One Room Challenge: Week 5

This project was created in a partnership with the One Room Challenge Sponsors!  

All ideas and opinions are my own!

Welcome back friends! The One Room Challenge week 5 is here and so much fun stuff happened this week! After we completed installing all of our Metrie millwork, there was still so much prep work that needed to be done before we could paint. We filled all the nail holes with wood putty, sanded, and sanded some more. We were waiting on a few more pieces to come for the wall so we went ahead and installed our wood floors. This meant that we had to tape those off too to make sure paint didn’t get on the new floors. All of this prep was leaving us feeling like we needed a smoothie break! (Peanut butter chia to be exact)

Once all of the prep work was finished, we were ready to paint, and boy was I ready to paint. I mean, READY, READY! Let’s get this show on the road!

Isn’t painting so satisfying? It is such a quick change in such a short period of time. I decided to paint my walls the same color I am doing on the moulding in the rest of my home, Dunn Edwards: Whisper. This is a nice soft white without too much yellow or blue undertone.

I love once everything is freshly painted and it is time to rip off the tape, this is also very satisfying for me.  Maybe I am a little strange, but I love it! Just look how pretty everything is once we got it all painted. It is even more gorgeous in person, I promise!

What does one do with a pretty room like this? Well, start adding in all the pretty furniture of course! This is my most favorite part (aside from building the furniture).  Seeing all the finishing touches going in makes it worth all the hard work.  Here I am with a piece of my dining table from The Mine that I am starting to put together! It was actually pretty easy. About ten bolts and it was all together.

Gosh, it is so hard, I want to show you more but there is still so much to be done. I will leave you with this little snippet of what I have done so far. Don’t forget to come back next week for the final reveal and all the details on each piece and why I chose each one.

This rug from All Modern couldn’t be anymore perfect for my space! It has all the colors I love, fits my room perfectly and it is very soft under your feet. I am completely obsessed with it and I highly recommend it! It is a match made in heaven with my dining table!

See you next week,

P.S. My pillow fabric from Fabricut came in too!!

Bathroom Round up….Our favorites!

We love the look of a light and bright bathroom, with charming little details. Jo and I always like to start out with a neutral base and build from there so it’s easy to switch out the colorful stuff when you get tired of it…

Here’s a round up of our favorite bathrooms to date with a few sources to boot!

 This Master Bathroom just sings! We love everything about the brass knobs and sconces. Even though the faucets are stainless, you can still mix in some brass, as long as it’s repeated a few times in the room.

Ship lap is our JAM right now! In this bathroom we used 6″ ship lap boards and wrapped it around the entire bathroom.  The gorgeous modern tub is accented by a gold {what else?} chandelier. We found some nice simple towels from Target to keep it light and bright.

The shining favorites in this bathroom are the vintage inspired light in natural brass with grey striped bell shades, the charcoal vanity, and the charming cement tiles. We used grey grout with the cement tiles to keep clean up easy.

Across from the vanity, we pulled out the existing bathtub and installed a brand new shower. We kept it classic with bright white subway tiles and blue pennies for the floor. We used white grout with the pennies to set off the tiles.

The scalloped brass mirror in this guest bath is drool worthy, and we love how it pairs nicely with the charcoal vanity. We used quite a few finishes in there, but it all works together.

How about this shaped back splash in this Master Bath? We dressed this bathroom in all chrome and it just shines! The white vanity is full of doors and drawers for a ton of storage.

This wallpaper is A-Dorable! Especially for the kids of the house, who have a Golden Retriever named Ruby. We paired it with some fun black shaped mirrors and modern light bulb sconces for a look all it’s own.

We kept the adjoining shower light and bright with subway tiles {have we mentioned how much we LOVE  are OBSESSED with subway tiles?}. They are classic and you can find them pretty inexpensively. Nuf said. How about that grey deco tile? It’s modern and classic all in one! We kept entire floor white penny rounds to make the entire bathroom feel like one big room.
