One Room Challenge Week 4: Paint Can Fix Anything

It’s week 4 of the One Room Challenge! That means after this post, there is only one more progress post and then the big reveal! (Catch up with my posts here: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3)

I guess I’ll start out with a good progress photo, followed by a before shot!

One of the main things I did this past week was decide to paint our current nightstands. I was having such a hard time finding nightstands that I liked that were the right height. I guess our mattress is abnormally tall?? I know that in the past, I would try and rush the process and that’s when I end up with pieces that I want to replace like 3 months later. I really didn’t want to waste my time or money making that mistake, so I tried to think of a interim solution that still looks good and wouldn’t ruin my design.

I remembered that we still had a ton of leftover paint from when I painted our downstairs interior doors “Cyberspace” by Sherwin Williams. The color is the perfect dark gray/ almost black in certain light! I painted both of our nightstands this color and I really like them! I can’t even tell you how many times paint has come to my rescue!! I’m still going to keep searching vintage stores for the perfect nightstands, but this way I can actually wait for the right ones!

I replaced the knobs on our dresser with these simple black ones from Amazon. Such an easy update, but they look SO much better!

 Those are swatches on our wall - before i decided to paint our room white, i thought about doing the whole room either  repose gray  or  agreeable gray .

I also found this amazing painting at local vintage shop! I love the colors in it, and I’m trying to brainstorm a way to use those colors in other areas of the room!

Other things I got done in the past week:
- Almost finished painting our walls Pure White by Sherwin Williams
- Rolled out our new rug, with help from my husband (I don’t have a photo of that yet, sorry!!)

What I have left to do:
- Finish painting walls
- Decide what to hang over bed (DIY abstract art??)
- Decide where to hang other art/ plants
- Style nightstands

I also feel like something is missing from my design but I can’t put my finger on it. I’ve been thinking about possibly painting the window trim to be the same color as the closet area (repose gray)?? Or painting the closet doors that cyberspace color? Change the light/plug switch covers to matte black? I don’t know - but hoping I figure it out soon!

Check back next week for my last progress post!! And as always, scroll through the amazing progress of the featured designers + the other guest participants!
