We are back for week 2 of the One Room Challenge, and I’m happy to report I’m still hanging in there. We got a few things done over the weekend which I’m glad because I almost thought this post would not happen, but here we are. We refinished our floors ! They look much better than before but I know this is just temporary as we are getting new floors sometime next year. I also painted the walls Simply White by Benjamin Moore but now I’m not sure I like it all that much. After the paint went up I decided that the walls were too plain so I will be adding picture frame molding to the walls. I couldn’t find a wallpaper I loved that wouldn’t make the room feel small I’m thinking about painting it another color maybe Smoke by Benjamin Moore. If I chose that route I will be painting the molding that color as well.I thought white would make the space feel bigger but in reality it just made it feel very sterile and makes me feel like I’m standing in a white box. My brother didn’t even notice we painted he thought it was just primer so that didn’t help either lol. I also have a habit of doubting my own vision so this could just be a case of that. Here is my Mood board If you follow me on Instagram you’ll see that I’m also between a few color options on this mood board but, for the most this is the idea.
We need to redo this little corner as you can see as well as the molding around the entry because you can tell there used to be a door there and I don’t want that.
To Do List:
- Add upper moldings
- fix hole on the floor and the missing molding on the wall
- add molding to the walls
- change paint color
- replace door casing
Don’t forget to check out all the other amazing guest participants over at the One Room Challenge and I will see you back here next week.
