One Room Challenge – Week Two – Prepping

Prepping Process

I hope everyone had a chance to check out the featured designers and guest participants on the One Room Challenge!

Last week, I showed you my plan for our Master Bedroom. Here is what it looked like:

We spent some time removing all of the furniture, tearing out the carpet and pad, pulling out 1000 staples out of the floor, removing the baseboard trim, and painting the ceiling and walls. I was thinking I didn’t get much accomplished, but that list is longer than I thought.

Here is what the room looks like today:

Empty room with new paint

We painted the room Sherwin Williams Repose Gray. It is absolutely one of my favorite greige colors. Not too gray…not too brown. It looks good with whites, woods, and other colors.

I would have loved to go a little bolder in the room, but we are putting our house up for sale, so we want to make the room appeal to the masses.

Fresh White Ceilings

When buyers walk into the room, it will feel fresh and clean with the new paint.

Newly painted trim and walls

The trim in the room had been painted with leftover flat ceiling paint that wasn’t scrubbable or durable. Now was the perfect time to fix the problem so future owners don’t have to.

Repose Gray Walls

This week’s progress was well needed but definitely not exciting.

So here is a sneak peek of the new nightstands that I will be finishing.

New nightstands that need finishing

Next week’s focus will be putting in the new floors and hanging the new light fixture that just arrived.

Thanks for following along on this journey with me and the ORC!
