Hello, friends! Here we are at week 4 of our ORC! Time flies when you’re having fun… well, we must be having a ton of fun then! If you’re new to my blog (welcome, I’m SO glad you’re here!) you’re probably wondering what is the ORC? It’s a One Room Challenge hosted by Linda from Calling It Home and it challenges us to tackle one room or space in our home and transform it during a 6 week period. We check in every Thursday and post our progress. You can check out my week 1 where I shared my plan and goal for my room, my week 2 and week 3.
Before we go on, I really need to stop and say thank you for every single person that reads my blog and for the comments you leave! They encourage me soo much ….
I am happy to say that this week was way more productive than last week! Choosing the perfect paint color can be hard sometimes… especially when it comes to gray’s. Well, when my sweet friend Kristi from Making It In The Mountains (who’s also doing the One Room Challenge) mentioned Benjamin Moore gray owl, I had to check it out. And I loved it! It was the perfect light shade that I was looking for. I am just loving how bright it feels in here now!
It’s always so fun to look back and see how far we’ve come…. let’s take a peek back at those green walls, shall we?
And heres our projects for next week… countertops, sink and faucet!
I’m excited about some goodies we found this weekend! I was getting a little nervous as we’re getting down to the wire! Talking about getting a little stressed, we found out that the countertop we wanted is not available in-store anymore. Well, that’s not too big of a problem considering they can order it in. After they tell us, it’s waaaay more expensive and takes 3-6 weeks to come in!!! I do not have 6 weeks to wait for a countertop!!! They mustn’t have ever heard of the ORC or else they would have put a 3 day rush on it and gotten it in a lot sooner! ha!
Here’s a little close-up of the mirror we found! I love the finish on it… almost like a grey that’s been rubbed with a bit of brown!
I love these baskets that I found at Michaels. It was actually harder than I thought finding the right size… not too big but big enough to hold face cloths and cosmetics. Stay posted, because I’m thinking they’re not going to stay brown! Remember, my goal is white and bright!!! I couldn’t leave that aqua colored basket! It’s not the right color but I’m thinking it would be perfect for toilet paper! Should I spray paint it or leave it as is and find a different spot for it in our home? Lastly, I really like that little basket with the chalkboard sign that I found at Michaels. It doesn’t really show up well, but it’ll be perfect for our kids’ toothbrushes! I didn’t really want them in a cup sitting on the counter and when I saw this I had to have it! When our little guy saw it he said “You can even write toothbrushes on there Mommy!” heehee! He’s on the right track!
- Create a bright and happy room!
(Painting the walls is my #1 priority in this space!!!)
- Get rid of purple counter tops.
- Change sink and faucet.
Get new light fixture.
Pretty shower curtain.
- There’s some awesome shelves behind the door and I want lots of storage baskets and pretty storage containers for here.
- Build some open shelving above the toilet.
- Make hook rack for towels.
Change oak trim to white. Get rid of medicine cabinet and get new mirror.
- Change hardware on cabinets and on main door. (One knob is already changed… had to see how they’d look!)
And just to leave ya’ll with a pretty picture, here’s some cherry blossoms that I picked from our friend’s place! Their place was in total bloom and looked gorgeous! Seems like you should be able to smell them right through the screen!
Thanks again SO much for stopping by and following along on this crazy journey! I don’t know what I’d do without my faithful readers and all the love and comments you leave!! Have a great day everyone! xo
