One Room Challenge Week 6- The Final Push!

Today I want to share with you my laundry room wall treatment for the ORC. You can check back on the 'before' pictures and weekly progress here. This is our last progress post before the FINAL REVEAL MARCH 20th!  Bethany and I had alot of fun creating this upholstery treatment on my laundry room walls.



We used 1" jute tape that I bought from Etsy and 3/4" antique brass nail heads that I bought from KitKraft Inc.  I had the hardest time estimating how many I would need, so I ended up ordering multiple times, and may I say, both of these shops have excellent customer service! These studs were a bit pricey ($20 for 50) since I needed 200, but the impact is so worth it. I'm glad I didn't use smaller ones.




We made a spacing template so we could keep the distance between the nailheads consistent.







It installed so easily and really took only 2 hours total for the laundry room. I debated about glueing the tape, but ended up not doing that-it wasn't necessary. We decided not to cut corners and line the ceiling as well, and it made ALL the difference.




I love it, do you? I'm making the window treatment now, then all that's left is styling!

Good luck with the Reveal Challengers! See you on March 20th! I'm so excited for all of you!

  2. Nancy, this is so beautiful and fun for a laundry room....or any room. The spacer idea is brilliant, and keeps it so professional looking. That jute will tie everything in. Good luck on the final week.

    1. I never stopped the laundry. While it is beautiful in there, it doesn't make the task more appealing. It does however make me feel better about guests first impressions coming through that door! Thanks Gina.

  36. Hello: I received a call from a shopper in Seattle, who said you linked us to our clear star chandelier in one of your posts!! I cannot quite find it but I really had to pause here. This is a brilliant, inexpensive finish to a room that I will pin and tweet! Thanks for the mention!
    Best,
    Liz

  38. I love this, but have a question: Did you tack the jute into the wall with the studs using a hammer? If so, I have plaster walls. Thoughts?

    ReplyDelete

    1. It was drywall. I don't know if it would work on plaster. You could nail the studs in over the tape and just hang the tape somehow and forget hammering each one, possibly.

    1. Hi Abby! We made a cardboard template that was four inches, so they are four inches apart :)
