The Challenge is on! October 2, 2013 By Mary Ann Pickett Leave a Comment The One Room Challenge is a great way to get a decorating project accomplished in six weeks! Our son, Tommy is away at college. This is his room below. It’s not bad…but it’s not exactly decorated… at least not like our daughter’s room after the last One Room Challenge… Even my friend, Debbie, said her bathroom “Tommy’s room needs some love, like Alie’s.” When we moved into our renovated beach cottage three years ago, his room was decorated with leftovers and “hand me downs.” My goals for this room are to make it: • comfortable • somewhat masculine • classic, but with a modern country vibe … and to conserve money while doing it. It bothers me that I didn’t buy longer curtainsand hang them higher …the grass shades are fine though. Here’s some inspiration… We bought this vintage antique travel poster when we lived in Paris twelve years ago (and Tommy was in second and third grades). I want to reframe this (the frame is cracked and I’d like non-glare glass). Some of the artwork that used to be in Tommy’s room is here now… So, his walls are pretty bare. I’m looking forward to seeing what these bloggers accomplish in the next six weeks!!!
