One Room Challenge- Glamily Room-Week 2


It’s week two. That is exciting and scary all at the same time. This week I mostly did a lot of brainstorming and shopping. I want this to be a room that my family can enjoy for many years to come. These are big decisions and I am not good at making them. Does anyone else struggle with that? Please tell me that I’m not alone. The biggest decision that I made is that I have to choose the sectional before I can move forward with paint and any other choices. So I decided that I have to make a decision. Ironic.

I have been looking online and have a few sectionals picked out.  I am waiting for my husband to have time to go shopping with me. I’m going to drag my two teenage boys along too because I really want everyone to love it. I can’t buy it online without being able to see it and feel it. I just can’t do it.

As wives, smart wives that is, we know how to butter the menfolk up. So I made a deal with my husband to clean the garage before we did any painting. UGH!!!!! It’s a disaster in there. Insert…eye rolling and sighing. The things that I agree to just to get some painting done!!! It will be nice to actually find the paint brushes, so I will quit complaining!

Let’s get to the fun stuff….

Inspiration Pics For The Glamily Room:

I love how the white curtains lighten up the dramatic black walls here.

Although this is a bedroom, this is what I will do if I change my mind on all the walls being black. I will paint the other two walls white with white curtain panels.

I am crazy about these dark walls paired with the light couch and vintage art

My To Do List:

  • Pick out and purchase sectional, rug, and ottoman
  • Sell existing furniture
  • Paint
  • Install new shades and curtains
  • Choose new lighting (I have a few in mind from Lamps Plus)
  • Hang gallery wall around TV
  • Hang mirrors above sofa
  • Art above piano

  1. Jessica I adore the direction that your room is headed towards! You did SO much better than I did in my room this week.

    I would love for you to share this post at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. I think our readers would really enjoy it!

    Good luck in the upcoming week!

  2. Oh Jess! I can’t wait to see your black walls! It’s going to be beautiful!

  3. Oh, I am super excited about this room! That last inspiration pic is so gorgeous. I can’t wait to see the black walls, I hope you do all of them! Once all of your other pieces are in the room it won’t feel too dark. I was this close to doing our master instead of our bathroom and your plan has so many similarities to what I want to do in that room. I’ll be watching for more inspiration!

  4. Your ability to envision a look before it is even born makes you a true artist! It would have never occurred to me to paint a wall black (even though I use black a lot in decorating). I can’t wait to see the final product!

    1. I am thrilled to see Stosie come through my notifications! That is such a nice compliment sis. Thank you!! We’ll see if I can pull this off!! Love you and miss you!!!

  5. Oh my goodness I love the black walls!! I’m the same way when it comes to buying furniture.
