A Big Exterior Update! Painting Our Eaves and Windows Black

Since we moved in this house 4 years ago one big thing on my to-do list is repaint the eaves. Last year we replaced the grey roof with this beautiful black one I started thinking about tackling the eaves. I got stalled with choosing a color and then it was too cold out and then I was too pregnant. Fast forward to July and I finally started gathering my energy to start this project!

$100 Room Challenge | Week 5: Organized Modern Shed Reveal

 I can't believe my 8th (!!!) $100 Room Challenge is already over! It took me three weeks to really get going on this project but once I started painting it really began to come together. In just 5 weeks we went from dingy and brown to white and bright! Before you couldn't even see the floor because it was covered in stuff, now the floor is almost bare. So much room for activities! I actually had so much room from adding the pegboard wall that I brought in stuff from my tool closet in the house.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 4: Installing the Peg Board Wall

These weeks are really flying by! It's been a full 4th progress week for me, I installed the pegboard wall, painted the floors, finished painting the walls and ceiling, and dropped a nap. Only one more week until the reveal! Let's jump right into some progress pictures.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 3: Painting, Painting, Painting

There's nothing like how time flies when you're doing a project on a deadline! This week went by crazy fast for me, so I made just a little progress on the shed. Progress is progress! Week 3 and I've been painting all weekend. To be fair, I got really distracted with moving dressers around in the house which turned into hanging our tv which turned into running the cables through the wall, so I put this project on the back burner for a minute but I've hit a stall waiting for some Amazon boxes and I got some more painting done in the shed.

Installing Peel & Stick Faux-Tile in the Kitchen

There are not many things you want to do when you're 6 months pregnant (back in January), but I had just started feeling better from my first and second trimester sickness and wanted to check a few things off my to-do list before baby got here. One task was to tile the backsplash in the kitchen. I was planning to use real tile, but when I decided I wanted to also do the door wall I started getting major scope creep. I didn't have the budget, time, or energy to tile that much so when I came across this great subway looking peel and stick tile, I instantly bought some to try!

$100 Room Challenge | Week 2: Cleaning & Painting the Shed Interior

Week 2 of the $100 Room Challenge and we are in full swing reno mode! Most of this week I spent cleaning out most of the shed. I removed a thousand random nails from every corner imaginable and shop-vac'ed all of the cobwebs.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 1: The Shed Interior Befores

Wait, is it September already? It seems like January was simultaneously yesterday and 10 years ago. I'm not sure if the time warp is because of being first time parents or from all the craziness going on in the world right now. Either way, I need a outlet to focus my creative juices on. The $100 Room Challenge fall round came at the perfect time. Last year I focused on the exterior of the backyard shed, because I was 6 weeks pregnant I didn't get to the interior so I'm taking it on this year!
