One Room Challenge Week Two
One Room Challenge Week Two already! To see all the other amazing room makeovers check this page http://www.oneroomchallenge.com/orc-blog/
The preparation stage is not as exciting as the finishing stage that’s for sure. It always makes me feel like I am behind because you don’t see much progress but the prep work is one of the most important parts.
What did I do this week
I took down most of the tiles from behind the stove and I am just waiting on the plumber to come out and remove the stove so I can get back in there and tile. I got all the brackets and shelves off the wall and filled the holes and sanded them back.
I removed all this gorgeous wallpaper, it made me a little sad because it’s still fabulous wallpaper. This colour will still be in the room though, just with a different combo.
I’m really enjoying experimenting making these pots for the plant wall. I will make some block colour ones too to scatter in amongst the other ones. I made a tray as well that I can use in the built in.
I got the ceiling painted. It so strange you think that maybe it doesn’t need a fresh coat of white paint, then I dabbed a little bit of white paint on the ceiling and there was a huge difference. Painted it with Dulux Trade Supermatt for the ceiling and used a Two fussy blokes roller and got a good audio book on. Painted the fireplace a coat but I will be going over this in the right white once my paint arrives.
What the aim is for next week
I feel like I need to get every piece of painting finished so I can move on, and also move some furniture back into the space. Even though I’m only doing one room I feel like the rest of the house is chaotic. But with everything cleared out of his room It will help me work faster. I need to finalise my plans for the built in as well so I can begin that soon. I’m going to take my time with the built in so I get it right.
Floating shelf wall for the indoor plants and my colourful pots. I am really excited to get this up so I can really work on what colour combos will work best for this room. It’s better for me to see things visually progress. Then if I need to make tweaks with colour or do a pivot I want. I ordered a really large rug as well that will cover most of the floor tiles which I hate and hope to remove and re-tile at some stage this year. Also this week I’ll try at get at least one shelf up If I can.
