One Room Challenge Week 4: DIY Wall Moldings with Metrie

DIY Wall Moldings with Metrie

A bit of news to start off with: One Room Challenge is being extended an additional week! Due to the many natural disasters that have occurred recently in Texas, Florida, and California, our timeline has been extended. Definitely not a great reason to have to extend, but selfishly, this means more design ideas, more inspiration, and more time to make a masterpiece. Check out weeks one, two, and three. This week we’re tackling DIY Wall Moldings with Metrie!

This week we have been knee deep in renovation chaos! Tearing out baseboards is no easy task. However, if we can do it, you can do it! Throughout this One Room Challenge, we have wanted to do as much of the manual labor ourselves as possible. Of course, some things are best left to the pros (Hello electricians), but many things can be a DIY project if you’re willing to put the time and energy into it! So we put our big girl pants on and decided to attempt DIY Wall Moldings with Metrie supplies coming to our aid! It’s an ongoing process, but so far so good! I’ve created some easy tips and tricks for those of you who want to transform your space with wall moldings! It really is one of the easiest ways to really make an impact and transform a room.

We’ve included a few more inspirations pictures we referenced to get our wheels turning. There are so many possibilities when it comes to molding, and the results are high impact! Luckily Metrie makes it easy with Option {M} which are interior molding and door combinations that reflect current decor trends, making decisions easier on you!

Take a stab at your own molding masterpiece!

One Room Challenge Week 3 featuring: The Mine, Article, Bellecor, Hayneedle, and Annie Selke

One Room Challenge Week 3The fact that it’s already week 3 in the One Room Challenge is making me feel equal parts excited and terrified! We still have so much to do! However, everything is in the works and I can say with full confidence that this office space is going to be amazing. It’s taken awhile to get a firm plan of action, so many decisions! But, we’ve finally gotten a handle on the overall design. Our color palette has shifted a bit from our last post (see Week 2, HERE) and it is going to be quite dramatic, especially when compared to where we started (see Week 1, HERE). We’re all about making an impact here!

Check out all the components and get a peek inside our design process!

One Room Challenge week 2

We have joined 20 bloggers (see the full list below!) for the biannual One Room Challenge. Join us for 6 weeks as we show the start to finish of our office makeover! 

Last week I announced our participation in the One Room Challenge and showed some ahem, glorious, before photos of our office that we will be renovating. We got a late start on the challenge so we are in massive make-up mode over here, not to mention it’s our busiest time of the year plus two major deadlines this week. Doesn’t this crisis mode always seems to happen at the same time every year? Or maybe just every 3 months? 1 month?

I wanted to start with some inspiration for the room like this one above. Read on →

One room challenge week one

One room challenge with The House That Lars Built When it comes to the spaces I live and work in, I’m always itching to rearrange furniture, try a new paint color, and mix up the style. However, it’s hard to make the time unless I have a deadline to motivate me. Anyone else thrive on deadlines?! Lucky for me, I got the kick in the pants that I needed! I’m thrilled to announce our participation in the Fall 2017 One-Room Challenge! Over the course of six weeks, I’ll be one among 20 design bloggers taking you along our redesign process and showing how you too can redesign your space with a few simple steps! From wallpaper and lighting to furniture and rug selection, we’ll show you the ins and outs of the design process starting with these MAJOR BEFORE photos. YIKES! Sometimes you don’t know how bad something is until you look at it through a nice lens…and thousands of followers. It’s going to be a fun ride! Read on →

October desktop wallpaper

October 2017 desktop wallpaper

October made her grand debut here with cold temperatures, rainstorms, and leaves that seemed to change colors overnight. Clearly, she wanted to make an entrance! And although I had to hustle to unpack my sweaters from storage, it was a welcome change of scenery, literally. I love our new October Desktop Wallpaper because it so perfectly captures the magic of Autumn! I had a chance to go on a walk this past weekend and the brisk weather and falling leaves were just what the doctor ordered. So let’s all try to enjoy the subtle, and not so subtle, signs of Fall this month!
