Before and after shots of moulding and paint for Jeweled Interiors Fall 2018 One Room Challenge
Note: Some products in this post are sponsored but the opinions are 100 percent my own.
Holy Smokes!!! This week we are fully enjoying the perks of home ownership! That’s right, out of the thirteen moves, only 3 have been to homes we actually own. Sure, there is a lot you can do to personalize a rental, but I’m so excited to be able to add moulding to our home! Man, oh man! You have to check it out!
What is the ORC?
I want to start out with a huge thank you to Linda, from Calling it Home, for organizing this…THE MONSTER TRUCK EXPEDITION of all link-ups…THE… FALL… ONE ROOM CHALLENGE???! (said in my best echoing “big voice”) Yassssss!
Never heard of it? Well, my friends, then you have never lived! This is a 6 week competition between 20 “Challenge Participants” and hundreds of other “Guest Participants” (like me). All of us have the goal of transforming our spaces with only a month and a half to get it done (how is it already WEEK 2???!!!). As an added bonus there are two great media sponsors for this event, Better Homes and Gardens and Home Love Network. They will be picking their favorites to showcase and we will all be cheering each other on to the finish line. It’s all so…what’s the word…
Why I Love Metrie Moulding
Who hasn’t walked down the aisle of a big box store and been a little overwhelmed by all of the options. Which pieces look good together? If I pick this crown moulding and this chair moulding will they actually coordinate? Is this moulding the right scale for my space? That’s the beauty of Metrie.com. Not only do they have quality products, they also have collections. You simply pick which style you prefer and all of the pieces in the collection work together.
So Friday I took a field trip to a local Metrie location and picked up this Panel Moulding. We borrowed our kind neighbor’s tools, and the rest is history.
Before Metrie Moulding
Not horrible, but so much potential here
After Metrie Moulding
What do you think? Does is make you hungry for moulding?
Before Metrie in the Dining Room
Calling all of my friends over 90 years old. It’s time for dinner!
After Metrie in the Dining Room
After- for now
If you are wondering how in the world I went about determining how much to order scroll through the diagrams below. Basically I chose to leave a three inch gap between the Metie Panel Mould and most walls, ceilings, and other trim.
Truth be told, we still have some more work to do in these two rooms. It’s going to be a few early mornings and late nights to try to sneak in the additional coats of paint and boards of moulding. Let’s not forget though, we can do hard things!
A Huge Thanks to my Fabulous Sponsors
