One Room Challenge Week Six
PLAYING CATCH UP
Since my last blog there was a reel posted on instgram sharing this mood board during week four. The wallpaper selections shown have now been narrowed down to two, and the final selection will be ordered at the top of this week. Fingers crossed it arrives in time to be installed before week eight, as well as paint. Week five and six were a blur. Eight of the fourteen days within the two weeks were spent on vacation in Greece. Zero work completed. Also, the sink I wanted went out of stock. So- What exactly has been accomplished? A much needed mental reset and a ton of inspiration absorbed. That said, I have lots of catching up to do.
The mud room has quickly become a drop zone since we moved in. For those new here, we just moved into our new home mid March. Therefore home items (new and old), items moved but still packed, an extra mini fridge, shoes kicked off, and more.
As of last week's end the majority of the room has been cleared. This upcoming week the room will be cleared, demo, and plumbing are planned. If the plumbing work runs smoothly, flooring and paint should be happening by the weekend.
The thought of not meeting any deadline comes with anxiety, especially in design projects. Having participated in the ORC three times in the past, I started with the intention to finish...timely. I still absolutely will finish. Even if it takes a little longer this time around. What I've learned very well since my first ORC project in 2020 is that good design takes time. Amazing design takes longer. Week seven is sure to be a full one for this project. I'm looking forward to sharing more details as things begin to take shape. Send positive vibes, because your design Bestie here will need them.
