One Room Challenge Week One – Master Bedroom Retreat

Today is a really exciting day as I am participating in my first ever One Room Challenge! You will see how I plan to turn my master bedroom into a retreat.  The ORC is organized by the super talented Linda at Calling It Home.   For those of you not familiar with ORC, it is a biannual event every April and October. 

One Room Challenge - Week One-Master Bedroom Retreat-Our Crafty MomThis is basically how it works. Every Thursday for the next 6 weeks, Guest Participants (bloggers)  participate and share their progress at the ORC room transformation party. We have 6 weeks to complete a room. There are so many unbelievably talented participants, which is why I am so excited and nervous! While I know it is going to be hard work, I love a good challenge and the pride once the room is complete will be worth the effort! I hope you will follow along with me and all the participants to see the progress each week. 


Here are a few of my ideas for my master bedroom retreat, but things may change as we go along:

Here is what my room looks like now:

The room has what I call “good bones”. The high ceilings and beautiful half moon window totally made me fall in love with this space. I can actually see the moon from this window when it is out.

The wall color will stay as it is very warm and soothing. To create a master retreat, I plan to add a reading/blogging area at the foot of the bed which is also a perfect spot for television viewing.

The furniture is 20 years old and is showing wear and also I am kind of bored with it! Both the large dresser and the sleigh bed will receive a makeover with paint and new knobs for the dresser. This will definitely brighten up the room and create the cozy look I am going for. I also have plans for the beam above the television. This is a big DIY project and I will have to enlist my Dad’s help on this one!

There are plans to make a second Cage Light Door Project for the opposite side of the bed to add symmetry, as well as thrift store night stands given a makeover of course!

Beautiful new bedding, luxurious linens, fluffy pillows and an area rug will bring in texture and warmth. Of course, I have several DIY projects planned including a tall DIY Blanket ladder that I can’t wait to share with you! There you have it, a quick look at my room as it stands now and my plans to create a Master Bedroom Retreat! 

Pin It! So You Don’t Forget It.
