One Room Challenge Fall 2018: Week 2

This One Room Challenge has me waking up in the night in a panic!

This week did not go as planned. I had a miscalculation in my calendar and the cabinets are going in next Monday not this Monday.  Not to worry, I think this will still all happen in time but the stars (and deliveries) must align.  You may see a star theme happening here too.

Today. I present you with the plan and the items or the “what”.

Next week. I will give the “why” on the items I have chosen and why they were each carefully selected.

If you are just tuning in, be sure to go HERE for WEEK 1

I still have a few open items to nail down like art, accessories and a bit more.

Outdoor Fixtures:

These will be out the door into the patio.

They are by Craftmade. I chose the The Wolford Sconce  because I love the combination of black and brass with the seeded glass. They are perfectly transitional. You can find them HERE

The Progress: 

Laundry Room and Dog Room tile was successfully installed. I even put a drain in the dog room for future puppies.

The floors went from this…

to this… I matched the stain throughout the house.

7 parts Jacobean to 1 part Ebony. 

Today all the trim and the shiplap was picked up today from our local Metrie distributor. Will share my trim details later once there is more to see.  

The shiplap started today in the laundry and dog room. 

Cabinet install is to start Monday…fingers crossed. 

Tune in next Wednesday to see my plan and the next 4 weeks to see my progress (and say a little prayer).

Follow along the other participants too!
