$100 Room Challenge Week 2
It’s the $100 Room Challenge – Week 2. Boy, has this week flown by! Honestly, between the holiday weekend, a wedding, and #life I feel as if I didn’t get much done.
However, I did get a few things painted as well as a little shopping done.
So without further ado, here’s what I did get done!
I chose my paint color for the walls.
Honestly, I’m not a gray fan, but the color that I went with is a soft blue/gray color.
Sherwin Williams Misty.
It’s perfect because not only does it go with the bedding, it also compliments all of the other colors that I plan to put in this room.
Once the paint color was chosen, I couldn’t wait to get started!
I cleared the room of everything but the big furniture items.
I was just about to start taping the room off when I just happened to look up.
That’s when I realized that the ceiling was the same color as the walls.
How did I miss that?
The ceiling definitely needed to be painted before the walls.
Luckily, I had an almost full gallon of ceiling paint in the garage from painting the Library a few months ago.
So, the bedroom ceiling got painted first!
Bright and early the next day I got up and started painting the walls.
Boy, did they need it!
Unfortunately, the walls were previously painted in a flat finish.
So the walls sucked up the new satin paint.
I had a bout 5 square feet of wall left when I ran out of paint!
Instead of buying another gallon, I purchased a sample of the same color.
Did you know that Sherwin Williams samples are quart sized and they come in a satin finish?
Plus, they are only $8.69 each.
Since they are having a 30% off sale, my sample came to $5.65!
The room is completely painted!
Everything is put back together, except for one thing.
I forgot to put the vent over the bed back into the ceiling!
Oh, well. There’s always tomorrow.
I thought that I needed to paint the crown molding, trim, and doors, but once the room was painted they looked great.
So where am I on my budget?
Here’s what I’ve spent so far:
1 gallon satin paint: $25.02
Ceiling paint – free (as it was sitting in the garage from another project.)
1 quart of sample paint: $5.65
Which brings me to the grand total of $30.67!
That’s it for the $100 Room Challenge Week 2.

Also, I’ll be linking each week up as we go.

Love love the color! Great progress!
Paint can make such a difference. The ceiling and walls look great in their new colors- nice job!
Thank you Jackie! You couldn’t be more right about paint making a difference. So much so that I’m getting ready to paint the living room, dining room and kitchen. If you give a mouse a cookie… lol!
Love the walls and ceiling look so warm and inviting now.
Than you Maria!
