One Room Challenge Week 2 – A Clean Slate

Hey there! I’m ready to share some One Room Challenge progress! 
Although, my family may not think much has happened. Ha! When you are working in a space that is used daily, you can never get it done fast enough. Am I right? 

Just a reminder of the before. (more before here)

Now down to business. This week was full of me doing the messy stuff. Things I don’t really like to do. All things necessary however, if I want a new space!! Wallpaper was removed.

Awww memories of colors past…


We did some demo.

The ceiling was scraped.
before the mess…

after the mess…oh my!!
Maybe I need to work on my technique?! 🙂 Oh well, I got it done. I think no matter how you go about this it’s a messy job!!


The wall behind the cabinet was textured. (which I forgot to photograph…)

And everything was primed.

Aaaahhh, a clean slate! It looks better already!

Now it’s time to start putting things together.

At one point this week, my head started swirling with all the things that I hope to accomplish. So, I made a list. (you may have seen this on instagram – follow along for behind the scenes updates – @denisegwood)


Honestly, this list is exhaustive, there’s not that much – I just didn’t want to forget anything at the last minute!! Ha ha! 

The kids are on fall break which means I have extra hands for a few days! Back to work I go!!

  1. Lol! I know that look, it's the I scraped popcorn ceilings look! HA! Looks like you made some great progress in there, wow! Put those kids to work, I think I should do the same here.

  2. Denise you got so so much done! The prep work is the worst (especially those ceilings – that can't have been fun!) so I yay to more of the fun stuff that's down the road. That's quite an impressive to-do list by the way!!

  3. Great progress!! I'm sure your ceiling scraping technique was great – whatever gets it done right! I have one of those giant to-do lists also, a little overwhelming but it makes it so much easier!
