One Room Challenge - Ellery's Granny Chic Bedroom - Week 3

Its time for One Room Challenge Week 3 check- in

I am super happy with the progress I have made in the last couple days!

If you missed what this is all about you can play catch up here:

One Room Challenge - Week 2 : Progress

I didn't get any time to work on the room over the weekend, since we were traveling for Army and then I needed a couple days to recover from the car ride (being 33 weeks pregnant in the car for 7 hours is no bueno!), but by yesterday I had my energy back and I set to work!

One of the biggest projects that I needed to tackle was the vintage headboard.
I bought it forever ago and I even tried to sell it in our last yard sale, but the little sucker was meant to be part of this room.

Only problem was the fabric needed to go...

I actually really liked the hounds tooth when I recovered it myself three or four years ago. It just wasn't fitting the #grannychic theme.

I said good bye to the first layer and that's when I remembered I was lazy the last time I recovered it and had a whole other layer of fabric to get through...

Lesson learned?
Don't take short cuts...

Removing staples on headboard

If you follow me on Instagram (@averielaneblog), you saw how much fun I was having last night... #staplesfordays

I survived it much to my relief! 

Do you see those little specks of blue fabric? That was the original blue velvet that I kick my self for removing in the first place... sad face!

So today I will be in upholstry mode and I plan to bring back the tufts so I have a little shopping to do as well. 

I'm also trying to convince my husband to help me paint the room this weekend... might be some bribery involved.

stay tuned!!
