Remember that time that we tore up our only main-level bathroom a few weeks before Christmas and knocked out a complete remodel in about a month, while also working full time jobs, entertaining and visiting family over the holidays, and wrangling a 17 month old?
YEAH. ME NEITHER.
We thought this was a good plan. We did, in fact, demo our bathroom down to the sub-floor, tile backer, plaster and lath walls the second week of December. It is now Mid-February, and Jesse and I are still tip-toeing downstairs nearly naked in the middle of the night when we have to pee because we are apparently 80 years old and can’t make it a full night without getting up.

You guys. It’s the final week of my first ever One Room Challenge. Hard to believe that I started this little project six weeks ago. Almost harder to believe that I managed to put up a blog post for 6 consecutive weeks (plus one bonus post, it may be a record!)
If you missed it, Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5
I am so excited to share this with you, I could pee my pants! It turned out even dreamier than I was hoping. But first…
Huge thanks to Linda at Calling it Home, for hosting such an awesome event and letting Joe Schmos like me get in on the action. Between the weekly deadlines, the encouragement from other participants, and the inspiration from all of the other transformations going on, this was just the kick in the ass that I needed to make some serious changes to our overly dark and slightly drab master bedroom.
I started here with this mood board, and a sort of to-do list. Meaning, some to-dos, and some possibly/maybe to-dos.
I don’t know about you guys, but I think winter has officially arrived in Wyoming. It’s always kind of sad when the time changes and we say goodbye to daylight after work for approximately the next 4 or so months. It also started raining this afternoon, and the rain is supposed to turn to snow overnight. So yeah. I think our long beautiful fall days (which we were spoiled with this year) are over.
On the bright side, it’s getting to be perfect weather for cuddling up! And our bedroom is looking super cozy these days, since we’re now 5 weeks in to our One Room Challenge bedroom makeover. Spoiler alert: Reagan likes it too.
Ok folks, it’s week 4 of the One Room Challenge, and we are hanging in there! If you’re not up to speed, I’ve got 6 weeks to completely re-do one room (I chose our “master” bedroom), and am joining a bunch of other crazy and talented bloggers over at Calling it Home by sharing my progress each week. You can catch up on my progress with week 1 here, week 2 here, and week 3 here.
So, you know I am all about neutrals with this project. I’ve been going for this white/gray/cream palette, but I’m also obsessing over rose gold accents. I feel like rose gold is the best thing to happen since Breaking Bad. Or sliced bread. Whatever you’re into.
If you’ve been following along, you know I made a last-minute decision to participate in Linda at Calling it Home’s One Room Challenge this fall, and give our bedroom a little makeover. I’ve added a few to-dos to my list along the way, and I thought the DIY headboard that we completed this week was worth sharing on its own!
