Welcome to WEEK THREE of the One Room Challenge Linking Party hosted by Calling it Home!!!  If you’re just joining me, check out my progress from Week 2.

This week has been… all about that paint, that paint… no trouble!  I figured if I sang those “adjusted” lyrics to Meghan Trainor’s song, I’d get that powder room painted quickly, easily, no problem.  Overall, it worked.

I had a little help.

Painting Assistance

I started after I put the kids to bed by painting all the edges, but the next day, in daylight, I could see that the edges would need a second coat.

Let me introduce you to my help for round two of painting:

Oh, the babysitting powers of Nick Jr!  In about 40 minutes, I was able to go over all of the edges a second time, this time in daylight, ensuring that I wouldn’t need a third coat.

That night I was able to roll the walls, and this is what I got:

Yes, it’s dark.  My husband is fretting about it being “too dark”.  He even *gasp* suggested I source a new light fixture!  (I know I should really take him up on that – but part of me wants to prove to him that I can stick to our original budget agreement.  The power of saying I told you so might outweigh the power of a new fixture. For now.)  My solution is to grab a new light bulb and see if increasing the wattage will help the low light situation.  I’ll let you know how that turns out.

I’m pretty happy with the Behr “Skipper” blue.  I opted for eggshell because I wasn’t totally in love with the satin finish we chose for the Mudroom Makeover.

That’s all I got, folks!  Stay tuned!
