One Room Challenge (Dining Room) - Week 3


Week THREE! I can't believe we are at the halfway point of the challenge already! This week has been a real game changer for the dining room.  The accent wall went up and it is AMAZING! I have to give a huge thank you to WallPops for partnering with me on the wallpaper. It is exactly...actually even better....than what I imagined for the wall!!

 This is the NuWallpaper from WallPops! You may remember I have used their removable wall decals in my youngest daughters room as well as the play area in the loft.  This wallpaper was so easy to install! I actually did the whole wall (10ft ceilings and all) by myself! 

This gorgeous blue patterned paper is the "Kensington Damask Paper"
Find the wallpaper here.....Kensington Wallpaper




To install the paper I started on the upper left side. As the roll drops you just smooth out the paper and lightly pull the backing down.


To smooth out and ensure I left no air bubbles I used a very high end tool...our community pool pass! LOL.  Seriously, any plastic credit card will do the trick.  No fancy tools needed.




In this last picture you can see the paper over our baseboards.  At this point I slid the card over the baseboard crease to form a nice indent.  Then you need to use a razor box cutter and go over the crease.

Easy Peasy People!! After the first row was finished I got back on the ladder and worked on the second row...and so on.  The most difficult part was cutting around the one window in the wall but honestly that wasn't too difficult either. 




And just like that this week the dining room took on a WHOLE new gorgeous look! 


I had my husband help hang up the Lenda curtains from IKEA this week as well.  
You like that little fiddle leaf?! Me TOO!! All those details will be up next week...this was just a little tease :)


XOXO

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

Lets get Tropical!

Hey dolls! On Monday I took a poll to see if you all would be interested in what I'm bringing to the Caribbean and it was pretty much unanimous...92% of you are READY FOR SUMMER GOODS! Which I was obviously excited about because this year I found some awesome and affordable new bathing suits that I have been dying to share! (If you're my girlfriend you already know about these suits because I literally already text you all with BUY a swimsuit from here!) Plus some other cute vacation items that will probably become my summer staples! Okay lets get tropical!! (This post contains affiliate links)

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
