Tween Boys Bedroom – ORC | Week 5

A bit of this – a bit of that

I’m SO excited to be part of the One Room Challenge again.  A huge thanks to Linda Weinstein of Calling It Home for organizing this bi-annual design challenge. The One Room Challenge is where design|bloggers around the world transform one space in their homes over 6 weeks.

This time around I decided to makeover our tween son’s bedroom because we moved into our house over a year ago and his room hasn’t been decorated.  In fact it was my work room until the One Room Challenge started!.

This week I am nervously waiting for two products to be shipped from the U.S. hoping they will be here in time for the finale.  Thanks goodness we have been given another week extension due to all the natural disasters that have occurred in the Southern States these past few months.  It has effected product deliveries and work schedules.  I didn’t think I would have an issue up here in Toronto Canada but apparently I was wrong.

I’m waiting for my street poster and hammocks.  My poster is my inspiration piece so it REALLY needs to get here before the finish!  The hammocks are another focal point so they need to show up on time also!

In the meantime, we’re finishing painting the room.

We bought the hardwood flooring.  Who knew that hardwood flooring was so heavy!!!  I’m not actually pushing it.  I was trying though…

This week I will be painting the above Ikea laminate dresser and give it an industrial feel to it.

Please check back next week and see the progress to date!

This is my forth time taking on the challenge.  The first time I redesigned our entryway.  The second time was our master bedroom including adding on a master en-suite and the third time was our family room.
