I can see how this One Room Challenge works so well. You start with six weeks and think, sure, that’s doable, and then right after week one, you start feeling behind–or that could be just me!
The main thing we wanted to address in our attic was that we had slanted walls that were all painted white. We talked about a few options, including shiplap. We did that in our kitchen and saw how it made the space look more finished, so this was an option we considered until we discovered Stikwood. Have you heard of Stikwood? It’s reclaimed and sustainable wood planking.
Stikwood products include Peel and Stik wood planking that can be used in both residential and commercial spaces. The product is made from wood that has been sourced in the United States. Once it is on the wall, you would never know that it is actually very thin. This innovative product looks and feels like any other wood, but it is much simpler to install.
My husband spent just one day installing Stikwood on our end wall and it has transformed the room already. It has given this all white space warmth and dimension. The only difficult part of installing Stikwood was having to go up and down the two flights of stairs to make each cut.
Stikwood has many tools to determine which product is best for your project– they even have samples that you can bring into your home before placing your order. They have tools like Workbench that help you determine how much to order, how to cut the product, and how to install it.
We used Stikwood to make a dramatic change to our all white attic walls.
Our design is based on using a black leather sectional that we already owned. Let me tell you, it was not easy to get it into the attic. They finally had to push it through the window… I couldn’t watch! Since this space is for our college-age son and his friends, we are keeping that in mind with the entire design. The space is also used as guest space for college kids. We have two twin beds that must be in this space as well. We are using a few items from Serena & Lily and Target. The Smeg mini refrigerator from west elm is a wish list item, but it’s so cute!
