Hello and welcome to Week 5 of the One Room Challenge!
If you missed my previous posts, you can catch up on the project here:
Can you ever have a project and not have some sort of snafu?
I ran into a minor problem on two squares. After painting the inner square edges with a brush – those areas that a roller just can’t reach – then using the roller for the main interior of the square, some paint started “lifting” from the wall as I rolled over it. No matter how many coats, I knew it would looked jacked up. Has this ever happened to you? Because this was a first for me.
So apparently, I was rolling back over the freshly applied paint after it already had enough time to start to “set up”. It couldn’t have been more than two minutes, but enough time to mess up two squares! So – two squares had to go through extensive sanding, spackling, sanding again and then fresh coats of paint. You would never know which two were jacked, haha!
This is what the small powder room looked like last week:
Are you ready for what it looks like finished? Here’s what my small powder room looks like today:
From a decorative standpoint, I just love how wainscoting gives a room more dimension! And with the square wainscoting, I’ve infused a modern element to the space.
Each week as we get closer to the reveal, I start thinking more and more about some of the ‘extra’ little details and what I should place on the floating shelves.
I thank God every day for the many blessings in my life, so I thought it would be fitting to add a little reminder to this space – a space that many friends and family will use.
Right away, I thought of the beautiful “grateful” lettering design by Aedriel Moxley (@aedriel).
Aedriel offers this design as a free download on her site here, so you can have one too!
Next week I’ll be staining + mounting the floating shelves and most likely installing the new light fixture. See ya next week!
