One Room Challenge | Week 3: Paint Swatches

I could look at paint colors for an infinite amount of time. Each one is so unique and has so many different colors within it. This week I went to Home Depot and started my search for the perfect shade for our master. I can make an argument for each one of the paint swatches and why each one is the best color for this space.  Nonetheless, five colors entered and only one can survive. Welcome to Week 3 of the One Room Challenge.

One Room Challenge | Week 2: The Mood Board

The One Room Challenge Week 2 was a bit crazy in the Jones household. About 3 weeks ago our sink and shower stopped working, so we decided to pull the trigger on replacing all the galvanized plumbing with PVC. It was past time to do it we really were just waiting until we had the money anyways. We scheduled it and he quoted us with a day and a half to complete the job. No big deal, we’d just stay with my parents. Long story short he got in there and found more wrong than he thought and the job took from Friday morning until Monday evening... so I lost all weekend to do anything in our master. But luckily a mood board can be done on my laptop, remotely, and with mojitos in hand.

One Room Challenge | Week 1: The Master Befores & Plans

September, October, and November are arguably busier than April, May, and June for us. September I do the $100 Room Challenge (check out the full bathroom reveal if you haven't yet) and  head straight in to the October/November One Room Challenge, plus all the major holidays and family get togethers. I thought I had resigned to not doing the ORC this fall, but here I am at 10 o'clock on Wednesday night getting on the band wagon again. It really gives me the motivation and focus to complete an entire space instead of doing a little here and a little there.

If you're not familiar with the One Room Challenge, bloggers (and Instagramers this year!) have 6 weeks and an unlimited budget to transform an entire space. It spans two months, which means I'm usually working with a $400 budget ($200 a month).  For the Spring challenge I did our guest room that also functions as my closet and last fall our home office had a massive face lift. This round I'm finally going to give some attention to our master bedroom.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 4: The Full Bathroom Reveal

Every reveal day is like Christmas. I get to compare where a space started out to where it is today. Today I get to share our bathroom renovation we complete for just (90¢ over) $100 in 4 short weeks. One of those weeks I spent out of town so it really was only 3 weeks!

$100 Room Challenge | Week 3: Painting the Walls White

Week 3 of the $100 Room Challenge is not a super exciting post for us, so bear with me. I painted the white walls... white. Also all the prep that comes with painting like caulking, spackling, and sanding - which if you've ever done a painting project you know a good paint job is made up of 90% good prep job. If you haven't seen the past few weeks of this challenge you can catch up below.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 2: Refreshing the Hex Tile

September is hurricane season and in Georgia we are preparing for the backlash of Florence. Everyone is headed in-land from the coast and traffic patterns are crazy. The second week of the $100 Room Challenge is usually pretty non-eventful for me. I'm still in the undecided planning zone still wondering which direction to take the space. This week I turned my attention to our 60 year old matte black hex tile floor.

Utilizing the Useless Space Above the Cabinets

Do you have an awkward empty space above your cabinets? Once we installed this side of the kitchen when there was 0 cabinets there before, we totally had one of those spaces. It nagged at me for 2 years and I finally found a way to utilize all that dead space. I just had to build it myself.
