One Room Challenge | Week 3: Middle Room Is Painted

When we first moved in we painted the entire interior Sherwin William's Repose Gray. It really is the perfect gray but I was ready for this room to have something different for a while. For Week 3 of our One Room Challenge the goal was to get the middle room 100% painted and ready to be styled. Well, I'm happy to report we got at least 80% done! It may not seem like much but we had company all weekend and Monday was a holiday.

I prepped the room and Auston painted the entire thing, which really was a beast because of all the brush work needed. I used my favorite white — Behr's Snow Fall in eggshell at 100% increase. The increase may seem like a lot but the regular version is just two drops of umber, increasing it by 100% means there's 4 drops. Not a huge change but it really makes a difference in the warm undertone.

I ordered a lot of products this week and things have already started shipping. We're also making an IKEA run and will get things like the dresser and some odds and ends. I also need to look into possible closet systems that aren't expensive but also a little more sophisticated than the DIY job I did that's currently in there.

In the mean time you can check out the rest of the guest participants on the ORC blog. How is your progress coming?

  1. That white looks so bright and crisp! Love the Elfa system from the Container Store for closets, if you haven't looked into it yet.
