Click to see WEEK 1 here


See how blah everything looks. Definitely in need of some character and COLOR!

Honestly, I feel like I got a good bit completed this week.

We taped off the room for the board and batten to see what height fit the space best. There may be some exact way to decide this but we basically did it the red neck way. I told Cam to move it up or down based on what I thought looked best. We may have to adjust lated depending on the batten boards we end up purchasing but I am flexible with the spacing.

The ceiling fan went in and although I would love some beautiful cool light fixture – we live in AZ and my boy’s love sleeping with the fan on.

We also installed the custom roman shade from Select Blinds. We went with a blackout shade since it is our kid’s room and we would prefer they didn’t rise with the sun 😉


I ran a poll over on Instagram stories to see what everyone’s favorite SW green was and the top two were Isle of Pines and Hunt Club. I also really liked Evergreens and threw that in the lineup as well!

Since in store pickup is closed currently I did A LOT of online research and narrowed it down to two colors and ordered samples. SW is awesome and brought my order right to my car. After painting samples on 4 different areas to test light, I fell in love with the color I had dreamed up for my vision! Here is a quick look:
