One Room Challenge Master Bedroom – Week 2

Hello folks!  I’m back to make a report on my One Room Challenge “progress”.  Well, I have to say we made a little bit of progress this week. 

You may have noticed that my inspiration photos were quite varied.  I know I want cozy, and I know I want a beach cottage vibe – as much as you can get in Oklahoma.  

Something in me was screaming ‘accent wall – navy blue!!’.  I don’t know why but I have been crushing on navy lately.  So, I went to my paint stash in my garage and found almost 2 quarts of navy that I had used in my sons room, and I started painting.  Luckily I had just.enough to finish!!

I fell in love instantly.  I love this navy so much – it’s not too dark – more cadet like.  It is a Walmart Colorplace color called Inlet Blue.  I have had it for years and when I went to see if they still had it, I couldn’t find that name.  URGH!!  But, in the meantime I found one that was super close from Behr called Mood Indigo. {side note – I do not like online color swatches, I don’t think they are a good representation of the color.}  Here is a pic that shows a truer color against the white of the rest of the room.  

I made my first attempt at an upholstered headboard, and my oh my was that a simple and straight-forward project!!  How to attach it/hang it, or whatever had me stumped for a couple of days, but a little bit of research led me to the perfect solution – more on that later.  For now, it is hung and lookin’ fab!!

I have had this fabric stashed away for a couple of years, specifically for this project {sad huh?}.  It is upholstery weight that I found on the flat fold sale table at Joann’s.  I think I paid $15 for around 3 yards, which left me with some leftover.

The pattern is very subtle and if you are not right up next to it, you might miss it.  Which is just what I wanted.  Neutral with a little personality.  

As I’ve said before, the big things for me need to be neutral so I can change out the lesser things when I get bored.  

The next task is one that my heart has just not been into this week – painting trim and doors. Not my favorite task, but I plan on finishing out all the woodwork white as I work my way around the bedrooms this summer and fall, so it must be done.  

So, there ya have it.  Hope to have more to show and tell next week.  REally trying to stretch my budget to the max on this one, so I’m gonna have to get creative 🙂
