One Room Challenge Week One: Tween Bedroom Before

Woohoo! I am so thrilled to be participating in the One Room Challenge this fall and I’m happy to announce I will be making over my daughter’s room! I have wanted to join the ORC in the past, but the timing never seemed right. However, now that we have the entire Country House to makeover, I have plenty of spaces to work on. By the way, if you are new to Elizabeth Joan Designs, WELCOME! I’m Erin, the decor lovin’ girl behind the blog.

ABOUT THE ONE ROOM CHALLENGE

The One Room Challenge (ORC) is a semi-annual event hosted by Calling It Home. Twenty amazing designers are featured and have just 6 weeks to makeover a room. In addition, anyone with a blog (i.e. little ol’ design/DIY bloggers like me) can link up their own transformations. There will be tons of inspiration and beautiful spaces to check out, so stick around!

Since we’ve moved into our quaint little home in the country, we’ve primarily focused on simple curb appeal type updates. But now it is time to get working on the interiors of this place. One of our first priorities is to get our kids’ rooms overhauled and since our daughter is the oldest, she gets first dibs.

In our City House, both our daughter (11) and son (5) opted to share a bedroom so that they could also have a playroom. It was fun trying to figure out how to combine both kids’ styles to create a cohesive shared space.

Let’s check out where I will be starting at in my daughter’s new bedroom…

EEK!

There is so much to do in here! As you can see, the carpet is really bad and this room definitely needs paint. All of the furniture in the room was just kind of thrown in when we moved, since most of stuff from the kids’ shared bedroom is now residing in our little guy’s room.  So, that means that this room is getting a complete overhaul.  It will definitely be a lot of work, but I’m sure that our daughter will love the final result.

If you love seeing a room transformed, then you should definitely check back next week to see our plans for this space!

    I love shared bedrooms. :) Can’t wait to see what you do, but I understand wanting to focus on the outside first. We’ve been doing the opposite in our new home and putting off the exterior until the spring!

    Is so nice that you are designing something that will be simple but have the touches of style to make it look unique. I am the same way I keep it simple and stand out, which is very challenging to create something stylish. I love the white dresser with the pretty accessories.
