guest bedroom makeover-One Room challenge-week two

April 13, 2017

We are in week two of the ORC  (catch up on week 1 here) and things are moving along.  Today is prep day, the dreaded part of any makeover.  If I had a magic wand I would totally skip this part and go right to the fun part of decorating!  I have to remind myself that to get to the pretty you have to fix the ugly, so I better get started with this makeover, because week 6 will be here before I know it.

BEFORE

Let's take a look at the process to this madness: 

I partnered with my husband on this makeover!  We decided to keep the paneling and paint over it because I think it will give the bedroom a farmhouse feel. 

We started by pulling all of the nails and cup hooks out of the wall and ceiling. Then I scrubbed the paneling with soap and water. Next, we spackled all of the holes.  Whew! 


 Preparing a room for a makeover feels like it takes forever.  Everything is out of place and the room looks worse than when we started.

 The quote is so inspirational!  I want to share it with you for this challenge.



And this is the direction I am heading
