We had too much going on last week to make any progress on the One Room Challenge bedroom makeover (click here to see our first 2 weeks). I did get the walls and most of the ceiling primed, but that was it. This week, however was much different.
Here’s what it looked like a couple weeks ago:
The grooves in the paneling have all been filled so they look like real walls. Everything was sanded and primed and the walls and moulding have been painted (partially). Everything still needs a second coat, and still some cutting-in, but I love the color combination of the light stone walls and the almost-black trim!
I already had a quart of the navy-black in semi-gloss, but after testing it out, I went for satin finish instead.
The ceiling still isn’t painted. ? I was supposed to do that before painting the walls, but I ran out of white paint and the work had to continue.
I was sooo, so happy to paint over all 4 colors that were in the kitchen area with the same color as the walls. And I actually think it’s a pretty cute kitchen now! Too bad it’s in the bedroom and not our actual kitchen.
We’re still trying to figure out a way to minimize the kitchen look and utilize the space for something practical. It turns out kitchen cupboards make horrible clothing storage, and we still don’t have a place to put our clothes.
Still to do:
- Second coat of paint on walls and moulding
- Paint ceiling white
- Paint doors in wall color
- Paint window frames white
- Makeover bed frame
- Makeover night stands
- Replace yellow mini blinds with bamboo (curtains are still back at the other house) 🙁
- Buy dresser/make clothing storage
Totally doable in 2 weeks, right? Click here to see all the other participants in this spring’s One Room Challenge!
