One Room Challenge | Powder Room | REVEAL

Good-day Ladies & Gentlemen!  Today is the day and I am OVER the MOON excited to share with you the final reveal of our powder room.  What was once a dark greenish brown color, is now bright and airy and has visual interest by way of accessories and actually putting stuff on the walls!  I…

One Room Challenge – Powder Room – Week 6

The real fun begins…FINALLY!   I pulled off all the painters tape this week.  YAY!  FYI after several coats of paint man that was a pain!  I had to pull out the tweezers to get it out of the paint.  Little strips were ripping off…it was loads of fun….*sigh*   It feels so good to…

One Room Challenge – Powder Room – Week 5

Boy am I glad we have an extra week!  Before Linda decided to add the extra week (due to all the natural disasters these past few weeks causing delays for people) we would have been doing final reveals NEXT WEEK!  Man, I’d be in trouble.   But as it stands, I think I’m going to…

One Room Challenge – Powder Room – Week 4

Okay – now I’m freaking out.  So I completely underestimated how painful it was going to be to paint this room.   It’s not that I can’t do it.  But when I only have a few hours to devote to it (kids are in school) and I’m not able to get as much accomplished within…

One Room Challenge – Powder Room – Week 3

Things are happening!   I am stoked to finally stay that.  After 2 weeks of mostly just thinking about my project, I finally got some things purchased and paint onto the walls!   First, we had to take care of all the nail holes.  I can’t remember the brand right off hand, but it goes…

One Room Challenge – Powder Room – Week 2

Don’t be fooled!  That image is a digital test of the color I plan to use which we already have on hand.  It’s called PPG Sky Diving.   Not much to share this week.  I don’t think I stated it before but this month of October is probably the WORST month for me to try…

One Room Challenge – Powder Room – Week 1

Hi All!   Man, it feels good to be back on my blog.  As you may know, I’ve really been focused on YouTube this year, and not so much on this blog.  However, I decided to participate in something that I’m stoked about and it requires me to get back to my blog.   Win-Win!…

Paint with Me – Front Door

Hi Friends,   Finally…whew!  Here’s my new front door.  What do you think? First up – I did ask you all for your opinion when choosing paint colors.  And I want to be honest with you.  I did not choose the one you all picked!  I was truly interested in your opinion and I’m not surprised by what…

Return to the Paper Planner

I’m going to start using a paper planner again.  The only time I’ve really used a planner was while I was in school to keep track of assignments and work schedule.   Those of you reading this probably fall into one of the following two camps: Why?  Don’t you have a smart phone?  You know…

Front Door Color – poll!

Okay I’d like to know what others think!  I desperately need to paint the front door and I really want to do a blue.  Below is a poll showing several options.  Please let me know your thoughts by participating in the poll.  I’ve also included a wider shot photo at the bottom so you can…
