One Room Challenge | Week Five

The deadline is looming in the One Room Challenge, and most responsible people would spend their fifth week taking care of last-minute business.  I, on the other hand, said, “Hasta luego, Incomplete Space,” and boarded a plane to Tulum, Mexico.  With my head literally in the powdery white sand, I escaped in hopes that I would have time to finish my ORC upon my return.  Photos are happening this Friday so I’m officially off beach mode and frantically pulling all the details together like a mad woman.   

Thankfully while we were gone, Chris trucked along and finished up the kitchen cabinet, installed the remaining lights, and oversaw the countertop installation.  It was fun (or stressful, both) to receive updates via spotty WIFI on how things were progressing.  The countertop fabricators sent me this photo of the bathroom backsplash:I was so excited to see it is just how I imagined it!  And then coming home and seeing it up was a dream!

Photos also came in from the framer of art for the space.  I love how the large 16×20″ knots turned out!

I’ll be spending today and tomorrow hanging art and moving things around obsessively.  Overall, I’m totally loving the space–especially the bathroom!  But, as with most projects, there are a couple of things I’d do differently now that I’m on the flip side.  Every experience is a learning one, that is for sure.

Next week I’ll share some teasers with you of the finished space.  Remember the final reveal is now on November 15!  Thank you, Linda, for leading the charge and helping us to the finish line!  Thank you also to our ORC sponsors who have provided so many options for our projects.
