ONE ROOM CHALLENGE: WEEK 2!

April 19, 2019

 

I like to think of week 2 as a "foundation" week. I got the walls prepped and painted, ordered my decor, and got a board and batten supply list ready. In other words, week 2 was boring. 

 

Boring, but necessary!

 

The walls are painted an off white with a peachy tint. (It looks more pink in photos than it is in real life!) I know it looks a little odd paired with those creamy/peachy floors, but don't fret; I've got big plans for those floors. That sounded a bit ominous. Don't worry, no harm will come to them. When ORC is over, I'm just planning on painting them to mimic Cement Tile. kind of like this: 

 

I haven't looked into the process a ton, but I do know the cost to paint them will exceed my ORC budget, so this is a project I'm saving for later. 

 

Even with the monochromatic wall and floor situation, the room is light-years better than it was before. Especially considering all the exciting details that are coming soon! Here's a quick reminder of the "before": 

Side note, it's easy to get caught up in "Improve Everything Mode" that you forget to appreciate where you are in the process.

Is this room everything I hoped it would be yet? No.

Do I have exciting plans that involve moving plumbing and replacing the vanity? Yes. 

But I refuse to let my excitement for what could be, steal the fun of what is right now. 

 Alright, now back to our regularly scheduled program. I ordered these sweet little planters last week and planned in advance that they'd hang in that awkward corner there: 

Well, the other day as I was painting I looked up, and there on the ceiling was a hook, raring to go! 

 

Either it's fate, or my subconscious noted the hook previously. Regardless, it's a win! 

 

Next week, we get down to brass tacks on that board and batten! I'll share the process in my stories and in a post next Friday, so keep in touch!
