One Room Challenge, Week 2

Hello, and welcome back. This is the second week of the One Room Challenge. I am transforming my mudroom into a functional and pretty space. You can start at the beginning, here


This week was all about the wall treatment. I decided to have Joe and Mike fabricate the entire wall while I supervised. Mike doesn't hate me as much as he did before....I think it is because he knows I'm moving. 


The top board is a 1 x 6 made of real wood. The remainder of the treatment is MDF. This board was set at a 60" height.



I had the difference split for the next two horizontal rows of 4.5" wide MDF. The bottom piece is wider to keep the same reveal




I decided that a simple board and batten treatment would be best for the mudroom. Deciding on the vertical spacing took a few tries.....yeah, they are sick of me.


Here is the finished treatment. It was no accident that the electrical outlets were not in the way. 


Of course each corner was not the same :-/ so I just went with what looked right.


I'll do the prep work and then call in my painter, Vinney, to give it a professional finish. Hopefully that will happen this week. Once the room is painted, I plan on having these hooks installed.

Available here
That's all I have this week, now let's go see what everyone else has accomplished. 

Thank you One Room Challenge Sponsors;



And I'll see you back here tomorrow for the Linking Event.

I'm loving how it's coming together! And smart girl to hire out - moving prep's a beast so I know how full your plate is right now!

Cathy Wall said...

A girl's toolbox should always contain the phone numbers to the best contractors, even if they "hate" you! These guys no doubt love you because they know the final product will be something they can be proud of, even if they did change it 3 times!

I can already tell this is going to be wonderful. Love architectural moldings added to any room. They make all the difference in the finished look of the room. So fun to follow along,

This is going to be a lovely addition to your already lovely home. Glad to see you had already conquered the placement of those damned outlets. They usually show up where you need them the least!

Naomi@DesignManifest said...

NICE! This is going to give it such a finished feel. I Love being able to eyeball things in the field. Drawing it out is good too, but the real deal is so much more... uhh real. :)
