$100 Room Challenge | Week 2 : Exterior Paint Mockup

It's Week 2 of the $100 Room Challenge! Week 1's are always the befores while Week 2's are my planning week. This week my only goal was to decide on a color to paint the exterior. To do that I did some mockups in Photoshop and finally settled on this nice deep, cool brown.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 1: The Shed Befores

I was on the fence about participating in this round of the $100 Room Challenge just because this September is so busy, but knew that I really didn't want to miss out on the all the fun. I went back and forth about which space to tackle as per the norm. We are trying to get grass to grow in the back yard this year and the old red shed right in the middle is a huge eye sore— so that's what I chose!

Surprisingly this is my 6th $100 Room Challenge! So far I've tackled the tool closet, the full bathroom, the hall closet, the carport, and the half bathroom.

DIY No-Sew Roll Up Shades

We finished our guest room reveal for the Spring 2019 One Room Challenge a few weeks ago and ever since then I've been flooded with requests for a tutorial on the DIY roll up shades I made. They are super easy and since I had drop cloths on hand, it was a great project for the budget. If you can use scissors, you can do this DIY — trust me.

One Room Challenge | Week 6: Modern Guest Room Reveal

And as quickly as it came, it's ended! Week 6 of the One Room Challenge has come and gone and now it's time for the reveal! I know you're here for the photos so I'll keep it short and sweet, but just know that I was booking it Monday and Tuesday evenings to get this room finished and ready for the shoot. I cut it close (it's 10:43pm) but it's here!

One Room Challenge | Week 5: Fan & Finished Closet

There should be a word or a phrase that describes how times moves faster the closet you get to a deadline. We're in week 5 of the One Room Challenge and everyone is feeling the crunch. We had out of town visitors last week/weekend (and obviously I have to spend every waking moment with my baby nephew because he's my buddy) so I only got a few of the things I had planned done. If you've missed the previous weeks posts you can catch up below.

One Room Challenge | Week 4: Installed Closet

The fourth week of the One Room Challenge has come and gone and I am one (tiny) step closer to a finished room. Since I took the photos on Monday, I've completely finished painting the shelves and rods, but in this post some of them are still unpainted.

One Room Challenge | Week 3: Final Paint Color

Last week was WayDay and I mentioned that I took advantage of the sale and scooped up the rug and leather desk chair. Yesterday (Wednesday) the FedEx guy showed up at my door and delivered the chair. I'm hoping by the time you read this post he will have returned with the rug. Also this past week I was able to prime the walls (more on why I primed below) and put up the final color.
