Welcome back for my One Room Challenge Week 2 update! If you missed Week 1, I'm making over our Powder Bath and you can catch up here for all of the before photos. My space is small with an awkward layout and I'm working to freshen up the space from dark and dated to fresh and fabulous!
Since the space is so small, the walls are really going to be the stars of the show. These spaces are inspiring my plan-

Although I adore the Thibaut Tanzania wallpaper in the previous two images, the price tag is not in the budget. I'm planning to follow Pam's lead and DIY my own version for a fraction of the cost. How darling is her foyer?
However, in my small room with 10 ft. ceilings, I didn't want the spots to be totally overwhelming, so I'm planning to break the walls up by adding a chair rail and some moulding.

Finally, there's going to be a surprise pop of color in the room!

I have a plan for the major components in the room, but the lighting, art, and accessories are still up in the air. Whatever ends up in the final reveal will be a surprise for us all. One thing is certain, it will be a little bit traditional, a little bit modern, a little bit glam, and a little bit quirky!
Here's the big picture of where we're headed...

And here's what happened this past week...stripping. Lots and lots of stripping. Wallpaper stripping, that is. ;) You saw the red damask in the before photos, but this lovely forest green and burgundy stripe was underneath that.
And of course, the wall was not properly prepared before the original wallpaper was installed, so as careful as I was the drywall was still damaged in many spots. Boo.
So, the wallpaper is off, but now I'm waiting for my drywall guy to come and patch the bad spots before I can continue. I'm 99% sure I'm going to change the single light fixture to a pair of sconces, too, so that will need to be re-wired before I go much further, too. So, hurry up and wait is the theme this week!
That's is for this week! I'd love to see you on Instagram for updates, you can find me here.
Today I'm linking up at Calling It Home with loads of other guest participants on this 6 week journey to transform a space in their home as well, click here to follow along with them too. And, be sure to check in on the group of featured designers who will be sharing their updates each Wednesday. I have several sweet, uber talented blog friends in this group and will be waiting anxiously each week to check in on their progress!
