Hey there Pals,
If you have been following me via this whole.One Room Challenge.procedure … it is Week # 5! Which implies following week is the BIG REVEAL !! And Also if this is your very first time socializing with me … I’m so pleased you are right here! I’m Kristin, I live an enjoyable, disorderly life staying at home with my 3 children while running my E-Design biz,.Postbox Styles., however if we ladies aren’t the supreme multi-taskers than I do not know what!
Speaking of multi-tasking, I’ve been so busy with other individuals’s space remodeling, that my OWN Living room has been seriously lacking some love, for the oh … the last four years we have actually lived right here! Like possibly some of you, it has had plenty of a mix of hand-me downs that work, but it had not been actually a representation people.
However I wished to do something I have never ever done prior to: I produced a full library loaded with.GIVEAWAYS.to go along with each Week of my One Area Obstacle Transformation! Everything from Wish List to Guides, it remains in there. If you have actually lusted over anything you have actually seen so much, the entire \”Store this Room\” freebies are in there:.
So what’ taking place for Week # 5? It’s everything about the walls.
Wall surface Task # 1: Paint Color.
I lastly selected my wall surface paint shade! I did NOT want to repaint this room again because this room is 2 stories AND it wraps all the method up my open stairs. (Did I state I’m the world’s laziest painter??) So I desired something neutral as well as soft. After considering means a lot of \”greige\” paint examples, I finally chose Benjamin Moore’s Balboa Mist. It is a light, creamy gray with simply a touch of beige in it. Right here it gets on the walls:.
More DIY Home Decor Ideas and Resources
The entire process made me think … so several of my clients require help with their paint shade! In virtually each and every single Postbox Task I have done, I have actually assisted my clients with their wall paint shades. So for this week’s One Area Difficulty Giveaway, I developed a:.
You can find 4 of these colors in my extremely own house, and I have actually used all of these for customer tasks. This is an excellent combination to get you began if you are excavating the Farmhouse Design (like my Space Remodeling)! A copy of it is hanging out in my.Free Resource Library.or just Pin & & Save for when you require it!
Wall Job # 2: Board & & Batten Wall surface.
You’ve seen some sneak glimpses of it, but my favored, favorite, FAAAAVORITE component of my area transformation is my brand-new board as well as batten wall surface!
I’m mosting likely to call it currently:.
Board & & Batten is the new shiplap.
I love shiplap as a lot as the following individual, actually in my extremely first One Room Difficulty, I included a shiplap wall surface for my child’s homework facility (created from a hallway). BTW, if you want to see just how I pulled this Research Area with each other as my very first ORC job, you can locate it.HERE.… in some cases I think we can all associate to these easy transformations that are d0-able!
However … like all fads, I believe shiplap isn’t going to last forever (sorry JoJo), so I intended to mix it up in my brand-new Space Transformation. Right here’s things with trends: use them in small doses !! If you shiplap your whole home, you could be regretting it in 5 years. It is a relatively simple change-out if you want a brand-new look when you do just one accent wall surface.
I included battens (over my existing drywall) to simply ONE wall surface:.
I had my (outstanding) father-in-law bent on my place to mount my new wall surface. If you want a whole tutorial, here is an excellent one from.Remodelaholic.! But also for my wall, we primarily simply mounted 1 \u2033 battens every 16 \u2033 so that they would certainly fall on the studs. When you are done), and also that was concerning it (simply make certain you have equal spacing on the ends! I did a little bit of caulking and loading it nail holes where required. I slapped on two layers of paint (to match my existing trim color).
For less than $100 in product, this board and batten wall surface is a simple method to add some Farmhouse beauty to your room. Select a wall and also you can be performed in a day!
Wall Job # 3: Gallery Wall surface.
Because my Living room is 2 stories high it has a Great Deal Of wall room. As a matter of fact, I have had numerous customers with the exact same problem-we all like these soaring ceilings, yet just how do you load up the wall surfaces ?? I ask you … please do not vomit a dinky framework and also be done.
High ceilings = Big range art work.
As well as because I’m a honored mom of 3 I have waaaay as well several photos of my children (my hubby calls it our shrine to our children) so I chose to go with the Gallery Wall. Plus, swap out your pictures every currently and then for an entire brand-new appearance!
