ORC Week 2 – A Few Purchases

It’s week 2 of the One Room Challenge and as I suspected, I don’t have much progress to show today. We got back from Italy Saturday night, so I was pretty worthless the rest of the weekend and the first few days this week. Seriously, I haven’t made it past 8:30 p.m. since I’ve been back. Plus I have so much good stuff on my DVR to watch! Anyway, last week I shared my mood board and plans for the guest bedroom makeover. 

Luckily I did plan ahead a bit, so I actually have something to show you today. I’ve already bought the new bedding, shams, and sheets for the room. It’s all from Kohl’s and I love it, but VERY long story short, I’ll never shop there again. I battled their customer service for a couple weeks and I’m still pissed enough that I’ve vowed to never spend another dollar online or in stores.

I also bought new curtains for the room. They’re from Target, but I had to order them online. They only carry the 84” panels in store, but I needed longer ones from this room.  I ordered them during a Buy 1, Get 1 40%-off sale, plus additional 10%-off so I got a great deal on the pair. I love the fringe detail!

I need to paint the room before I add any of those pieces, so that’s my goal this weekend. I still need to pick a paint color and we all know how hard it is to decide on a gray. There are so many options! At least this room will be easier to paint than my master bedroom!
So, I don’t have much progress to show on my to-do list this week, but here it is:

Paint walls
Buy new bedding and pillows
Paint nightstands
Buy/hang curtains
Paint dresser
Hang artwork
Finishing touches/accessories

  1. Love the plan and all the feminine touches! Sorry to hear about your bad experience with Kohl's. I've never had trouble with them, but now I'm going to be wary. Absolutely love the curtains--they are perfect!
