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!!

Melissa @aprudentlife says
You're making great progress! I can see why the list is scary though, I need to break my down into smaller tasks too.
Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles says
Yes, 1,000 times better already! Yay, you got the messy demo done, now on to the fun stuff!
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.
Denise Greenwood says
Thanks so much Melissa!! At least I get to cross things off this week!!
Kris @ Driven by Décor says
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!!
Casey FitzGerald says
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!
Denise Greenwood says
Thanks Casey! You are right – at least it's done!
