Things have been pretty busy around here with the six-week One Room Challenge in full swing. I’m making over a multi-use space that serves as our dining room and my office. Here’s how it looks as of this week:
I’ve painted the walls and new curtain rods, hung curtains and shades, and put down a rug.
Here’s a recap of progress for the past week weeks:
- First week: The grand plan
- Second week: Choosing paints and lighting
- Third week: Window treatments and rug
Three more weeks to go! In addition to the One Room Challenge, we’re still settling in to the whole house. We just moved a little over a month ago, But we’re loving it so far! (See some more progress I’m making on our living room here!) It’s a pretty sweet two-bedroom town home that we’re really enjoying making our own. I can’t wait to share some more One Room Challenge progress and other house projects, but you can always catch peaks of what I’m up to on a day-to-day basis on Instagram!
In the meantime, it’s time for another fun little Homedit project: how to make a painted concrete letter!
I’ve been dabbling a lot in working with concrete lately. Did you catch my little concrete planters and concrete coasters? Well, after finishing the coasters, I thought this concrete letter project would be a great way to use up the rest of my concrete powder. And it was pretty easy, too.
For the concrete, I just swung by my local home improvement store and picked up a little box of Cement All Rapid Set concrete mix. Just make sure you get the kind that only requires adding water. It makes the process much easier! For the paint, I used my favorite DecoArt Americana Decor Metallics in Antique Bronze. It’s such a lovely color.
