    One Room Challenge Week Two: Mood Board/Projects

    It’s the 2nd week of the One Room Challenge! First of all, I want to thank everyone who stopped by and commented on my Tween Bedroom post last week. As one of my friends said, we will be starting with a blank canvas and she is so right! However, today, I wanted to share the Mood Board/Projects for the room.

    If you missed week one, we chose to makeover our tween daughter’s bedroom for this challenge. Since we’ve been mostly focused on simple curb appeal updates (and a few mechanical updates as well) at the Country House, this will be the first space we really tackle inside.

    Here’s what we’ve come up with…

    After we put our heads together, my daughter and I came up with a fun and girly mood board that fit the color and style she wanted on a budget we could afford. (She’s always loved pink and gray rooms, even though her favorite color is purple.)

    Doesn’t this combo look so fun?! We’ve ordered most of the items and they should be delivered this week.

    As far as projects go, we have several planned, including:

    • Remove old carpet and replace flooring
    • Paint walls, trim, & doors
    • Replace old electrical plates, outlets, and switches
    • Add new lighting
    • Install window coverings
    • Create a workspace that can also double as clothes storage
    • Bring in color and textures with accessories
    • Organize craft & art supplies, books, toys, and clothing

    So far, we’ve pulled everything out of the room, including the carpet and started on some of the big projects. (I will be sharing those next week!) It is so fun to see this vision coming to life and my daughter is excited to have a fresh new space!

    Follow along with us!

    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.



    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…

    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!
