One Room Challenge Week Three

As they say, “It has to get ugly before it gets pretty.”  Or, they say something like that.

The painters are in and making a real mess of the place.  Behold my mom’s pool house –

What are all those stacks of doors on the left hand side?  Well, “we’ll just repaint the trim of the interior” turned into “we’ll paint the entire interior” which then turned into a discovery that all the doors were rotting from moisture from the pool which turned into replacing the doors which turned into repainting the exterior as well.  It happens.

There are a lot of doors to replace too…

The walls and ceiling are getting repainted to a nice beautiful white – Swiss Coffee, which is a go to white that I use all the time.

All those doors and all the trim are getting painted two different shades of blue.  I’m very excited to see this place drenched in white paint with, for lack of a better word, “pops” of blue.  Here are some inspiring white pool house spaces while ours is in process…




House of Turquoise



I’m so excited for the paint to be finished.  For now, I just wait.  Next Thursday I’ll be discussing lovely deliveries that have been arriving.

    Swiss Coffee; wonderful white. . . all our trim is high gloss SC! Glad the rotting doors were ‘discovered’; they will last for the next generation pool parties!
