This week of One Room Challenge was all about painting furniture and adding colour and interest to otherwise boring pieces. But before I’ll show you exactly what I did, let me just say that it’s really killing me to share these in progress photos with you! I’m really not used to posting the before shots, and the un-decorated and unfinished spaces!

But then I remind myself that this challenge is all about showing how transformations happen, that nothing happens overnight, and that in every makeover there’s a lot of effort and a lot of mess involved!

So I started by painting a little vintage side table that I had for years now. I used the Behr colour of the year Blueprint, that I think is a perfectly balanced moody blue. One layer and this table was all done!

 

Then I decided to add a touch of Blueprint to the gallery wall  too, since it looked a bit too dull for my taste. I painted the custom-made signed from Studio Noel on Etsy.  ( The sign was perfect alone, but on my gallery wall it was missing some contrast)

And the last piece that got two coats of fresh paint was the mid-century modern credenza that I scored on Etsy! It had been re finished, but the top had a different colour then the sides, and quite frankly the yellowish wood is not my favourite!

Now I’m just too excited for the next steps: installing the wallpaper and styling !

We just got the wallpaper yesterday, so I think next week it should be up! And then all that will be left is adding layers of texture and setting the nursing/reading corner!

Stay tuned for next week update!
