After all my planning and desire to be completed by this week, it seems like this room refresh will truly be a one week room refresh! Most of the items arrived last week and luckily I did clear out the room for the wallpaper installer coming this week. I still need to switch out the ceiling lamp, paint the cabinets, assemble the Ikea cabinets, and hang the drapes. All of this has to be done this week! Unfortunately, we had such a bad winter with snow storms galore and many of the items were delayed in shipping. I’m still waiting on a few decor pieces and the hardware for the cabinets. They are expected to arrive Thursday so it looks like I’ll be finished by Friday. Fingers crossed that all will be okay for my photoshoot this weekend. I always end up having the worst luck with my photo shoots. Rain, gloomy weather, and darkness conveniently occur on many of my photography days.
I did manage to snap a few pictures with my phone after I had cleared out the room. You can now see the full room. We had the drywall placed 3 years ago and the wall to wall carpeting not too long afterward. I’m still on the fence about baseboards, but I’ll see how everything looks after the wallpaper is installed.
Here’s a view of the thrifted cabinets I purchased a few years ago. I scored two of these glass door cabinets for $20! I’m pretty sure they are an older version of the Ikea billy bookcases. I’m planning to paint the inside a bold navy color using Velvet Finishes paint. I can’t wait to see how it looks. I may end up painting the entire cabinet, but we will see.
Stay tuned for the final reveal next week. Here is a better look at how I’m planning to arrange the room! Just a little teaser and honestly some motivation for me to get the room completed. 🙂
Just a heads up that we may end up splitting the reveals into two weeks. The snow storms really effected some of us and they require an additional week to pull everything together. Two Tuesdays of amazing room reveals! More on that next week. In the meantime, I can’t wait to see how my fellow blogging buddies and you have fared this week.
