For anyone new who isn’t familiar with the One Room Challenge, it is a six-week design event started by Linda at Calling It Home where designers and DIYers commit to transforming a room in six weeks, and blogging about it once a week. If you want to see our posts leading up to this one, you can do so below:
Now that everyone is caught up, we wanted to share what’s going on with the kitchen. Backsplash is in and looks wonderful. Chairs and counter stools are on site. Appliances are almost all in. We still have to install all the hardware, window treatments, and some of the light fixtures. And then we have the weekend to style it before the photo shoot. We’re gonna be working like crazy until the photographer walks in on Monday!!But it’s worth it! By the way, we realized we never shared the list of appliances, so here they are:
We’re so happy with the way the kitchen looks so far, and we love the appliances our clients picked. We think they’ll look perfect in the kitchen!
Also, we were going through our phones looking for a picture we could use as a sneak peek, we realized we never told you guys about the beautiful sconces that go above the banquette area. We got two of these beautiful Robert Abbey sconces:
They look wonderful in the space!
Also, we never shared our beautiful hardware:
We love how well the Lucite hardware works in this kitchen! We got these at LuxHoldups on Etsy.
And finally, here are a couple of pictures of the current state of the kitchen:
We can’t wait to get all the blue tape out and all the beautiful styling accessories in!
We can’t believe how lucky we’ve been with this ORC!! We have been able to avoid any big problems, which is fantastic, and at this point we can say with at least a little bit of confidence that we should be done by the time the photographer walks in… We think. Seriously though, we’re only a few days away from having this room the way we pictured it a while back, and that’s the amazing thing about the One Room Challenge: it gives you the motivation to work on a room faster than you would otherwise, and it is so rewarding in the end 🙂
We’ll be back next week with the reveal, but in the meantime, make sure you check out all the wonderful ORC projects from both featured designers and guest participants. And if you want to stay tuned to us and what we’re doing, you can follow us on Facebook and Instagram!!
