One Room Challenge - Week 2: Modern Two Story Great Room Makeover


It's week 2 of the One Room Challenge Two Story Great Room Makeover and I am neck deep in all of it! This week has been all about finalizing the details so that I can hit the ground running. For those of you who have been following along for a while - you know I am a "planner" (and type A!). And I really believe that before any home renovation or project, all the details need to be ironed out for things to fall into place to avoid (as best as possible) unnecessary stress! There will always be hiccups along the way, but I think having a plan in place is best. This is my third rodeo with the One Room Challenge and so I have definitely learned from past mistakes. To know more about the One Room Challenge and the space I am making over, here is a link to Week One.

I have totally been hustling for the past 7 days, but the room still looks the same! I guess you can say there's been "work" but nothing to show for it quite yet! Here's what the space looks like despite long hours of planning and preparation.





So what have I been up to this week? Well choosing paint colors, wallpaper treatments and finalizing a few design ideas. My choice of paint products has always been Sherwin Williams. I have had the greatest success with their colors and finishes. They offer so many colors to choose from - you really can customize the paint color to be an exact match to the look you are going for. Not to mention, their paints are durable with minimal chipping and clean up after a paint job has always been a breeze!





For this season's One Room Challenge, I have partnered with Fabricut and they have been an absolute dream to work with! Their selection of wallpapers, fabrics, trim and hardware is exceptional and their customer service has been phenomenal! They really have every option you can think of when it comes to the finishing touches in any space. Here are my wallpaper selections for the two story great room makeover.




So how is this all going to come together? Well here's my vision for the Modern Two Story Great Room Makeover:



And here are my thoughts on the wallpaper and paint color combinations.




So what's on the punch list for next week? Well I'm hoping to get the first bit of cabinetry installed and the back walls painted. Stay tuned to see if I'm able to get the job done! I have been toying with the idea of a trim accent wall, but I'm not quite sure yet .. hmmm - there may be a special surprise in store for next week!
