Hello All! Can you believe it’s already week 3 of the One Room Challenge?! This week I’m sharing our mudroom with a wallpapered ceiling! Yes you read that right… even though my window still hasn’t arrived I’m pushing forward and I wallpapered the ceiling!
In week 1 I shared my mood board and plans.
In week 2 I shared my progress of building the mudroom.
Here’s where I started week 3… with newly mudded and taped drywall. I spent the week sanding and mudding over and over until the walls were perfect. Then I painted the walls and ceiling with my go-to white paint, Benjamin Moore “Chantilly Lace”. I also primed the ceiling with “Shieldz” a specific wallpaper primer.
I painted the exterior of the door with Sherwin Williams “Night Owl” and the Interior with Benjamin Moore “Midnight Oil”. I also added this lever doorknob and deadbolt.
While my paint dried I tiled the floor with this matte ceramic faux marble tile. It was incredibly affordable and I did the whole room for under $150! I used a gray grout to finish it off.
Then it was onto wallpapering. Let me tell you… Wallpapering a ceiling is NOT for the faint of heart. It requires enough step stools and platforms that you never have to let go to touch the floor. It also requires arm strength and endurance that I do NOT have! Somehow I persevered! I’m sure you can understand how I was not able to simultaneously take pictures while putting the wallpaper on the ceiling.
I had polled you all for wallpaper suggestions and “D” the bird and cloud wallpaper clearly won out. Then I went to purchase it and realized it was 3x the cost of all of the other wallpapers I was considering! So cost won out and I went with this floral wallpaper by House of Hackney.
SOMEHOW I calculated wrong and ran out of wallpaper! Now I need a 4′ x 27″ piece and I had to order a complete double roll for this small amount.
Even though I’ve been accomplishing tons, I still feel like there is SO much to do!
Here’s what’s left on the list:
- Install Window
- Build and tile step
- Move white door to replace tan door
- Build bench
- Install hook wall
- Secure and Level Wardrobes, Add New shelves and Bins
- Install All Trim and Crown Molding
- Purchase and Install Siding
- Hang Light Fixture
- Find and Install Missing Wallpaper
- Style, Stage, and Photograph Reveal
- Find and Purchase 5’x10′ Rug
Thanks a ton for following along! I really appreciate everyone’s support and enthusiasm! This mudroom is definitely the biggest DIY project I’ve ever taken on and it’s so wonderful to know how many people I have rooting for me!
