So friends, here we are … week FIVE of this One Room Challenge.
I honestly can’t believe it!
Just one short week away from our big reveal (that’s right, ONE!) and it feels like we’re just barely getting started with things.
You see, we’ve only had 4 walls for about a week or so now (catch up with that story right here). And even those weren’t really, totally finished. We still had some wood planks to install (and by some, I mean three entire wall’s worth).
And then of course there would need to be some painting, new trim, more painting, new lighting, a bit more painting, a barn door installation,
a bit a lot of furniture building, some furniture refinishing thrown in for good measure, hunting down the perfect curtains, then hanging them and, of course, the decorating.
Yet, despite having to finish up what is essentially six week’s worth of work in a mere two, we’re more hopeful than ever that we’ll somehow be able to pull it all off in time.
So, where exactly are we with things?
Well, we’ve got most of the walls covered with wood…
A whole lot of furniture to unpack/ build (find everything we chose for the space here)…
And, well, that’s about it.
Which means we’ve still got A LOT of work ahead of us!
– demo and rebuild wall
– paint chalkboard wall
– hang sliding door
– remove ceiling fan and move to centre
plank walls and ceiling (don’t need to worry about that ceiling now!)
– paint walls and ceiling
– install new light
– replace trim and paint
– hang art and decorate
So, how exactly are we going to get this all done (and photographed) in just one short week? Here’s what I’m hoping the last week of this One Room Challenge will look like for us:
Thursday – prime & paint wood walls, build furniture from The Brick
Friday – paint & install trim, paint ceiling, paint chalkboard wall
Saturday – install new lighting, finish chalkboard wall
Sunday – hang sliding door, hang curtains, hang art
Monday – move in furniture
Tuesday – photograph
Wednesday – edit photos and write post for late night reveal!
Wish me luck my friends! I’m sure going to need it!!!
