One Room Challenge // Week 4
Today is week 4 of the One Room Challenge and things are progressing sloooowly over here. But I did get something done that I’m pretty happy with!
But first, thank you so much for all the input on color vs. neutral on the shelves in the comments. Much like I was hoping, everyone seemed to be in favor of color. And when Linda reminded me that it is just paint and I can always paint over it, I was convinced.
I picked up a few sample pots at Lowe’s. They were on sale for $0.98 each so I got a few. I am loving green at the moment and I picked up samples of three (only slightly different) greens.
And a pot of purple.
I really like the green, but I like the purple a lot too and it reads a bit more neutral which I like. Ben really prefers the purple, so that makes the choice easy – purple it is.
I wanted to add a chalk board and remembered that I had this sitting in storage, it was given to me by someone who was moving and wanted to get rid of it. It had a few nicks in it that I filled with wood filler, and I coated it with two coats of chalkboard paint. Since it was a small and super quick project I decided to spray paint inside with the windows open. I hate fumes, but thankfully they dissipated fairly quickly with the windows open. (It was pretty cold, but no pain no gain right?)
And as always, be sure to check out fellow One Room Challenge bloggers, I LOVE seeing the progress on their rooms each week! They have great ideas!
