If you’re new here and have no idea what on earth I’m talking about, you can learn more and see Week 1 here. Also, if you’d like to learn more about me, you can find that information here.

 

The Fall 2018 One Room Challenge – Week 2 Update

I’m so happy to report that I’m moving right along with the guest bedroom makeover and so far I’m pretty much on schedule with my game plan. Yay!!! The only thing I haven’t gotten to yet this week is my D.I.Y. art project, but I’m hoping to at least get started on that this weekend.

To refresh your memory, here’s a quick glance at my game plan again: 

Week 1:  Introduction; Share Inspiration Board, Overall Plan and Weekly Game Plan. Start Purchasing Needed Items. ✔

Week 2:  Share Furniture Layout and Other Design Ideas; Clean and Clear Everything Out of Room; Work on D.I.Y. Art; Continue Purchasing Needed Items. ✔

Week 3:  Paint Room; Install Feature Wood Wall; Install New Lighting Fixtures; Finish D.I.Y. Art.

Week 4:  Make Window Treatment; Place All Furniture in Room; Hang Wall Decor.

Week 5:  Dress The Bed; Accessorize Room; Professional Photo Shoot.

Week 6:  THE BIG REVEAL!!!

 

Guest Bedroom Floor Plan and Furniture Layout

This guest bedroom is approximately 11’W x 12’6″L and the closet is 6’6″W x 7’6″. Since I want my guests (and my son when he comes home) to be comfortable and have a pleasant night’s sleep, I am opting to put a queen sized bed in here. I’m also planning to have a bench in the recessed dormer area for additional seating or for a place to set overnight bags.

For this makeover, I’ll be keeping the existing carpet in here since it runs throughout the entire upstairs. Unfortunately, it’s just not in the budget this go round to replace all that carpet, so it has to stay. However, my son did live in this room for a number of years and there are some areas that are showing its age (ahem…stains), so I needed to come up with Plan B. To help cover up the stains further enhance the Ralph Lauren Southwest Lodge Inspired look I’m going for, I’m planning on placing an area rug in here. I’m even strongly considering layering two rugs in here (as shown on floor plan above) because I love that layered rug look, but I’m not 100% sure just yet. If I go that route, I’m thinking one area rug will be a plaid patterned rug, and the other will be a leopard print rug. In my mind and on paper this will look great, but we shall see! I would like to think Ralph himself would approve of this idea, since he’s all about creating a warm and welcoming look with layers and various prints and patterns.

 

Here are Some Before Photos of The Room

Don’t you just love kids and all their stuff? Even after they move out and are on their own they leave remnants behind for mom to take care of. Ugh! I’m happy to say all of this is now cleaned up and organized, and placed neatly in the closet. As you can see on the floor plan above, the closet is a pretty nice size (thankfully!), so I was able to move the desk, bookcase, and all my son’s stuff in there for safe keeping just in case he decides he needs these things.

And Here is The Room Fairly Cleaned Up and Empty and Almost Ready for Paint and The Wood Wall.

The bench will be going in that little dormer area. New art and wall decor will be replacing the existing wall decor/posters.

This wall will be the wood feature wall. And to say I’m excited about this is an understatement! By the way, how do you like my handsome model? Truman is our 2-1/2 year old Great Dane, and just has to be where the action is. He also has this uncanny ability to photo bomb every time I’m taking photos! Seriously, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME! You can see some of his photo-bombing  skills on my Instagram account here or more photos of him lounging pool side on this blog post here.

This is an interior wall that backs up to the hallway, and is also the entrance into the room. New artwork will be going on this wall.

This is a look at the closet wall. The chest will be staying, but I’m thinking of replacing the mirror with something beefier.

 

My Ralph Lauren Southwest Lodge Inspired Guest Bedroom Purchasing Is In Full Force!

I’m rocking and rolling with making the purchases for my Ralph Lauren Southwest Lodge Inspired Guest Bedroom. Woohoo! So far, I’ve purchased:

  • Queen Upholstered Tufted Bed
  • Queen Mattress and Box Spring Set
  • Leopard Area Rug
  • All Bedding To Include: Deer Sheet Set, Pendleton Blanket, Quilt, and Decorative Pillows. (Still need to buy pillow inserts though)
  • Bedside Lighting (These Gorgeous Hammered Silver Pendants).

If you saw my post last week (Week 1), you may notice these are different pendants than what I shared on my inspiration board. I was just about to order the original pendants when I saw these beauties, and fell in love with them and just had to have them! I think they’ll look even better than the original ones. Fingers crossed! Luckily, I’ve had this “horse artwork” forever, so that’s one piece I don’t have to find!

Oh, I guess I should point out that the decorative pillow (red, black, cream, and blue gray) was my jumping off point for the color scheme. I found this beauty and a few more that I’ll be using in here on a recent shopping trip at the Dallas World Trade Center. They were definitely a splurge, but totally worth it because I love them that much!

  1. My dog is always sitting next to me while I paint too. I think she hates when I’m working. It’s good to have a best friend around. Good luck!

    • That’s so cute, Emy! Our pets are really just 4-legged kiddos, don’t you think?! Thanks so much for your encouragement!

    • Thanks so much, Ola! Truman is a mess! Super lovable, but a mess nonetheless! I’m excited to get the wood feature wall up too!

    • Truman is always a willing participate! LOL! I’m very visual too and love to have a plan, but at times I do fly by the seat of my pants sometimes in my own home!

    • Thanks Libbie! I’m super excited about the feature wall too! Fingers crossed it turns out good! As for Truman, he’s a mess! He always knows how to get in the photos!

  2. I never did understand why my mom insisted that I remove ALL of my belongings when I moved out, but I totally get that now!! I love your room layout and the materials you’ve chosen. Your pup looks ready to take over the newly created room 🙂

  3. I love the combo of prints and colors in the textiles. This is a beautiful plan. Looking so forward to seeing your vision come to life. Susie from The Chelsea Project
