One Room Challenge update Week 4

Whew! Welcome to week four of the One Room Challenge! If you are new to the blog, welcome! I’m so happy you are here. Just so you don’t feel late to the party, you can catch up with what up here: Week 1 Week 2 Week 3

So, week four was filled with some crazy cursing and some serious discussions about whether or not the tool gods were plotting against us. We broke the blade guard on our saw while trying to finish our DIY headboard, our pneumatic nail gun literally blew apart not once (hello Home Depot) but twice, and our paint sprayer didn’t even bother to tease us and simply refused to work at all. <Insert big sigh> Despite all of this, we managed to make some headway.


Setbacks aside, we finished the headboard. It was not easy (we had to work without the guard), but my hubby got it done! I’ll post a tutorial later this weekend. Here is a peek:



The headboard is a bit of a beast but I love the texture it adds to the space.

I finally figured out what to do about the plant wall. I had an idea of what I wanted, and nothing was working. One of the options I had thought about was several small shelves with pots of plants, but I only had room for 2 or 3 shelves when I measured it out. Not the visual impact I had in mind. I finally landed on the idea of a pouch of sorts. But I needed something to attach the pouches too. I tried a few things before settling on a vintage farm drag (it looks like an old piece of a fence) that I had in the shed. WOOT! WOOT! I spray-painted it black and made felt pockets to hold the plants.



I propagated some of these plants myself!

That is it for this week. We have still have a few things left to do:

-Work on closet doors

-Hang Blinds

-Install Fan

-Stage room

I also need to find new bedding, as the bedding I bought arrived, and it’s really peachy pink instead of blush. If you have suggestions, please leave them in the comments.
