Hey, everyone! Welcome to the next-to-last installment of Casa Watkins’ New Year New Room Refresh Challenge.
Remember last year when I was all wrapped up two weeks early and sat around watching Housewives and eating gummy bears while everyone else was sweating it out to the finish line? You know what Shannon Bedore says about Karma, right? Karma is basically throat-punching me right now.
So here we are, in the same sad place we were last week, hoping that the grasscloth will magically adhere itself to the walls or that I can convince Michael it would be oodles of fun to spend his first weekend off in 5 weeks helping me with this project. The installer won’t return my calls and it’s reached full-blown panic stage over here.
You may be wondering what happened to the wall of wainscoting. I had a bid done several weeks ago by the guys who do all of my crown moulding. The bid wasn’t crazy expensive ($10 a square foot for supplies, installation, and painting), but we’re waiting to hear about a possible transfer (I’ll keep you posted!) and are really reluctant to make any large changes to the house right now.
You’ll notice there is no DIY art piece this week, either. #epicloser The upside to this is that you don’t have to suffer through another one of my sad, sad DIY attempts. Time to put you nice people out of your misery and send you off to see what the other lovely ladies accomplished this week. (They’re probably watching Housewives and eating gummy bears in their finished rooms.)

Many thanks to the generous sponsors who are supplying product for this makeover. I’ll create a room worthy of free product or die trying! (A serious possibility. You should see my calendar this week.)
Who’s up for a huge surprise when I reveal the room next week? (It’s going to be a huge surprise for me, too.) Tomorrow I’ll have kitchen pictures from the client project that wrapped up a couple of weeks ago–woohoo! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
