We are to the half way point of the One Room Challenge. If you are unfamiliar, myself, along with dozens of other bloggers are renovating a room in 6 weeks and documenting it as we go. You can see my fellow one room challenge participants here.
I am tackling my basement. My goal is to give it a budget friendly, California cool update. You can see where I started and my plans on my Week 1 post and read how I removed the drop ceiling on Week 2. Since last week I painstakingly painted the entire open ceiling. One coat with a roller and one with a paint sprayer. I highly recommend a paint sprayer if you want to tackle a similar project. I use the Wagner 350 HVLP.
I also painted the walls and the fireplace, all Behr Polar Bear . To deck out the freshly painted fireplace I enlisted the help of my kiddo to create some original art on, pun intended, skateboard decks. I did a similar project last summer and I loved how it turned out so much that I decided to riff of it.
Have your kiddo draw shapes and lines on your canvas (or skateboard).
2. He picked the color and placement and I painted the outlne of the shape, then Oliver filled in the inside.
I just love how it turned out. I should note that I chose the color palette, as to be sure I will love the combos and how it looks in the room.
Now that the major painting is over, I feel like I can breathe for a second.Though there is still plenty to do.
What’s left to do:
assemble Ikea storage cabinet
paint built in shelf
organize toys and styling items
