room Challenge is upon us folks! Need I say more?

 Between my daughter taking the Milestones exams and my son celebrating his birthday last week, I barely got anything done.

On another note,  I fell in love with this wood beaded mirror and figured I could get away with a knock-off version except that it has more of a rectangular shape. 

Personally, I believe every princess needs a full-length mirror in their bedroom for form and function.
And we all know that the right frame adds style to a room, making it look more elegant... agree? Additionally, if mirror frames are elaborate in design they can greatly enhance the look of a room.

Tween Girl's Bedroom Redo - ORC: Week 2

Wow, Week one of the challenge flew by so quickly and I just can not believe we are already in Week two. Happily, I made some progress with painting the walls and getting the popcorn ceiling scraped. The ceiling was not previously mentioned in my plan 😊, however, I thought it would be fun to try something new.  I am still contemplating what tone would work well, or if I should use a certain technique to spruce it up. But knowing me, something will definitely strike my fancy at the last minute.


Here are a few accessories I picked up for the room


Well here are some photos of what I have been up to at this point.



I painted the room and I love it! While the former bright colors were lovely, I am enjoying a new look for a change. 

Tween Girl's Bedroom Makeover - ORC: Week 1





Yay! I am happy to report that I am diving in headlong again as a guest participant in the popular  One Room Challenge (ORC). This season, the targeted space is my tween daughter's bedroom. 
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the ORC, it is a biannual event that includes 20 designers and more than 100 guest participants who makeover/decorate a space in just 6 short weeks. Each week, participants take us on their journey to reveal the challenges and successes encountered along the way. The ORC then culminates on week 6 when the final reveal is made. 



My daughter's bedroom is currently one of the most favorite spaces in the house and is constantly referred to as "the pink and green room".
As you can see, the color scheme is quite beautiful but my daughter outgrew it after having lived with all the decor for 10 years.
