I’m so excited for Week 3 of the One Room Challenge. Things are speeding along and yesterday we began transforming a room with paint. It is really crazy how much of a difference a fresh coat of paint really does! I have to thank Ethan for this week because he started painting the office for me on Tuesday while I was at work and that has really helped me stay on track with the Office Overhaul. Everyone say thanks, Ethan!
I bought the paint on Monday night and decided to go with Benjamin Moore Bold Yellow which is part of their Classic Color Collection. At first, I was a little nervous that this color would be too bright. Should I have tested it? Maybe. Once the color was on the walls I knew I made the right choice. It is exactly the color I was dreaming of! Bright, sunny, and invigorating. I already can’t wait to get some work done at my desk with a cup of coffee and some lemon essential oil diffusing.
Now that the hardest part (I think) is over, I really only have a few more things to do. This weekend I’m going to paint the desk. I chose another color by Benjamin Moore Razzle Dazzle. I checked the last item off my product ordering list today, yay! So far the items that have arrived are the rug, curtains, all the paint, and the Jonathan Adler goodies. On the way are the chair and the Gray Malin print. Next week I’m taking a trip to IKEA to grab the pendant lamp and the second part of the shelving. Then it all comes together!
I’m going to try to carve out some time to get a few DIYs in next weekend too. I’m thinking this Litter Box Cover DIY and this Ombre Pegboard Shelf. Also, I’m going to get a cheap faux sheepskin from IKEA and dye it so I can use it as a seat cover for the acrylic chair.
Bowie was my little helper today. He desperately needs a bath and some grooming but he’s still a cutie. Make sure you keep following my Office Overhaul board on Pinterest because I keep adding ideas and items as I find them. Cheers to success so far with the 2018 Spring One Room Challenge!

YESSSS! Love the color choice. We painted our living room fireplace hot yellow and it was transformational. (You can search for “living room fireplace” on The 256 Project to see what I mean.) Loving your ORC progress!
Thank you so much! I think I want to paint one of my mantels a bright color but I haven’t decided yet. Love it!
Wow! What a fun color choice!
Thank you! It’s really bright and cheery!
