Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on last week’s One Room Challenge Reveal post. You have no idea how much it brightened my week to see your feedback! I am happy to report that the new & improved garage has been a huge hit, especially with the littles. Who ever knew it would become a full-on play space?! Such a rousing endorsement from two people I didn't even think would notice just sends me over the moon.
But the real reason we’re back post-reveal is for resources! We all love a good shopping shortcut, so hopefully you’ll find one in here…
For walls and trim, we used Benjamin Moore Misty Gray in eggshell. Thundercloud Gray (also eggshell) went on the accent walls in the nook, and I liked it so much I added it to the workbench pegboard and the back door.
The kids adore their workbench playset. Unfortunately it's not available any more, but their beloved power tools are. This 8-piece Bosch set was originally a Costco find, but it’s now available on Amazon! Mom of the Year cringes a little when my son tells his friends he has a chain saw and staple gun, but he is so proud. But I digress. And of course there are my lovely new Schlage doorknobs from Lowe’s!
On the storage side, the Everbilt bike hangers came from Home Depot. These babies are magic, and only $5 apiece! So much better, and cheaper, than the monstrosity I was planning to DIY. Can’t tell you how glad I am I found these.
Now for the nook. While West Elm no longer carries them, you can find your own mint green fridge dream online at AJ Madison. They have quite a range of colors, including "pastel green," which is the official color name.
That amazing sunshine-all-the-time light fixture is the Ashland Pendant in Buttery Yellow with ribbed glass and matching guard from Barn Light Electric. The Free Swim Pool sign is vintage from my mom. The yellow forsythia wreath I bought on clearance at Pier 1.
The wooden floor was painted in Benjamin Moore Floor & Porch Low Sheen Latex Enamel in black and white and clear coated with Lenmar Acrylic Urethane in Clear Satin. Like the wall paints, these were from Texas Paint & Wallpaper, who is my go-to for any questions involving paint. I used the Fish Scale Allover stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils for the design. The cute little galvanized pail I'm using to catch bottle caps came from Home Depot.
The shelves are Ikea's Ivar system (which I also used in the main part of the garage), stained with MinWax Ipswich Pine Oil-Based Interior Wood Stain. The white speckled planter is West Elm, and while it shows they aren’t available right now, they may carry them again come spring (they’ve had them for 2 or 3 years now). The white porcelain bowl is new at Two Little Limes. The grey & white woven bins, which I fell for hard, are also from Target. They only have a few of these exact ones left in stores by now, but they also have an almost identical option online.
The kitchen island is Ikea's Groland, stained as above. Alegria table runner with mini poms from Two Little Limes. Floral Skull print from Be Wild And Free. Vintage mint green Hamilton Beach drink mixer was my grandmother's. The Robert Earl Keen playlist and Mother's Day masterpiece from my 5 year old are "must-displays" from our collection.
If you have questions about anything I missed, leave a comment and I'll respond with what I know! Thank you again for being part of our One Room Challenge journey this year. Be sure to check out our shop, Two Little Limes, and visit us again April 7th when the spring ORC kicks off!
