Welcome back to the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home! I cannot believe how fast 3 weeks has gone by! Half way there… aka feeling the pressure, but loving the motivation having a deadline gives me! If you’re stopping by for the first time, here’s a recap of Week 1 and Week 2.
Last week we had taken off the baseboard tiles and were prepping the existing vanity.
This week I’m struggling, because decision making is not always my strong suit. I’m hoping to not have to redo any part of the room more than once, so every decision counts!
First off, we have the paint dilemma. We have an awesome friend who lives just around the corner who lent us her paint samples when we moved in, and I had quite the collection myself. So, when I went downstairs to look for a “couple” of neutrals to try out in the room, this is what I ended up with…
Yes, that is TEN different samples of grays and beiges. I’d name them all, but I thought it would be fun to see what you think without knowing the name! (Half of them are Pinterest approved and half of them are not as popular). Straight color instead of being swayed by names. Kind of a science experiment. Come to think of it, I never loved science. Maybe if my teacher used examples that involved paint colors I would have liked it more : ) I think I have a favorite (or 3), but would love any suggestions!
Next up was choosing a new baseboard to replace the tile. When visiting Home Depot, I literally had 1,000 or more options by doubling or tripling up different trims, but in the end I chose something more simple. We couldn’t use what’s in the rest of the house because it was not tall enough to cover the damage the old tile had done, so I picked a larger version with a bit more detail on the top. It reminded me of what you’d see in an old house which is what sold me.
It’s currently being painted in the garage, so here’s a few shots of it pre-install!
I like that it blends in, but still stands out. Make sense? Just pretend even if it doesn’t to make me feel better : P t can’t wait to get it up!
Last but not least, is the vanity. I’ve narrowed it down to painting the entire thing in Benjamin Moore’s Cloud White, or painting only the inside and staining the frame and doors in Minwax’s Weathered Oak.
Other than making all of these decisions, we’re plugging away at the room! I’d love to share more, but I’ll leave that for next week : ) We’re starting on the closet right now, and can’t wait to share that progress next week!
So what do you think… paint color suggestion? Feeling the white or stain for the vanity? Have troubles making decisions just like me? Maybe I’ll grab a glass of wine and think about it a little longer : ) Till next Thursday!
