This past week was mostly spent hunting down mirrors for the gallery wall.  I found two good vintage options to go along with a couple mirrors that I already had.  The hunt continues for more mirrors!

The rug decision was also made finally.  So, there's no more waffling since the order is already on its way!  Finalizing the furniture, lighting, and textiles are on tap for this week...

Here is where I'm at with this makeover:

  • Paint entire room ✔
  • Closet door DIY treatment - in process
  • Replace ceiling fan with light fixture - this weekend?!
  • Run any necessary electrical for electronic components & study nook
  • Task/accent lighting - in process
  • Area rug ✔
  • Bedroom/lounge furniture - in process
  • Textiles for lounge area - pillows, blankets
  • Small desk & chair for study nook - in process
  • Accent furniture - side table, pouf
  • Gallery wall - mirrors, possibly art - in process
  • Console table for media wall - may use existing
  • Mount television



  1. You're design board is amazing and I'm sure it's all going to come together impeccably!!!

    1. Thank you, Karrie! Saw your "stories". Hope you're having an amazing time! :)

  2. Oh I love the checklist - I need to do that too. That light fixture is amazing - can't wait to see it up!

    1. Thank you! I wish I could check off more items on that list. :)

  3. Exciting on the rug decision!! I can't wait to see how you put your gallery wall together Carol. This space is going to be gorgeous when you're done with it!

    1. The rug arrived, and I think I have enough for the gallery wall of mirrors, so I'm anxious to see everything installed! But I'm still making a mess in there, so it'll have to wait a little longer. :)

  4. oh my gosh, that daybed has been on my wishlist for like two years! I hope you get that!!

    1. I will be installing a frameless "daybed" concept, but not that exact one. :) Get it!!!

  5. I'm loving your inspiration pic for the mirrors. I can't wait to see the final results.

    1. Thank you, Lisa! Planning to install the gallery wall of mirrors this weekend. :)
