We are approaching week 3 of the One Room Challenge teen bedroom makeover and it’s official, I am one tired lady. Unfortunately, there isn’t much time to snooze since there is a boat load of work left to be done in the room. This past week, I worked on furniture and again on the feature wall (hand painted sharks teeth). I have 200 teeth down and only 400 to go! Who wants to come over and keep me company? I promise I won’t keep you more than 20 or so hours. You have time right?
I did get a lot done but I’m advoiding the bottom part of the wall. I don’t have any particular reason other than, It is really awkward to paint lying on the floor! But I am committed so I will suck it up and do it sooner or later. The rest of the wall is coming along. However, to keep myself from going completely stir crazy, I took a break and moved onto a few of the other projects. I was able to knock out some of the bedroom pieces this week. Remember the lack luster bedroom set I showed you last week? Here is the nightstand to refresh your memory. Ooooh can I have a dingy 1960’s bedroom set? – said no teenage boy ever.
So I hauled the headboard, dresser and nightstand into the garage and got to work. Well actually, I told Mr. Paint Yourself a Smile to bring it to the garage but that is basically the same thing right?
I was able to get the dresser and night stand done. The dresser and Headboard are still in the garage but as soon as I bring them in, I will post a tutorial for you. You will want to come back for the full tutorial because I think you will like it. Plus, it may be the only time I talk about stripping and bedroom furniture in a blog story!
The pieces turned out great and I can’t wait to show you the whole set. Now I can cross furniture off the list. What list you ask? Check out my overwhelming DIY room project list (here)
On that note, I am declaring week 2 complete; bring on week 3! but first I need a nap. zzzzzzzzz
