Is there seriously only one week left???
For those of you just joining the One Room Challenge series, welcome, make yourselves at home. In brief, I, along with over 150 other bloggers and designers, am transforming one room in 6 short weeks. You can catch up on my Powder Room progress below:
Here’s a look at our week:
We My husband got all the wainscoting up. (I did paint it all though). Although I thought we needed new baseboards, my husband informed me that the new ones I picked out were identical to the ones we had, just a bit taller. Okay then, let’s save our money and paint the old baseboards: Done and installed! We do still need to paint and install the quarter round. (And, why yes, we really do need to sweep up all the dust.) We also got our “now white door” hung.
The shelving unit is almost finished, just needs some finishing touches (like actually securing the backing), and another coat, or two, of paint.
I changed out the air vent cover on the floor to something a bit more pretty.
I also found some fun décor items for the shelves. The shopping continues because I like to see a bunch of options, and then return whatever doesn’t end up working.
I found a light fixture (bought 3, returned 2). The light fixture is up, just needs proper bulbs.
Seems like we accomplished a lot, right? Here’s the challenges we still have to figure out. Our walls are not even close to straight, so our chair rail is not cooperating by lining up in the corners. If you have any ideas for this, PLEASE let us know. But when we do figure it out (’cause we will) here’s what it will look like… so pretty!
We put the toilet tank back on and it’s leaking. Hmmm… We bought and installed a new faucet, but once installed it looked too big for the sink… bummer. I ordered a new one from Amazon and it should get here today. Fingers crossed that it works out better. I also need to figure out something for the bare wall. I’ve got some ideas, but I need to make up my mind and get ‘er done! I keep questioning my mirror choice. Thought I found one I’d love at Kirklands, but when I went, it was out of stock (despite saying they had 4 available). Hopefully we’ll get it all sorted out and everything will be great and wonderful for next week’s reveal.
