One Room Challenge Week 5 - Down To The Wire

 

Wow guys!  It is Week 5 of the One Room Challenge.  I feel pretty good about where I am and panicked at the same time.

Got a couple deliveries coming in hot. The shelf, light fixtures and headboard installed.

My DIY project this week was to makeover the little stool I got at the thrift store.  

This stool will always be the purchase that got me my first Senior Discount!  No really.

Little did I know that Tuesday’s you get a 20% discount if you’re over 55 at Community Hospice Hope Chest. The clerk was looking at me, trying to decide whether to take the risk and ask. Since I didn’t know there was a discount on Tuesdays, I thought she just really liked the lip color I had on as she studied me. But then she went there...very politely. I blurted out “yes” without thinking when she said, “you’re not 55 are you?” Yes. Yes I am! Loud and proud. So with my senior discount, my little stool cost a whopping $8! 😉 This is a high five when I’m trying to do this project on a budget.

All the discounts please.

To give this stool a makeover I sanded a million layers of paint down.

I used a white spray paint with primer and gave it two coats.

Using a trash bag, I taped off the legs of this cutie and sprayed them gold to create that dip dyed look.

I flipped it and touched up a couple spots but it was a really quick project.

She’s feeling so much better about herself!

‘Because you know I’m all about that bass, bout that bass…’

Well maybe more like the base…meaning starting with the base…meaning painting. That’s whats been happening this week. But why don’t I share a few pics of where we’re starting and what my plan is for this room.

You can see one of my test swatches on the wall. Three walls will be white and the 4th wall will be navy. I’ve actually got some of the white walls painted and am loving it.

‘We gon’ take it to a whole nother level’

Don’t ask me why I’m channeling Meghan Trainor…

too many paint fumes!

This nightstand and the black shelf unit will not be in the finished room. I already have the shelf, bedding and wall sconces.

The headboard is ordered and on its way.
