Welcome back to week 3 of the One Room Challenge. Thank you all so much for your input about my painted mantel predicament. I’m about 90% sure I will keep it white just like most of you thought. I have noticed though it may be too white. It is more white than the crown molding so I may change the shade of white. So, one problem solved, I think.
If this is your first time here I’d love for you to see the before photos and the mantel color options.
This is my third time joining Linda of Calling it Home for this fun event. I’d love to have you check out my previous two ORC makeovers.
The rest of this past week was spent doing so many different things on many different projects.
I am so pleased with how things are coming along. It is my goal to complete this room makeover as budget friendly as possible. I want to show you what is possible when you don’t have a lot of money to spend for a full room interior design.
I spent time shopping and choosing fabric. The window panels are finished but I still need to recover the ottoman and sew pillows.
I completed my least favorite chore of stripping paint. Instead of buying new tables I completed makeovers on my end table and my grain sack inspired bench.
I have a tutorial about stripping paint HERE.
I couldn’t have planned all of the imperfections in the wood any better. It’s the exact rustic look I was hoping would be under all those layers of paint.
Now I think I have some things to sell that I am moving out of this room. Great way to recover any money I have spent.
