When I woke up this morning, I somehow convinced myself that it was week five instead of week four and almost started hyperventilating. So, instead of feeling panicking about only having two weeks left, I’m feeling good about these last two weeks…even though we have LOTS left to do. For those of you who are new here, I signed up for the One Room Challenge, a biannual, six week challenge in which you document the process of re-imagining a space from top to bottom. It’s hosted by Better Homes and Gardens and is loads of fun! If you would like to catch up, here are links to week one, week two, and week three.
Here is the mood board that I put together to help me visualize the space better. Although, lots has been happening this week, and some tweaks have been made to the original plan. But, I think I’m going to keep those changes a secret until the big reveal. A girl needs to keep a surprise or two up her sleeve, ya know?
The biggest accomplishment this week is that we HAVE FOUR WALLS! Yes, four walls! And I decided to stain those walls. I wanted to get some of the yellow and orange tones out of the wood and hopefully, keep it from darkening into a big orange mess. Here is what the walls were looking like before the stain.
And after the stain…
It might be hard to tell from these photos, but IRL this wood is looking WAY whiter, and WAY brighter! I’m really happy that it matches the floors now so it doesn’t feel visually overwhelming with multiple wood tones all happening in a small space.
Ok…so now down to business. Here is the to-do list so we can finish this sucker on time!
- Ceiling finished
- Install baseboards
- Install lighting – interior/exterior
- Paint touching up – interior/exterior
- Window boxes
- Install blinds
- Furniture install and figure out layout
- Decide on a coffee table
These are the big items but there are a few other odds and ends that I need to figure out as well. Lots of little details left! So that’s it for now! Until next week! And as always, if you have any questions, leave them below! XOXO
