This One Room Challenge has me freaking out! I have never been truly concerned it wouldn’t get done until now. The stars are not aligning as hoped right now and it is a “challenge” beyond belief!
The countertop fabrication has taken longer, a sink is lost in transit, blah blah… Countertops are to happen today yet there is an issue with the island being level.
UPDATE: some gorgeous Polycor countertops are in!!! YAY…now the upper cabinets and appliances can be installed thankfully.
I am a double roll short on the office wallpaper. The office paint for the trim has 4 coats and is not covering.
The appliances are to be Friday. We had the washer and dryer put in to try to use early and the washer is leaking underneath…Calgon, take me away!
Most of the lighting went in without a hitch. Amen!
The bar is coming together nicely. The Florence Broadhurst wallpaper rocks!
I am melting down because I am away until Sunday too. Timing couldn’t be worse.
I still have a few open items to nail down like art most of which I am going to pull from my existing collection.
I have chosen lots of accessories with Hayneedle. They have a terrific assortment for furniture, accessories and anything you could ever want for the home.

These will be out the door into the patio. The exterior is WAY BEHIND…like not started. The siding had to be milled to match the existing and it is taking forever. The patio in currently a mud pit. UGH!
Tune in next Wednesday to see my progress (hopefully countertops, upper cabinets, appliances, and backsplash) and very soon the reveal. Have I taken on more than I should?…very possibly!
