Officially half way through the challenge and I can’t wait to do the final reveal!!
I am giddy with excitement about this latest home project of ours and it’s turning out beautifully. A few hiccups in the road to date which is expected with a project of this magnitude. I’m learning so much about this process and I’ll pass all that information along to you, so you can benefit from my advice and avoid one big mistake I made so far in the process.
WHAT IS THE ONE ROOM CHALLENGE
The One Room Challenge™ is a biannual event every April and October and is currently in its sixteenth season. Each round, twenty design bloggers take the challenge and transform a space. Every Wednesday, the designers document their process while sharing their sources and professional advice over six weekly posts.
The ORC has teamed up with Better Homes and Garden HERE to bring you this highly anticipated event.
MY PARTICIPATION IN THE ONE ROOM CHALLENGE
This round will complete my sixth season of the “One Room Challenge”. So many other talented people are also participating as guests, please check out their spaces HERE.
Prior Weeks Progress of our Exterior Modernization
This season, we are modernizing the exterior of our home. You can catch up on the details from previous weeks below.
- Home Exterior Modernization – “One Room Challenge” (Week 1)
- Exterior Home Modernization “One Room Challenge” (Week 2) Prepping the Brick for Primer
- Home Exterior Modernization “One Room Challenge” (Week 3) Priming the Brick
This Weeks Progress on our Exterior Painting
This weeks progress has been tremendous. My painters have been working their way around the house, front to back and applying the top coat of paint using a sprayer.
Before applying the masonry primer, we did tint it just a tad from its original stark white color. If you can tell from the picture above, the white we chose for the top coat has a touch of warmth with a tiny bit of creaminess which softens the look.
Remember the mudroom entrance with Bentley peeking out the window?
Looks completely different. As each new area of the home is painted I am astounded by the change. The before and after is remarkable.
The landscape is greener and so much more colorful against a white background.
Remember this retaining wall in our backyard?
A world of difference. Sadly, the rhododendrons I transplanted last year didn’t make it thru the hot summer so they have been removed and the area reseeded.
What is Coming Up Next Week?
I have so much more to show you all..I can’t barely contain my excitement for the final reveal. All the painting and touch up will be completed this week. Next week, outdoor lighting will be installed! I can’t wait to see the house all lit at night! Lots of good stuff coming your way.
