One Room Challenge Spring 2020 – Week 7 – Finishing Touches

One Room Challenge Spring 2020 – Week 2 – Moulding Musings and Painting it Green

I love a traditional space and I also love how the addition of moulding helps any room feel more polished and designerly, and a lot more high end. But moulding is actually not all that expensive, and depending on the type can be fairly easy to add to any room.

When I consider what to add to a space, be my own or someone else’s, I like to consider the style of the rest of the home so the home feels cohesive. I do not feel like craftsman style board and batten belong in the same house as an intricate and detailed box moulding. If your house does not have a style and is fairly builder basic, I think you can go ahead and define a style but once you have decided what you are doing, you should really try and stick with it.

$300 Laundry Room Refresh

I thought today I would go back and write a little post about the $300 laundry room refresh I did for my mom a few months ago. That little makeover got a lot of buzz and was even featured in Apartment Therapy! If you are interested in reading the AT post, you can find it here. I think the reason it was so popular was because it involved zero actual construction and had a very low price tag but yet it still packed a really big punch. I have had a few questions about the products and methods I used to update the space so I thought I would write a blog post with some of those answers for you, all in one place. This is a meaty post so let’s get into it!
