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.

One Room Challenge | Week 2: Prep & Mood Board

Same old same old over here for Week 2 of the One Room Challenge. I did a lot of thinking on which direction to take the space. I started prepping the room to paint and moved most everything out of it. The biggest feat I accomplished was cranking out a mood board. I would bet one million dollars that it's going to change before the end of the 6 weeks, but hey it's a good start.

If you missed the Week 1 befores (you're honestly not missing anything but a messy room), you can look at them till your heart's content. If you're still reading and still confused about what the One Room Challenge is, take 5 minutes to puruse their website... then come check out this mood baord.

One Room Challenge | Week 1: Home Office Befores & Plans

The first week of April means it’s the beginning of a 6 week, unlimited budget, one room transformation challenge. If you’re new around here or new to the One Room Challenge - first of all welcome to my sliver of the big wonderful internet world - but mostly the One Room Challenge is a 6 week event where a bunch of bloggers and instagram’mers encourage each other to renovate an entire space. That’s all! It’s much harder than it sounds, those 6 weeks creep up on you almost overnight.



My second time doing the One Room Challenge was the fall 2017 round. I had just completed the laundry room in the spring round and was just getting started on my DIY skills. I honestly had no idea what I was doing and didn’t know what my style was (I still really don’t), but it turned out okay. All that to say, I’m re-doing the office! Well, kind of. I’m turning it into an office/guest room.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 5: Tool Closet Reveal

This reveal is probably, most likely more satisfying to me than it is to you. After living with a mess for 2 years, I finally have a space I can work from with a clear mind. Don't get me wrong though, I'm still one of those people that can tell you where every single thing is in that mess - but it was not conducive to spurring on my creative juices. If you're this far in and have no idea what I'm talking about, head on over to Erin's site about why she created the $100 Room Challenge. I hate writing intros as much as you hate reading them, so let's do this.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 4: The Shelves are Built!

I know most people I come across hate painting. I absolutely love it. All the prep work, the dry time, I love it all. I love the feeling that I can go to the store and get a $30 can of paint that will completely change a space. To top it off, I didn't have to spend $1 on this paint job. I used the leftover paint from our master bedroom remodel, a custom mix of Behr's Snow Fall.

January Cure | Week 3

I had a three day weekend this week, and an extra long weekend means extra projects to fit into the schedule.This week of the January Cure was filled with cleaning and checking off those small tasks that always get put off.  It's only 3/4th's of the way through the month and I feel like I've already done a million projects - will I be burned out by the end? I guess we'll find out.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 3: Empty Closet (and I Picked a Paint!)

Not much happened this weekend for the $100 Room Challenge. I was able to clean out all the tools and supplies, which is way more than I thought it would be, and find some paint to use on the walls. Let's jump in to the extremely short and unsatisfying post.
